     "Herman Otha, who was born December 9, 1977, near Little Falls. From early childhood he loved books and the reading of them which was often practiced in turn on a good story around the family hearthstone in the lewed log house on the farm at Harold. After completing the eighth grade of public schools he attended "Summer Normals", passed the teacher's examination
for certification, and began teaching in 1898. He taught for ten years; then after working his way through the Normal Department of Marshall College at Huntington, West Virginia, he taught in the high schools of Taylor County. In
1918 during the World War he was employed in the office of the Thomas Shoe
Company, Charleston, West Virginia, where he remained until the company closed business May 1, 1929. He is now employed in the office of E.O. Royal Inc., Charleston. After being graduated from Marshal College he continued his education at the University of West Viginia during summer terms, completing three years of college work. He was married August 25, 1909, to Anna Olive Fox
who was a teacher in the public schools. She was the daughter of Camden and
