The Delph Sisters - Secondly, Julia M.

The second child of Philip and Elizabeth Witzgall Delph was named Julia, known as “Julie.”  Julie was born on September 11, 1873 in Monroe Township, Henry County, Ohio.  Julie married Mandus Spangler on December 9, 1894 and they lived in Malinta their whole married life, on Turkeyfoot Street by 1930.  Julie gave birth to one child who did not survive; they had no biological children.
Mandus had quite a few different jobs in his  lifetime – day laborer, carpenter on houses, laborer in a silo factory and by 1930, he worked on bridge construction. Mandus died on February 5, 1941 at about 74.  Julia, however, lived on in Malinta until she had to go to a nursing home in her later years.  She died on April 27, 1967 at the age of 93.  “Aunt Julie” is one I can vaguely remember visiting in her small home in Malinta.
