History and Genealogy Records Preserved by AzArrow

Adams County

Book Description:

Early days in Adams County, and the communities of Manchester, West Union and Winchester, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 23 Page Booklet reprinted from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio and other sources. The spiral-bound booklet is printed one-sided on 60# paper, with the print enlarged 10% for easier reading. A sheet of clear vinyl has been added to protect the front cover. Among the topics in the booklet are: the Serpent Mound, the first settlement, the bark cutters, steamboat racing, the experience of an old time river man - Capt. John F. Devenny, river beacons, the capture of Israel Donalson, a nostalgic trip down the Ohio River, and adventures involving area Indians. Genealogy buffs will find a list of 1888 county officers and businesses. In addition there's a history of newspapers in the county, a map of Ohio's 88 counties, a map showing Ohio in 1805, and a 1940 look at the area from "The Ohio Guide," a WPA project. The booklet has no index, so I can't check for individual names, but I am happy to answer other questions.
