Lehman Family homestead. On North Poplar Ridge six miles north of Defiance, Ohio.
The Lehman Homestead on the Ridge, Defiance County, OH. Irene Kintner Knarr: The ground was rich on the ridge. Pumpkins and squash grew and grew!
Lehman brick home north of Defiance. Irene: Where my mother, Adam and Bertha were raised. At that time a big wide cement porch located like porch now but extending all the way around the north and east sides to back doors--a wonderful ride in a wagon with one leg in wagon and pushing with other foot--or for an exhilarating ride guiding while a brother pushed or vice versa, pushing brothers. You can see the house plainly from the North Poplar Ridge Church. A big gravel pit used to be between the two but now is all leveled off for farming. The big bank barn and row of other buildings between house and barn are all gone now--replaced by 4 or 5 huge metal storage bins.

Lehman farm buildings. Note the banked barn. All these buildings were gone when we visited in the 1990s. Irene recalls the story when the Lehman auto was driven up the bank in front of the barn, continued right through the barn, and exited through the back, dropping onto a manure pile. The driver and auto were not hurt, but the smelly incident was a favorite story told over the years at family gatherings!

Lehman Log House, Adams Twp., Defiance Co., OH

Irene Knarr: This is the Lehman homestead north of Defiance, Ohio. My great grandparents John and Elizabeth Lehman built this home when one of first settlers in Defiance County. It stood about 200 feet East of the big brick home. They built the big brick home where my grandparents lived and my mother, Eva, Aunt Bertha and Uncle Adam were raised. Aunt Bertha and Uncle Adam (Neither ever married) kept living there and farmed the land until they sold it (when I was in college) and moved to Defiance, Ohio.
Irene believes this house was her great-grand-parents Lehman home, the house that stood east of the big brick house.

When the big brick home of Lehmans was sold, Uncle Adam and Aunt Bertha moved into this home on West High Street in Defiance. This property and the land to the North was later sold to Rest Home. This house was torn down when the Rest Home was built.
Irene prepared the rooms in this Defiance house for Aunt Bertha when Adam and Bertha moved into Defiance.
