Wisterman Ohio class 1921 Virgil Ray is back row 2nd from right age 14.

Nathaniel Rufus or Rufus Nathaniel was hard to trace because he took a different spelling than the rest on the last name. He took Niceswander dropping the "ch."
He was found at home in two censuses, alone in one, and then with wife Della in several. I found and obit for Della on line thus tracing down some of the descendents through that. They had a lot of info I didn't have and I had a lot they didn't have so we all gained from the tracking.
Della Ann (Angeline) Pritchard and Rufus were married on December 25, 1883 in Wisterman Ohio. They had seven children all born and raised in Wisterman, Putnam Co., Ohio, but upon the death of Rufus, Della moved back to the Michigan area and many of the descendents are in that area as well as Ohio.
