Franklin County, Ohio: A Collection Of Reminiscences Of The Early Settlement

Franklin County, Ohio: A Collection Of Reminiscences Of The Early Settlement – William T. Martin

It is the design of this book to preserve for the people of Franklin County an imperishable record of its early history — now existing only in scattering and detached papers and records, which are every year wasting away. To write the history of a single county, may to some appear like a very small business; while to others it is considered very desirable that someone should do so in every county. How else are the names and memory of our early settlers and friends to be preserved? And who is there that would not be pleased to look back, or to have his children look back, upon some record of his early days, and of departed friends? . It has been the writer’s object in this compilation, to give a correct statement of all events worthy of remembrance, with their proper dates, so as to form a book of ready reference, such as will be convenient and interesting to all residents of the county.

History of the City of Cleveland

History of the City of Cleveland – Walter Scott Robison

This finely arranged book of almost 250 pages upon the history of Ohio’s metropolis Cleveland fills the place for which it was intended with no small degree of success, and has the advantage which no former history of the city possesses, that of conciseness combined with newness. It has a vast amount of information clearly arranged, and its writer has shown himself acquainted with and interested in his task.
