Lloyd N. Wornstaff
Lloyd N. Wornstaff, prominent among Ashley's younger generation of business men and citizens, is superintendent of the village schools. He is a native of Oxford Township, having been born on the old home place September 19, 1881, and is a son of Sperry and Mary E. ( Weiser) Wornstaff.
Upon the completion of his early educational training in the public schools of Ashley, Mr. Wornstaff matriculated at Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware, and in 1905 received the degree of A. B. The following autumn his professional career as an instructor began with the position as superintendent of the schools at Shauck, Ohio, in which capacity he served two years. So successful was he in his work that in 1907 he was called to fill a similar position in the schools of his home town of which he is a graduate. He is assisted in his work by a corps of five teachers and it is a curious fact that every one of them is a resident of Ashley and a graduate of the school in which he now teaches.
June 12. 1907, Mr. Wornstaff was united in marriage with Elizabeth Wilt, who was born in Ashley and is a daughter of J. F. and Emma (Clifton) Wilt. After completing the prescribed course in the public schools of her home town, she attended Ohio Wesleyan University and was graduated in 1903 in vocal and instrumental music. This was supplemerited by a course of study in the Chicago Conservatory of Music, after which she engaged in teaching and concert work in Chicago for two years. Endowed with a voice of quality and having received the most careful training her work met with flattering success. Fraternally Mr. Wornstaff is a member of the college order Phi Delta Theta. He also belongs to the Ashley Lodge of Free Masons.
