Ladies and gentlemen, after last week’s offering that detailed when Bernice Brown, my first cousin three times removed, was visited by a pair of masked men at her home near Hoagland, someone reached out to me asking if the intruders who tied the 74-year-old up in the winter of 1965 and left her for two to three days were ever caught.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in last week’s offering, we examined how the Brown homestead left the family in the 1890s, only to have it bought back by my grandfather in 1942. While that land left the family for about a half century, a 52.853-acre portion of my parents’ 700-acre farm has been in continuous family ownership since 1860.

    Ladies and gentlemen, my great-great-great-grandparents, Joshua and Jeanette Brown, built a two-story brick farmhouse in the 1840s where my parents, Ken and Judy Roush, reside today. Less than a year ago, the office of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and the Ohio Department of Agriculture recognized the farm as an Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm.

    Joshua and Jeanette built the two-story brick farmhouse – in which I was raised – back in the 1840s. Several times during the “Ghost stories” series, I referenced an old photograph of the Brown family that hung in the same spot in the homestead for most of my life, but had been recently moved to a new location and was replaced by a clock.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time at the beginning of the 20th century on the long and winding road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, we finally wrapped up the John Brown/Marion Britton saga that began in the 1880s and in a way never ended until Britton and Mary Brown Roush passed away in the 1930s.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time at the beginning of the 20th century 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 governor of Ohio and fellow Civil War veteran pardoned Marion DeCalb Britton, who had been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting his brother-in-law, John Brown, at the Parker House in uptown Hillsboro back in 1888.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time in 1899 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 Ohio State Board of Pardons issued a recommendation that Marion Britton remain in prison to serve a life sentence for fatally shooting his brother-in-law, John Brown, at the Parker House in uptown Hillsboro back in 1888.

    Ladies and gentlemen, 2020 will go down as the year that COVID-19 caused us to be sequestered at home during times we would normally be out and about. For Marion Britton, he spent the 1890s sequestered behind bars after being convicted twice for the murder of his brother-in-law, John Brown, in 1888.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time in 1893 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 Britton, my third-great-uncle by marriage, had pleaded guilty prior to a retrial in Chillicothe to killing my third-great-uncle, John Brown, in 1888 at the Parker House in uptown Hillsboro.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time in 1880s on the long and winding road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, we talked about how my great-great-uncle, Wesley Kenneth Roush (whose name is the exact same as my dad’s), perished tragically on his very first birthday.
