The will was drawn January 8, 1949.
- Will published in Chillicothe Gazette.
I found it in my Grandfather, Talmadge G. Smallridge's papers. The Rosie B. Fout listed in the will was Rosa B. (Burt) Fout, the sister of my Grandmother, Edna Iola (Burt) Smallridge. Rosie married Clifford E. Fout, who was one of the nine children of Nancy Sophrone (Salts) Fout, who was Rosetta's and my great Grandmother, Eliza Ella (Salts) Smallridge's sister.
The Salts, The Smallridges, The Burts, The Arbaughs, The Fouts and The Millers were all from Harrison Township in Vinton County, and grew up together, and married each other.
As mining and the timber businesses died out in Vinton County, everyone migrated to Ross, Pickaway and Fairfield Counties to follow the growth of new industries and jobs.
But then there was Rosetta and Nancy and Eliza's brother, Marion Salts, that is named in the will who packed up his wife and two children and moved to Oregon.
Today, Vinton County has a population of less than 14,000, and is one of the poorest of the 88 counties in Ohio.
