I have a correction from last week. We thanked Patsy for the Easter decorations in our downtown flower pots but I was told it was actually her grandson Zayne who did all the decorating. Thanks Zayne, they are very pretty.
Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): Continuing with the children of Newton Darlinton, Martha born in 1875 was the next child. She married Thomas “Jeff” Jacobs and they lived in Winchester and raised their 10 children. Jeff died in 1933 and Martha was 90 years old when she died in 1965. They are both buried in the local cemetery. Their first child was Edward born in 1892 when Martha was 17. He graduated from Winchester H. S. in 1909 . He went to Dayton and married Nell McColly in 1910. They later moved to Cincinnati, where he died in 1952 and they are both buried there. Next was Charles who was born in 1895 and graduated in 1914. He was working in Dayton in 1917 when he enlisted in the 1st World War. He served in France and was discharged in 1919. He married Mary Mechlin in Norwood in 1927. She was from Winchester and in his graduating class. She died in 1933 and Charlie died in 1960 and they are buried here. continued
