Early days in Harrison County, OH, and its various communities, including Cadiz, New Rumley, Freeport, Scio, Bowerston, Jewett, New Athens, Deersville, Hopedale and Harrisville, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 22 Page Booklet of excerpts reproduced directly from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio, The Ohio Guide (1940) and other hard-to-find sources. The spiral-bound booklet is printed one-sided on 60# paper with the fine print enlarged for easier reading. A sheet of clear vinyl has been added to protect the front cover.

They include the county buildings in Cadiz, drawn in 1846, the birthplace of General Custer, and a delightful sketch of a pioneer passenger train.

Stanton's early days, observations of a farmer and Gen. George Custer's birthplace and childhood.
