INTRODUCTION 



U[ WORD or two of apology is due my patrons for the delay 

/I in the appearance of the Directory, — the first day of 
TjY November last was the time the Compiler intended for its 
\J appearance. On the 14th d-iy of June, 1875, 1 was stricken 
down with sickness — so severe, that the following December found 
me just able to be about, yet not strong enough for hardy exer- 
cise. In May, 1876, I commenced taking an enumeration of the 
City, but my last year's disease returning, enfeebled me so much 
that the work was not completed until about the first day of 
July following. Being my own type-setter, made it an arduous 
undertaking, without the lingering effects of my two summers' 
illness, which compelled me to stop work at different times for 
three or four days, and even for a week at a time. This is 
my apology for appearing before you at this late day. 

To comp3nsate my patrons for this unavoidable delay, I have 
given them some forty more pages than I first intended, and 
added such a variety of useful information, I am sure will be 
pleasing to my many readers. S?e Table of Contents. 

This Directory is made up so differently from other works of 
the kind, that the reader will be interested in almost every page. 
Those seeking information as to the population of our City, by 
adding up the first and second columns of figures, the total result 
will give them the number of inhabitants— the total result of the 
third and fourth columns will give the number of minors under 
21 years of age. According to my count, I make the population 
a few under five thousand. This is less than many claimed. I 
do not claim perfection for the Directory — but I do claim that 
it is an improvement on all that have been previously published. 
That is all I claim. Over twenty-five hundred names will be 
found in the Directory department alone. 

The " Three Score and Tex " department will be read with 
deep interest. For the few sketches I have obtained, the state- 



iv WHITE'S MOUNT VERNON DIRECTORY. 

ments made therein were given by the persons named . They will 
please accept my thanks. Other sketches were promised, which 
I should have been pleased to have procured, but my continued 
ill health made it impossible for me to devote the time necessary 
to obtained the information required. 

If life and health are spared, I shall endeavor to get up an- 
other work that will contain biographical sketches of all citizens 
over 70 years of age, not only of this city, but will also include 
the whole county. 

Such errors of omission or commission my kind readers may 
discover, I respectfully ask them to overlook, for they are more 
annoying to the writer than to the reader.

LVI. 
NORMAN W. PUTNAM. 
Mr. Norman W. Putnam, of Gambler, Ohio, was born in 
Windi^or county, Vermont, on the 21st clay of October, 1800. 
Came to Gambier in 1829. AVas employed as clerk in the College 
Store, where he remained nearly five years. Was married to 
Miss 3Iaria Douglass, in February, 1833, to whom were born 
ten children — seven now living. 

From " Wldreth^s Fioneers of O/iio,^^ it appears that all the 
Putnams, of New England, descended from John Putnam, who 
emigrated from Buckinghamshire, England, and settled in 
Salem, Massachusetts, in 1634, where General Israel Putnam 
was born in 1717. General Rufus Putnam was born at Sutton, 
"Worcester county, Massachusetts, in 1733. At the same place, 
Sutton, and not far from the same time, the grand-father of 
Norman Putnam was born. In regard to the exact relationship 
j between the different branches of the Putnam family, our inform- 
j ant is unable to determine. 

LVII LVIII. 

JAMES S. AND SOPHIA A. SAWER. 

Mr. James Smith Sawer, of Gambier, was born in Leiston, 

county of Suffolk, England, on the 12th day of October, 1804. 

Came to Delaware county, Ohio, in 1833. Moved to Gambier in 

1834. Went back to England in 1835. Was married to Mis? 

j Sophia Adams in 1836. Mr.' Sawer returned to Gambier in 1836. 

I Mrs. Sophia A. Sawer, ?iee Adams, was born in Rushangles,

MOUNT VERNON. 



^OR a brief sketch of Mount Vernon, the compiler of this 
3^ work, was in hopes of being able to have secured an abler 
^5 pen than his own. In this he failed. He has been forced 
to become his own historian. He desires the kind wishes of his 
fellow-citizens for the success of an undertaking he ventured 
upon with many doubts and fears. 

Howe's " Early Recollections of Ohio," and the Honorable 
A. Banning Norton's " History of Knox County, Ohio," both 
excellent works, has left so little to be said about the early histo- 
ry of our city, that it is almost impossible to write upon the sub- 
ject without re-producing that upon wliich they both spent so 
much time and labor, and I do not wish to encroach upon their 
" manor " more than is absolutely required. 

I quote a paragraph from Howe's " Recollections," on account 
of its being more condensed and to the point, than Mr. Norton's. 
Mr. Norton's account of the early settlement of our city, runs 
through some sixty pages of his work, and has so many personal 
anecdotes mixed up in the narrative, as to render it too burden- 
some for a work of this brief description. Howe writes : 

" The early settlers of the county were mainly from the Mid- 
dle States, with some of New England origin. In 1805 Mount 
Veron was laid out, and named by the proprietors of the soil, 
who were Joseph Walker, Thomas B. Patterson and Ben- 
jamin Butler." Mount Vernon was named after the family 
residence of General Washington. " At this time the county 
was thinly settled. Two years after, the principal settlers were, 
as far as they are recollected, the Rileys, Darlings, Shrimplins, 
Butlers, Critchtields, Welkers, Dials, Logues and De Witts, on 
the Vernon river. In other parts of the county the Hurds, the 
Beams, Hunts and Dimick, Kerr, Ayres, Houck, Dalrymple, 
Hilliard, the Youngs, Mitchells, Bryants, Knights and Walkers. 
In the spring of 1807 there were only three families living on 
the plat of Mount Vernon, viz : Benjamin Butler, tavern keep- 
er, from Pennsylvania, Peter Coyle, and James Craig. The 



10 WHITE'S MOUNT VERXOX DIRECTORY. 



early settlers of the villag;?. were, besides those nam?cl, Joseph 
and James Walker, Michael Click, David and William Petti- 
grew, Samuel Kratzer, Oilman Bryant, and Rev. James Smith, 
who came in 180§, and was the first Methodist clergyman." 

The rii.^e played upon the Commissioners appointed to locate 
the Seat of Justice for the County of Knox, has been published 
and narrated so often, that it has become as familiar to all "as a 
twice tolil tale," consequently I refrain from giving it place in 
this sketch. Mr. Xorton gives three versions of the affair, as re- 
lated to him by old settlers. Clinton, the only rival for the 
prize, at tliat time, was far ahead of Mount Vernon, submitted 
with a bad grace, and for over five years, made great efforts to 
obtain a re-hearing. But all in vain. 

Tlie first store opened in Mount Vernon, was owned l)y Mr. 
Oilman Bryant, and was situated on the lot where now stands 
the store of Messrs. J. C. Swetland & Co., south west corner of 
Main and Oambier streets. " It was a little story and-a-half 
sycamore cabin, where he kept powder, shot, lead, whisky, etc., 
for sale to the Indians, and the few whites, in 1S07." — Xorton. 

"The first brick building was erected in the spring of 1815, 
by Mr. Oilman Bryant." — Howe. During the past season, this 
old building has been demolished, and the Honorable ITexky B. 
CuiiTis has erected on its site one of the most substantial and 
beautiful public buildings in Central Ohio. 

" The first church, the Old School Presbyterian, (now down,) 
was built about 1817. It was of brick, forty feet square, and one 
story high ; the first Pastor wastlie Rev. James Scott. Tlie first 
licensed preacher in the county was the Rev. William Thrift, a 
Baptist, from Loudon county, Virginia, who came in 1807, and 
travelled from house to house." — Hoice. 

Upon the site of the church just alluded to, the Presbyterian 
society erected a large and substantial frame cliurch. This last 
building was destroyed by fire, and a few years since the mem- 
bers of the church erected the present beautiful edifice. The 
present Pastor is the Rev. O. H. Newton. 

