miles east of Berholz, Ohio and only a few miles from Carroll County, sits an historical monument

Commissioned and erected by Robert and Martha George in 1871 in memory of their son,
Thomas, who lost his life during the Civil War, this memorial hosts a plaque paying homage to
Thomas and other Ross Township citizens who lost their lives in America's quest to end slavery.
