  • Jonathan Grimm:

    I am looking to add additional information to the Roush Researched books. My 3rd Great Grandfather on my father’s side William Grimm married 24 Mar 1910 in Mason County, West Virginia to Serepta Ann Roush daughter of Benjamin Roush and Sophia Altman which is listed in one of your Roush volumes not sure which one. My 2nd Great Grandfather William Pearley Grimm also married 21 Jul 1894 in Mason County, West Virginia to Mertie C. Roush daughter of Henry Roush andSarah Riffle. It says that William P. Grimm left and headed west. I would like to be added to the news letter and see what else I can do to update my information.

    My grandmother was Ethel Roush Leyrer…

    Her daughter, my mother, is Ethel Babette Leyrer Cranston, who attended many of your reunions…

    I would like to become a member of this association…

    Coincidentally, my best friend and family are from Chesire and Rio Grande, Ohio…her aunts taught at the college…I am wondering if any of my relatives know of her and her family there…Lillian Thomas, Cynthia Thomas Langona, Richard Thomas, Bree Thomas Ramey and Elizabeth Langona, who passed away 2 summers ago……

    At one time, my husband even considered a job in the admissions department, at Rio Grande College…

    Can’t believe the family reunion was held in Rio Grande, 2012…

    My husband and I, along with our family, lived in Massanutten, Va for 12 years…coincidentally, the family reunion was held in Shenandoah, Va at the same time as our daughter’s bridal shower in New York, that year…

    It’s amazing to me that our daughter attended JMU, in Harrisonburg, Va, which is near the family cemetery in Mt. Jackson/New Market…thus, our move from upstate NY to Massanutten…

    Please add me to your email lists…

      My grandmother was J. Glenda Roush Hoy, your grandmother’s sister. My Uncle “Pete” attended several reunions. Perhaps your mom remembers him.
      I met my “Great Aunt Ethel” when I was a young girl. She was very pretty.
      We live in Maryland.
      It was nice to make a connection here.

  • Mary Lee Marchi:

    Just wanted to let everyone know — The Roush Reunion Banquet was held last night at The University of Rio Grande with many cousins from all over the United States attending. It was a great success, food was delicious, companionship was wonderful. Bob Hood of the Gallia County Visitors Center was the speaker, he did a wonderful job explaining the history and sites of Gallia County. There was a workshop before the banquet with the historians explaining the process of filling out the forms for the new Roush Book 5. Today will be the auction and picnic.A good time was had by all.Have a safe trip home.
