Our State Librarian and past Membership Chairman, Glenda Thompson, has been having problems with peripheral vascular

doing well, but I know she would appreciate a card or an encouraging word by e-mail. Her address is 106 Ewing Ct.,
Union, OH 45322-8768 and her e-mail address is GlendaMT@aol.com
And remember, PRAYER HELPS!

The Ohio Genealogical Society (OGS), Cemetery Committee
has started a project and would like to have your help.
This project is to collect as much information as possible on all DAR, SAR veterans who are buried in
The purpose is to put all information on a database that would be located in Mansfield at the OGS Library.
All researchers would have a valuable resource in which to gather history.
The OSDAR Revolutionary Soldiers Rosters, Vol.1, 11, and 111 have been a great help.
We need to continue from there and go forward. Gather photos, stories, etc.--- whatever you
discover or is in your possession and share with us. Visit cemeteries and take photos.
Credit will be given to contributors in the database.

In 1794, Christian Waldschmidt, a veteran of the American Revolution, moved his family to a site on the Little Miami River
and built a new community called New Germany. In 1804, he built his home, which included a store. Waldschmidt was a businessman
and encouraged new settlement, staffing a church and helping to found a school, and beginning industries vital to the survival
of his new home
Over the years, the house fell into disuse and near ruin. In 1941, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Kroger of Cincinnati, who had purchased
the property, gave the house to the Ohio Society Daughters of the American Revolution (OSDAR) and donated $5,000 to start
the restoration. Immediately following WWII, OSDAR began the restoration. In 1953, the house was dedicated and opened to the
public as a museum.
