*NEW LISTINGS:  YOGSOH-ATHENS-04:  THE HISTORY OF COOLVILLE, OHIO 1818 – 1968.  By Agnes C. Hill, Researcher and Historian, Jane Whitman, typist, artist and coordinator.  Third Printing done in 1975.  Some pages in the original that were blank, but were numbered have been omitted from this book to conserve paper.  Because of this practice, it appears that some pages have been left out, however, all the text from the original 190+ pages is in this book.  Cardstock covers, folder with clasps has done a good job of holding this book and protecting the inside pages.  The cover itself is bent because it is bigger than the 8 “ by 11 pages inside.  The spine is good and tight.  Book itself is in good condition, but cardstock cover is bent on the edges.  Photocopies of pictures and articles from the newspapers are a nice touch and are very interesting.  21 separate articles fill this book, including, but not limited to:  Troy Township, Cooley Family Genealogy, Coolville, Map of 1818 and 1875, Troy Twp. Officers, 1837-1883, By-Laws, Coolville Seminary, Civil War Times 1861-1865, Soldiers in the Civil War, 1875 Business Directory, Stories and Pictures of by-gone days, Churches and Societies, Obituaries (indexed), and Businesses.  Obituaries are printed here and indexed.  Surnames are Caplinger, Chevalier, Dunfee, English, Gillian (2), Goebel, Kincade (2), Linton, Meek, Mollohan, Morris, Nestor, O’Neal, Parrish, Pierce, Reed, Richardson (3), Runion, Tilton, Wallace and White.  Used copy, and only 1 is available PRICE: $30.00
