Notes re: John Ludt:

Book of Youngstown & Mahoning Valley page 368- he had a puyblic education and worked in the boiler shopas a young man and for the railroads. Top pay on the railroad at that time was about $1.00 a day. In 1885 he founded The Business House of John Ludt. He dealt in hot air furnaces and also perfected an organization for doing all classes of sheet metal work and later became an etensive contractor for slate, tin and gravel roofing. He was the founder and active in this enterprise for thirty years until his death on November 26, 1915.

He was a democrate and was elected as a member of the city council. He is buried in a private Moselium in Belmont Cemetery.

The 1870 census shows Philip’s occupation as “dryman” ; Frank and Peter as working in Boiler shop; John as apprentice tinnery; William as a cigar maker; It also shows 3 other children
