of the individual who bought the land in this county originally and in some cases could have been actually living on or near its location. Acreages purchased are listed next.  The exact acreage may differ slightly in actual deeds or in Patent documents.  The Date of purchase is given.  The location as to county and to state of residence is given if shown.  Alphabetical index starts with A-L, but for the purpose of this abstract I will begin with the Ms with three or more mentions:  McBride, McClintock, McKee 10, McLaughlin, McLauw, McVicker, McWilliams, Meridith, Merrill, Merritt, Merry, Miller 8, Milhorne, Mills, Moore 10, Morganridge, Morris 19, Morrison 11, Morstell, Moser, Mount, Myers, Nicholson 5, Noble 5, O'Neil/l, Ogg 5, Pickinpaugh, Powell, Reany, Reed 8, Reeve/s, Rich 8, Richey, Roach, Robinson, Roe, Rossiter, Scott 7, Secrist, Severance, Shackle/r, Smith 17, Spencer, Sprague, Stanbury, Starr, Stewart 8, Sut/ton, Swank, Taylor 8, Thompson 17, Thotla/Thorlo, Thurlo/Thurlow, Tilton, Triplett, Waller, Walsh, Walters, Ward 5, Watson, Webber, West, Wharton, Wiley, Willey, Williams 5, Wilson 10, Windell/Windle, Woods 6 and  and Wybrand.   PRICE: $15

YOGSOH NOBLE-2: SOAKUM  A STORY.  By H. Edmund Danforth, Caldwell, Ohio. Published 1912.  Illustrated by Donald Ross.  222 pages,  5" by 8", hardbound.  This volume is dedicated to the surviving pioneer settlers of Duc Creek Valley.  I do not know, for the book does not say, whether this story is grounded in fact or is just fiction, but this newsletter has been delayed while I read the book.  Looking for a clue as to its origin I found only a story, but what a story, gripping in its intensity, stirring with its twists and turns, fraught with possibilities and the best read I have had for months.  If it is only a work of fiction, it is superb, but it has an authenticity that I imagine indicates the story is based on a story or a legend that took place in a town that is no longer.  PRICE:  $15

YOGSOH NOBLE-05:  NOBLE COUNTY, OHIO WILL BOOK I, INDEX TO WILLS 1852-1861.  Page 177-178 from Gateway to the West.  118 wills from residents of Noble County with the year probated and the page number in Will Book I.  Order directly from the Probate Judge, giving name, year and page number given here in this book for copies.  Ask for the original papers if they still have them.  That is always an option you want to preserve.  Most courthouses kept all their papers, folded loosely, in boxes or other containers.  Many of
the materials were not written down in the books until the 1870s and 1880s.  BONUS: Two deed abstracts from Clark Co, OHIO:  1.) For Abraham Runyon, assignee of Andrew Bumgardner, other names mentioned are:  Thomas Stimpes and wife, Hiram Runyan, Nathaniel Bunnell, Jr. and wife Susannah, Peter L. Runyan and wife Mary, John W.

Ellis and wife Phebe, Robert Kirkpatrick and wife Susan, right, title and interest to land in Clarl Co., OHIO.  All in an archival sheet protector in pronged folder.  $3

YOGSOH PERRY-01:  CORNING, OHIO - OTHER PLACES - OTHER TIMES.  By Wahnita DeLong, 66 pages, Beautifully hardbound.  Whipporwill Publications.  The author says, "The poems in Part I are based on memories from a decade at the turn of the century.  Life was simple, natural, and easy going, at least in a little town like Corning.  It was a good time for children to be growing up.  I am glad I was a child then."  This lady had a little of the imp left in her and her poems are a vivid memory of some of the times the imp showed herself.  Her poems are like snapshots for the mind as she evokes in you what she was feeling at the time.  I am old enough to have memories of what it was like back then.  I have read this book all the way through every time I have had a reason to look at it at all. It is a loving telling of the past, humorous and nostalgic.  It makes me long for the days when I would arise and say, "No plans for today!  I can do anything I want!  Instead of saying, "What needs to be done first today."  She talks of common joys of childhood and I smile as I read it.  It is good to be reminded of a time when it was not necessary to work every minute of every day!  She traveled often and with rare insight into others.  Part II is filled with poems of the places she went, some physically, but some I think, she visited in a book, a picture, a painting, or just in her thoughts.  Part III has moments in time, frozen for you to read.  A rare insight into a talented lady.  You will enjoy it, but don't rush through it.  Savor it!  These poems need thoughtful thinking about, but you will be all the richer for it if you give each one of them the time to work its magic on you.  PRICE: $20

