R. 3, Cadiz, O.)

Mr. Charles Johnson Reppart, Cadiz, Ohio, died Dec. 9, 1958 at the age of 76 years. Mr. Reppart was retired thresherman having been active in that trade for 56 years. He was a subscriber to the ALBUM and a member of the National Steam Threshers Association, Inc. Mr. Reppart started driving the iron horse over Short creek's hills before he was big enough to see over the boiler. He proved himself capable at handling his responsibilities, though only a boy. Many 'old timer' will remember his shrill whistle at daybreak or at starting time, whether threshing, baling, silo filling, road grading or sawmilling. He was a member of the Church of Christ, in Cadiz, Ohio, and funeral services were held in that church.
