1. [OHLORAIN] Stop 7 discussion [1]
Hi: I posted something earlier about Stop 7. I just got off the phone with my "bit older" brother and said he thought that Penfield Junction (by Clearview School) was Stop 7. He was sure that where we lived on Lake Avenue was actually Stop 11, but wouldn't swear to it. He did remember however, that there were two trolley lines to Lorain. One went from Koplin's Drug Store on what was then, Lodi Street in Elyria all the way to S. Lorain. The other followed Lake Ave. to Lorain with some twists and turns

Just a thought...............I remember when several company "picnics" were held at Chippewa Lake Park. Might this have been the park you are thinking of?

3. Re: [OHLORAIN] Green line/stop 7 [1]
Hey Pat, I remember a bus line from Elyria to Cleveland, as my dad was born in Elyria, but moved to Cleveland, and as a kid, I would travel with him. The only thing that I can remember was that the bus was colored ivory and navy blue, I think. Can anyone confirm this memory for me?

I sent you an article from ancestry.com where a Sandusky mother & son died in fire. If I try to scan the Ohio papers for "die in fire", there are too many "hits" to examine. If you can narrow it by years, or at least geographical location, I can look further in Ancestry.com.

6. [OHLORAIN] Steel Plant [1]
I would like to know what year the Lorain Steel Plant was completed. My family were excavation contractors and live on the steel plant grounds for two years in an old farm house,helping to build the plant. I am trying to trace there movements in Ohio. I know they worked in Lodi making rail road marshaling yards and they live in Cleveland about 1911. My father graduated from eighth grade at Mills school there. He was born in 1879 and would have been approx. 14 years old then which would put him in Cleveland
7. Re: [OHLORAIN] Steel Plant [1]
"April 1, 1895 was a gala day for the town of Lorain. A crowd of 200 Lorainites gathered at the steel plant that evening. The huge Bessemer Converter of the Johnston Steel Company pointed its mouth toward the sky. Some of the people eyed the giant steel monster doubtfully and wondered if they would see anything at all. Valves were turned and air was forced into the converter casing a tremendous blast of flame to tower one hundred feet into the air over the crowd. The night sky was lit as it had never

That is a good question. I remember my grandmother lived near West Erie Avenue and her address was Stop 104 1/2 or something similar to that. Could be a postal stop?

Marilyn, Are you aware of the Lorain County Grave Site listings on the Lorain County Genealogical Society's site: http://home.centurytel.net/lorgen/ The people buried in North Murray are listed. Visit the site, and if you don't find anything, let me know, I'll try some random searches for Elyria papers, but not all years are available.

Thank you so much, Donna. I am starting from scratch with this and am doing it far from Amherst -- from my present home near Atlanta. I did not attend grade school in Amherst, but now that you mention it, I do have a vague memory that all grades were together at one time, but not while I was in high school. I so appreciate your pointing that out! There is plenty of time before our reunion (summer of 2009), but I want to research thoroughly ahead of time. I did write to the library, but haven't heard from th
16. [OHLORAIN] Street Car Tracks [1]
Talking about Street cars reminded me. When the Green Line stopped running The city covered up the old tracks that ran down the middle of the street with blacktop. When WW2 started and there was a shortage of steel. They took the tracks out of the street and gave them though the government. I think the Yellow Line would legally use stops because it ran mostly in the county. I don't know when the Yellow line stopped running. A funny thing happened on the yellow line .Someone stole the Street Car and ran it a
17. Re: [OHLORAIN] Location of old Stop 7? [1]
My husband lived around Lorain & his grandmother used to talk about the various "stops" & who lived near them. He says they were bus stops as Lorain used to have quite a bus system up until around the late 50's. His mother never drove so she would pack her 2 boys up & take the bus to downtown Lorain for shopping during the early to mid-50's. Don't have tons more info but he said it was really a good bus system. Hope this helps. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Shirley Hunt"

Interesting comment Carolyn. My father was also from Elyria, and I was thinking that Elyria's "main street" near the courthouse looks, even today, the same as one of those shots of Lorain! Definitely the "our town" of the era!

For Patricia Daly. I dug out that picture again, of my Mom getting on the bus. The picture is in black and white, of course, but I can tell you that the bottom half of the bus is dark colored and the top half if light colored. Can anyone else verify if the color was navy blue and ivory? Oh, how I wish I could ask my Mom and Dad! As a reminder, the bus was labeled E. Broad-Clark. The driver was family friend, Art Hopkins. Was there more than one bus line in Elyria and is the bus in my picture s
