  7. Hi. I work for a television show and I was hoping to talk to you about using your June 8th photo of the soldier and the washboard. Let me know if this would be possible!

    • I have no problem with you using the picture but it is one I took at the Columbus Washboard Factory. Perhaps you should clear it with them first. I do not have an email address for them but you can contact them through their website: . Thanks for noticing the special picture!

  8. Hello. I have a small web designing business in Carrollton. I was recently redesigning my own website and wanted to include photos of some local historical landmarks. I would like permission to use a few photos from your site.

  9. Thank you for visiting the Ohio River Museum in Marietta, Ohio. Your information regarding the W.P. Snyder, Jr. is not entirely correct. The Snyder was launched February 21, 1918 as the W.H. Clingerman. Her name was changed in May, 1938 to the J.L. Perry and again in the spring of 1945 when she was renamed the A-1. She became the W.P. Snyder, Jr. in the fall of 1945 after the Crucible Steel Company of America bought her and named her for their president and CEO. She was built with a steel hull in 1918 but because steel hulls were new to construction, the hog chains were added to guarantee strength. Later, it was proved that the steel hulls were strong enough and the hog chains were no longer needed.

    • Thank you for the additional information after reading my Gypsy Road Trip. I always appreciate correct information as it is not possible for me to research all sources. The Ohio River Museum read and approved this when I posted it. Enjoy your day, Bev

    Am searching for information about canals in the Dover area (not the Ohio/Erie )and read your blog about Dover and wanted to correct a bit of information you had in there. The way to Dover is to exit interstate 77 not interstate 70 at exit 83. There is quite a distance between the two.

    • Thanks for reading my blog. I live in Cambridge where I-70 passes through so made the mistake and I admit it. In the ten posts I had about Dover only the ones about Reeves Mansion had the incorrect interstate listed. It has been changed. I appreciate your pointing that out as I-70 and I-77 intersect at my hometown of Cambridge.

    I would like to have your permission to feature a small portion of the posting regarding Frieda Warther’s Button Collection in the Oregon State Button Society newsletter “The Bulletin.”
    I am the Editor and I feel this travel information would be of great interest to collectors on the west coast. You may visit our website at
    Thanks so much for your generous consideration of my request, I will certainly send you a copy of the issue in which this appears.
