DAVID M. KITZMILLER, manager of the lumber business of J. W. Kitzmiller, at Medora, is one of the younger business men of the county who are doing much to increase its facilities and add to its financial standing. He was born at Girard, February 10, 1862, and is a son of Martin V. and Mary (Crouch) Kitzmiller. The reader is referred to the biographical sketch of his father for the ancestral history. Our subject grew to manhood in the place of his nativity and acquired a good education in the home school, receiving a diploma after completing his course of study.

After he had attained his majority Mr. Kitzmiller went to Whitehall and worked in a lumber yard of F. F. Worcester four years. He then came to Medora and took charge of the lumber business that had previously been established by his brother. He is looking carefully after the interests of the yard and manages the business efficiently and honorably, so that his dealing with all are of a nature to gain their good will and ensure an increase of trade. Mr. Kitzmiller belongs to the Modern Woodmen of America, and casts his vote with the Republican party.

He has served as Village Clerk and was efficient in office, being orderly in his keeping of records and careful in his inscriptions.

Mr. Kitzmiller has a pleasant home, presided over by an intelligent and estimable woman who became his wife June 23, 1887. She was known in her maidenhood as Miss Luella J. The union has been blest by the birth of a son, who was named Frederick Fulton in honor of the father's employer at Whitehall.
