Arcanum News: Becoming a grandparent – welcome Hamilton Keith Greve


He’s here! He’s beautiful! He is a gift!

Our first grandson was born this past week and we are just elated – we prayed for this grandbaby for a long time and we are very pleased to share his birth announcement! Hamilton Keith Greve was born on Aug. 3, 2016, at 7:34 p.m., weighing 7 pounds 9 ounces and measuring 21 ½ inches long to our daughter, Traci and her husband, Gabe Greve. Proud grandparents are Greg and Terri Greve and my husband, Kevin, and me, all of Arcanum. Great-grandparents are Bill Potter of Kettering, Martha Greve of Greensburg, Indiana, and Lois Troutwine of Arcanum. Traci and Gabe are 2005 AHS graduates and currently live in Fairborn, Ohio. Thank you Lord for answered prayer and the most beautiful child. “Before I formed you in your mother’s womb, I knew you…” Jeremiah 1:5

Don’t forget the August Coffee and Conversation at the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society this Saturday at 10 a.m. at 123 W. George St. Sharing experiences will be Hubert Cromwell, Jim Hamilton, the Weimers, the Hoovers and Bill Young about growing up in Ithaca. Carolyn Miller Laird will also be sharing her memories of when her father was the postmaster and also had the grocery store for many years. Come and join them to hear their stories and be prepared to share your stories, too. This is a great way to spend a Saturday morning, reminiscing and learning more about Darke County.

The Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society designated the Delisle school house located on the corner of Delisle-Fourman and Myers-Tillman Road in Van Buren Township as a designated historic site in southern Darke County per Keith Furlong, historic chair from AWTHS. Per Arcanum Times dated Jan. 31, 1952: When the Delisle one-room brick school building in Van Buren Township goes under the auctioneer’s hammer next Saturday (Feb. 2) at 1:30 p.m. another Darke County educational landmark will pass on and become history. The building was built in 1885 and in continuous use for school purposes until last spring. A majority of the patrons indicated a desire to have their students attend Arcanum. In Van Buren township records on July 2, 1908, the #5 school’s teacher was No. 5, Geraldine Roll; and a former student included Carolyn Patterson Furlong, an AWTHS member. The current owners are the Richard Oberers. Please note this is a private residence.

Displays on the old one-room school houses are on display at the historical society this summer located at 123 W. George St. in Arcanum. Open hours are the next two Saturdays in August from 9a.m.-noon which correlates with Arcanum’s Farmers Market as well as the last session of the Coffee and Conversation session. Other times for tours and research are by appointment. Check our web site for hours and details,
