Answer:

In Ohio, the current age of majority is 18 years. But, before the amendment in January 1, 1974, the age of majority was 21 years in Ohio.

In Ledwell v May Co., 54 Ohio Misc 43, 377 NE2d 798, 800 [Ohio Com Pl 1977], “By statutory amendment effective January 1, 1974, the age of majority in Ohio was reduced from 21 years to 18 years. 135 Ohio Laws 7.” Id. at 45.
The relevant law is stated below for more details on this subject:
 
R.C. 3109.01 - Age of majority
All persons of the age of eighteen years or more, who are under no legal disability, are capable of contracting and are of full age for all purposes.
