A Look Back at Life 130 years ago in the Village of Greenfield (Highland County) Ohio

Recalling how life was 130 years ago in Greenfield, Highland County Ohio, where many of the Limes ancestors lived in the village — and not far from it — in both Highland and Fayette Counties.

This snippet from the “Greenfield” column includes a tidbit about Mrs. William Limes. The Mrs. William Limes in this story was Savilla Jane Beals (Beals was often shown as Bales back then; and so we see it in this instance.) Her father was Noble Beals and her mother was Margaret Ann Berry Beals. Savilla Jane was married to William Limes II.  Their first-born child was named Noble Harrison “AKA Harry” Limes.

Included are the rest of the Greenfield news items of the day.

Greenfield is the second largest city in Highland County after the county seat of Hillsboro.

Hope you enjoy the look back!
