          Notes

     

    Tileston graduated from high school in 1867 and became a school teacher. A couple of years later he started to study law and, in 1873, was admitted to the bar. He eventually specialised in real estate law. He was secretary and counsel to the Homestead Building and Savings Association, and later secretary of the Muskingum County Fair Association. He established and became president of the Spangler Realty Company. From 1892 to 1898, Tileston was directory of the City and County Workhouse. On November 1, 1889, he helped organize the People's Savings Bank (later absorbed by the Citizens' National Bank, becoming its first president. He was also the leading organizer of the Guardian Trust and Safe Deposit Company of Zanesville, becoming its first vice-president and manager and later its president.

    In 1883, Tileston served on the military staff of the Hon. George Hoadley (Governor of Ohio) as aide-de-camp with the rank of colonel. In 1889 he served in a similar capacity to the Hon. James E. Campbell. From this time on, he was known as Colonel Tileston Spangler.

    Tileston was active in a number of civic works, including Zanesville's first Park Commission, and was president of the Ohio Canal Association. He was also a member of Mechanics' Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a member of the Amity Lodge and afficiated with the Royal Arch Masons, Cyrene Commandery of the Knights Templar, Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, Sciotic Consistory of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite, and the Putnam Presbyterian Church where he served as elder.

    Tileston was very interested in history - particularly the history of Zanesville. His research in genealogy led to confirmation that this branch of my family is descended from John Alden and Priscilla Mullins of the Mayflower. He also wrote a book on the Spangler family history, and was a member of both the Sons of the American Revolution and the Sons of the War of 1812.

    The Muskingum County Bar Association commented on his death as follows:

    Colonel Spangler was a shining example of what one with the early disadvantages of life could accomplish. He was persistent and patient, careful and painstaking, and one who valued friendship to a marked degree. He gained success and prominence by his own efforts and it can be said of him that he was a self-made man. But he would not have attained to such heights had it not been for his extraordinary ability. Much can be said of his many admirable qualities and his character as a man and a citizen, but it is sufficient to say that there is no one in our community who enjoyed a wider and more prominent position in public esteem and regard than did he ...

    A recognized figure for so many years, Colonel Spangler became synonymous with Zanesville and all the good and progressive things in it. He will be missed greatly, but the things that he did, the things that he said, his many kind acts, will live as monuments of his honest endeavor.

      Not as we take, but as we give
      Not as we pray, but as we live
      These are things that make for peace
      Both now and after time shall cease.