YOGSOH PERRY-02:  CEMETERY INSCRIPTIONS FROM SOMERSET, PERRY COUNTY, OHIO,  Copied by Mrs. John Fedorchak, Eleven pages, single sided, mimeographed, placed in a prong folder.  These inscriptions (pages 1-4) were copied in the Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery in July, 1958.  A stone Tablet in the cemetery indicates that it was the site of an Evangelical Lutheran Church meeting held Sept. 14, 1818.  Although this cemetery is no longer used for burials, it has been kept in good condition.  It is one block from the town square in Somerset.  Burials in this cemetery are typed in alphabetical order by the first letter only.  Surnames with two (,) or more than two (#) burials are listed here: Acker 4, Beckwith, Birkhimer, Brechbill, Brunner 10, Cowen, Darshman, Dashmen 3, Foy, Griffith 2, Gri(m/m) 3, Henkle, Higgins 3, Lutz 4, Moeller 6, Nunnemaker 4, Swineheart 4, Trout 3.
On another trip to Perry County Cemeteries this author and her aunt found and copied another Lutheran and a Catholic cemetery.  She has combined the cemeteries in this copy marking the ones in the Lutheran Cemetery with an "L" and the ones in the Catholic Cemetery with a "C".    I have chosen for this abstract to separate the lists.  We will do the Lutheran Church first: Beckenstos, Binckley, Cole, Defenbaugh, Fulton 3, Lidey, Lutz, McCormick 3, Overmyre 3, Sanderson, Schauer, Snedecker, Sturgeon 6, Swineheart 7 and Zartman 2.  
Now for the Catholic Church:  Burshu(s/w), Cluney, Creighton, Collins, Costigan, DeLong, Donley, Downhour, Finck/Fink 9, Gallagher 3, Gordon, Harper, Hearhol(t)zen, Hodge, Johnson 4, Kennedy 3, McDonald 3, Miller, Musselman, O'Neil, Ryan 4, Slevin, Spurck, Weir and Wiseman 5.  There is a lot of detail in the inscriptions that she copied and there are many surnames that have only one burial by
that name.  PRICE: $7

YOGSOH PIKE-01:  SOUTHERN OHIO TAXPAYERS IN THE 1820S [FOR] SCIOTO, LAWRENCE AND PIKE COUNTIES.  [Note: Book is filed in Scioto County folder.] By Heritage Research, compiled by Marilyn Adams, 1981, 59 8½" by 11" pages, cardstock cover, wrapper-style, stapled.  This index to more than 4,000 taxpayers from these three counties is based on the following tax duplicates.  For Scioto County they used 1823: land-tax list and the 1826-28 both land and chattel lists.  For Lawrence County they used 1822 land-tax list and the 1828 both land and chattel lists.  For Pike County they used the 1823 land-tax list and the 1826 both land and chattel list.  Your surname may appear more than once on a list because the author could not determine if, just because the name was the same that may or may not mean the person is the same.  [The Scioto County duplicates present a special problem in that the original official sometimes wrote Smith A. John for John A. Smith, but he was not always consistent in that either. Determine surname, then please check both A. John and John A. as it was impossible to determine which order was correct.]   There are a lot of names in this book- 25 or more names per column, three columns on a page and 59 pages will give you a good shot at finding out if your ancestor owned any land or chattle (personal property like horses or cattle) anywhere in these three counties.   Sample entries in the book are given with an explanation as to their meaning. 
Surnames with four (,) or more than four first names (#) are listed here: Adams 9, Allison, Anderson 7, Andre 5, Andrews 7, Armstrong 7, Austin, Baccus, Baker 6, Barber 8, Barger, Barn(e)s 5, Barrett, Beauchamp, B(ec/ee)kman 10, Bennett 24, Blank(e/i)nship 9, Bonser 8, Boswell,  Bowen 7, Bower/s 5, Bowman, Boy(n/ing)ton 6, Bradford, Brammer 8, Brewer 6, Briggs 5, Brown 24, Bruce, Brumfield, Bryan 5, Bryant 5, Buck, Bull 5, Bumgarner 7, Burk/e 6, Burner 5, Burris 8, Burt 14, Butcher 5, Campbell 8, Canter 5, Carpenter, Carrol/l/Carrel/l 6, Carter 8, Chaf(f)in 6, Chapman 6, Chenoweth 12, C(e/i)ssna 6, Clark 26, Clay, Clingman 11, Cock(e)rel/l 7, Co(a)l/e 8, Collier 10, Collings, Collins 9.

