T.L. Ringham was born in Voss Norway. March 29. 1850. On the 21st day of April 1872 he emigrated to America settling in Chicago where he engaged in the tailoring busi­ness. On Octo­ber 27, 1882. he came to Northwood, and soon afterward formed a partnership with J. B. Thompson and S. B. Lund, under the firm name of Thompson, Lund & Ringham. This firm conducted a general merchandise business in Northwood for eight years.

In 1890 Miss Ellen Stott having resigned her position as county recorder, Mr. Ringham was chosen as her suc­cessor, withdrawing from active business life to accept the position. So well did he perform the duties of this office that he was four times re-elected, retiring in 1899 after having served a period of almost nine years. Upon with­drawing from the recorder's office he was immediately elected assistant cashier of the Northwood Banking Com­pany, a position which he held for eight years.

Jan. 1st. of the present year, he resigned this position his health requiring that he spend more time in the open air. Since his retirement he has been kept constantly busy looking after the affairs of those who through years of experience have learned to prize his integrity and good judgment.

Mr. Ringham was married in Chicago on the 29th of March, 1876, choosing for a helpmeet Miss Inger Hart. They have four daughters, Bertha, Lillian, Amanda and Ida.
