Reverend Jake Reigel: Converted Bootlegger ~ 1909 Lima Ohio Trade Token

"Rev. Jake Reigel, a converted bootlegger from Lima, Ohio. "

Reigel & Co. trade token, circa 1909. This trade token guide says it's from a Lima, Ohio store.

I found the above quote that confirms Jake Reigel came from Lima, dealing in bootleg liquor, but I haven't tied him to a business location in Lima.

Reverend Jake Reigel found religion, and held a tent meeting in Fostoria Ohio in the 1930s. That became the Pilgrim Holiness Church. Reigel stayed in Fostoria until 1938, when he left to start other Pilgrim Holiness Churches.  [Source]
