This bicentennial history of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati illuminates the rich story of Catholicism’s foundations and expansion from the Great Lakes to the Ohio River.

In 1821, Edward Dominic Fenwick was appointed to lead a new diocese that included all of Ohio and much of the Northwest Territory. Here, the Church encountered a sparsely settled landscape—with Native Americans, descendants of French fur traders, and newly arrived settlers. Traveling missionaries, most of whom did not speak English, overcame hardship and misunderstanding to offer the Gospel to the Western frontier.

In 1972 Jim Kegley and Doug Everman started a new weekly publication in Wheelersburg Ohio, and called it the Scioto Voice. In 1976 Jim took over complete ownership of the paper. Jim's column appeared in the first published edition, February 8, 1973, and most issues since that time. He named his weekly column "High Notes," Nearly all of the 2,150 issues carried one of his writings--except for occasional lapses where he traveled, had guest writers, or was ill. Although Jim no longer owns the Scioto Voice, his column remains an important feature of the paper as he reminisces and brings the reader up-to-date on the people, places, and events that were so much part of the lives of the people in Scioto County. "High Notes" provides a wonderful history of the area from the 1950s up to the present.

This is a much-needed Ohio reference book and an important social history that covers more than 50 years of children in need and families in despair. In 1866 the Ohio General Assembly authorized the construction of children’s homes in each county and in 1874, Lawrence County opened its children’s home in Ironton. Mrs. Kounse transcribed the hard-to-read microfilm records from this home and added, through her extensive notes, additional information gleaned from newspapers, penitentiary records, boys and girls’ industrial records, blind school records, and personal interviews, among other things. These children were often sent to homes in other cities or counties and all other parties involved, in addition to the children and their parents, have been indexed.“The registers and the numerous footnotes put these children into context and their stories come alive. What a great model for other institutional records and certainly a valuable resource for Lawrence County researches.” –Paul Milner, FORUM Editor

"A sex scandal, blood on the walls of the U.S. Capitol, stories of ghosts--all that is part of Caroline Miller's new book. But, more than that, her well-researched and readable work reminds us again of the fury of the political world, the place of honor in 19th century America, and the tragedy that resulted. It is a story that still has meaning for us today--and Caroline Miller is to be congratulated for rediscovering that forgotten part of the past."---James C. Klotter, State Historian of Kentucky.

"A long-forgotten and little-known story about Kentucky in our nation's capital, Caroline Miller's fascinating and true tale includes politics, murder, sex, and ghosts. Meticulously researched, the scandal centered around a popular Kentucky congressman, rocked Washington, D.C., in the late 1800s, and still leaves us wondering whether justice was done."---Ben Chandler, Executive Director, Kentucky Humanities Council.

Foreword by Gregory Hardman

 

Christian Moerlein was born in Truppach, Bavaria, in 1818. After working as a blacksmith apprentice he learned the trade of brewing from his uncle in Germany. In 1841 he immigrated to America and worked his way from his arrival point in Baltimore to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Wheeling, (West) Virginia; and Portsmouth and Henricksburg, Ohio, before arriving in Cincinnati, Ohio. After many struggles, Moerlein built a brewing company that became an empire. By the time of his death in 1897, it had become the largest brewery in Ohio and one of the five largest in the United States. Although the Christian Moerlein Brewery did not survive Prohibition, the reputation of its founder has only increased in stature as Cincinnati's foremost Over-the-Rhine beer baron whose exceptional brews contributed greatly to Cincinnati's place in the annals of brewing history as a major brewing center. With no journals, letters, or papers left behind, Don Henrich Tolzmann has been able to weave together the life of this legendary brewer through the writings and translations of early biographers and historians with supplemental information on other notable beer barons in the Cincinnati area.

In this historical novel, the Ku Klux Klan thought the town of Donegal, Indiana, would be the perfect place to organize a new chapter. They intended to run out the blacks, Jews, Irish, Catholics, and immigrants so they could gain economic control of the area. What the Klan did not count on was the determination of an Irish Catholic baker who was determined to save his town. Historical facts are skillfully woven into this absorbing story of conflict that pits former good friends, neighbors, and customers against one another while struggling with a declining business environment, family issues, and religious tenets. When the author found proof that his family legend was true, he created the fictional town of Donegal to illustrate the conflict that America went through during the early part of the last century. His research uncovered evidence of Klan actions described in this story, though they may not have occurred specifically in Indiana.

