Captain Richard L. Myers, 4th Kentucky Infantry

Thanks to the generosity of Jack Myers of Tiffin, Ohio, the Hayes Center Manuscripts Division now has typed transcriptions of more than 100 Civil War letters of Captain Richard L. Myers, 4th Kentucky Infantry to his wife Mary Chestnut Myers, Rockcastle, Kentucky.

Brough Family Photographs

Larry Brough donated 28 original photographs of Brough (Brugh) ancestors who settled in Northwest Ohio in the 1830s. He featured these in his publication Larry B. Brough's Fifty-two Year Collection. Best of all, Larry has identified each and added a biographical sketch on the reverse!

Charles & Jesse Biehler Family Sacrifice in WWII

Lester Biehler



I had the privilege of meeting Mildred Biehler Lipstraw of Oak Harbor, Ohio. She had seen our news release regarding the Northwest Ohio Veterans Oral History Project.
She wanted to tell me of the extraordinary sacrifice of her family during World War II. At left is a picture of her brother, Lester, who died in the Normandy Invasion. Go to Ohio's Yesterdays to read the story and see pictures of her brothers.
