Welcome



As you may have noticed, many photos have disappeared from this website.  The problem was with the host provider.  We invite you to visit us on facebook at the Newport Ohio History page where we have uploaded many of the photos from this website.

This website is dedicated to the people of Newport, Ohio, in appreciation for our ancestors and as a gift to our children.



 

The Greene Family at the Greenwood Farm in 2008:

The marker shown below was purchased with the proceeds from the sale of Shall We Gather at the River? It is a reminder that the family met in Newport in 1908 and again in 2008.  Perhaps it will inspire our grandchildren and great grandchildren to gather at the river in 2108.

 

 


Hear "Beautiful Ohio," our state song, courtesy of Patricia Walter on the River Boat page. Hear "Ole Man River" on the Flood Pictures page. Hear more and enjoy more pictures of Marietta at The Six Dog Studio .


If you are having trouble with the music, try refreshing the page.






 

The story of the Greene family is now available through Amazon Kindle!!

Thanks!



May, 2011

We are sorry to report that Eileen Berga Thomas has passed away.  Our deepest sympathy to her family and many friends.  We are grateful to Eileen for her years of research and her willingness to share her love of Washington County history. If we had a question, Eileen had an answer. Much of what is on this website originated with Eileen.  Click on the link to the obituary page:   http://newportohiohistory.com/gpage21.html 

 

We are pleased to announce that Karen Riggs has graciously agreed to preserve Eileen's records and assist in answering questions regarding Newport history. Thanks, Karen!
