Odd Harmony in Their Birth-Dates
Odd is the harmony of birthdates in the family annals of Mr. and Mrs.
James Stochl, the Solonites, whose son, Charles James Stochl, died in
service just five years ago yesterday, on October 11, 1918, one month
before the glad tiding of the Armistice came to the brave boy. Mrs.
Stochl made application during the current week for the bonus that
Charlie earned, ere his gold star came to him. Two of the Stochl boys,
were born on November 20th, and two of the girls, on Nov. 22nd. These
were four of twelve children, ten of whom survive.
