    William W. Sando, whose standing as a citizen of Miami county is very high and who has been intimately connected with the commercial growth and development of this locality for a number of years, is the proprietor of a flourishing tile mill at Bloomer, Mr. Sando was born on a farm in Monroe township, Darke county, Ohio, April 6, 1857, a son of Samuel and Celia (Hill) Sando. His father, who engaged in the timber industry and owned a sawmill, was held in high esteem in his community. He and his wife had ten children: William W., Sylvanus, Ulysses, who died when two years of age; John, Mary, wife of W. W. Woods; Judson, Warren, Rosella, and Russell, and a baby who died in infancy. John Sando had one son, Roy, who served in the United States Army Signal corps during the World war. William W. Sando was reared on the home farm in Darke county, where he acquired a public school education. As a youth he adopted the profession of school-teaching, which he followed for some five years in the rural districts, and then came to Bloomer, in 1880, and embarked in the sawmill business. Three years later he started his present tile mill, which he has since conducted with much success, although he continued the sawmill business until 1906, when he sold out. For two years he was also the proprietor of a general store at Bloomer, and made a success of all of his enterprises. In business circles Mr. Sando is well known as a man of sound integrity and straightforward dealing, one who possesses the confidence of his associates and the general public. He has been industrious in his undertakings, making the most of his opportunities, but while his personal interests have been engrossing and important, he has found time also for community affairs, and has always discharged the duties of good citizenship in the fullest degree. He has not been a seeker for public office. Mr. Sando was united in marriage with Lucinda, daughter of Jacob and Rebecca (Hollinger) Hebb, and to this union there have been born three children: Iva, who is the wife of Hubert Smith, and Maude, the wife of Sherman Brubaker, both of Miami county, and a child who died at the age of sixteen months.
