My mother’s father was Glen Maurice Eidemiller born 3Dec 1888 of W. Tippecanoe OH.

I think that location was a mistake because he lived in Covington and his father is buried in Covington cemetery 40.1307 -84.3533 thus he was more probably born in Tipp City 39.9609 -84.1787

1906 Covington, Ohio Football Team: Row 1 – Russell Minton, Bob Stolz. Row 2 – Albert Landis, Frank Black, Homer Wright, Roscoe Steele. Row 3 – Carol Flory, James Bartmess, Lester Faulkner. Top Row – Fred Holsinger, Lee Black, Joe Ullery, Glen Eidemiller, Neth Schilling. (40.1184, -84.3513)

This picture is from Buccsfootball.com and I attempted to clean it up a bit. This is the towns first team and the full uniform outfit with no padding or helmets. It was a bit dangerous to play and in their second game resulted in a broken leg. Their first game was against Tippecanoe, (39.9638, -84.1837) Glen’s home town, which is even now a small town and its difficult to imagine how they could get up a team of twelve players. After another injury the sport was abandoned for 37 years until 1947. By that year I had lived under my grandfather’s roof about half of my life- time of some twelve years and remember him and my grandmother still talking about Covington and Tipp city quite often. I was living with him when in 1941 I attended my first school at Homedale Idaho. It was a one room affair with a coat rack at the back and my aunt Millie at the front trying to teach first, second and third grades simultaneously. That may have been particularly difficult task with me as I had started a year early. I liked to talk a lot apparently and she spent the first several days trying to convince me that in the classroom I had to raise my hand before I could speak. “But, Millie—I do have my hand up!”

Googling Glen Eidemiller also got me his brother’s from a WWI draft registration
