SuAnn Farnlacher spoke with Amy Souder, May 28, 1999... Ruth Wolfe is Amy's niece. Martin's house was on Walnut Street, east of Westerville. It was the first house east of the stream on Lee Road. The original house has been remodeled; now it's brown. English's house... two houses west, where the sign "Carl Souder -- straw" was. That was Amy's brother. Next to Carl Souder, "Nick's house, further west... three houses in a row", sold it to Souders and moved to a house closer to dam. Nick (Farnlacher) burned off some land, got caught in the fire. He got gangrene, subsequently killed himself with a gun... at about age 93 years. Amy's parents, Ralph Souder and Mary Schmidt lived on 350 acres at 605 and Central College Road. They were quite well-off. The present farm has several barns. The house was built in 1809 and is of brick construction. There was a wisteria (sp?) trellace to the front door. The farm was sold to Wexner's organization which had first option to buy. Amy's two brothers, Clark and Elmer, never married. Their home was "probably a pig stye". Elmer became sick and died in 1998; Clark is now in a nursing home.
