Book Description:

The early days of Erie County, OH, and its various communities -- Sandusky, Milan, Castalia, Huron, Kelley's Island, Johnson's Island, etc. -- are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 39 Page Booklet reproduced directly from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Recollections of Ohio and other hard-to-find books, including The Ohio Guide, a 1940 WPA project. The spiral-bound booklet is printed one-sided on 60# paper, with the print enlarged for easier reading. IN ADDITION TO THE BOOKLET the buyer will receive THREE Computer-Enhanced 8 1/2 x 11 Prints of engravings from the original book, suitable for framing. Besides the 1846 sketch of the Harbor of Sandusky, shown below, prints include the Civil War Prison on Johnson's Island, and Milan in 1846. Among the many and diverse topics in the booklet are: Meaning of the name "Erie," early settlers in the Fire Lands; the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Home, the Ohio State Fish Hatchery, Ogontz -- an Ottawa Chief who was also a Catholic priest; the Civil War prison on Johnson's Island; a conspiracy to release the prisoners; the beach at Cedar Point; the Moravian settlement; New Salem (Milan); Indian hostilities; Thomas Edison's early days; the colorful exploits of John Beatty; early background of Jay Cooke; development of the Catawba winery; and Inscription Rock on Kelley's Island. GENEALOGY BUFFS will find a list of 1888 county officers and businesses, and information on several noted citizens: Eleutheros Cooke, Ebenezer Lane, Jared Ward, Ebenezer Merry, David Abbott, Almon Ruggles, Rev. Phineas Barker Barber and Datus Kelley.
