He came to Iowa the same year and located in Ottumwa, and two years later engaged in business with Mr. J. Prugh, the firm consisting of Mr. Prugh and himself, and known as J. Prugh & Co.

      Major Wyman has always been a republican, as his father and grandfather on both sides were before him. He has been quite active and influential in the politics of his state. His military ancestry and training led him to take an interest in the Iowa National guard, with which he has been actively associated for fifteen years or more. He is now serving his sixth term as military secretary to the governor, which is longer than any other man in the United States ever held this position. He had previously served as first lieutenant, acting regimental adjutant, and quartermaster, and as brigade quartermaster. He is one of the best known and most popular military men in the state. Major Wyman is a thirty-second degree Mason and Knight Templar and Knight of Pythias, besides belonging to other orders. He is a member of the Society of the Sons of the American Revolution and is either a member of, or eligible to membership in, nearly all the colonial societies. His people held various military and civil positions. One of his ancestors on his motter's side was assistant governor of the Massachusetts Bay colony, under Governor Winthrop. He belongs to the Episcopal church. Mr. Wyman was married in 1876 to Alice Prugh, a daughter of his late partner. They have one son, William Charles Wyman, born in 1882.
