Here's the article from the July issue of the GHS newsletter "Blockhouse Bulletin"written by Jim Darnell.
Importance of Wayne County Farmer and Freethinker James Madison Cosad Featured at Quarterly Meeting & Picnic
   The GHS Summer Quarterly Meeting & Picnic will be held on Monday evening, July 23, beginning at 6 p.m. under the picnic pavilion at Lauraville Landing.  In the event of inclement weather, the meeting will be held at the Clyde Methodist Church.
   Our evening’s program, titled Huron Suffragent — James Madison Cosad, will outline the life and impact of one of the leading Freethinkers in America.  Cosad, who grew up in Junius and later moved to Huron was an avid promoter of abolition, spiritualism and women’s suffrage.  Presenter Rosa Fox, Huron Town Historian, will highlight local connections to the early suffrage movement. The program will follow our picnic and a brief GHS business meeting.
   The event is open to the public. Those attending should bring a dish-to-pass and their own table setting.  Water and lemonade will be provided.
