“History, Mystery, Mayhem and Murder”

The Darke County Genealogical Society would like to invite members and the public to a special presentation, “History, Mystery, Mayhem and Murder”, on Sunday, March 1, at 2:00 p.m., in the Lowell Thomas Conference room at Garst Museum.

Angie Hoschouer, Manager of Development & Marketing of Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum in Dayton, OH, will keep you on the edge of your seat with chilling tales of Dayton’s own bank robbers, counterfeiters and murderers as well as toss in a few surprises of local origin. Who confessed on their deathbed of murdering pretty 18 year old Christine Kett? Did Rose Shafor really dress up as a man to help her lover commit a crime? Who killed Julius Kruse: And was the Cincinnati Ripper living in Dayton: These stories are told in graphic detail in this chilling presentation.

Angie Hoschouer was a seven year volunteer before becoming employed at Woodland Cemetery working in several areas including marketing, historical research and actor portrayal. She has an extensive background in genealogical research and has traced her biological family back to the 1700’s in Ireland. She is a founding member of the Randolph Twp. Historical Society, a member of the Ohio Genealogical Society with status as a First Family of Ohio, First Family of Greene County and a member of the Society of Civil War Families of Ohio.

There is no cost to attend this presentation. Light refreshments will be served.