YOGSOH  PREBLE-02:  PREBLE COUNTY, OHIO WILL ABSTRACTS, BOOKS I & II.  1807-1835.  These will abstracts have been recorded in alphabetical order by the first letter of the surname.   There is no index included.  These appear to be photocopies, no name, no date, one sheet of paper, regular weight, with the title on it.  No back cover.  This might be a proofing copy, or just one the owner has corrected.  Surnames leaving wills are:  Aldick, Aikman, Alexander 2, Aten, Banta 2, Bean, Beard, Bell, Biers, Bishop, Black 2, Blackford, Blansher, Bronson, Brower, Brown 3, Burk,  Burson,  Button, Caldwell, Campbell, Cloyd, Cook, Craig, Davidson, Day 2, Dilman, Divan, Dooley, Early, Eikenberry, Everman 2, Fleming 2, Floyd, Foreman, Frame, Gift, Goodwin 2, Gregg, Hahn, Hall, Hamilton, Hardy, Harford, Harris 2, Hart, Hasty, Hawkins, Heckman, Holderman, Hornaday, Hornbaker, Horner, Hymlick, Ireland 3, Irwin, Jackson, Jenkins, Jones, Kellogg, Kesling, Killough, Kingery, Landis, Lanier, Larsh, Lewellen, Lock, Loop, Magriff, Martin 3, Massie, Mauzy, McCown, McFadden, McGaw, McGuire 2, McMan, McQuiston, McWhinney, Melling, Miller 2, Milligan, Mitchell 2, Neff, Nesbit, Newton 4, Overholts, Ozias 2, Parham, Pattrerson, Paulus, Peach, Porter, Price, Purviance, Randall 2, Richards, Rinehart 2, Roberts, Rookstool, Scott, Sellers, Shewey, Shidler, Shuman, Sidwell, Smith 2, Steel, Stephens, Sutton, Swisher, Swineheart, Syler, Taylor 3, Thatcher, Thompson, Thornberry, Tickle, Torrence, Utt, Van Ausdal, Van Doren, Van Sickle, Van Winkle 2, Vanty, Wantz, Ward 2, Weast, Westerfield, Williamson 2, Woodward, Woolf, Wolverton and Zeller.  Abstracts appear to be thorough.  Lots of names.  There are holes in the paper where the staples have been removed.  I have placed it in a pocket folder to protect it. Typing is too close to the edge to punch it for binding.  These wills go to the end of 1836.  PRICE:  $7           

YOGSOH PREBLE-03:  PREBLE COUNTY, OHIO WILLS, Volume I 1806-1836.  Volume II 1836-1854.  Mrs Don Short and Mrs. Dale Bowers.  Reprint 1995.  Clearfield Company, Vol. I ©1967, Vol. 2 © 1973.  These wills seem to run for a considerable length of time beyond the 1836 limits of the above book.  This book has been shrunk to fit on the 5½" by 8½" paper, the print is very small, and although it is new, it is already faulty in that it is falling apart.  The pages are loose in the center.  All the information is there.  The every name index for Volume I appears after that first section of the book.  The author did everything right and this is an excellent book with lots of data in it.   Book II has a surname index only.  The wills in both of these books appear to be recorded in chronological order.  The price of this book was supposed to be set at $14.  Because it has to be held together with a rubber band, the price is lowered to $10.  PIECE: $10
YOGSOH PREBLE 05:  PREBLE COUNTY, OHIO WILL INDEX BOOKS I & II.  1807-1835.  5 pages, folder. This is a very useful set of photocopies, telling a real genealogist what they need to know if their family names fall within the parameters of the copied material!  Information given is simply the name of the testator who made the will and the year of probate for all names alphabetical from, Aldick, David to Sutton, Benjamin, all that were indexed on this page #41; Next is Preble County Cemetery, Mound Hill in Eaton, Ohio.  Section 6: with burials from Adams, James to Welborn?, Elias page 88;  Page 57 holds the Preble County 1810 Tax List from Banta, Abraham through Worthington, George; Page 58, 59 holds the 1811 tax list from Banta, Abraham through Young, Henry.  If this location fits, it could be worth more than its price of $3!