The first boundary lines of the city I recollect of seeing, 
though I placed but little confidt^nce in its reliability, was given 
by a 3Iount Vernon correspondent of the Columbus Ohio Sicde 
./ounml, and appeared under date of January 9, 18(59, and reads 
as follows : 

" Mount Vernon is boundetl on tlie north by tlie Fifth Ward 
and John II. Roberts ; on tlieeast by Oambier Hill and the but-

ter and egj? wagons of George B. Potvvin ; on the south by the 
waters of Owl Creek, the Gas Works and Arentrue's brewery ; 
and on the west by George Raymond's tannery, and Norton's 
Mill Race ! " 

February 26, 1845, the State Legislature passed an act entitled 
" An Act to Incorjjorate the Town of Mount Vernon, in Knox 
county," the first section reads cis follows : 

Sec. 1. Be it Ordained by the Genercd Assembty of the St(de of 
Ohio, That so much of the town of Mount Vernon, in the coun- 
ty of Knox, as is comprised in the limits hereinafter described, 
that is to say, all the in-lots, streets and alleys, and otlier public 
ground bordered by the same, within the old original town plat, 
and its several recorded and confirmed additions, togetlier with 
idl fractions of lots or parcels of ground lying between the old 
town plat and either of said additions, especially to include 
such fractions or portions of ground not already laid out into 
town lots, as lie b^tweaa the south line of Hamtramc.v street, 
and the north line of Burgess street, extended between the Ham- 
tramck addition and Norton's addition ; and so mucli of like 
ground as lies south of the north line of Chestnut street, extend- 
ed east to the Coshocton road, and to include one tier of in-lots 
of usual size on the north side of Chestnut street, so extended 
as aforesaid ; also embracing the following grounds— commen- 
cing at Lambton Square, at the junction of the Mansfield and 
Wooster roads ; thence along the Mansfield road to the intersec- 
tion of the north line of the cross street or road, to the new 
grave-yard ; thence along the north line of said cross street to 
the grave-yard lot ; thence north, and so running around said 
grave-yard lot and including the school house lot to the south 
east corner thereof; thence following the aforesaid graveyard 
street, to the east line of the Wooster road ; thence southward 
along the east line of the said W^ooster road and the east line of 
Gay street, as extended to North street ; thence west to Main or 
Market street; thence north to the place of beginning, except 
such lots and streets in any of said plats or additions as have 
been vacated ; Provided, That this exception shall not exclude 
tlie vacated lots and streets east of Division street, and north of 
Front street in the eastern addition, but the same are hereby in- 
cluded in the limits according to the eastern boundary of said 
addition, as originally laid out and recorded, be and the same is 
hereby created into a town corporate, to be known by the name 
of the town of Mount Vernon ; Provided, That all ground 
hereafter laid out and recorded as town lots, or additions to said 
town, by name or otherwise, if contiguous thereto, shall, from 
the time of being so recorded, be included within the corporate 
limits of said town and constitute a part thereof. 

Farther provisions of the above quoted act of incorporation, 
divided the town into five AVards, and allotted one Councilman 
to each Ward, anc^ provided for their election ; and also, for the 



12 WHITE'S MOUNT VERNON DIRECTOIIY. 



election of one Mayor, and one Recorder for the town at large. ; 
The tir?it officers elected under this act of incorporation, were 
as follows : Isaac Davis, Mayor — James Smith, Jr., Recor- 
der — and the following Councilmen — First Ward, J. Elliott — 
Second Ward, Job Evans— Third Ward, R. C. Hurd— Fourth 
Ward, H. B. Curtis — Fifth Ward, Charles Cooper. 

Farther provisions of the act provided for the election of one 
town Treasurer, and one town ^Marshal, and one Street Commis- i 
sioner. For these places I find that A. C. Elliott was elected 
as Treasurer, C. L. Benxett, Marshal, and J. L. Young, Street j 
Commissioner. 

Sec. lix. of the Municipal Code, passed May 3, 1852, provides 
" for the election of two Trustees for each Ward." 

"Sec. XXI. Any town which by the special act of incorpo- j 
ration has been divided into Wards, shall be denominated a city \ 
of the Second Class, if the Council shall so determine." — O/iio 
Law, 2K(«sed 1853. 

Sec. VII., of an Act to provide for the Organization of Muni- 
cipal Corporations, reads in part, as follows : " No incorporated 
village shall be advanced to the grade of a City of the Second 
Class until it shall have attained a population of five thousand." 
—rassed Mmj 7, 1869. 

FIRST WORK EVER DONE ON THE STREETS OF MOUNT VERNON. 

Mr. Norton, in his " History of Knox County," pages 95-6, 
gives this description of the first work ever done on the streets 
of Mount Vernon : 

"Jonathan Hunt informs us he was one of the volunteer 
workers on the streets, at the time the Commissioners came on, 
(to locate the county seat,) and that Oilman Bryant sort of boss- 
ed the work, and, being a cripple, he tended on them, and gave 
out the\\ hisky and water, cheering them up as he came around, 
saying, ' work like men in harvest, but keep sober, boys.' — 
Mike Click, and John Click, his brother, drove the oxen. Mike 
was a bully hand with a team, and made them tear up stumps, 
haul logs, plow, and scrape, as necessary. Men never worked 
better on a road than that force then did. They chopped down 
trees, cut off logs, grubbed, dug down rough places, filled up 
gulleys, burned log heaps, and made a wonderful change in the 
appearance of things. It was the first work ever done on the 
streets of Mount Vernon."

MOUiNT VEKJNON'S PRESENT BOUxNDARY LINES. 

JkN the 2d day of March, 1870, our City Council passed "An 
jjjj Ordinance Defining and Establishing the Corporate Limits 

Y of the City of Mount Vernon, Ohio." The provisions of this 
Ordinance, I doubt not, will be new to most of my readers, and 
as a part of the current history of our beautiful City, the compi- 
ler of this work feels constrained to re-produce it here entire, 
for the information of our citizens. The provisions of the Ordi- 
nance reads as follows : 

Sec. 1. Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of Mount 
Vernon, That the City Corporation Line of the City of Mount 
Vernon be, and is hereby established by the following described 
lines, to-wit: 

Beginning at the south-west corner of the north abutment of 
the bridge at the south end of Main street, and running thence

Things to be HeineiTibei-ecl, 

A pound avoirdupois is equal to 7,000 grain-;. 

If a stone be dropped from the hand, it will fall through IG 
feet during the first second of time. 

Steel is the strongest metal, but gold is the most malleable; 
for a cubic inch of gold can be l)eaten out so as to cover the floor 
of a room 50 feet long and 40 feet wide. 

The diamond is the hardest solid ; that is to say, it can scratch 
everything else, but nothing else can scratch it. 

A cubic inch of water weighs nearly 252 grains; and, there- 
fore, four cubic inches weigh nearly 1,000 grains. 

100 cubic inches of air weigh 31 grains. 

100 cubic inches of carbonic acid weigh 47 grains. 

100 cubic inches of hydrogen only weigh 2 grains. 

The pressure of the r.tmosphere will suppor'*- a C(;lui;in of mer- 
cury 30 inches high, and a column of water more than 30 feet high. 

Sound travels through air at a velocity of about 1,100 feet in 
one second of time. 

If a musical string vibrates 60 times in one second, it emits a 
deep, low note ; if it vibrates 10,000 times in one second, it emits 
a slirill, high note. 

The heat' required to melt a pound of ice would heat 79 pounds 
of water one degree. Tlie heat required to boil away a pound 
of boiling water would heat 537 pounds of water one degree.

LITERARY ANI> OTHER SOCIETIES. 



