      • By the way, I have a friend, John P. Jones, who recently moved back to Huron, Ohio, where the plaque can be found. He grew up here, and knew Marcella Buck well. Just lived down the street from her and her husband Ed. They owned the Ed-Mar Diner, which was located on Main Street near where the location of the plaque.
