I have been asked to deliver the talk at this year’s Annual Meeting of the Southern Lorain County Historical Society, i.e. the Spirit of ’76 Museum. If you are interested in attending, it will be held on Thursday, November 12th at 6PM, at the First United Methodist Church of Wellington. There will be a dinner, a brief review of the year’s accomplishments, then…well, me. I’ll be speaking on the Howk family and their journey from Massachusetts to Wellington in 1818 with an emancipated slave called Dean. My working title is, “Into the Wilderness: A Massachusetts Household Emigrates to Ohio.”

Tickets are $12/person and that is for the dinner (your choice: chicken or pork with vegetables, salad and dessert). Reservations are requested no later than November 6th. Full details will soon be coming to museum members in their October newsletter, including a form to complete and mail in with check payment. If you aren’t a museum member but are interested in attending, contact the museum directly or leave me a message below and I will put you in touch with the appropriate parties. Hope to see you there!
