Bob Evans started in Rio Grande, Ohio.

I do not consider Southern Ohio part of the South

Maybe the northern partt of Slutheastern Ohio is different from Kentucky...but much of SE Ohio actually borders Kentucky. Also, many Kentuckians moved to places like Portsmouth and Ironton in years past to get jobs in the factories. Ashland, the largest city in eastern Kentucky is right on the river.

I would consider southern and Appalachian Ohio to be a part of the south. It is below the Mason-Dixon line and farther south than parts of WV, which is southern. Culturally, it is much more similar to Kentucky and WV than it is to northern Ohio. Even southern Ohioans have Kentucky accents. I saw these two people on Shark Tank from Portsmouth Ohio, and sounded exactly like Kentuckians.

For somebody from the South it would be Yankee land but for somebody from the East Coast or Upper Midwest it would feel like the South. Cincinnati has a lot of Southern values, it is very socially conservative and a pretty religious town.

That all seems true when you're from New Jersey, but further out here into real non-coastal America things aren't so cut and dry. Southern Ohio is country, but not southern. The part of WV it borders is also not very southern.

Portsmouth, Ohio's website calls itself "The Gateway to the South" Portsmouth, Ohio and Hazard, KY are indistinguishable from each other. Southern Ohio leans heavily toward the UPPER SOUTH, but only along the Ohio River..go inland 10 miles and it becomes way less Southern in feel.