(jIMe quote from Norton's " History of Knox County," page 
^^ 270. " The first Society of a literary character, established 
at Mount Vernon, was the 'Polemic Society,' in 1815, 
which was kept up until 1817, and included among its members 
the more talkative and social citizens. It was converted into a 
Thespian Society, and was well sustained for many years. The- 
atrical performances were generally gotten up every winter, for 
a number of years, and were very creditable to those concerned. 
The object was to spend the long winter evenings agreeably — not 
to make money. Lawyers, DoCjtors, Merchants, and Students, 

I lent a hand as occasion required. Among the active and valua- 
ble upon the boards, were Dr. R. P. Moore, Philo L. Norton, J. 

[ W. Warden, Charles Sager, T. G. Plummer, Jacob Davis, Wm. 

j Smith, S. W. Hildreth, S. W. Farquhar, Eli Miller, Henry B. 

I Curtis, T. W. Rogers, Isaac Hadley, John Colerick, J. S. Ban- 

I ning, and Calvin Hill. The exhibitions were usually at the 
Court House, or at the Golden Swan Inn. (The Golden Swan 

I Inn building is now known as the Swetland and Banner office 
corner. — White.) The clothing, equipments and scenery, were 
of very rich material. One of the old actors says — ' it was most 
splendidly illustrated with georgeous parahernalia in most pro- 
fuse variety and transcends representation.' " 

In 181 G "The Mount Vernon Library Society " was formed. 
In 1821-2 the young bachelors of the town formed " The Mount 
Vernon Literary Society." In 1880 " The Mount Vernon Lyce- 
um " was organized, and was well sustained for many years. 

About the year 1830, a regular " Amateur Dramatic Associa- 
tion" was organized, and continued in existence until about 

! 1840. The representations took place in the. second story of the 

; 3 

S ^ 



^18 WHITE'S MOUNT VERNON DIRECTORY. 



Huiitsberry building, now known as the " Old ^Masonic Hall." 
At that time the whole of the second story was one large room, i 
and, for Theatrical purjioses, answered very well. The promi- | 
nent members were, F. J. Zimmerman, Wm. Thompson, James 
Blake, .James Smith, PL C. Vore, Benj. F. Smith, Benj. Colopy, 
N. N. Hill, Thomas Shaw, David Brentlinger, Elijah Stevens, 
Alex. Elliott, and Jacob B. Brown. One farce gave our citizens I 
great amusement, and is often spoken of yet, viz : " Raising the ] 
Wind." Among the cast of characters, now recolleced, were — 
"Jeremy Diddler," F. J. Zimmerman; " Peggy, the beautiful 
]Maid at the foot of the Hill," was well sustained by Thomas 
Shaw. David Brentlinger was the company's Singer and Ven- 
triloquist. The Orchestra consisted of N. N. Hill, Benj. Colopy 
and Alex. Elliott. Stage Managers, B. F. Smith and F, J. Zim- 
merman. 

In 1S;U, a " Mechanics' Society " was organized, which con- 
tinued in operation until 1840. In 1839, a society called the 
" Franklin," was formed for mental improvement. 

" In 1S.')(I, Zohar Blair, Noah Hill, Robert Thompson, Daniel 
Clark, and Samuel Davis, started ' The Mechanics' Mutual Pro- 
tection Association,' which, after two years, was merged in the 
Brotherhood of the Union, and continued till 1854." 

In December, 1849, several gentlemen of Mount Vernon set 
about getting up a Historical Society for Knox County, and, in 
1850, a constitution was drawn up and signed by "thirty-two 
gentlemen, fourteen of whom," writes Mr. Norton, " have pass- 
ed way from earth. Twelve years have passed by, the society 
long since was numbered with the things that were— and this— 
( the " History of Knox County,")— comes the nearest to being 
a report of any thing that yet has emanated from any of its mem- 
bers." 

:Mr. Norton gives the names of the members of the Histori- 
cal Society, which we take pleasure in copying, viz: 

Ilosmer Curtis, Oilman Bryant, Joseph Muenscher, M. E. 
Striel)y, Jesse B. Thomas, James Scott, Daniel S. Norton, M. H. 
Mitchell, Henry B. Curtis, R. C. Hurd, R. R. Sloan, A. Banning 
Norton, C. P. Buckingham, G. W. Morgan, C. Delano, Walter 
Smith, M. W. Stamp, N. N. Hill, George Browning, Matthew 
Thompson, J. C. Ramsey, J. N. Burr, Samuel Israel, W. Beam, 
J. W. Vance, W. H. Smith, John C. Stockton, D. Potwin, John 
W. White, J. H. Peacock, Samuel Mower, John W. Russell. 
Hosmei- Curtis was chosen President; G. Bryant, Vice President;

R. C. Hurd, Treasurer ; Rev. J. Muenscher, Corresponding Sec- 
retary ; M. E. Strieby, Recording Secretary ; R. R. Sloan, Cabinet 
Keeper. 

In 1856, Rev. Dr. Muenscher formed a new " Mount Vernon 
Library Society," that continued in existence till some time in 
18G4. 

In ISoB, Dr. T. Eugene Clark, Robert Buck, J. Q. Buck, NVm. 
A. Bounds, Thomas Wilson, C. Springer and John W. White, 
associated together, and formed " The Atheneum," for Amateur 
Theatrical representations. They were assisted by Mrs. J. Q. 
Buck, Miss Irene Swan, and Miss Sallie Swetnam, of Cincinna- 



ti, and Miss Julia Irvine of New York city. The association | 
continued for two years, and numerous performances w^ere given { 

j the citizens. 

j On the evening of Monday, February 16, 1874, an association 

i of young ladies and gentlemen of this city, gave an Amateur 
Dramatic entertainment, at Wolff's Hall. The pieces selected 
were the popular drama entitled "All that Glitters is not Gold," 
and the laughable farce of " The Quiet Family." The Banner, 
of February 20, speaking of the first night's performance, says : 

, " The house was crowded to overflowing, and every thing pass- 
ed off to the entire satisfaction of all concerned The 

audience were so well pleased with the performance, that it was 
repeated, by general request, on the next evening." 

On the evening of May 4, 1874, the same association placed 
upon the boards the pleasing drama of " Down by the Sea," and 
the roaring farce of " Raising the Wind." This entertainment 
was given under the auspices, and for the benefit of the " Mount 
Vernox SiLViiR Cornet Band." The performance of these 
two pieces gave as much, if not more, satisfaction, to the audi- 
ence, than the peformances of February 16, and 17, 1874. 

On the evening of February 25, 1876, the same association pre- 
sented to our people, at Kirk Hall, " The Honeymoon," for the 
benefit of the "Soldiers' Monument." The city newspapers 
of the day claimed that the members of the association surpass- 
ed their previous performances. The play, by request, was re- 
peated the next evening. The Programme of " The Honey- 
moon," was thought worthy, by the committee, of a place in the 
Corner Stone of the Monument. 

As an act of justice to the ladies and gentlemen composing 
the "Amateur Dramatic Association," of this city, as the pro- 
ceeds of ALL their entertainments, were devoted to charitable

In the winter of 1876, some of the scholars of the Mount Ver- 
non High School, formed "The Pi Delta Psi Society," and 
held weekly meetings. On the evening of May 26, 1876, the So- 
ciety gave a Grand Dramatic Entertainment at Kirk Hall. The 
entertainment was highly appreciated by a large and intelligent 
audience. The Programme was an excellent one. Among the 
performers were Charles M. Pepper, Samuel R. Gotshall, Flora 
Stephens, Emma Shaw, Ella Shaw, Charles \V. Doty, Sue Miller, 
3Iay Snook, Kate E. Swetland, Jessie White, A. \Vm. Marsh, 
Harrie ]Martin, Louis Lane, Frank Harper, Clara McFarland, 
Jennie Chapman, Mary Sapp. 

