Sandusky County

Book Description:

Early days in Sandusky County, OH, including the communities of Fremont, Clyde, Woodville, Gibsonburg, Lindsey, Townsend and Ballsville are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 42 Page Booklet, reprinted from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio, The Ohio Guide (a WPA Writer's Project), and other hard-to-find sources. The spiral-bound booklet is 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 book. These include the 1846 sketch of Lower Sandusky (now Fremont), Mrs. Hayes (wife of future president Rutherford B. Hayes) in the Soldier's Hospital, and Birchard Library and Soldiers' Monument in Fremont. Among the many and diverse topics discussed in the booklet are: the origin of the name Sandusky, "the Neutral Nation" Indian Tribe, Battle at Fort Stephenson, Running the Gauntlet, Spiegel Grove - home of Pres. Hayes, a visit with former Pres. and Mrs. Hayes, Thanksgiving at the White House, How a poor lunch girl earned Mrs. Hayes friendship; Charities at the White House, Sardis Birchard and Gen. Jackson, McPherson Monument in Clyde, and Correspondence with Gen. U.S. Grant. GENEALOGY BUFFS will find a list of 1888 county officers and businesses, and biographies of President Hayes, Lucy Ware Webb Hayes, Judge Elisha Howland - humorist and poet; Gen. Ralph Pomeroy Buckland, Thomas Hawkins - advertisement poetry; and Gen. James Birdseye McPherson. 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 Sandusky County and maps showing the 88 Ohio counties and 1805 Ohio are also included.
