Jody - James Stithem was my grandfather. Lived around Richwood, Ohio in his earlier years. Died in Marion, County, Ohio at the Marion General Hospital in the 1950's. Wife was the former Ada Dixon of New Iberia, Ohio. Had one son and two daughters. Re-married several times. Second wife's name was Ruth.
At one time, he owned four (4) farms in Union County. Was also a welding foreman for the Marion Power Shovel Company. Would appreciate any information about the family since I know very little about them. You seem to have more names than I do.
Thanks in advance.
