According to Ancestry.com Rollo Earl Mongold (1907-1989) of Lynchburg, was the son of Frannie F. Mongold (1877-1948) and Ina Viola Sanderson (1881-1911). He was married to Louella Davis (1917-1990) and Mary Alice Whitford (1909-1963) and had four children with the latter, including Margaret Joanne Pfister of Lynchburg (1930-2006), Mary K. Workman of Milford, and Thomas Mongold of Wilmington.
Rollo also had three older brothers, Robert Willard "Shorty" (1898-1975), Roy David (1900-1986) who lived in Clark, Ohio, and James William (1905-1983). Shorty was the only brother who lived in New Vienna. He was a good friend of CJ's, and his Southern Ohio Tool & Die Co.'s manufacturing of farm gates, was instrumental in CJ's settling with his family in New Vienna.
HH adds that by the mid-1900s most farmers switched from livestock production to grain farming, and the need for farm gates greatly diminished. Southern Ohio Tool & Die eventually ceased operations and the original building, which had a dirt floor, was demolished during a Wells expansion.
