Ralph Broedel's (Margaret Dugan's brother) Navy portrait. Ralph was killed when the engine on his plane failed upon takeoff from an aircraft carrier in June 1944. This was a double hit for the family as Margaret's father John died of the consequences of pneumonia one month earlier. The disease was contracted while moving the family from Meigs Creek, Bristol Twp to a farm North of McConnelsville on the river. The Clevite (Miba) plant and the Ace Hi Drive-in were on property that was part of the farm.
