I am no longer at the Columbus airport.
At the Columbus airport again.
So it goes.
I googled Israel Wells and got this. I clicked on W001 Descendant Chart and got this. Scrolling up to the top takes you to Thomas Welles, who is apparently my 9G-grandfather.

We visited the Newark Earthworks, or at least part of it. It’s very spread out. This photo shows the mound at the center of the Great Circle Earthworks, which contains a ceremonial longhouse.
Newark is pretty beat up and has several redevelopment areas that don’t seem to be redeveloping very well. I didn’t see anything that looked like a clothing or souvenir store and thus did not succeed in finding a Nerk shirt.
But I took a picture of the Longaberger basket building, and that’s nearly as good.
After the last of the reunion get-togethers, we drove out to Granville and wandered around downtown for a while. Granville was founded by various of my ancestors, and there’s a monument to that effect next to the Presbyterian church.
A person could get fat very quickly eating Ohio meals.
