    W. H. Chronerberry. During the past thirty years, W. H. Chronerberry has been the proprietor of a thriving clothing business at Piqua, which has grown from small proportions to an enterprise of marked pretensions under his capable management. Mr. Chronerberry was born in Miami county, Ohio, January 11, 1870, a son of John and Bridget (Maher) Chronerberry, natives of Ireland, and received his education at St. Mary's School, Piqua. He became identified with the clothing business about 1890, and from that time to the present has conducted a clothing and tailoring business at Piqua, where his patrons include some of the leading people of the city. His workmanship, general ability, promptness and courtesy have won him many friends, and in business circles his rating is that of a man of integrity and sound business principles. Mr. Chronerberry married Anna, daughter of Daniel and Bridget Murphy, and to this union there have been born: Joe who is associated with his father in business; Raymond, who is employed at the plant of the Favorite Stove & Range Company, Piqua; Richard, who is still attending school; Mary, who is employed at the factory of the Piqua Handle Company, and Margaret, who is attending school. Both Richard and Joe saw active service in the great World war. The latter was over seas for twenty months with the first division and took part in the heavy fighting around Chateau-Thieriy, and the former was in France for eighteen months and also participated in engagements at the front.
