The Ohio Genealogical Society gave recognition today for a member of my family being in Ohio before Ohio became a state. Thanks to James and Sallie McConnell coming to Ohio before Ohio was a state, I earned First Families of Ohio status with the pre-statehood designation.
They got married in Kentucky and came across the Ohio River, probably, in 1798. I could prove it in 1802.
I missed the actual ceremony which was held today in Sandusky, but my family can celebrate nonetheless.
