Ps. semilanceata (the true "Liberty Caps") do NOT grow in forest habitats, but rather cow pastures, and I do not believe they have been documented in Ohio.

If you have found something which "looks like" a Liberty Cap in that habitat and locale, AND it stains blue, then it may be something in the Psilocybe pelliculosa/ silvatica species complex--or perhaps a bluing Pluteus species--and may be weakly psychoactive. If it has that general shape & doesn't stain blue, it could be any number of things (Mycena, Collybia, Galerina, Conocybe, Psathryella, Inocybe, Naematoloma, etc.), none of which are worth eating and some of which might be poisonous.
