July Artifact of the Month

As our country marks the 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812, our July artifact of the month is a Galusha genealogical chart, that was produced by George Herrick in 1918.  Ezra Galusha was an early settler in Warrenville and is the only War of 1812 veteran known to be buried in the Warrenville Cemetery.  Ezra brought his family to Warrenville in 1834, following his son Jacob, who had traveled to Warrenville and claimed land on what is today Galusha Road in 1833.  The Historical Museum will feature the Galusha family in an exhibit starting in September.
