Benjamin Tibbitts was born in Maine, and was reared to agricultural pursuits. With his wife (Sarah Clark Tibbitts) and nine children he emigrated to Sheboygan County, Wis., in 1846, most of the distance being made by the water route. He purchased in this county eighty acres of partly improved land, which had a small log and frame house upon it. The surrounding country was a perfect wilderness. The first mill-dam in Hingham was erected by Mr. Tibbitts for old Mr. Giddings, now of Fond du Lac, Wis., . Sheboygan was a small village, and Pennsylvania Avenue was the principal thoroughfare. Indians were very plentiful, and deer abounded in the neighborhood. In his political views, he was an old-line Whig, and later became a Republican. He was a friend to the public schools, and assisted in organizing the first one established in Hingham, which was then without a sign of habitation. He was always a friend to the poor and needy, and was upright and honorable in all the walks of life. His wife was also born in the Pine Tree State, and on the 12th of June, 1873, their golden wedding was celebrated, all of the children and most of their grandchildren being present. They are sleeping their last sleep side by side in the Hingham Cemetery, which is located on our subject's farm.

Mr. Lackey was a Republican and for years rendered service as a member of the local school board. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, as is his widow, and at the time of his death was a member of the official board of the same. To him and his wife were born three sons, of whom Doctor Lackey is the youngest, the others being Walter Lackey, of New Burlington, a farmer, and Raymond L.

Lackey began teaching school and for three years thereafter was the teacher of the school in the Buck Run district in Clinton county. He matriculated at the Ohio College of Dentistry and was graduated from that institution with the class of 1896. Thus equipped for the practice of his profession, Doctor Lackey returned to his home at New Burlington and opened an office there, continuing in practice at that place for eighteen months, at the end of which time, in January, 1898, he located at Xenia, where he ever since has been engaged in practice, with present offices in the Steele building. Preparatory to his marriage in 1902, Doctor Lackey built a house at 20 Home avenue, Xenia, where he is still living.
.....Doctor Lackey has been twice married. On September 10, 1902, he was united in marriage to Ada Frances Clark, who was born and reared in Gallia county, this state, and who for nine years prior to her marriage had been engaged as a special teacher at the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Orphans Home at Xenia. To that union were born three children, Clark, born on December 10, 1903; Dorothy, May 9, 1907, and Helen, January 1, 1911. The mother of these children died on March 27, 1914, and on June 30, 1915, Doctor Lackey married Jessella Beebe, who was born at Kingman, Kansas, and who was reared at Elwood Indiana, in which latter city her father, John W. Beebe, is still living. [Source: Michael A. Broadstone, "History of Greene County, Ohio: its people, industries and institutions", Indianapolis, B.F. Bowen, 1918, pg. 654, 6550]

John Hormell was a very generous man. Besides his own eleven children, he raised his step-daughter Sarah Jane Rogers. Note quoted to my Aunt Ruth Piersol from our Great Aunt Mary Piersol: "Mary Ann Gauslin had an illegitimate child, Sarah Jane Rogers...he said it was nothing to her discredit, as she was the wronged party and he brought up Sarah Jane as his own daughter, and at the time of his last illness said that he had a little bit of writing that he must do to see that justice was done. He did his writing, and had it witnessed so that Sarah Jane Rogers would be provided for. This "writing: was in addition to his regular will. He "John Hormell" also raised his nephew John Smith, son of his sister Nancy Hormell Smith; and one other girl Alice Macklefresh. (by Olive Emerson on FamilySearch)

Leven Elias Leeth can be found in various records as Leaven, Leven, Elevin and Levan. I used the spelling most often found on his documents. I believe he was probably named after a great grandfather whose name was Levin Harnanson. Levin is the more common spelling for this name.

MEMORIES.... by Charlotte (Leeth) Beck
The thing I remember most about grandpa was that he never smiled, never cracked a joke, was very strict and very religious. He wore a long handlebar mustache and none of the kids liked it when he kissed them, including me. Grandpa and Grandma Leeth lived with us for awhile in Lancaster, Ohio.

During the Civil War, Leven remembered the day that an official rode up to the parents house on a bay horse to serve draft orders to his father and how his mother cried, however, his father did as many others of his time did, paid the customary bounty, in this case it was three hundred dollars, to a fellow to act as a substitute in his place. As a result of this, his father was still around at the time of Morgan's raid on the area in Pike's County. There was a number of men who stood guard over various bridges to prevent Morgan and his men from blowing them up. Also during his younger days, there was an incident which the local reservoir was blown up. It was done by a well organized group of approximately 100 men who loaded a half ton of dynamite into a wagon and one night blew it up which flows into the Maumee river. No one was hurt and there was no investigation. Many farmers got their land that was taken away because of the reservoir. Leven first came to Paulding County in 1872 when he was 16 years old. The old canal was still in commission at that time and was used for freight. It wasn't long afterwards that the last boat was to leave Antwerp by the Maumee river which was loaded with lumber. Leven was one of the men to help load the boat for the last historical trip on the canal. Leven worked in the Tile Mills near East Liberty and after Almina died, he moved to Paulding.
