Birth: Aug. 14, 1882
Clark County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 4, 1951

Orton G. Rust, youngest son of Ira Rust and Adeline Almeda Sturgeon, was born August 14, 1882, one-half mile west of Dialton, Pike Township, Clark County, on a tract of land bought from his grandfather William Rust's quarter section, being the N.W. quarter section at Dialton crossroads and being possessed by William Rust, according to county maps of 1851.

Mr. Rust's family moved to Springfield when he was one year old and returned to Dialton when he was five. He attended school at Dialton until 1895, when, his mother having died January 15, 1894, he went at the age of 12 to live with Peter and Sarah Rockel in Moorefield Township, attending Franklin School and later the National Normal University at Lebanon. He taught school from 1901 to 1903, when he entered the employ of J.W. Parmenter, Springfield, and with him and O.R. Rust, a brother, organized in 1904 the J.W. Parmenter Company, where he remained until 1922 when he became city treasurer of Springfield, holding office until 1924.

On March 7, 1925, Mr. Rust became connected with the "Springfield Sun" and in May 1928, with the combined "Sun" and "News". He was married October 29, 1906 to Helen Dorothy Twomey of Springfield. They were the parents of two daughters, Adeline and Margery.

Aside from local political activities, Mr. Rust's main interests were along the development of a historical consciousness in his section, bearing fruit in the planning and outlining of the Ohio Revolutionary Memorial Trail and the Ohio Revolutionary Memorial sesquicentennial at Springfield in October 1930.

In 1934, Orton G. Rust, through the Historical Publishing Co. of Indianapolis, Indiana published the "History of West Central Ohio".