YOGSOH PREBLE-06: PREBLE COUNTY, OHIO WILL ABSTRACTS, 1836-1854, VOLUME II, WILL BOOK II, BOOK C.   Compiled by Anita Short and Ruth Bowers.  34 pages plus the surname index.  Placed in a stiff cover AccoPress Binder.  The number shown behind the surname is the number of pages in this book of abstracts on which that surname appears.  Surnames with wills filed on 3 (,) or more than three pages (#) are:  Acton 4, Alexander, Baker, Banta 4, Barnhart, Beal(l), Benjamin, Bolens, Brower 4, Brown 21, Brubaker 4, Buck(s), Caldwell 4, Campbell 12, Christman 5, Clark 5, Cook 5, Crampton, Cunningham 7, Davisson, Dicks, Douglas, Duffield, Eidson 4, Elliott 5, Fall, Ferris, Fisher 6, Foos(e),Foster, Fowler, Gilmore 8, Goodwin 6, Gordon, Gray 9, Haines 5, Holderman, Hall, Hamilton 4, Hapner, Harris 4, Harshman 4, Hart 5, Hasty, Hawkins 8, Hendricks, Holderman, Hornaday 5, Huffman 5, Hunt, Ireland 5, Jackson, Jones 8, Karn(s) 4, Kirkpatrick, Lane 4, Lock, McDill 5, McDonald, McMitt 5, McWhinney 7, Mack 4, Maddock , Madill 4, Magaw 6, Marsh, Marshall 5, Martin 4, Mikesell, Miller 9, Mitchell 8, Monfort 4, Moore, Morrow 5, Newton, Ozias, Paddock, Paxton, Pinkerton 7, Pottenger, Potterf, Price, Purviance 5, Quinn 6, Ramsey 5, Reddick, Treed 5, Rice, Rinehart, Saylor, Scouller, Shidler, Sloan 5, Smith 10, Steel(e), Stephens 16, Stover 5, Stubbs 10, Swain 8, Swisher 4, Taylor 9, Thompson, Walker 5, Watt, Wehrl(e)y, Weist, Wiley, Williams 10, Wright 10, and Young 6.  PRICE $15

