Thanks for the update - the article about Jacob Rush is just one of many by Kelleys Island soldiers. Many people worked on the islands from the Sandusky, Port Clinton, and NW Ohio area. A new book about the Kelleys Island is finally out with loads of genealogy tidbits and stories about the early days of Kelleys Island. An extensive index is posted at
