Biography of J. Douglass Moler
Springfield, Clark County, OH Biographies





J. DOUGLASS MOLER, City Civil Engineer, Springfield. John D. Moler has been City Engineer of Springfield for fifteen years, a period covering its best growth and most rapid expansion which is of itself a sufficient commentary upon his thorough efficiency and capability in his profession. Mr. Moler is 45 years old, having been born July 8, 1836, six miles from Springfield, on the National road. On the very day after attaining his majority, he commenced life in the right way by marrying Miss Ella A. Dushane, of Logan County, but originally from Pennsylvania, who, after bearing him two sons and journeying through twenty three years of life with him, was taken from him by the hand of Providence in March of last year. Their first son, William, is teaching in the State Reform School at Lancaster, Ohio, and the second, Harry, is a fanner in Logan Co., Ohio. Mr. Moler was ten years in the United States military service, in the Provost Marshal's office at Columbus, Ohio, then raised Co. E, of the 184th O. V. I., their principal service being the guarding of the railroad between Nashville and Chattanooga, Tenn. Mr. Moler is now busily engaged drafting plans for projected city water works, which are urgently needed by reason of the rapid growth of the city, and, as proposed, they will not only be a great acquisition to the city, but are to be of sufficient extent and capacity to meet the demand that a greatly augmented population will make on its resources. Mr. Moler is tall in stature, intelligent looking, deliberate, humorous, genial, and a man you would naturally trust without other guaranty than his appearance and manners.
