Very interesting. There was station named Cando in 1929 just north
of Circleville. I have been unable to locate any miles for this
point. Could this be the old name for Ritz?

A 1909 N&W PTT showed Reeses as 4 miles from Lockbourne and 2 miles
to Valley Xing. Below is a list of these stations.

Freight House
Ritts Passing Siding
Bells Siding
Dix (Dix Passing Siding)
Miner (Miner Passing Siding)
Reeses (4 miles from Lockbourne and 2 miles to Valley Xing 1909 ptt)
Valley Crossing (formerly C&HV Crossing)
