After multiple researchers independently confirmed that the Heisman marker had been placed in the wrong location, it still took a concerted effort to raise funds to produce a new sign that corrected Heisman's birthdate as Oct. 23, 1869, rather than Oct. 3 of that year, as well as to erect the marker in the correct location. Longtime Ohio City resident Fay Harris spearheaded this effort, securing funds to make this happen in April 2021.
