    Charles C. Proctor. The manufacturing interests of Piqua are worthily and capably represented by Charles C. Proctor, secretary of the Wood Shovel and Tool Company, who was born on a farm in Shelby county, Ohio, February 17, 1879, a son of G. W. and Sarah (Hetzler) Proctor. G. W. Proctor, in addition to being a successful and industrious agriculturist, was active in the political life of Shelby county, where he was the incumbent of a number of minor public offices. He and his wife were the parents of seven children: William P., Elmer, Albert, Frank C., Charles C.; Mrs. Jennie Snodgrass, the wife of L. T. Snodgrass, and Eva May, wife of E. N. Middleton. Charles C. Proctor was educated in the country schools of Shelby county and at the Sidney High School, after leaving which he entered the employ of the Wood Shovel and Tool Company in a clerical capacity. Through successive promotion he worked his way upward to the post of secretary, an office which he has capably filled since 1912. His abilities have caused him to be placed high in the estimation of his associates and those with whom he has come into contact in, a business way. Mr. Proctor married Grace Elma, daughter of J. E. and Trene Moore, of Shelby county, and to this union there were born two sons: Clifford C. and Paul E. Mr. Proctor rendered a great deal of personal service in the various war movements, loan drives, etc., and as an official of the Wood Shovel and Tool Company also did much in an industrial way, as this concern manufactured a preponderance of the entrenching shovels carried by the American doughboys into the trenches of France. He is fraternally affiliated with the Masons and the Knights of Pythias, and belongs to the United Commercial Travelers and the Piqua Club. His religious connection is with the Methodist church, to which also belongs Mrs. Proctor, who was active in all the women's movements attendant to the successful carrying on of the war.
