About Me
I grew up at 206 Ilene Avenue in South Lebanon (1960-1975) and, as a teenager (1975-1980), 1535 King Avenue in Kings Mills. I am retired from the United States Army and continue to maintain a license and provide services in Preventive Dentistry. Both children are grown and attending college here in North Carolina. My hobbies include woodworking and (evidently collecting) older woodworking equipment from the 1930's and 1940's. I enjoy visiting home every summer (and sometimes in the fall) to visit with family, my childhood friends and their families, and make new memories in Ohio.

 I am a struggling IT Technician working contracts, hoping to land that one last job working for a company I can actually stay with and retire from. I might have just got my wish! :D

About Me

Born and Raised in South Lebanon. My Family came here from Breathitt County Ky. My Grandfather built the 4 houses that are on pike street by the creek. We lived there till my Father passed and then moved to Forest Ave then to Main street. I Bought Manfred and Essie Brewers House on Mary Ellen. They tell me it is Haunted. Prior Tenants said they saw a Spirit here. I hear a lot of Foot steps but, no Ghosts Yet. :) This house was built in 1857. If the walls could talk....

I enjoy my Church Life, my Family and seeing Children happy.

About Me

my parents moved to So. Lebanon in 1954. They first livet in a duplex on Claud Ave. Then, after 2 years, we moved to Pauline Drive (just down the street).  We lived there for another 2 years & then we moved up on "Pumpkin Brown Hill" in the old farm houst that was torn down a few years ago. It was owned by R.K. Johnson. We lived there about 5 years & made another short move to Sunny Lane where I lived until I got married.  After my husband served his time in the US Air Force, We bought our first home back on Pauline Drive. That little house at 535 was our home for 20 years.  We have 3 daughters that were born while we lived there.  We moved to Lebanon in 1994.  We still have a strong connection to So. Lebanon.

About Me

I've just recently moved back to South Lebanon in January, to stay with my grandma, after my grandfather's passing -

I love working with Maryan with the historical society, since I'm only 17 we've got an age gap, so together we bring a fun mix of ideas to the table. I'm in this for my faith in my community, especially in recognizing the success in the village. 

I come from a family that grew up in South Lebanon, my grandfather, Eddie Herald was a teacher at Kings, then later became an artist. My grandmother, Ann Herald, worked as a beautician in town and now works at the village's water department. My grandparents are my world and I've never lived in another place that brought memories like the one's I've made. There is joy in living in a small town.

About Me

Resident of Kings Mills 1944 to 1962. My father was the town barber and my mother was the school cook. Brother, Boyd S Ellis and sister Wanda Ausman. As a teenager I was a musician, a scholar and an Eagle Scout where I wrote an essay on the history of Kings. I use to sing at funerals at the Witt funeral home for spare money. I spent my summers working the hayfields and later worked the Warren County roads for the Engineer's department with Nick Nelson. We serviced all of the old bridges. My nickname was "Hod" after Hod Eller.  I use to hang out with  the later congressman, Ronnie Magg. He was always a jovial fellow. I found the girls in South Lebanon who attended Kings to be the prettiest by far but I never got very far.

I attended Miami U and my first job was at LeCI as a psychologist in 1966. Judge David Batsche helped me to get the job. David was also my Best Man at my wedding that year.

I finished my doctorate in California in 1988  and returned to the Dayton area to practice psychology. I contracted to do seminars for Ford Motor and traveled the US and Canada for five years. My dissertation concerned my work with Ford in Interpersonal Skills Training. My last twenty working years were with ODRC as regional Clinical Director of Mental Health. I developed the Sex Offender Risk Assessment Center in London.

I am retired in Tipp with my wife Regina and my two beagles at our property known as Buzzard Bois. We also have a home on a lake in Minnesota. We like to travel and make a yearly trek to Quintana Roo Mexico. My son Pete lives in Chicago with wife and two boys. My daughter Maggie owns a hostel in Antigua Guatemala where she currently resides. 

My current interests are History, Forensics, Tai Chi, and my Triumph Motorcycle. Regina and I are Master Gardeners and Kentucky Colonels. I enjoy biking on the backroads of Warren County. I have great memories of Place and South Lebanon was one of them. As a kid, I use to hitch rides on the Pennsylvania Railway from Kings to South Lebanon. It was scary but well worth the trip.
