Jeremiah (2) was a representative of the agriculture interest of Franklin County. He belongs to one of the oldest agricultural families in Ohio and the nation. His grand-father Jeremiah (1), was born in Suffolk County, Long Island in 1789, New York, and came to the state of Ohio in 1811.
His ancestors being of "Puritan" stock made them well adapted to cope with and well fitted them to meet the dangerous conditions they had to meet in developing this country and the northwest frontier, making it now the leading agricultural section of this day.
He was born in Canaan Township, Madison County, Ohio, a son of Henry (4). He spent the first twenty-three years of his life in the county of his nativity. In the spring of 1864, after his discharge from the service, he accompanied his parents on their removal to Washington, Township, Franklin County, Ohio.
He was educated in the common school during the winter months, and in the summer worked on the farm until the Civil War when he enlisted September 21, 1861 at the age of 20 at Camp Chase as a private of Company K., First Cavalry under the command of Captain Forshee and Colonel Smith.
He participated in the battles of Farmington, Boonville, Blackland and Corinth, Mississippi; Bardstown and Perryville, Kentucky; Franklinton and Stone River, Tennessee; Russelville and Courtland, Alabama. At the last named on the 25th day of July 1862, all his company with the exception of sixteen were captured. He, however, was fortunate enough to escape.
There was fighting daily from Manchester to Shiloh, Tennessee. He was on the skirmish line and scouting day and night. In June 1862, he participated in the seige of Corinth. Owing to a disability received in the line of duty, he was discharged at Laverne, Tennessee, on Feb. 27, 1863. His discharge carried the following: "By the physical condition of the soldier, what-so ever may occur renders him unfit for the Army."
Returning to his home, it was some time before he recovered sufficiently to resume farming. On December 15, 1864, he was united in marriage to Eleanor Sager, daughter of John and Margaret (Bogan-Wright) Sager, of Amity, Canaan Township, Madison County, Ohio.
After his marriage, he entered jointly with his uncle Jonnie Norton, farming until 1870, when he purchased his home of 10 acres from Rachel Warner, and also 60 acres, from his father, the west half of the Barnard Elrich farm. In later years he purchased 12 1/2 acres belonging to the heirs of Enick Brittingham, which joined his farm on the south making his holding of 80 1/2 acres in Washington Township, Franklin County, Ohio. As the result of his well directed efforts, he was the possessor of a comfortable competence.
He was a member of the John A. Spellman Post, Grand Army of the Republic of Hilliards, Ohio. He was a stalwart Republican supporter, unchangeable in his advocacy of its principles. He was true and loyal to his duties of citizenship always, as when he followed "Old Glory" National Emblem on the southern battle fields.
The second golden wedding anniversary of the Dominy family was on Tuesday the 15th day of December 1914, at the farm home of Jeremiah (2) and Eleanor Sager Dominy, a candle light affair in commemoration of their marriage.
Present were only the immediate family, the groom being an invalid for the last eleven years of his life.
For this occasion, the wedding dinner consisted of fried and stewed chicken, the wedding cake in the center of the cable with 50 candles of red, white, and blue, pies, and other dainties to grace the table on such an occasion.
At the close of dinner, their son, Newton, and their daughter-in-law, Anna, presented to each a two and half gold dollar in honor of their long life and happy marriage.
This happy marriage continued annually til their 56th wedding anniversary, then death doth - call'd the groom to the great beyond - June 18, 1921. Quoting:
"You have told us you will not forget us
In the years which shall come and shall go!
When thy sympathy, love and devotion
Were warmed in my loving heart glow."
SEVENTH GENERATION:- or eighth in line.
DOMINY, NEWTON J., Born July 1, 1872. Franklin County, Ohio. MARRIED:- December 15, 1896, to ANNA MAY MITCHELL, Born June 23, 1875, Dublin, Ohio. Died September 4, 1953. Age 78 years.

