After 73 years, lost ring returned to family

(WKBN) — A ring lost for 73 years was miraculously found in Columbiana County – and the finder just knew it would be special for the owner to have it back.
 
He persevered to return it when others might have given up.
 
“Takes you back to childhood, doesn’t it?” said Margery Cooksey.
 
She glowed about the 1948 Wilson High school ring that belonged to her husband of 65 years. They started dating right around graduation.
 
“I really never saw the ring before, because when we were married he didn’t have it. He had already lost it,” Cooksey said.
 
Michael Shealy found the ring in Rogers during a family trip. It was uncovered by his metal detector. The ring was broken but it galvanized his desire to find the owner.
 
“Finding the backstory to me was really more important,” Shealy said.
 
Shealy was adopted and had found his birth mother after many years. He had a feeling this ring would be important.
 
He took the ring home to South Carolina and started investigating.
 
He had the school and the year. The initials AHC inside the ring sealed the deal: Art Cooksey. He died in 2016, so Shealy called the family.
 
“I was sure it was a scam. I had never heard of anything like this. I didn’t know he had a high school ring,” Cooksey said.

That’s a feel good story. It’s nice to hear people can be so thoughtful and persistent.

Well, it's a school class ring and thus of no sentimental value except to the owner and relatives.

Most people probably would have pawned it off, but he just felt he must return it.

Or thrown it away since it was broken.

Good of the guy to do the research & return it.  It's a shame that the owner didn't know about it but the finder did the right thing in my opinion.

It was a very nice thing to do.

There are loads of good people here.  You just don't hear about them.  I wish we did!
