  • Notes 
    • “As a boy Ernest worked hard on a dairy farm. As a young man he became interested in making his fortune in the oil business and invested money and bought and sold oil leases on potential oil properties. He became general manager and secretary of the Ohio Red River Oil Company. When the company was dissolved in the 1920’s, he and Emma with their four children moved to Akron, Ohio.

      “It was at this time that he discovered his true calling in life; his interest in dietetics and massage led him to the discovery of his gift of healing. During his life with God’s direction Ernest has helped many people toward a more healthy and worthwhile life. This background in the art of healing influenced his son Otho and his grandson Evan to become osteopathic physicians.

      “Ernest’s pleasing personality and mischievous brown eyes are enhanced by his sense of humor. The telling of jokes, stories and parables is part of his ability to reach people. He always seems to top one story with another.

      “His hobby has always been fishing. After Emma’s death and later upon retirement he and his second wife, Dorothy, emigrated to Lanark, Ontario, Canada, where they bought a farm on the Little Mississippi River. There they built cabins in a beautiful cedar grove and operated a fishing camp.

      “He and Dorothy now have returned to the United States and are living in San Diego, California.” [15]
