Hello Nancy,

Another famous man from Ohio! How sad he died that young.

Take care (how is the snow in Ohio? We read about loads of snow in the USA, I hope you are safe) & hugs, Carolien

Hi Nancy, I'm enjoying your post about famous people and places of Ohio. Reading about President Garfield was very interesting and I'd totally forgotten he had been sad.

Your little Valentine puppy is co cute...Happy Valentines Day to you too...hugs, Linda

I am trying to remember which president's memorial I visited when I went as a grand officer to visit one of the other girl's assembly. I need to google the memorials since I can remember how it looked.

Garfield was very busy having children. Wow! Seven. How many did McKinley have? Have to go back and look.

Love and hugs ~