June 28, 1876, the scholars of " Saint Vincent De Paul's 
Pauochial School," of this city, gave a delightful entertain- 
ment at Kirk Hall. The only drawback to the Programme 
was its extreme length, which must have been fotiguing to the 
3'outhful performers, ranging in age from seven years to fourteen.

THE MYSTEKY OF PERFUME. 



lo 



one has yet been able to analyze or demonstrate the assen- 
^ tial action of perfume. Gas can be weiglied, but no scents. 
The smallest known creatures— the very monads of life— can 
be caught by a microscope lens and made to deliver up the se- 
crets of their organization ; but what is it that emanates from 
the pouch of the musk-deer that fills a whole space for years and 
years with its penetrating odor — an odor that an illimitable num- 
ber of extraneous substances can carry on without diminishing 
either its size or weight— and what is that the warm summer air 
brings to us from the flowers, no man' has yet been able to deter- 
mine. So fine, so subtle, so imponderable, it has eluded both our 
most delicate weights and measures and our strongest lenses. If 
we come to the essence of each odor, we should have made an 
enormous stride forward, both in hygiene and in chemistry, and 
none would profit more than the medical profession, if it could 
be as conclusively demonstrated that such an odor proceeded 
from such an such a cause, as we already know of sulphur, sul- 
phurate hydrogen, ammonia, and the like. 



When Tamberlik, the famous tenor, was once in the vicini- 
ty of Vera Cruz, he was captured by Mexican brigands, together 
with $40,000 which he had upon his person. Learning who he 
was, they persuaded him to sing for them, and were so mu:;h 
pleased with his performance that they restored his money and 
his liberty, and also give him $2000 for the pleasure he had con- 
ferred.

THE LEADING FAMILY NEWSPAPER. 



lT^UNBI^RY i>< situated on the Cleveland, Mount Vernon and 
^J~^ Colunilms Riilroad,— centrally located, and with a rapid- 
ly jiTowinu' i)()i)uhiti<)n. 

" The SPECTATOR is the only paper published in the town, and 
is a <>-eneral household favorite. The career of this paper during 
the few years of its history, marks the success which seldom fails, 
when industry, perseverance, able and faithful management 
are united in conducting a newspaper. The SPECTATOR is a 
seven column folio, published every Tluirsday, and is in all re- 
spects a first class Journal. Nothing is admitted into its Ed itorial 
or News columns, that can offend the most fastidious sentiments 
or taste. Thus it is essentially a FAMILY NEWSPAPER. 
Its ^Market Reports ai-e carefully prepared and corrected weekly. 
" Indepcndmi in all things but Neutral in nothing." Its opinions 
upon public topics are as freely and explicitly declared as they 
are carefully considered and adopted. Thus its influence upon 
public affairs is deep and strong. There are few country Journals 
which can present such a record, and it is one that will be accor- 
ded l)y all its patrons without hesitation. Its local columns are 
eiiuaiied by few ; besides giving all the available news in its own 
quarters, it also has Correspondents in all the larger places around 
it. Its Editorials are all on the latest subjects, exposing all ras- 
cality, either at home or abroad, and are given with the best of 
its aiiility, no matter whom it praises, flatters or injures. 

II weekly contains all Congressional News, besides News from 
the West, the East, the South, the North, from Washington, and 
IVoiii Foreign Lands, and one copy contains as much reading 
matter as any two papers published in the county. In all its 
items it publishes only what is truthful and reliable, making it 
the i)ai)er that the parent may, without fear, place before his 
family. 

gifj an gidtjertlfjinu llli^dium, 

The SPECTATOR cannot be excelled in the district wherein it 
circulates.

A NOBLE PHYSICIAN. 

ISHOP BEDELL, in an Address to a graduatino: medical 
class, dwells u[)on the influence of conscientiousness in a 
Physician, He gives the following interesting anecdote as 
an illustration of what he means by that moral quality: 

" I was very ill in Chamounix, under the shadow of Mont 
Blanc. Those grand ice pinnacles, that majestic dome of snow, 
those slow-creeping glaciers, that brawling Arve, give to the 
valley— itself 4,000 feet above the sea level — an atmosphere 
which invalids resort to for health, and strong men for the lux- 
ury of breathing in. Men are not expected to be ill there. 

" So there was no physician resident nearer than Geneva, — a 
long day's journey. But a physician had taken a house at Cha- 
mounix for the summer, waiting with his family until a lucra- 
tive situation, for which he had applied, should be open to him. 
He was in daily expectation of being summoned to his new 
home, when he was summoned to my bedside. 

" He found a case of typhus fever. He watched and nursed 
n^e like a brother. During long weeks of semi-consciousness his 
presence met every moment of need. After about a month he 
received the welcome message that his new home was ready. He 
replied that he would come immediately, for his patient was re- 
covering. 

" But his patient relapsed. Again dangerous symptoms set 
in. And in the midst of them came a letter indicating that 
great anxiety existed for his presence at his new home. He 
asked for a little delay, expecting to be speedily relieved ; but the 
symptoms were aggravated, and the disease unbroken. 

" A telegram arrived, summoning him in a week. The week 
passed. He replied to it that his patient needed care a few days 
longer. 

" He was not an unknown man. Trained in the Jesuit Col- 
lege at Turin, in the same class with Cavour, the great statesman 
of Italy, he devoted himself to medicine, and afterward taught 
it, in the medical Faculty of that city. During the Crimean war 
he was the head of a medical staff on the field. He had solicit- 
ed the position which was now open to him, and had expected 
it anxiously. He was a devoted Roman C'atholic, an Italian, 
having no ties nor any particular sympathy with an American 
and a Protestant. 



1281155 

^ " " " ^ 

WHITE'S MOUNT VERNON DIRECTORY. 35 



" But his patient needed him. He stood between him and 
death. There was no one within a long day's journey to take 
that place. And, therefore, when the next telegram arrived, 
that he must come within twenty-four hours or the position 
would be given to another applicant, he calmly telegraphed in 
reply— his patient needed him. He would sacrifice the place, 
but not his duty. 

"That was conscknttoimiess. And I write the name of 
Charles Dupkaz high on the scroll of my grateful recollections 
of noble men — Physicians." 



SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION. 

^[T is now well known tliat many substances, under certain 
i| combinations, will take fire of themselves, upon the princi- 
] pie known as spontaneous combustion. 

Cotton, saturated with linseed oil, has been known to inflame 
within two hours. 

Canvass, painted with white lead and oil, dried, rolled, and 
put under cover, burned in a few hours. 

An old packing sheet, smeared witli oil, took fire. 

Cotton Rags, on which oil had been spilled, took fire while be- 
i ig delivered from a cellar. 

Dirty Rags, upon which workmen have wiped oil from their 
hands; these, thrown into a heap, are pretty sure to heat and 
ignite in time. 

Linseed Oil, dropped upon wool, has caused several fires. 

The paint and oil room of a carriage shop burst into a flame ; 
cause, wood work smeared with flax seed oil. 

Bituminous coal has burned spontaneously, and caused several 
large conflagrations. 

Wool, greased for carding, ignited in a few hours. 

Linen rags, in paper mills, undergoing fermentation, require 
careful attention. 

A species of firew^orks known as " red fire," purchased on the 
fourth of July, and not used, subsequently ignited and set fire to 
the house. 

A man seated himself upon an empty oil barrel, which had 
been standing for some time upon the side walk, exposed to the 
sun. Wishing to light his pipe, he struck a match upon the bar- 
rel, when the gas, with which it was filled, exploded, severely 
injuring the temporary tenant.

COUNTY AGRICDLTUKAL SOCIETY. 



Records of the proceedings of the first Agricultural Fairs held 
in Knox County, 1 have utterly failed to unearth,— not even the 
preliminary steps taken to effect an organization can be obtained 
at this date. This should not be the case, and I trust that all fu- 
ture officers of this important county Association, and more 
particularly the Secretaries, will see that a foir and impartial re- 
cord of every transaction of the Society is placed upon the pro- 
per minute book. 

