  CHRISTOPHER DOMITIO, a pioneer merchant of Wauseon, O., was born in the city of Pfalzburg, Lorain, Germany, at that time belonging to France.  His father's name was also Christopher Domitio who died when the son was only three years old.  His wife survived him only eight years.  Thrown on his own resources at the early age of eleven years, the subject of this sketch deserves all the more credit for having made a successful business man of himself.  He received an elementary education in the public schools of Pfalzburg.  After quitting school he set to work to learn the tailor's trade in his native city.  Standing little show of promotion in his native city, he emigrated to America, locating first at Cincinnati, O., where he worked for a time at his trade.  In 1859 he came to Wauseon, where he embarked in the gent's furnishing and clothing business, which he has ever since so successfully conducted.  Without meddling with the affairs of others, he applied himself closely to his own business, and by dint of hard work and reasonable economy has built up a trade second to no other of the same kind in that part of the State.  He came to Wauseon as a skillful mechanic, and his claims were soon acknowledged by all who had occasion to utilize his services.  There is today no more popular and highly respected citizen in Wauseon than Mr. Domitio.  By dealing fairly with his patrons, charging only a reasonable profit, he has deservedly won the confidence of all who have had dealings with him.  As long as the business is conducted along these lines it must continue to grow, a fact well known to the subject of this sketch.  He married Miss Mary Scott, the daughter of John and Mary Ann (Graham) Scott, natives of the Holmes county, O., who settled on a fine farm in Clinton township, Fulton county, in an early day.  Mr. and Mrs. Domitio have had two children, both daughters.  They are: Nellie, the wife of T. W. McKinley, of Denver, Colo., and Lora, now Mrs. Charles Shindler, a druggist of Toledo, O.
