Knox County

Book Description:

The early history of Knox County and its various communities -- Mt. Vernon, Fredericktown, Gambier, Centerburg, Martinsburg and Danville -- is recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 23 Page Booklet of excerpts reproduced directly from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio 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. IN ADDITION TO THE BOOKLET the buyer will receive THREE Computer-Enhanced 8 1/2 x 11 Prints of engravings from the original Howe book, suitable for framing. These include a 1887 view of Mt. Vernon's Public Square, an 1846 drawing of Mt. Vernon, and an 1846 view of Kenyon College. Among the many and diverse topics covered are: Early settlers and other "firsts"; disappearing water wells; mink tobacco pouches, doing business with the Indians; Kenyon College and other educational institutions; famous Kenyon alumni, including President Hayes; and student life and discipline. GENEALOGY BUFFS will find a list of 1888 county officers and businesses, and biographies of Philander Chase, Charles Pettit McIlvaine, Columbus Delano, Gen. George Washington Morgan, Sen. William Windom and Fred Hunt Hurd. The Howe history covers the development of this area until about 1890, while excerpts from the WPA book, give a nostalgic glimpse from a 1940 vantage point, including interesting historical notes, especially as they relate to sightseeing possibilities. A 1933 look at the history of newspapers in the county, brief articles on the Old Kenyon Fraternity Lodge and Daniel Decatur Emmett, composer of "Dixie", some newspaper feature stories about WWII Gen. Curtis LeMay, and a grass-roots presidential campaign, and other area subjects from the late 1960s. A map showing the 88 Ohio counties and a map of 1805 Ohio are also included.
