A small world...

by Fuchs on 01/29/12

Last night Steve and I had the pleasure of meeting Ann and Don Hutzel, the parents of a friend of mine.  It turns out that Ann's father, Dr. William E. Mishler, was Chief Surgeon for the Erie Railroad and also good friends with Cyrus Eaton and Walter Tuohy of the C&O.  These families bought neighboring farmland near Cleveland, Ohio.  Ann went on a number of office car trips with her father and was also the Tuohy's guest at C&O's Greenbrier Resort at White Sulphur Springs, WV.

Meanwhile, Don Hutzel met Cyrus Eaton while taking part in shorthorn show cattle transactions as a Penn State University student.  After graduation, Don managed Cyrus Eaton's Ohio show cattle farm, Acadia, and in his words "wound up marrying the girl next door."  Don reported to Mr. Eaton when he visited Acadia, and among other travels with the show stock also visited the Pugwash farm in Canada, site of the international peace meetings.  Today, Don is president of the Canal Society of Ohio.
