  1. Hi! I posted the picture above on the “You know you’re from Dennison/Uhrichsville Facebook Group. Some people, myself included, were asking how the buggy got on the second floor, and why was it up there. Can you help us?

    Respectfully,

      • Thanks, Joe! May be good material for a historical scavenger hunt on Facebook. Thanks for letting me access you site. BTW – I read somewhere that a Confederate Soldier who was a POW during the Civil War passed away while being transported on a train, died and was buried at Port Washington. His family was grateful to Port Washington for how that was handled. Know anything about that? In any case, Happy New Year!

        • You are welcome. I placed all of the pictures and stories on the websites (Goshen, Wainwright, Tuscarawas, Gnadenhutten, and Port Washington) for everyone to enjoy. I grew up in Goshen, moved to Wainwright, and now live in Tuscarawas. I do not know a lot about Port Washington. I have hopes that people will send me additional pictures, community history, family history, and miscellaneous stories that I can post on the collection of websites.

          If you find out anything more about the Confederate Solder, I would like to post it here.

          Thanks!
          Joe
