This week on the Ohio's Yesteryears blog, a retired naval commander visited the Hayes museum to donate his great grandfather's escutcheon and other family heirlooms to honor the long-time friendship between his ancestor General Manning Force and President Rutherford B. Hayes.
According to the blog: "This past week, during a visit to the Hayes Presidential Center, retired Naval Commander Ken Juul and his wife Vicki donated the Civil War escutcheon of Juul's great grandfather General Manning Force to the institution. Because of the lifelong friendship that existed between General Force and President Rutherford B. Hayes, Juul felt that the Hayes Presidential Center was an appropriate repository for the escutcheon and other family materials. President Hayes and Lucy named their eighth child and the only one born at Spiegel Grove for General Manning Force."
