Wallace W. Six helped to save Myrta A., Mildred J., and Roy A. Nash and Lena G. Johnson from drowning, Glen Ebon, Ohio, March 14, 1907. In a 12-foot, flat-bottomed boat, Six, 52, miner, and a companion paddled three-quarters of a mile in the floodwaters of the Hocking River, the current running 7 m.p.h., to the Nash home. They succeeded in avoiding trees till near the house, when they struck one, and Six tumbled into the water. After much difficulty, he got into the boat again, and he and his companion went to the house and took Mrs. Nash, 31, her two children, Mildred, 4, and Roy, 1, and Lena, 17, aboard. Steering clear of floating debris and trees, they paddled a half-mile to shore.
