Well, I added the Notables template to his profile, since he qualifies as notable. He also belongs in Category: US Representatives from Ohio.

Some other categories I would add are Category:Marietta, Ohio, Category:Columbus, Ohio, and Category:Newark, Ohio. He seems to have been an important citizen of these three places (and possibly also other places), so another contributor researching someone who lived in those places might appreciate a pointer to this profile.

He also could be placed in Category: Business Owners

Thanks Ellen.  I appreciate the help because I am just beginning to add categories to my profiles.  APPRECIATION TO YOU !!

I added the categories you suggested.  Also I added "Arborists" and "oil."  I think those two additional categories are ok, if not let me know.

Cheryl
