The scanned Elyria, Ohio newspapers out on ancestry have provided me with a new focus on my husbands, paternal great grandfather, August Charles Farschman--real estate mogul. ;-D
Through the early 1900's, August had a candy, tobacco and billard establishment on Broadway in Lorain. To supplement his income, he also was employed in a local dairy and at the National Stove Company. By 1920 August had purchased property on 12th Avenue (Street?) in Lorain and two years later he owned property in Axel where he ran a gasoline station and grocery store until about 1932.
The following newspaper clippings show that August had some additional real estate transactions in Lorain County.
