This farm was off a dirt road Rt 1 Pleasant City ohio near a covered bridge The farm was taken to make a freeway. He was a dairy farmer and was known to have cream on the top of milk. His name is Earnest Laughlin. His wife was a school teacher named Madge. They had three children Shirley, Margie, and Fain. Fain was a crew member of the U.S.S. Indianappolis. He was lost at sea in 1944.

I am still looking for the farm this is not the farm. Laughlin farm was known for the best coldest well water.

This is my in laws farm. They bought it in 1980-1981. It is located on Read Road, Cambridge. It is not far from Barrett Hill Road.

this farm was destroyed to make a new freeway theres a reststop near the hill that was cut off with apple trees it was my great grandpa's Ernest Laughlin, Married first to Madge Heskett and after her death Married Gertrude.As they aged they would live in town in the winters. Besides making a living off his farm with fresh milk they delivered to town he made candy in town somewhere.

Again, I'm 100% certain this is my in-laws place on Read Rd, Cambridge Ohio. In between Rock Hill Rd and Barrett Hill Rd. My mother in law still resides there. They replaced the garage, removed a portion of the garage, and had the big maples cut down in the yard. Pine tree is still there.

I found out the farm was on rte 3 Pleasant City, Ohio Or on a farm on Buffalo Road
Some of this information was from Pleasant City Valley Township census Guernsey County

This farm is located at Read Road Cambridge Ohio. I grew up on this farm, still family owned. It is not in Pleasant City, it was not destroyed and is still standing. The buildings have moved around a lot. The garage has been torn down and a new one has been built. The barn still stands, worn down but still stands. The chicken coop to the left is no longer there but the small buildings behind the garage, has been relocated to where the chicken coop once stood. A house is now built to the left of the home and the driveway to the right is still owned by the same family.
