Jennings Moss Celebrates 90th Birthday The weather outside was dreary; but the scene inside the dining room o f the B rentwood Health Care Center. in Sagamore Hills. OH, was festive and gay as over 70 family, relatives. and friends gathered on Sunday. De- cember 14.2008. to celebrate the 90th birthday of Jennings Moss. Jennings was born on December 15.1918. at the home of his grandpar- ents on Bull Run (Gilmer County). His mother. Gertude (Hite) Moss was living with her in-laws while Jennings' father. William J. Moss, was serving his ume in the U.S. Army during World War I. He spent his early youth on Spruce Run. where the family owned a farm. but during the Great Depression were forced to move to the John Fishback Holler on Stewarts Creek. He received his early education at Baldwin School and later graduated from Sand Fork High School in 1937. Jennings at- tended Glenville State College for a few semesters and this is where he met his future wife. Maude Jones. of Nicholas County. Due to the scarcity of jobs in the area, Jennings eventu- ally made his way to Cleveland. OH in early 1940. He found employment in the manufacturing sector, eventu- ally bcoming a skilled tool and die maker. In the meantime, he and Maude had gotten married and started a fam- ily. After serving in the Navy during World War II. he returned to Cleve- land and resumed his work in the tool and die-making trade. During the early 50s, he opened his own toolmaking business and carried it on success- fully for 40 years. His wife passed away in 1990 from a sudden heart attack, but not before seeing their two sons continue to run the business as their own.