The first Knox County Fair that I have any recollection of, 
was held, I believe, in 1852 or 1858. The display made was no- 
thing to brag of. The Court Room of the Court House, then 
standing on the north-west quarter of the Public Square, was 
made use of for an Art Hall. Mr. A. Ban, Norton took promi- 
nent part in its management— either as its President or Secretary, 
The officers of the Society for 187G, are : 
President — Alexander Cassil, 
Vice President— Peres Critchfleld. 
Secretary— Willard S. Hyde. 
Treasurer — Ira M. McFarland. 

Board of Directors — Clinton Township, two members. 
Other Townships, one each.

JAMES M. ANDREWS, 

RESPECTFULLY informs his friends, and the public general- 
ly, that he is still in the trade, and has been, without inter- 
mission, since he first opened, April 1, 1853. The rapidity with 
which his trade has increased, within the few past years, com- 
pells him to enlarge his place of business, to accommodate this 
increase of trade. He has just erected a large three story brick 
block, one doors south of his old stand, where he will be happy 
to meet all his old customers, and as many new ones as may be 
disposed to extend to him their patronage. Give him a call. 

Re has iiojv on Hand, and for Sale, 

and will continue to add, from time to time, as the demand may 
require, 

THE BEST SELECTED STOCK OF 

— AND — 

Fr^esh Fa/viily Pi^oyisions, 
TO BE FO JJKD IKMT. VERjYOJ^ MARKET. 

Thankful to his friends for past favors, he solicits a continu- 
ance of their custom, and the custom of the public, both of the 
city, and of the surrounding country. 

His Store is on the East Side of Main Street, 
Seven Doors South of Ganibier Street. DOj\^' T 
FORGET THE PLACE.

light by one of the porters, when a violent explosion occurred, 
setting: fire to the building.

OxE evening, during i:>erformances on the Organ of the Catho- 
lic Cathedral in Boston, a mouse, evidently drawn from his re- 
treat by the mellow sounds, ran in front of the white linen which 
hangs on the inside of the sanctuary railing. Slowly sitting back 
on his haunches, he remained motionless as a statue, seemingly 
conscious of nothing except the rich, soft tones. Suddenly the 
organist made a change, and sharp, quick notes succeeded the 
gentle ones, and the little listener, with frightened air, quickly 
scampered away.

EMPflASIS. 

SO^NIE years n^o there was a student at the Theological Sem- 
inary at Andover, who had an excellent opinion of his 
own talents. On one occasion lie asked the professor who 
^ taught elocution at the time, " What do I specially need to 
learn in this department ?" " You ought first to learn to read," 
said the professor. " Oh, I can read now," replied the student. 
The professor handed the young man a Testament, and pointing 
to the twenty-fifth verse of the twenty-fourth chapter of Luke's 
gospel, he asked him to read that. The student read, " Then he 
s.iicl unto theai, O fo^l^^ an I slow of hsart to b?li?ve all ths pro- 
phet? have spoken." "Ah," said the professor, "they were 
fools for believing the prophets, were they?" Of course that 
was not right, and so the young man tried again. " O fools, and 
slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken." 
"The prophets, then, were sometimes liars?" asked the i^rofes- 
sor. No : " O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the 
prophets have spoken." " According to this reading," the pro- 
fessor suggested, " the prophets were notorious liars." This was 
not a satisfactory conclusion, and so another trial was made. 
" O, fools and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have 
.y)oken.'''' "I see now," said the professor, " the prophets wrote 
tlie truth, but they spoke lies." This last criticism discouraged 
the student, and he acknowledged that he did not know how to 
read. The difficulty lies in the fact that the words "slow of 
heart to believe " applies to the whole of the latter part of the 
sentence, and emphasis on any particular word entirely destroys 
the meaning.

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTORS. 

T the first and second elections (1788 and 1792) all the elec- 
tors appointed voted for Washington, who was the only 
President ever chosen by an unanimous vote. At the third 
r^ V election (179(>) 189 electors were appointed, 71 of whom vo- 
"^ ted fin- John Adams and 68 of whom voted for Thomas Jef- 
ferson—electing Adams by a majority of only ttvo votes. The j 
electors did not divide by States or " colleges," as is shown by j 
these ficts : The people in North Carolina appointed 12 electors ; 
11 of them votedVor Jefferson and 1 for Adams. In Virginia 21 i 
electors were appointed: 20 voted for Jefferson and 1 for Adams, j 
Of the I I electors appointed in Maryland, 4 voted for Jefferson I 
and 7 for Adams. Of the io appointed in Pennsylvania, 14 vo- 
ted for Jefferson and 1 for Adams. 

At the fourth election (1800) occurred the fiimous contest be- I 
t ween Jeff ..^rson and Burr, each of whom received 78 votes, given 
by electors appointed in nine States. The 12 electors of New 
York, tlie 21 of Virginia, the 4 of Kentucky, the 3 of Tennessee, 
the 8 of South Carolina, and the 4 of Georgia, all voted solidly for 
bo(/i, intending that one should be President and the other Vice 
President, but not expressing any choice between them. The 15 
electors of Pennsylvania gave to each of them 8 votes, and 7 oth- ; 
ers each to Mr. Adams and Mr. Pincknsy. The 10 electors of I 
^Nlaryhuul divided equally between Jefferson and Burr, and also 
equally l)etween Adams' and Pinckney. The North Carolina 
electors were siniilarly divided. I 

The 12th amendment of the Constitution was an outcome of 
that memorable contest, requiring the electors to vote separately 
fv)r President and Vice President. Under that amendment only 
one election took place, prior to Van Buren, in which the elect- 
ors of one or more States were not divided in their choice accor- 
ding to personal preferences, as the following memoranda will 
show : 

Fifth election (1804). Of the 1 1 electors of Maryland, 9 voted 
for Jefferson and 2 for C. C. Pinckney. 

Sixth election (1808). Of the 19 electors of New York, 18 vo- 
ted for ^Madison and 6 for George Clinton. Of the Jl of ^Nfary- 
land, 9 voted for Madison and 2 for C. C, Pinckney. Of the 14 of 
North Carolina, 1 1 voted for Madison and 3 for Pincknev. 

S?venth election (1812). Of the 1 1 electors of Maryland, 6 vo- 
ted for Madison and o iov De\Vitt Clinton. 

P^ighth election (1816). In this election none of the colleges 
were divided for President, though for Vice President Connecti- 
cut was divided between James Ross and John 3Iarshall. The 
candidates for President were James Monroe and Rufus King. 

Ninth election (1820). Of the 8 electors of New Hampshire, 7 
voted for Monroe and 1 for John Q. Adams. Excepting this one, 
^lonroe received the voiCs of all the electors appointed. For 
Vice President, three of the colleges were divided. 

Tenth election (1824). Of the 80 electors of New York, 1 voted 
for Jackson, lO for J. Q. Adams, 5 for \V. H. Crawford, and 4

for H. Clay. Of the 3 of Delaware, 1 voted for Adams and 2 for 
Crawford. "^ Of the 11 of Maryland, 7 voted for Jackson, 3 for 
Adams, and 1 for Crawford. "^Of the o of Louisiana, 3 voted for 
Jackson and 2 for Adams. Of the 3 of Illinois, 2 voted for Jack- 
son and 1 for Adams. The votes for Vice President were simi- 
larlv given according to the preferences of the electors. 

Eleventh election (1828). Of the 9 electors of Maine, 1 voted 
for Jackson and 8 for Adams. Of the 3(i of New York, 20 voted 
for Jackson and 16 for Adams. Of the 11 of Maryland, 5 voted 
for Jackson and for Adams. There were similar divisions 
for Vice President. 

