setting initial extent on arcgis.com world map

Hello all.

I'm trying to set up a custom web map on my site. The coordinates I have come from our existing GIS that is projected in NAD 83, Ohio South Zone.
I've been able to get the sample world map to work, but when I try to put my own coordinates into the extent, I end up in Africa.

I'm not sure if I'm specifying the extent correctly, or if there's something bigger I'm missing completely.
The relevant code is:
            var initExtent = new esri.geometry.Extent({ "xmin": 1800192, "ymin": 706814, "xmax": 1810000, "ymax": 770000, "spatialReference": { "wkid": 3735} });             map = new esri.Map("map", { extent: initExtent});


Thanks in advance for any help.
