been mulling my post over...I didn't mean to slight Sally Hemings...so i want to submit that I am living in the same county as the descendents of one of Sally Hemings children. She must have been one heck of a woman...

Henry Ford would be the obvious one for me. In fact, he had the neighborhood (and the house) I'm living in built back in 1919-1920. (Mine was 1919)

Famous natives from our little town:

Doug Collins was on the U.S. 1972 Olympic basketball team that played in Munich, went on to be an NBA player, and when he retired from playing, was coach for the Chicago Bulls when Michael Jordan was playing for them.

John Malkovich, actor, has been in many movies, including Man in the Iron Mask, Con Air, Places in the Heart, Dangerous Liaisons, and many more.
We get by with a little help from our friends
