Darke County Genealogy to Feature Guest Speaker

The Darke County Genealogy will have speaker, Connor Keiser. He is a 21-year-old college student, who will speak on his heritage in Darke County. He is a fifth generation grandson of James and Sophia Clemens, the founders of Longtown in Liberty Twp., Darke County. James Clemens was the first “free” person of color to purchase land in Darke County. James also had a role in the Underground Railroad.

This should be an interesting program. All are welcome. Sep 6, 2015, Sunday at 2:00 p.m. at Garst Museum, 205 N Broadway, Greenville, OH. In the Lowell Thomas Room.

This is sponsored by the Darke County Genealogical Society. There will be a meeting following this and light refreshments.
