*NEW LISTINGS: YOGSOH-BUT-004:  BUTLER COUNTY, OHIO, MARRIAGES, 1807-1809.  No author is identified with these pages which were photocopied from something else.  Since Gateway to the West is mentioned as a previous source of an article on these marriages from 1803-1806, I am making only a reasonable guess that the author is Anita Short, who with her mother produced an inordinate and prodigious body of work on Ohio Records in a periodical named “Gateway to the West.” [NOTE: I am happy to say I knew Anita well, have visited with her at her home and at conferences and have her library, which I acquired when she decided to sell it, still as the core of my Ohio collection.  This excerpt is page 71 through 75 of the periodical and contains over 225 marriages. With over 225 x 2 = 450 men and women, not in alphabetical order, and with no bride’s index,  I didn’t have time or space to do that index!  450 surnames is just too many to do here.    Used copy, and only 1 is available.  PRICE: $4.00  


*NEW LISTINGS: .  YOGSOH-BUTLER-05:  BUTLER COUNTY: THEN AND NOW:  A BICENTENNIAL COLLECTION OF HISTORIC SCENES.  By Thomas Huff.  This unusual book is stunning, each page is suitable for framing and there are twenty-five to choose from.  Here’s the story!  This sketch artist roamed the streets of the towns and the roads, the highways and the by-ways for the most memorable and historic sites in Butler County.  He used pen and ink to sketch these great buildings, the architecture of Butler County from the Opera House to the churches, the bridges, the houses, the schools, the courthouse, Paramount Theatre, the railway station, the firehouse and more are captured and frozen in a moment of time by this artist’s skill with his pen and ink sketches.  They spared no expense in treating these beautiful sketches properly.  All of these were printed on buckeye antique cover stock in 11” by 17” size, two up, and folded.  The paper stock is perfect and the sketches could be easily separated for framing.  The only flaw is on the cover where a pen has filled in two blocks about 3/8 ” long by “ high located in the upper front cover.  If I had a lawyer’s office in Hamilton, Ohio, (county seat), I would have them framed and hung on the walls.  There is information about each one of the subject structures, identifying it, in type. so you can compare it to the original if it still stands.  Lovely sketches, outstanding work!  Used copy, and only 1 is available $15.00
