Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time in 1889 on the long and winding road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, the matriarch of the Brown family, Jeanette Brown, died tragically in the house my parents call home.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused in the summer of 1889 on the long and winding road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, Marion DeCalb Britton was convicted of fatally shooting his brother-in-law John Brown at the Parker House Hotel a year earlier, but the judge tossed the verdict and ordered a new trial upon the ground of juror misconduct.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as the old Parker House Hotel in Hillsboro is set to be demolished this week in 2020, 133 years ago in 1888, my third great-uncle, John Brown, was fatally shot at that very site.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time along the road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, it was the summer of 1888, and John Brown had been shot twice at the Parker House in uptown Hillsboro on Aug. 4.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in the 1880 United States Federal Census, John Brown was listed as farming the land his late father, Joshua Brown (1807-67), founded, and was living with his 66-year-old mother, Jeannette, and his older sister, Mary.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time along the road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, we were in the spring of 1888 and John Brown and his brother-in-law Marion Britton had just had a heated argument after Brown’s sister, Mary, had broken off her engagement to Britton at the behest of her brother.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time along the road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, we were in the late 1880s and a bitter family feud was brewing.
