    I work for the Greene County Public Library in Cedarville. Our book discussion group is planning to discuss Allan W. Eckert’s book Time of Terror sometime later in 2013. I was wondering if there is someone from your Library who could join us when we do discuss the book (in person or virtually by Facetime) to bring out further historical aspects related to the flood. We typically meet the last Monday of each month.
    Thank you for any help you might be able to provide.

    Hello Lisa,

    I would be interested in any pictures you would have of Henry Brown or Kitty Patterson of Dayton. In particular their wedding. My GGG Grandfather was James Brown (Henry’s brother). Their parents were Abraham Brown and Margaret Kirkham of Belspring, VA. Per the historical Dayton records, James was the only Brown relative who attended the wedding at the Patterson Homestead in Dayton. James worked with Henry trading with the Miami Indians prior to the war of 1812 when hostilities between the Americans and the Miami increased dramatically. James was a farmer on a plot of land in the farthest southwest corner of Miami County that is west of the Miami River (Bethel Township), just north of Dayton. The two brothers moved from the Belspring, VA area as young men in the army. I’d be amiss to say that I wonder in the picture of the Patterson Gristmill who the two gentlemen are by the lower level door. I’ve very much enjoyed learning about Henry Brown and the Patterson family in particular. Especially Patterson’s somewhat contemptuous relationship with Dayton residents who were not fond of his slave owning. The Dayton Library has been extremely helpful with the genealogy work.

    Quick question about the Dayton Wright Aircraft Company:
    In William B. Harwood’s book “Raise Heaven and Earth” he states that Wright Martin had added Standard Aircraft Company to their corporation in 1917?
    I’m having problems finding any support documents confirming that Standard Aircraft was ever owned by Wright Martin, or Dayton Wright Aircraft.
    I’m hoping you might be able to provide clarification on this?
    Thank you!
