Jefferson County

Book Description:

Early days in Jefferson County, including the communities of Steubenville, Toronto, Richmond, Elliottsville, Mt. Pleasant, Irondale, Smithfield, Brilliant, New Alexandria and Bloomfield, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 37 Page Booklet reproduced directly from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio, The Ohio Guide (a WPA Writers Project) and other hard-to-find sources. The spiral-bound booklet is printed single-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. In addition to the booklet, the successful bidder will receive THREE omputer-Enhanced 8 1/2 x 11 Prints made from engravings in the original book, printed on parchtex paper. These include views of Market Street in Steubenville in 1846, an 1886 photograph of Steubenville from the West Virginia shore, and a picture of Ben Tappan. Among the many and diverse topics covered in the booklet: the old Mingo town; Logan, the celebrated Mingo chief; the Yellow Creek massacre; Buskirk's Battle; early settlers and schools; perils of the coal miner; starting a woollen manufactory; Bezaleel Wells and the Copperas Works; cotton cloth factories and paper mills; and trades that have become extinct. Genealogy buffs will find a list of 1888 county officers and businesses as well as biographical information on some of the county's early citizens: Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, Sen. Ben Tappan, Thomas Cole, James Collier, Judge John C. Wright, Col. John Miller, Thomas L. and Hugh J. Jewett, James McDonald, Stephen Merrill, and William Pittenger. The Howe history covers the development of this area until about 1890, while excerpts from the WPA book, give a nostalgic glympse from a 1940 vantage point, including interesting historical notes, especially as they relate to sightseeing possibilities. An extensive look at the pre-1933 history of newspapers in the county, a map showing all 88 Ohio counties and a map of Ohio as it appeared in 1805 are also included.
