This is a custody matter between the father and mother of these children. YOU have no independent right to visitation with these children. The real issue lies with your brother. He needs to contact a family law attorney to determine what his rights are in this matter.
There are some provisions in Ohio law the involve the rights of relatives to seek companionship time but its not usually granted as parents have a constitutional right to decide who their kids should associate with. If you want to seek your brother's kids, ask him.
