  • Ed Bousman spread the gospel around the world

    Ladies and gentlemen, in the 1960s, Ed Bousman had a dream. This dream became a reality when Ed went to his congregation at the Lynchburg Church of Christ one Sunday morning with a challenge for them to go home and ask God for something impossible.

    When I was digging through my “history cabinet” this morning, I stumbled onto a list of Hillsboro businesses that were doing business back in 1961. It was given to me by the community’s good friend, Bob Hodson. It might surprise you that there were more than 154 businesses in Hillsboro in 1961.

    Ladies and gentlemen, after last week’s offering that detailed when Bernice Brown, my first cousin three times removed, was visited by a pair of masked men at her home near Hoagland, someone reached out to me asking if the intruders who tied the 74-year-old up in the winter of 1965 and left her for two to three days were ever caught.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in last week’s offering, we examined how the Brown homestead left the family in the 1890s, only to have it bought back by my grandfather in 1942. While that land left the family for about a half century, a 52.853-acre portion of my parents’ 700-acre farm has been in continuous family ownership since 1860.

    Ladies and gentlemen, my great-great-great-grandparents, Joshua and Jeanette Brown, built a two-story brick farmhouse in the 1840s where my parents, Ken and Judy Roush, reside today. Less than a year ago, the office of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and the Ohio Department of Agriculture recognized the farm as an Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm.

  • The road to the sesquicentennial: Coincidences – or not?

    Joshua and Jeanette built the two-story brick farmhouse – in which I was raised – back in the 1840s. Several times during the “Ghost stories” series, I referenced an old photograph of the Brown family that hung in the same spot in the homestead for most of my life, but had been recently moved to a new location and was replaced by a clock.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time at the beginning of the 20th century on the long and winding road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, we finally wrapped up the John Brown/Marion Britton saga that began in the 1880s and in a way never ended until Britton and Mary Brown Roush passed away in the 1930s.