FFOH RICHLAND-02:  D158:  FROM THE ANNALS OF RICHLAND COUNTY, OHIO.  Compiled and Edited by Mary Jane Armstrong Henney, ©1996.  Published by the Richland County Genealogical Society.  223 pages 8" by 11", hardbound.  Beautiful Book.  The Table of Contents of this book is three pages long, divided into sections titled [Tales of ] EARLY RICHLAND COUNTY, THE PIONEERS, RICHLAND COUNTY, MANSFIELD, THE CIVIL WAR and CITIZEN VIGNETTES.  For a lover of history and reminiscences of days gone by, and especially for those with ancestors who lived in this county this book is a GOLD MINE of tales of long ago.  The story of the man who captured the bear alive is worth the price of the book by itself!    The index includes the following surnames with three or more entries [NOTE:  Since many of these tales are of an historical nature rather than genealogical, many people are mentioned by name only a very few times.] Adams, Andrews, Appleseed, [Johnny], Armstrong, Au, Baker, Bartley, Baughman, Bell, Bentley, Bigelow, Black, Boals, Bowman, Boyce, Bricker, Brinkerhoff, Brown, Bryan, Burns, Bushnell, Cairns, Cantwell, Carpenter, Carrothers, Chandler, Chew, Clark, Clay, Coffinberry, Condon, Cook, Copus, Coulter, Coyler/Collier, Craig, Crail, Crawford, Culler, Cummins, Cunningham, Cuppy, Curtis, Darling, Davis, Day, Dickey, Dickson, Dirlam, Douglas, Edgington, Ewing, Ferguson, Finney, Fireoved, Fleming, Ford, Fry, Gass, Gilkison, Grant, Grimes, Hagerman, Harrison, Hedges, Henderson, Hill, Holmes, Jenner, Jones, Journeycake, Kendall, King, Kohler, Lake, Larwill, Lee, Leedy, Lewis, Leyman, Lincoln, Love, McBride, McCluer, McClure, McComb, McCoy, McCullough, McElroy, McFall, McIlvain, Mack, McLaughlin, Martin, Matson, Maxwell, May, Meily, Miller, Moore, Morrow, Myers, Nail, Needham, Newman, Page, Palmer, Parker, Patterson, Peterson, Pipe, Pittenger, Pugh, Purdy, Quigley, Reed, Rice, Roop, Rowland, Ruffner, Seymour, Sherman, Smith, Snyder, Stevens, Stewart, Strong, Sturges, Styer, Swigart, Taylor, Teegarden, Tidball, Todd, Ward, Watson, Weldon, Welty, Wiler, Williams, Wilson, Winters, Wise, Wolf, Woodhouse, Wright, Young, Zimmer and  Zimmerman.  Many of the tales in the above book are inspiring, interesting, or thought provoking, but my favorite was this one:  It was a clipping from a 1926 newspaper, no further date or information known.  Among the goldfish which played in the Vasbinder fountain in Central Park during the summer months, there were two large carp that someone had stealthily put in with them.  When the fish were removed in the fall to their winter home at the water works, the carp were taken along.  For the first few days everything went along in the usual smooth manner.  One of the firemen at the plant, however, was the owner of a beautiful cat, name unknown, The cat was the idol of the entire water works force and when the fish came, Mr. Cat was wont to sit on the ladder over the fish tank and watch the fish play, swiping at them with one furry paw.  There was really no harm in the diversion, but it happened that one of the carp had developed a bitter hatred for the feline spectator and, in the presence of witnesses, Mr. Carp leaped from the water and slapped Mr. Cat full in the face with his tail.  The blow was so violent that the cat's neck was broken.  Everyone at the water works mourned for the cat and made preparations to try the carp on a first-degree murder charge.
Or maybe this true story will move you:  from the pages of the Ohio Register, February 14, 1815:  Married - Mr. "Seely Simkins, age 88 to Mrs. Elizabeth Ask, age 28.  "It's love's flame that's kindled by desire.  An 'old sticks' surely best, because it's drier."  Oh, on second thought, maybe not, this is the second one!  Ohio Register - Apr 18, 1815.  Died, Seely Simpkins, age 88.  Married 2 mos., 3 wks."  [May we assume he died a happy man?]
YOGSOH RICHLAND-03:  MARLOWPATTERSONCEMETERY, SPRINGFIELDTOWNSHIP, RICHLAND COUNTY, OHIO.  By theOhio Genealogical Society.  July 23, 1960.  James Marlow, Sr. settled on his farm which includes the cemetery in 1832.  Thomas Marlow, his son died January 5, 1845, and was buried in the MansfieldCemetery. 
Later that cemetery was moved and all the bodies were taken up.  Mr. Marlow had the body of his small son moved and buried in the woods on his farm, thinking to move him later to a final resting place.  Before that could be done, some children of a neighbor died of a contagious disease, and were also buried in the woods on a corner of the farm close to the grave of Thomas.  In 1874 neighbors in the vicinity formed the MarlowCemetery Aassociation.  The articles were signed by 4 Marlow men, 4 Patterson men, 2 Campbells, a Sweney, a Day, Rev. Cairns, a Scott and a Loermer.  The ground was plotted into 46 lots each 10 feet by 30 feet in size.  In the early days no burial permits or death certificates were issued or required.  The records now in existence are those kept and preserved by Ira Marlow and his daughters.  There are eight, and possibly twelve, graves that are unmarked and unrecorded.  An excellent plot map is included in this book.  Eleven  8½" by 11", pages are printed on cardstock, with cardstock covers, stapled.  This is an excellent, detailed reading of this cemetery with every detail that could be found in measurement and placing of the stones and detailed transcriptions and condition reports on the status of the stones.  The index is at the front of the book and includes: Beer 3, Campbell 2, Carroll 1, Courtney 6, Curtiss 1, Hartupee 3, Hoover 1, Larimer 2, Marlow 19, Mathews 2, Maxwell 5, McBride 1, McCaskey 1, McClure 1, McDonald 2, Moore 4, Murphy 6, Patterson 10, Reader 1, Roethlisberger 4, Shortess 5, Smith 3, Stimens 1, Sunnucks 3 and Sweeney 2.  The last page has come loose from the staples so I have placed this in a pocket folder for safety purposes.  PRICE: $10
