  January 22, 2011 David Cooper Added 1850 and 1870 census records on genealogy page for Jacob Ostrander.  Although we should all know by now that Ostrander, Ohio was not named for Jacob; he is the only Ostrander that settled in the area and there is so much mystery that surrounds him that I continue to research him.
  January 18, 2011 David Cooper Although I've added a few items in 2010; I've been busy and not done much.  I did speak at the Ostrander Branch of the Delaware County Library this evening at their local history night.  The topic was early settlers.  I also took this opportunity to express to those who attended that this site is a place where everyone can share their collections and histories.
