Travel Tips for Richmond

Jill's "Homestead" Search

by deecat

CLICK PICTURE WHICH IS PANORAMIC

Just over the Indiana border in Prebble County, Ohio, Jill had us go on a "homestead hunt" for John Woodward's homestead. It took some doing, some turning around (because of wrong direction) [Jill and I are both directionally handicapped!], and some perseverance on our part, but we did find it.

Jill Martin wrote this portion:

My great-great-great grandfather, John Woodward (1770-1824), was one of the
many Quakers from North Carolina who moved to eastern Indiana in the early
1800s. I had a map giving the location of his quarter section of land in
Jackson Township, Wayne County, Indiana. The land was a quarter mile south
of the National Road (Highway 40) and its eastern edge was Washington Road,
just east of Germantown.

Equipped with the map, we travelled the National Road west from Richmond,
just as my ancestor had done in 1814 and turned on Washington Road. The turn
was made more difficult because of construction on Highway 40 in preparation
for the June celebration of this, our first "interstate" road. We went a
half mile down the road and turned around, parked along the road and began
taking photos of the woods and fields. We moved the car toward a house and
distant barn, taking more photos. A woman from the house greeted us, heard of my genealogy, said she
was adescendant of Michael Crull who had purchased the land from a "John Wood," and invited us in to the house after we walked to photograph the nineteenth
century barn. This wonderfully hospitable woman was a genealogist (in fact, we have a Quaker surname in common, so may be distantly related) who showed
me land patents and abstracts of the land on which our ancestors both lived.

Just one great example of the wonderful hospitality of the Hoosiers of Wayne
County that I¹ll never forget!

Is it Woodward or Wood (ironically, deecat's maiden name is Wood)? The plot thickens!

Historic "Gem" in East-Central Indiana

by deecat

"Richmond, Indiana: Echoes of the Past..."

We added two days to our trip to Ohio and traveled via Indiana so that we could stop in Wayne County and the town of Richmond, Indiana. Jill needed information for her geneology research, and we are both glad that we decided to extend our time.

Richmond, Indiana, has much to offer those of us who love history (especially the Civil War), architecture (especially historic districts), and music (especially Jazz Heritage). Well, Richmond has all that and more.

As a bonus, we were fortunate to stay in a beautiful Victorian Bed and Breakfast right in town. It's true, as we visited this lovely area, we could hear echoes of the past, of the Historic National Road, the Gennett Record Company, the Courthouse Battle, and runaway slaves hid at the Levi Coffin House
