Jane Gramlich, Special Collections Librarian, has won prizes for two genealogy articles in an annual competition sponsored by the Ohio Genealogical Society. Jane ’s first place article, “From the Banks of Muddy Creek to the Shores of Lake Erie: Peter and Mary Cowell Rush of Euclid, Ohio,” is a study of her fifth great-grandparents and the family’s origins in Greene County, Pennsylvania. This article will be published in the OGS journal Ohio Records and Pioneer Families.
Jane’s second place article, “Badly Broke Down: The Battle John Demaline Lost,” is a study of her second great-grandfather’s Civil War pension file. He was a private in Companies C and G of the 67th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The article will be published in Ohio Civil War Genealogy Journal.
Last year, Jane won first prize for “Out of the Unity of Friends: The Remarkable Legacy of Abner and Mercy Heston.” This article also traced her ancestral research and was published in Ohio Genealogical Society Quarterly. All of these publications are available to read in the Special Collections Division.
Join us in congratulating Jane on her wins! Congratulations, Jane!
