I guarantee that the Dayton History Books Online community knows infinity more than I do. Maybe they can chip in with more details and correct my mistakes. As I mentioned, I'm piecing much of this together from public records, various genealogy resources, and my own knowledge, which may or may not be completely accurate , but I'm giving it my best.

So who do you want to know more about, CP?

I'm loving this! I know they aren't as famous as the Pattersons and others, but have you seen anything about the Burkhardt and Gummer families? The Gummers lived in that big house on Huffman that is now a sorority house. I live in the neighborhood of Burkhardt's meat factory.

Can you give me a cross street and a more detailed description of the house, so I can place it? If you have an address, that would be even better. It's been many years since I lived in Dayton, although I still have extended family there and visit occasionally. I know the Burkhardt & Gummer names, but the details are a little fuzzy. Okay, a lot fuzzy. I'll see what I can turn up.

Personally, I'm intrigued by the Steeles and would like to know what happened to their descendants. I went to school with Steeles and always wondered if they had a connection to the old high school's namesake.

Okay, my memory has been jogged now. The Italiante house on Huffman Avenue in the Eastern Hills neighborhood is on the National Registry of Historic Places, and it belonged to Henry Gummer, who started Gem City Stoves. I read somewhere (it may have been Dayton History Books On-line) that Gem City Stoves was the origin of Dayton's nickname: the Gem City. Henry's son married Susan Burkhardt. If this is the right family, I'll dig deeper.

Not off the top of my head. Can you give me a little context? What was their business?

Oh, wait a minute! I know that street. It's in the Carrmonte neighborhood, right?

Sorry no idea. When I was growing up in Southern Hills in the 60's the Crauder house was the largest in the neighborhood, was still occuppied by a Mrs. Crauder. Crauder Ave. is one of the main streets through SH.

Was their house on Crauder Avenue? I can try looking it up in an old Dayton directory and see where that goes.

BTW, if anybody else wants to jump in, please do. I could happily research all day long, but my family would probably like me to set aside a little time for them tonight.
