Fourth generation apple farmer, Alton Tecumseh Lynd moved his wife Vesta & 6 sons (youngest was Arnold, age 2) from South Point Ohio and purchased an 80 acre orchard when his wife Vesta convinced him if they sold their South Point, OH orchard and bought the one in Licking County, they could improve their apple marketing opportunities in the booming Columbus market. Not only could the business grow, but she could join her sister on shopping expeditions to Lazarus, Columbus’ new department store where they sold dresses from Paris!
