Mappy Monday- North Star, Ohio

My 2nd great-grandfather was Marion Richard "Mac" Mendenhall (1873-1948). He was born in North Star, Ohio.

North Star, Darke, Ohio

North Star is a very small town in Darke County, Ohio. It's population in 2010 was only 236! It was "platted" in 1852 and it's name is derived from it's location, which is on the edge of the Great Black Swamp. 

One historic site is the St. Louis Catholic Church:

Two notable people from North Star:

Annie Oakley or Phoebe Ann Mosey- Sharpshooter and exhibition shooter

Craig Stammen- Major League Baseball Player
