Marion F. Aumiller, county superintendent of schools of Dickinson county, Kansas, was born at Racine, Meigs county, Ohio, Feb. 2, 1866, a son of Jonathan and Anna (Browning) Aumiller. The father was a well known Ohio river steamboat captain on boats engaged in Pittsburgh, Louisville and Cincinnati trade. He died in 1870 and the mother died in 1889.

Marion F. Aumiller received a liberal common school education in the public schools of Racine and Letart, Ohio, later taking a college preparatory course at Carleton College, Syracuse, Ohio. He entered Lebanon University, completing a two-year course in 1890. He then engaged in teaching in Ohio, following that occupation in winter and teaching music in summer.

In the latter '90s he came to Kansas and here he met Miss Grace E. Loyd, then principal of the Carlton public schools, to whom he was married, April 30, 1904. Mrs. Aumiller is a daughter of Benjamin F. and Margaret (Meguire) Loyd. Her father was a wealthy stock farmer of Banner City. He died in 1899 and Mrs. Loyd died in 1910. Immediately after marriage Mr. and Mrs. Aumiller secured a position with the United States government and took steamer for the Orient, visiting extensively in the Hawaiian Islands, Japan and China, and after serving three years in the Philippines in the organization and development of the public schools, made a six months' tour of India, the Mediterranean countries, Egypt, the Holy Land, Continental Europe and Great Britain, returning to New York, June, 1907.

Upon returning to Kansas Mr. Aumiller was elected principal of the Garfield school at Abilene and from this position was elected county superintendent of public instruction for Dickinson county. He refused to accept a second term in order that he and his wife might again enter government service. Mr. and Mrs. Aumiller have one son, Loyd Elston, born Sept. 8, 1909. Mr. Aumiller has a valuable Dickinson county farm, which, together with his splendid Percheron horses, Short Horn cattle, etc., is the source of great satisfaction and pride as well as profit.
