Virgil Arlene Wagner and James Orsen Fetterman

Jim was one of 12 children born to Jennie Toleatha Ressler and Charles Oscar Fetterman of Centralia, PA. He married Virgil Arlene, twin daughter of Beulah and Jacob Wagner of Aristes, PA, on December 24, 1939. They moved to Canton, Ohio, in 1940 where they first lived with his brother Lafayette. It was here that they raised a family of two boys and three girls and lived in Canton throughout their marriage.

Jim worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad for a few years and later owned a gas station (Fetterman’s Amoco), and after he sold the gas station, he became a member of the Operating Engineers Union and welded for various companies until his retirement.
