  • Notes 
    • After Thomas Gates Lisle graduated from Ohio State University, he and a partner went into business in Houston, Texas. The business failed when Tom's partner took away all of the business's money and left. They hired Artemesia Davidson of Houston to work for them as a secretary. In 1910, Tom married Artemesia. Because of the business failure, Tom took a job in Birmingham, Alabama, where their first son Thomas Davidson Lisle was born in 1911. Shortly afterwards, Tom and his family moved back to Ohio where eventually he bought a variety store in Clyde, Ohio, about 1915. Herbert Lisle was born at their home on Buckeye Street in Clyde in 1916. Sometime later, the Lisles moved into an apartment over the store on Main Street in Clyde.