ELEANOR MELVINA., Born March 6, 1903. Married Charles W. Lewis. RUTHELLA., Born November 27, 1905. Married Henry Albert Termeer.
MILITARY SERVICE:- Registered. Hospital Corps.
RESIDENT:- East Warren Street, Columbus, Ohio, removed to 29 South High, Dublin, Franklin County, Ohio.
Newton was reared upon the farm and his education began in the school of old Sub-district No. 6, in that day commonly known as "Dominy's College" because the location was upon land owned by Grand-father and four Dominy families were represented therein.
I've seen enrolled in chat old one room school not less than 50 to 80 girls and boys from six to twenty-one years old, taking advantage of the opportunity afforded them.
What man does not like to recall his old school days, and let his mind wander back, in these few lines, to the only living school mate-today, as we started to school more than seventy five years ago?
I've wandered back to old sub-district No. 6. I've sat beneath the tree, an elm it used to be.
Upon the school house playing ground, which sheltered you and me;
But none were left to meet me, Abe, and few are left to know.
Who played with us upon the grass, some 75 years ago.
The old school house is altered now, the benches have been replaced now.
By a home, that has taken it over now.
But the same old bricks are in the walls, the old bell does not swing, Abe, as it did some 75 years ago.
The spring that bubbled, neath the hill, is very low;
And kneeling down, dear Abe, to get a drink was startled so,
To see how much, I changed since 75 years ago.
But few are left of our old class, excepting you and me.
And when our time is come, Abe, and we are called to go;
I hope they will lay us where we played, more than 75 years ago.
Years have passed and the old school has ceased its usefulness. From this school there has been a continuous improvement in buildings and method of teaching year by year, by the modern centralized schools of the township. I went three years to high school at Hilliards, Ohio.
In 1892, the Ohio Medical College moved into its new building on North Park Street, Columbus, Ohio, offering courses in Medicine, Surgery, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Nurses training. In the fall of 1893, I entered Ohio Medical College, graduating in the spring of 1896.
While attending medical college I took advance training in Physiological and Clinical Chemistry with Microscopy, relative to Plant action and Animal energy on the human system.
Acting as assistant in the chemical laboratory, I had the honor of making two "Quantative Toxicological Analysis and Diagnosis", of suspected cases of poisoning. The analysis showed and proved that they had been given Arsenic and Morphine in quantity to produce the desired results.
The Ohio Medical College united with the Starling Medical College, and after consolidation became the Ohio Medical University, which is now absorbed by the Ohio State University, and is now known as the College of Medicine, College of Dentistry and College of Nursing - with advanced training in the Science-Art of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing - formed the great "Medical Center" - to Ohio State University, which, I am proud to be a part thereof.
I followed the profession as a Pharmaceutical Chemist until 1905, however owing to ill health and through the advice of physicans I quit the practice taking up carpentry in 1906. In 1913 I entered the contracting business until 1926.
In boyhood days, I had the desire to attend rallies with father and grand-father, as there were in those days marching delegations carrying banners "Symbolic of their Views".
I went with them to Columbus to attend the Foraker - Reed rally in behalf of the election of McKinley for Governor of Ohio. I was delegated to carry a very large banner, as it seemed no one else cared to tackle it. The banner was four feet long, two feet wide and thirty inches high, with a row of lighted candles through the center, suspended on a shaft high above my head.
The line of match was from the east front of the State Capitol, south on Third to Main Street, west to High Street, thence north to Goodale Street, west to the old Goodale Park skating rink building, where the speeches were made.
When on the march I was greeted from the sidewalks - "You're a well greased boy!" and I would answer back, "It's McKinley grease, will all come out in the wash! - by cracky!" With flares making the line of march the colors of the rainbow, it was a beauty to behold.
My political activity started in 1908, when elected to the Republican State Central Comittee representing my township, in said body continuously until 1926, then getting the appointment as postmaster at Dublin, Ohio, continuing as such for a period of eleven years-resigning.
I was elected eighteen years as Clerk-Treasurer of the township. By virtue of said office was exofficio clerk of the township Board of Education, and was the foremost instigator in the consolidation and centralization of the schools of the township, for the better education of its children.
Served two terms as First Deputy County Recorder, also four years as First Assistant Fire Marshal of Investigation. I am a firm believer in representative Government, as drawn by our fore-fathers, backed by, and based on, Jeffersonian principles, given us through the Declaration of Independence, as laid down by the Constitution.
If we as a Nation adhere to these, our prosperity will be untouched, and our livelihood excelled by none.

Lewis, 6066 Flora Villa Drive, and Mrs. N. A. Termeer Sr., 25 South High Street, Dublin, Ohio, and nine grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
The third golden wedding celebration to appear in the Dominy family, was held Sunday, the 15th day of December 1946.
This happy event was the fiftieth anniversary of the marriage of Newton J. and Anna Mitchell Dominy. Dinner was served at high noon by the Dublin Night Club, the table being decorated for the occasion , - to the immediate family.
At one o'clock P.M. their home at 29 South High, Dublin was thrown open til five o'clock P.M., and again from seven o'clock til ten o'clock P.M. to receive their relatives and many friends. Our record book for the occasion gives more than 200 names.
On the table in the center of the dining room, - candle lighted, was a large white Wedding cake - decorated with a bride and groom, given by their daughters - service served by Ruthella Termeer, and Eleanor Lewis, daughters; Margaret Michel, niece, and Patricia Hovorka, granddaughter.
The bride at two o'clock, assisted by the groom cut the cake, service began - each received a hunk of cake, ice cream with a golden bell in center, and a cup of coffee, as many times as each cared to be served.
Before the serving ceremony began, the parents of Eleanor and Ruthella presented to them the two and half dollar gold pieces that had been given to their grandparents (Jeremiah and Eleanor Dominy) in 1914, as a momento to father and mother (Newton J. and Anna M. Dominy) on their golden wedding.
They received from their many relatives and dear friends beautiful gifts and floral decorations, in memory of the occasion.
Now for each year the family - honors the marriage date, up to the present 1952, we celebrated our fifty-sixth wedding anniversary, but, a fatal accident - 73 days before, came and severed the golden link that would have bound us "together" for another year's celebration.
This golden age in the Dominy's family is quite remarkable-these three golden weddings within "The Course of Time", one hundred and seventy-four years or one and three quarter centuries - of bliss and blessed happiness.
This photo was taken on Tuesday the third day of May 1904, on the third birthday of Corliss Newton, great grand-son of Henry (4), - who took flight - August 18, 1904.

The ages of this generation is 189 years, almost two centuries of life span. Quoting
from William Cullen Bryant:
"So live that, when the summons come to join
The innumerable caravan, which moves
To that mysterious realm where each stall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
Scourged to his dungeon; but, sustained and soothed.
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."

This scholarship is awarded annually by the Dispatch, is for $400. The money is placed to the credit of the winner at the school of his choice to be drawn on as he needs it during his college training.
Besides the above, he also won other awards, The Otterbein Scholarship award of $150 and the North West Kiwanis Club award of $150, these for outstanding scholarship and leadership in his school and community.
Carrying the Dispatch is a family affair. The Termeer boys have been on the job for years. Dick, 18, scholarship winner, also holding down the job. He inherited it from his two older brothers, who had been on the route more than ten years. His little brother Gary is being groomed ready to take the place.
