Cleveland (Cuyahoga County)

Book Description:

Early days in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, and its various communities -- Cleveland, Lakeview, Riverside, Berea, Chagrin Falls, Collinwood, Newburgh, Brooklin, etc. -- are recalled in colorful narratives and factual data in this NEW 83 page booklet reprinted from the 1892 edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio, the WPA book: The Ohio Guide, and other hard-to-find sources. The spiral-bound booklet is printed on 60# paper, with the print enlarged 15% for easier reading. Among the many and diverse topics in the booklet are: the first permanent settlement at Cleveland, the first militia muster, Garfield's Monument, boating accidents, the hanging of O'Mic, a wild "return of peace" celebration, the Berea Sandstone industry, various city parks and monuments, a visit with Col. Charles Whittlesey, and a look at plucky pioneer women. GENEALOGY BUFFS will find a list of 1888 County Officials and businesses, along with biographical data on a number of prominent citizens: Dr. Jared Potter Kirtland, Gen. Moses Cleaveland, Gov. Ruben Wood, Sherlock James Andrews, Rufus P. Ranney, Henry Chisholm, Charles F. Brush, John Henry Devereux, Leonard Case, Edwin Cowles, Henry B. Payne, Joseph Perkins, Rebecca Elliott Cromwell Rouse, Gov. John Brough, Amasa Stone, and Jephtha H. Wade. An extensive history of pre-1933 journalism in Cuyahoga County, a map showing the 88 Ohio counties, another depicting Ohio in 1805, and articles on Dunham Tavern and several colleges are also included. The excerpt on Cleveland from the WPA Writer's Project of 1940 brings the book into the 20th Century with historical insights and points of interest.
