Monday, May 16, 2016:  Mark and Paula found themselves in Milan, Ohio. 
They visited the resting place of Paula's paternal grandparents...Reinier and Mabel Timman. 
Milan is also the birthplace of famous inventor Thomas Edison (1847 - 1931).  You owe the light bulb and phonograph to this prolific man.
There is a square in the middle of town lit by Edison light bulbs.
The city center has a gazebo for speeches along with a statue of a young Thomas Edison and his mother. 
Paula spent more time talking with relatives and looking over 100-year old photos of her ancestors.  There was a lot to learn.  
Mark told Paula that the more she digs into family history, the more likely she is to discover a horse thief! 
Raccoons find this town interesting too.

Quote of the day:    Always something to learn.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
