Candidate for Fourth Ward, Elyria, Ohio (1902)

Source: The Weekly Chronicle (Elyria, Ohio), April 5, 1902, page 4.

This snippet listing the candidates for 4th Ward of the City of Elyria, Ohio in 1902 lists my paternal great-granduncle, William Clifford LeMASTER (1871-1922) as a candidate.  He was successful in the election.

I have enjoyed scouring through the newspaper collections of Elyria at, obtaining tidbits of information about his life.

William was born in Darke County, Ohio, grew up in Jay County, Indiana and moved to Elyria, Lorain County, Ohio shortly after his marriage in 1892.  He lived there until 1904, when he moved west to Colorado.
