Book Description:

Early days in Seneca County, OH, including the communities of Tiffin, Fostoria, Green Springs, Attica, New Riegel, Republic, Ft. Seneca, Bloomville, Bettsville and Adrian, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 28 Page Booklet reprinted 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 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 an 1846 sketch of Tiffin, an 1886 photo of Tiffin, and an early photo of Fostoria. Among the many and diverse topics covered in the booklet are: Fort Seneca; How a Beaver saved General Harrison; Seneca John Accused of Witchcraft; Religious Rites of an Indian Tribe; the Settlement of Tiffin; Col. James Smith's Experiences Among Indians; and Early Days in Fostoria. GENEALOGY BUFFS will find a list of 1888 county officers and businesses, and biographies of Gen. William H. Gibson, orator; Charles Foster, govenor; Anson Burlingame; Pere Hyacinthe; Consul Wilshire Butterfield, historian; and Alfred H. Welch, teacher and author. 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 Seneca County, brief sketches on Gov. Edwin Tiffin and Heidelberg College and maps showing the 88 Ohio counties and 1805 Ohio are also included.
