Picture of the local Church where my grandparents attended

I found a pamphlet about the Fortieth Anniversary of the Dedication of the St. John’s Evangelical and Reformed Church
Whetstone Township, Crawford Co. Ohio Sunday June 17, 1945
This is the same church where I went to summer Bible school… it was only a few miles from the farm.


From the county land records, my father discovered that this is also the section of land our ancestors purchase when they first came to Ohio; they sold this parcel and purchased the land where the farm remains yet today. This old church is still there too…it has however changed, as all things do…