Twelfth election (1832). The college of Maryland was divided 
between Jackson and Clay. No divisions in electoral colleges 
since 1832 until 1872. The\leath of Horace Greeley left the elec- 
tors chosen in his interest free. They voted as their preferences 
dictated. 



OUR COAST LINES. 

fEW persons not familiar with geography will believe that 
the Pacific ocean boundary of the United States has a great- 
er extent of coast line than the Atlantic shore. The aggre- 
gate of our shore line on the Pacific is 12,734 miles, whilst 
•J on the Atlantic it is II ,860 miles, and on the Gulf of Mexico 
6843 miles. California contains 1 136 miles of the coast line on the 
Pacific, whilst she has also 272 miles of island shore and 240 miles 
of tide water river shore, making altogether 1648 miles of shore 
line. Texas has an actual coast line on the Gulf of 12i)9 miles, 
whilst Florida has 1144 miles on the Gulf, and 363 on the Atlan- 
tic, so that both exceed California in this particujar. It is the 
annexation of Alaska that has promoted the Pacific coast to a 
higher figure than the Atlantic, Alaska having 9830 miles of 
caast line. These figures are from the Coast Survey Reports. 



APPARENT AND MEAN TIME. 

Time is both apparent and mean. The sun is on the meridian 
at 12 o'clock on four days only in the year. It is sometimes as 
much as 16', minutes before or after twelve when its shadow 
strikes the noon-mark on the sun-dial. This is occasioned by 
the irregular motion of the earth on its axis and the inclination 
of its poles. This is called apparent time. Mean time is de- 
termined by the equitation of these irregularities for every day 
in the year. 



Anaximaxder, a philosopher, born at Miletus, Greece, b. c. 
610, was the first to delineate the surface of the earth, and mark 
the divisions of land and water upon an artificial globe.

WILLIAM FQRDNEY. 

Mr. William Fordnp:y, of the Fifth Ward, although not 
strictly coming under the head of " Three Score and Ten," as to 
age, y'et his long residence in Mount Vernon justly entitles him 
to a place with those more venerable in age. For forty-two years 
this city has been his abiding place, forty-one of those forty-two 
years have been spent in his present home, on upper Mulberry 
street. For the first years of his residence here, it was not unus- 
ual for him to stand in the back door of his house of a morning 
and shoot enough rabbits for breakfast and dinner, for between 
Mulberry street and the Sandusky road was a dense forest of 
trees and hazel bushes, the latter so closely packed as to prevent 
the passage of any thing larger than the smaller wild animals 
then so numerous. If appetite demanded a change of flesh for 
food, jNIr. Fordney had only to change position and go east, for 
between Mulberry and Main street, was another forest, abounding 
with squirrels, many of whom fell victims to his gun. Mount 
Vernon in 1834, although at that date quite a thriving town, and 
Mount Vernon in 1876, so far as permanent improvements are 
concerned, none but the earlier settlers have a correct idea of the 
vast contrast between the two periods named. 
Mr. Fordney was born in the town of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 
on the 2 1st day of January, 1812. In 1833 he married Miss Ann 
Barber Nagle, also of Lancaster, Penn. On the 28th day of 
November, 1834, he and his wife cast their lot with the people of 
this city. Mrs. Fordney died in this city on the 5th day of June, 
1859. To them were born eight children, five of whom are still 
living. 

XV. 

IIUSSELL T. CRANDALL. 

Mr. Russell T. Crandall, of the Fifth Ward, wa^i born in 
the town of Burlington, Unadilla county. New York, on the 
5th of January, 1802. Mr. Orandall came to Knox county, Ohio, 
in the year 182!). In the spring of 1876, Mr. C. was elected asses- 
sor for the Fifth Ward. 

XVI. 

NANCY HALL. 

Mrs. Nancy Hall, of the Second W^ard, was born .lanuary 
1, 1798, in Shenendoah county, Virginia, near Aspey Ferry. She 
came to Mount Vernon in 1872. 

XVII. 

MARY CARTER. 

Mrs. Mary Carter, of the Fifth W^ard, w^as born in (xeorge- 
town, (now a part of the District of Columbia,) June 22, 1805. 
Mrs. Carter came to Knox county, Ohio, in 1840;

JANE 1 1 EN E(} AN. 

Mrs. .Tank iri:NK(;AX, nee Miss Jaiu' Miaw, of (he 'lliird 
Ward, was honi «m the Kith day of March, IH(M, in Sixsidc, 
near Carroll lliil, Parish of Old Monl<land, Lanarkshire, 

Sfotlaiid. On tiu' (hiy of , IS — , slic inarriod 

Mr. William i Icncj^^an, of the Parish of Kiliniackshalt^an, coun- 
ty of Sli^n), Ireland. IMr. II. was horn on tlie -Ith <lay of Feb- 
ruary, lso;{, and died at Keokuk, Iowa, on the ITth day of Au- 
U'ust, IS7(I. Mr. and Mrs. II., with their family, came to Mount 
N'ernon in Is").'!. 

The suhject of this brief sketch, with her husband and family, 
left (ilas^ow, Scotland, Sejjteniber l(i, ist!*— Liverpool, I'^n^dand, 
September IS, and arrived at New Orleans, V. S. A., on the 2(ith 
day of December followin^^, thus the voyajje, between the port 
of departure, and the port of dis-embarkation, aj»pears to have 
been tliirteen Weeks and four days in duration. To vary the 
interest, and to add to the i»erils of thosi' " who oo down to 
the sea in ships," we find that the vessel, upon whose deck the 
lives :.nd fortunes of our hardy emi<i:rants were placed, Mas 
castaway in a storm, and thrown upon the sliores of an island 
now called Concon, situated near the barren coast of Yucatan, 
South America. The i)assen^'ers and crew were detained twen- 
ty-ei^ht days upon that desert island. 

l>urin^ their forced residence upon tlie island, the ])assen^('rs 
and crew, imitatinj^ the people of the country in which most of 
them were seeking a new home, orj^anized a ^jovernjiient and 
made laws for their own i)rotection, and unanimously elected 
Mr. William Ilene^an the first (fovernor of the State of Concon, 
South America. The neces.sity of this organization was soon 
api)arent. 

The island of Concon, for its favorable and safe harbors, was 
one of the favorite rende/Aous of the jtiratical vessels making 
those water-i their cruising grounds. One of those sea rovers 
passing the island, the ca})tain seeing the wrecked ship of our em- 
igrants, determined to take i)ossession, rob it of all the rigging 
and stores left upon it, (the passengers and crew, while waitihg 
for rescue, living in tents \\\Hn\ the shore.) 

To allay suspicion, the i)irates also landed, and ])itched their 
tents a short distance from those of our shi]>wrecke(l friends, as 
though they wished to rest awhile from their l)loody and mur- 
derous career. ()ne of the crew of the wrecked ship, wan- ; 
dering over the island one day, being aweary from his long and ' 
dirticult tramp, threw himself down l)ehind some rocks, and fell I 
asleep. How long he had remained in that unconscious state Jie ' 
knew not. He was finally awakened, by hearing voices in con- j 
versation, apparently, immediately above him. Listening for | 
awhile, he gathered enough of their conversation, to convince 
him that the voices i)elonged to some of the crew of the i)irati- 
cal vessel, and that the rascals were detailing to themselves 
their i)lans for attacking the unfortunate voyagers and sacking 



142 WHITE'S MOUNT VERNON DIRECTORY 



the wrecked vessel. After the departure of the loquacious pi- 
rates, the sailor made his way to his own camp, and detailed the 
plot of the pirates to Governor Henegan. 

After a consultation with his Council, the Governor formed his 

plans of retaliation, which were to capture the pirate vessel, and 

put to sea with his little colony. This was "carrying the war 

into Africa," with a vengeance, yet, under the circumstances, 

I was perfectly justifiable. 

