"Ohio Legends, Every Picture Tells a Story"

The Darke County Genealogical Society will feature Jeff Wilson presenting Ohio Legends, Every Picture Tells a Story, on Sunday, April 8, 2018, at 2 p.m. at Garst Museum.

Jeff Wilson has co-owned and operated a sign shop in Vandalia, Ohio, with his wife Patti, for over 30 years. His occupation has required him to wear many hats and render all forms of commercial art. In addition to truck lettering, ad art for all manner of print projects and exterior signs, he has done portraits of local business leaders and editorial cartoons. His cartoons have appeared in local papers and Collision Magazine. Over time, Jeff’s interest in local Ohio history prompted him to start “Ohio Legends”. Ohio’s unique and interesting history is a subject that is remarkable and incredibly diverse. Even more intriguing are the stories of the people who have lived here: Thomas Edison, the Wright Brothers, Edgar Cayce, Clark Gable, Paul Newman, Hallie Berry, and Devo; all Buckeyes! Ohio has it all, visionaries, bad men, celebrities, inventors, crackpots, and crazies. Jeff has written and illustrated two volumes of what he has named “Ohio Legends: Every Picture Tells a Story”, a collection of all that is odd and remarkable about the Buckeye State.

This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served following the presentation as well as the regular meeting of the Genealogy Society.
