J. Russell Tustin. Mr. J. Russell Tustin of Columbus, Ohio, a
former resident of Ashville, passed away October 24, 1961.
He threshed and saw milled in that community from an early age
until the combine took over. After that he continued to keep steam
engines and for several years he held a Get-together each fall, the
last one being held on October 21, 1961 with four traction engines
fired one portable that he threshed with and a very old hand feed
and drag stacker.
Mr. Tustin was an active member and officer of The Miami Valley
Steam Threshers Association.
He will be missed but remembered by many people to whom he gave
so much friendship and pleasure