I The Governor's plans were well laid, and would have been 
' successfully carried out, had not one of the passengers betrayed 
j the Governor's plans to the pirate chief. The pirates immediate- 
i ]y struck their tents, and began their retreat to their boats, and 
I thence to their vessel. In the melee that insued, the pirate cap- 
i tain was wounded so severely, as to compel his crew to take him 
I upon their shoulders. In this condition, with their helpless cap- 
i tain, the pirates reached their boats and made for their vessel. 
I AVhen upon her deck, they hoisted their sails, and put out to sea, 
I leaving our shipwrecked friends in possession of their diminu- 
I tive Republic, and like Alexander Selkirk, they could say — 
I " We are inonarohs of all we survey, 

1 Our rii^hts there are none to dispute." 

i Mrs. Henegan is now residing with her son John, on cast 

I High Street, the only survivor of nine children. 

] Of Mr. William Henegan, permit me to say a few words. Mr. 

I H. commenced Rail Roading at the age of 18, and so continued 

up to the time of his death, in 1870. He was Superintendent of 

I C,)astruf^tkon over mvny Railroads, both in Scotland and in 

: England, and acted in that capacity Ibr the first Railroad ever 

i built. In the construction of the Cleveland, iSIt. Vernon and 

I Columbus R. R., Mr. H. took an active part, and his labors at 

that time were highly appreciated. The road was then known 

as the Springfield, ^li. Vernon & Pittsburgh R. R. Hard times 

came, and the work on the road was suspended. Nearly three 

and twentv y(^>rs pissed ere the work on the road, under the 

; new organization, was resumed. Under the auspices of the new 

Company, his son John completed laying the track, between 

Sunbury and Kinderhook, the job his father had commenced 

twenty-three years previous.

JAMES HUTCHINSON. 

Mr. Ja:me> Hutchixsox, of the First Ward, iilthougli only 
a few months past his 67tli birth day, is one among tlie tew old 
citizens of our city, and has been a resident for over fifty-six 
years. Mr. Hutchinson was born near Baltimore, Maryland, on 
the Kith day of August, 1809. His parents came to Mount Ver- 
non in the*^ month of October, 182(1. On the 13th day of July, 
1830, he married Miss Sarah Stahl, of this city. 

In 1837, Mr. H. erected the large brick dwelling, (now owned 
and occupied by Mrs. Abbott,) near the corner of Gay and Front 
streets, and resided there for many years. In 1850 he built his 
present large and commodious brick residence, south east corner 
of Gay and Gambler streets, and in 1873, erected his store, a 
fine three story brick, on south INEain street. 

Mr. H. informs me, that in 1820, there were only seven brick 
houses in the town, and of those seven, three only now remain to 
mark the past. The building on the north east corner of ^Mulberry 
and Vine streets, now occupied by Matthias Kelly, Grocer, is 
one ; another is the old Fifth Ward School House and Masonic 
Hall, on north Mulberry street ; the thirfl has been so improved 
and modernized that its past apiiearance is but scarcely recalled 
to mind even by but a comj)arativcly few of the oldest residents, 
and to others its very existence is' forgotten. At that time, 
what is now Mr. Joseph M. Byers' pleasant residence, north west 
corner of Giv and Vine streets, was but a small one story brick 
building, built upon the east end of the lot. That old building 
is yet there, and still it is not there, for the modern improve- 
ments have completely hidden it from view. At that time, this 
little brick was occupied by William Vore, a teamster. About 
the year 1825, Vore picked"^ up and brought home a young lad 
nanied Lewis, whose father had been recently hung in Pitts- 
burgh, for mail and other robberies, committed in the mountains. 
One day Mr. Vore returned home from hunting wild pigeons and 
other g'ame. Thoughtlessly he left his gun standing in the chim- 
ney corner, without first examining to ascertain whether the 
load ha(l been discharged. The Lewis lad picked up the gun 
and went into the yard to play soldier. While thus engaged, 
Joseph Glaze, the little son of a neighbor, who lived in a log 
house on thelot on east Vine street, now known as the Dr. Officer 
lot, cams to Mr. Vore's for a bucket of water. Young Lewis, 
pointing the gun at Joseph, told him he was going to shoot him, 
pulled the trigger — the gun went off, lodging twenty-five shot in 
poor Joseph's breast. Joseph started for home, and when about 
half-way between Vore's and his father's house, fell dead in the 
road. His body was picked uj) by his sister Elizabeth, and car- 
ried into his father's house. Miss Elizabeth Glaze afterwards 
married, and became the mother of Anson Sprague, of this city. 

Another incident of Mr. Hutchinson's boj'ish days, is ever 
fresh in his memory. In 1827 Mr, H, and his young companions 
were keeping Hallow-E'en in the usual fashion ; (my readers all 



WHITE'S MOUNT VEllNON DIllKCTOUY. MO

of Vino and Mulberry streets stood a hewed lo^'' house, oceupicd

FREDERICK J. ZIMMER^fAN. 

]Mr. Frederick J. Zimmermax, of the First Ward, is a na- 
tive of ^Nlarvland. He was born in Hagerstown. of that State, 
on the :J4th"of June, 1S07. In the early fall of ISKJ, his father 
and lamily removed to INIount Vernon, and settled in a log house; 
then situated where the residence of ]Mrs. .John Irvine now 
stands, in the Seconal Ward. His father, Mr. (iodlive Zimmer- 
man, died in tins city, February 22, ls4o. For many years old 
yiv. Zimmerman kept tavern where ]Mr. T. R. Mead's ( Grocery 
Store now is. This old tavern l)uilding was removed, and ^Ir. 
Montgomery Drown erected a large brick edifice on tlie site of 
the oUl Zimmerman tavern. No doubt many of our old citizens 
r.MuemU'r the "Zimmerman tavern." Like f)thers of the old 
gentleman's nationality, 3Ir. Z. dearly loved h's i)i{)e or a good 
cigar. At that early day, tobacco was a luxury not easily obtain- 
etl ; but the old gentleman was eiiual to the emergenc-y, as his 
son Frederick can avouch for, for many a horse-back trip has ho 
taken to Lancaster, Ohio, an older settlement, to j)rocure the 
weed his father loved so well. Judging from personal feelings, 
for a good cigar, orii pipe full of i)leasant flavored tol)acco, is one 
of my weaknesses, but few of tlie smokers of the present day, 
would take so great a trouble upon themselves. 

Mr. Zimmerman informs me, that, at the tim(> Ids father came 
here, (ISK),) there was not a brick liouse in the village. Tlie 
brick house on the corner of Mne and Mulberry streets, now

owned and occupied by Mr. M. Kelly, was, at that time, in 
course of erection, the walls having reached the second floor. 

Mr. F. J. Zimmerman was married July 7th, 1835, to Miss 
Sarah Colopy, of this city. Miss Colopy was born in Virginia. 
Tier parents came to Ohio, and settled in Miller townsh'p, Knox

dren were born unto Mr. antl Mrs. Z. — six of whom are now liv- 
ing—two reside in this city, one in Akron, one in Jackson, 
Michigan, one in Chicago, and one in Mount Holly, this county. 

Mr. Zimmerman was Post-Master of this city some five years, 
under the administrations of Pierce and Buchanan. Mr. Z^ built 
the house he now resides in, on east Front street, and has dwelt 
therein for over thirty years.

