Cousins Charles A Eicher, and Family, Minnie Stupp, Elizabeth "Betty" William H in Miamisburg OH in the 20th Century

I first met my cousin Billy Eicher, William A Eicher nine years back at his father's memorial service in Dayton Ohio. He has his father's, William Henry Eicher's, Grandfathers, CA Eicher's and his aunts, Ethyl Elizabeth Eicher's archives that he gave me to scan and put in the context of our shared genealogy.  He is visiting Minnesota this week for a job interview, Thanks Billy for sharing these.
