Several years ago my husband and I went on a three-week trek across the country. Each stop was carefully planed either for genealogical, historical or scenic significance.
We began with Phil in Punxsutawney, and ended in Boot Hill Cemetery, Dodge City. Along the route was a stop in Ohio to enjoy the state fair and visit several presidential gravesites.
There are five presidential burial sites in the Buckeye State. William Henry Harrison, James A. Garfield, Rutherford B. Hayes, William McKinley and Warren G. Harding.
During our two-day stay we were able to pay our respects to four of the five presidents.