Mr. Hadley's public life has been a remarkable one, having, 
for twenty-four years, held commissions, either from the Presi-

LI. 
SARAH PATTERSON. 

Mrs. Sarah Patterson, of the Fourth Ward, is now in the 
73d year of her ago, and is one of those active matrons, so few of 
whom remain witli us. Reared at a period when both sexes 
were enured to toil and hardships, unknown to the present gen- 
eration, she has preserved all her early habits, whieh enables her 
to bear the infirmities of old age with almost the characteristics 
of youth full of life and laudable ambition, 

Mrs. Patterson was born in Virginia, in 1S()4. When only two 
years of age, her parents emigrated from Virginia, (this was in 
the year 1806,) and settled on a farm within two miles of Utiea, 
Ohio, where she remained until a few years since, when she re- 
moved to this city, and took up her residence with her son, Mr. 
James Patterson. A part of this farm is in Licking county, and 
a part in Knox county. At that time a great many Indians 
made the forests of Ohio their home, and Licking and Knox 
counties, to this day, show many signs of their former presence. 

Sixty-two years ago, when the subject of this sketch was only 
fourteen years of age, her father being from home, she was sent 
by her mother to a mill located near Mount Vernon, — (the 
nearest mill to their farm,) for corn-meal. Sarah performed the 
trip on horse-back, following the Indian trail through the forests, 
and returned home safely with the much needed article of food. 
At that time there was only one log-cabin between their farm 
and the Owl Creek settlement, and the settlement was mostly 
inhabited by Indians. 

At one time, her father's family were all out of the house, at 
work on different parts of the farm. Imagine their surj)rise on \ 
returning to the house, to find their home in possession of six ! 
Indians, who had found the turnip patch, pulled up what they I 
needed, entered the house with their plunder, scattered all over | 
the floor the rinds, and were having a good time generally. 
Some were dajicing, while others were turning the flax-reel, the 
humming of which afforded them great amusement. 

On one occasion, an Indian Chief named Custo, came to their 
home, and requested them to make him a vest — which they did. 
The vest required three yards of Dimity. This will give the 
reader an idea of the size of this son of the forest. As payment, 
Custo gave the family a pair of scissors and a silk handkerchief. 
LII. 
JOHN LINN. 

Mr. Joiix LiNX, of the Fourth Ward, was born in Union 
county, Pennsylvania, in the year 1797, and emigrated to Ohio 
in 1844, and settled near Fredericktown, Knox county, and 
lived there until 1864, when he removed to Mount Vernon, and 
has resided here ever since. His home is with his son-in-law, 
]Mr. James Patterson. Mr. Linn is enjoying remarkable good 
health for a man of his advanced age— now in his 80th year. 
At the time ]Mr. Linn came to Ohio, 1844, he says there was only 
one house on the flat between Cooper's machine shop and the old 
tan-yard at the foot of Lathrop's hill, as it was then called. At 
that' time all the flat was one vast field of wheat.

LIII. 
MARY BARRY. 

Mrs. Mary Barry, nee Harney, of the Third Ward, was 
born on the 10th day of May, 1806, in the county of Waterford, 
Ireland. Miss Harney was married to Mr. John Barry, of tlie 
county Tipperary, Ireland, on the tOth day of April, 1829. 

Mr. and Mrs. Barry, with their family, left Ireland in the fall 
of 1849, and reached Mount Vernon, Ohio, in December of the 
same year, after a disastrous voyage of over fourteen weeks. 
A few'days after sailing, when almost in mid-ocean, after pass- 
ing a pleasant day in social chat over the prospects that awaited 
them in their new home, and dwelling sadly and sorrowfully on 
the deserted homes and friends remaining behind, and building 
many " castles in the air," our emigrants retii-ed to their 
berths to sleep, perchance to dream, of the loved ones and 0+" the 
absent. This vessel, like all others at that time, bound for the 
land of plenty, was crowded with hardy emigrants. To many 
that night " vvas the last of earth,"— many saw not the morrow's 
sun - that was to rise for them no more. Alas ! when their slum- 
bers were the sweetest, the awful cry of fire ! aroused the sleepers, 
and awoke them to a struggle for life, at that moment the sweet- 
est " boon to mortal given." The vessel was doomed ! Every 
effort was made by the captain and crew to quiet the fears of the 
panic stricken pissengers, in many instances, without effect. 
The strong minded and the healthy, in hours of safety, became 
almost imbecile and helpless, while the weak andsickly became 
suddenly endowed with a strength and presence of mind that 
showed their strength came from a source not human. Some, in 
their panic, to escape death by fire, sought it in the waves that 
laved the vessel's sides. Every boat was soon launched and 
loaded with precious freight— rafts were hastily inade and soon 
crowded with the unfortunates, and then entrusted to the mercy 
of the winds and the waves. On the second day after leaving the 
burning vessel, the boats and rafts were all relieved of their 
precious loads. Then, and not till then, were many weary 
hearts made glad with joy, for their dearly loved ones were saved, 
but, alas ! many wept, and would not be comforted, for their 
dear ones were not. Two children of Mr. and Mrs. Barry were 
numbered with those who perished. 

Five, of the eight children, born to Mr. and Mrs. Barry, are 
still living. Mrs. Barry now resides with her daughter, Mrs. 
John Henegan, corner of High and McArthur streets, where 
she is surrounded with every comfort.

JAMES WARNER MILLER. 

Mr. James Warner Miller, of the Third Ward, was born 
in Windham county, Vermont, near Battleboro', on the 8th day 
of July, 1807. In tlie fall of 1814, he removed with his father, 
mother, and thrise brothers, to what is now Miller township, 
Knox county, Ohio. His father-settled in the woods. At that 



WHITE'S MOUNT VERNON DIRECTORY. WJ 

time only two families resided in the territory now within the 
boundary of the above named townshij). 

The subject of this brief sketch encountered all tlie hardships 
consequent to the clearing? u^j a new farm in a dense forest. At 
tiie age of twenty-two he left his father's farm, and enti-red a 
store in Mount N'ernon as a clerk. On the ISth day of Decem- 
ber, ]S8;5, Mr. INliller was married to 3Iiss Mary (i.," a ilauf>:hter 
of tlie late yiv. (Jilman Bryant, of this city. They have raised 
a family of ten children, all of whom are liviny. 

Asa farmer, as a clerk, as a merchant, Mr. Miller has stood 
])re-eminent as a careful, prudent, and successful man, ant! has, 
by Ills euerofy and fair dealing, accumulated enough of this 
world's goods, to render him independent, and to surround 
himself with all the comforts the decline of life may re(|uire. 

Mr. ^Miller is a shrew business man, and knows how to secure 
custoniers, and, what is still better, knows how to keep them. 
If an article of merchandise, however small and valueless, and 
he has it not in his store, is called for twice, by different custo- 
mers, he immediately orders a small lot, and his customers are 
supi)lied — they nmst'wait— for no otherestablishment in the city 
could furnish the articles wanted. 

Althougii nearly seventy years of age, time,sits lightly on his 
shoulders, and to-day, he has all Ihe appearance of a man in the 
prime of life. 

LV. 
JAMES MARTIN. 

]Mr. James Martin, of Monroe township, is one of our fore- 
handed farmers, and is well known by all our citizens. He is a 
native of Pennsylvania, having been born in Washington 
county, of that State, on the 7th day of February, 1807. He 
came to ^Nlount Vernon, Ohio, June 18, 1818. At that time, Mr. 
31. states, there were no churches in the village, as it was only a 
small i)lace. The first work he performed here, was raising po- 
tatoes on the piece of ground whereon the Methodist Church I 
now stands, on north Mulberry street. Another piece of work 
he often alludes to, was his ploughing down of the old Court 
House, then standing on the north-east quarter of the Public 
Square. 

.Mr. Martin married, on the 12th day of April, 18.32, Miss Sa- 
rah Rigg, formerly of Washington county, Pennsylvania. Miss 
Rigg came to Mount Vernon in the yesir 1830. To them were 
born two children, both of whom have deceased. Mr. Martin, 
his wife and six grand-children, now reside on his beautiful aiul 
fertile farm, on the Coshocton road, a short distance from the 
corporation line.
