Hartman Log Cabin

The Hartman Log Cabin is in Williamsburg, Ohio.
The Plaque reads
Dedicated to Christopher Hartman who emigrated from Germany in 1753 fought in the American Revolution and settled in Clermont County in 1801; to his grandson John Kirby Hartman, who purchased this site in 1838; and to their relatives and descendants. Restored by the Clermont County Park Commission in 1992.
The Hartmans were early settlers of Jackson Township an built this log home in 1838.
This was here when Lee's ancestors arrived in 1846.
The historic log cabin is available for rent for family reunions, birthday parties or holiday dinners.
We saw a lot of those quilt patterns painted on barns and house when we were on Lee's ancestry trail.
When we stopped they were putting on a new wood slat roof.
Another old stone home but see the quilt pattern painted on the work addition.
You can find a map that takes you to each one of those quilt patterns.
Lee says some day we just might go and get close up shots of them.

Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine

    2. He’s my 6th great grandfather (maternal) how cool.

    3. Researching your ancestors can lead you to all sorts of interesting facts and places. We found out my person is a direct descendant of one of the 102 passengers on the Mayfower. Another came to Jamestown, Virginia before the Mayflower. Our last to arrive was the ancestors that settled just a mile from this log cabin.
