Shirley Jean & Arlene (and other interested "listers"):
That town in Morrow County is "Johnsville" (P.O. Shauck), not Johnstown. My
wife, Karen, has several ancestors buried in the Shauck Cemetery at
Johnsville, and our nephews attend school there. Interestingly, the town was
named for early settler JOHN ELY -- and our city, Elyria (Lorain Co.), was
named for founder HEMAN ELY (no proven connection as yet).

I am sorry, but there is a Johnstown in Morrow County in Ohio (not Richland as
wrote earlier). It is south and slightly west of the village of Lexington.
