W.L. BABBITT


Source: The New York Times New York, New York Dec 16, 1895


Crawfordsville , Ind-- Dec 15 --W.L. Babbitt, one of the best-known lumber drummers of the Mississippi Valley is rejoicing over his reunion with his mother, from whom he was stolen 32 years ago. At that time Babbitt's parents, wealthy Chicago people separated. Babbitt was then 5 years old. Soon after the separation he was stolen by his father, who kept him secreted in Missouri. His distracted mother spent all she had in endeavoring to recover her child, but in vain. Finally she removed toNiles, Michigan and later to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio where she lived with a brother. Meantime, her son grew up and learning of his kidnapping sought his mother. Unknown to him, she had assumed her maiden name of Hettie Davis. Babbitt was in NIles, Michigan last week and chanced to tell in a customer's office the story of his life. A man named Hunter happened to be present who had known Mrs. Babbitt during her residence in Niles and through him Babbitt learned! that his mother was alive in Cuyahoga Falls. He hastened there at once, and aj oyful reunion followed. She came with her son to his home in Crawfordsville yesterday. Mrs. Babbitt is a cousin of ex-Postmaster General Bissell.