Safe houses, trustworthy individuals, pathways, abandoned shelters, and unattended skiffs--these were crucial pieces of information that were spread, through word or song, from plantation to plantation, by way of the "grapevine." Throughout the Borderlands, this communication would help the slave to find freedom, by way of the Underground Railroad. The conductors and abolitionists on both sides of the Ohio River--consisting of slaves, free men of color, white and black residents, religious men, and other sympathetic citizens--were likely to suffer bodily inflictions, imprisionment, and monetary loss for aiding these fugitives in their flight from slavery and quest for freedom. Caroline Miller skillfully relates their stories through interviews, newspaper accounts, court cases, government records, and other published and unpublished accounts, so that these times, and these people are not forgotten.

Jim LaBarbara, dubbed "The Music Professor," a name given to him when he worked in Cincinnati with WLW, WCKY, WSAI, and WGRR FM, among others. The moniker became prophetic as he earned a master's degree in broadcasting and taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati. A respected musicologist on early rock and roll, he was named one of the "Top 40 Radio Personalities of All Time," is listed in the Rock Jock Hall of Fame, and was inducted into the Radio/Television/Broadcasters Hall of Fame in Akron, Ohio. Working throughout the years under the names of Jimmy Holiday in Meadville, Titusville, and DuBois, Pennsylvania, and J. Bentley Starr in Erie, Pennsylvania, he began using his real name on WKYC and WIXY in Cleveland and Denver.

Jim shares his honest firsthand account of his experience during a dynamic and sometimes turbulent life on and off the radio. He was there when the controversy of playing music performed by black artists was coming to an end, and was later innocently thrust in the middle of the payola scandals. When Jim LaBarbara did his first radio show in 1959 he couldn't have imagined it would lead to a Hall of Fame career that spanned more than fifty years; one where he would work on some of the country's most powerful stations. There have been a couple of "Guardian Angels" in his life and a "Hell's Angel" who saved his life.

For those who grew up in the '50s and the baby boomer generation, along with others interested in pop culture, this story will transport you back to the beginning of rock music. Jim was with the Supremes, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones. He interviewed hundreds of entertainers including Bill Haley, Jackie Wilson, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, James Brown, Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Neil Diamond, John Denver, and others. It is with the help of these interviews that he tells his own story and in so doing gives a unique perspective of the history of rock 'n' roll.

This third book in the history of beer barons in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area tells the story of one of the area's largest breweries. Located in the West End, on the other side of the Miami-Erie Canal bordering the Over-the-Rhine district, the Hauck Brewery was described as a castle, and its president as a "self-made man," and a beer baron. In addition to producing high quality brews, Hauck was president of the German National Bank and, for a time, an owner of the Cincinnati Reds. Well known for philanthropy, Hauck made a lasting contribution to the area by saving the Cincinnati Zoo from financial ruin. His son, Louis J. Hauck, ran the brewery until it closed as a result of Prohibition. However its reputation, and that of its founding father, acquired legendary status in the annals of Cincinnati's brewing heritage, as demonstrated by Hauck's induction into the Beer Baron Hall of Fame and Greater Cincinnati's Business Hall of Fame, showing that his legacy is alive and well as one of Cincinnati's foremost beer barons.

When Ed Mechenbier retired from the U.S. Air Force Reserve in June 2004, he held the distinction of being the oldest former Vietnamese POW and Air Force general still in uniform on flying status.

One of eight children made attending college financially difficult. When his father bet him $5 that he could get an appointment to the Air Force Academy, Ed accepted the challenge. That decision set the course for a career that lasted forty years.

During those years, Ed went from being a high-spirited fighter pilot full of hopes and dreams to a prisoner of war, held in the infamous Hanoi Hilton.

Patrick and Mary O'Brien came to America from the town of Ballinagar, Kings County, Ireland. It was a quiet town about fifty miles west of Dublin. They were not young when they decided to board the ship for America in 1852 as their eight children were adults by that time. Richard Hidy tells an interesting story about his ancestors and the events that could have brought them, and many of their fellow Irishmen, here to America. The Catholic O'Briens and their family settled in the Cincinnati and Springfield, Ohio, area and the author provides an interesting history as to the possible reasons the O'Briens and others chose these areas.
