Next time you're in Cincinnati, if you get a chance stop by Spring Grove Cemetery. It's just off I75 and the cemetery is like entering the Roman Forum. It is probably one of the most beautiful cemeteries you'll ever see.. William and his family are buried in LN Garden Section 52, lot 196.
As a young man, William would have had no way of knowing how important his writings would be to readers two centuries after he wrote them. He gave us the key that unlocked the gates of Ft. Amanda so we could go inside. In doing so, he introduced us to ordinary people, heros in their own ways who never made the history books and who history forgot. If readers of the blogs this past 24 weeks have learned anything it's this. Next time you find yourself having to dispose of belongings of a deceased relative, when you get to the old, undated, unlabled,bent and crumpled photos and letters, and think, "I don't know any of these people so why would I want to keep them," treat them as treasurers. They were kept for a reason and in they're in that condition because they were very special to someone who probably looked at and read them many many times during their lives. "So, Dave, just how long am I supposed to keep them?" Forever.
