PETER DITTOE, JR., raised a farmer, left home at the age of nineteen, learned telegraphing; took position in St. Louis as tuner and repairer of pianos and organs, afterwards in Cincinnati in the same
position, and after four years thus spent, he began, business on his own account. After trying his business in Covington and Baltimore, he settled in Evansville, Indiana, in 1872, where he became eminently successful, and in 1879 he returned to Mount Harrison, saved it from going into the hands of strangers, and is making it his home. November 21st, 1867, he was united in marriage to Mary Aloysia Zinn, daughter of Peter Zinn, of Wheeling, West Virginia. It seldom happens that so young a man, starting out in life when only nineteen, succeeds in achieving sufficient means to purchase so fine an estate, and retiring so early from active life, surrounded with so many of its real comforts and means of happiness.
