John H Windisch




Photographer: Windisch
Oak Harbor, Ohio

Though John H. Windisch, the photographer, was found in data mostly in Toledo, it is not hard to imagine he worked the small towns within 20 miles of Toledo. Oak Harbor, OH, just 23 miles from Toledo, could be one of them. Oak Harbor is on a rail line directly from Toledo, OH.

And it could be work done just before he moved into Toledo, OH, but no records have been found to support that.

There was another person by the name of John Windisch in Ohio, about the same age, so his location in the early years is a bit uncertain. The years after 1900 tie together with occupations and addresses.
