     Dresden Winfield Huston Howard From Waggoner [1888:690-92]: Dresden W. H. Howard was born in Yates County, New York, November 3, 1817. He was a son of Edward, his grandfather being Thomas Howard. May 22, 1821, the grandfather, with his sons Edward, Robert A. and Richard, their wives and two children (Dresden and a cousin named Sidney), and a daughter of Sidney H. Nelson, left their pleasant homes on the banks of Seneca Lake, near Geneva, for the west. The grandfather rode on horseback, the families and small supplies of clothing and household goods being loaded into two two-horse covered wagons. In due time, over roads almost impassable, the party reached the then Village of Buffalo. Here, the grandfather, with the women and children, embarked on board a 30-ton Schooner (name not remembered), commanded by Captain Anson Reed, for a long and perilous voyage to Fort Meigs, 14 miles above the mouth of the Maumee River. This destination was reached at dusk, June 17th, after a trip of 26 days, where they were cordially welcomed by the few white settlers at "Orleans," the little hamlet under the Fort. Dresden's recollection of the scene that met his view on entering the mouth of the River, about 10 o'clock A.M., is yet very clear to him. The dark color of the water of the River was in strong contrast with that of the clear water of the Lake. The scene of chief interest as they slowly passed up the stream, consisted of the white tents of Indians camped on the West bank, from the house of Major Stickney (near Bush Street), to the mouth of Swan Creek - the Indians being there on business with Major Stickney, then Indian Agent for the Government. They were actively engaged in racing and other sports peculiar to Indians: but upon discovering the little Vessel, they gave one wild (to the passengers, unearthly) yell, and ran down the bank, to get as near as possible to the craft. While the boy was deeply interested in the scene, the women were crouched in deadly fear on the deck at such first view of the locality which was to be their home. The Vessel made slow progress up the River, with nothing to be seen but the primeval forest which lined its banks, and a deer and her fawn which had sought protection in the water from swarms of mosquitoes, or from some hunger wolf. In due time, the end of the journey was reached. The teams were many days behind the arrival of the Vessel, they having in bad roads - especially through the "Black Swamp" - more to overcome than the calms and adverse winds of the Lake. The real destination of the party was Tecumseh, or An-au-ba (now known as Ann Arbor), Michigan; but the persuasions of the Hollisters, Spaffords, Forsyths, General Hunt and other residents induced them to stop, when they soon were quartered in little cabins of bark-covered walls. Some cleared land was rented, and a small crop of corn, potatoes, pumpkins, squashes, etc., soon planted. With "dog-days" came ague and fever, attended by want and privation known to none but the pioneer. Several times the entire family was prostrated, with no one able to attend upon the sick. The frosts of October were patiently awaited as the only source of relief to sufferers; which season was made the more grateful for the abundant supplies of fish and corn-"pone," which it brought. The grandfather had little means with which to start in the new home. He first entered 160 acres of Government lands, where now is the Village of Woodville, Sandusky County; but the Black Swamp proved too much for him, and he abandoned his purchase, subsequently selling it to Amos E. Wood, the founder of Woodville. In 1822, lands were purchased at Grand Rapids, Wood County, when cabins were built for Edward, Robert A. and Richard Howard; and in the Spring of 1823 they cut a road from the Indian Mission, eight miles below, through a dense wilderness to the Grand Rapids of Maumee. And founded a settlement immediately opposite the Ottawa Indian Village of Kin-jo-i-no and Reservation of 12 miles square, at the head of the Rapids.
All of the families, with the grandfather, lived upon their original purchases, cleared away the forests, and made for themselves comfortable homes (save Robert A., who sold his place in 1836, and moved to what now is Fulton County, where he died), and in due time were "gathered to their fathers," their bodies resting on the banks of the Maumee within hearing of the never-ceasing murmur of the Rapids.
Edward Howard (the father of Dresden) was a Soldier in the War of 1812-15, as was Thomas in the Revolutionary War. The former was at the battles of Lundy's Lane and Fort Erie. He was never robust after the War, and died in 1841. The mother (Nancy Haight Howard) survived him until 1881, dying at the age of 84 years, and being buried beside her husband. The children were Dresden; one brother, James Monroe, born in Yates County, New York; and one sister (Anjinette), born in Wood County. James died in 1841; and the sister is the wife of Hon. George Laskey, of Toledo. Coming here in childhood, with Indian boys for playmates, Dresden learned the languages of the several tribes in the Valley, and became more or less attached to Indian life. His inclinations early turned toward Indian trade and the hunter's life. The fur trade with the tribes was then a lucrative business, and his readiness with their dialects made his services in demand by traders, who paid well for them. With others, he was employed by Government Agents in collecting the wandering bands for removal to their new homes beyond the Mississippi in 1832, and again in 1838. In 1832 he aided the removal, when they were transported across the country by wagons and on the backs of their ponies. For a boy, the trip was attractive. Scarcely any settlement was passed for the whole distance. The Indians were located on the banks of the Osage River (now in Kansas), where is the Town of Ottawa, name for the tribe. In 1840, Mr. Howard was employed by W. G. and Geo. W. Ewing, fur traders at Fort Wayne, Indiana, to take a stock of Indian goods up the Missouri River, and open trade with the Omahas, Missouries, lower Sioux, Pottawatomies and other tribes inhabiting the Valley and tributaries of that stream. His father and brother dying in 1841, made it necessary for him to return and care for an invalid mother and his sister, and accept the more quiet life of farming and civilization, for which his previous experience had done little toward fitting him. His school days (from seven to 10 years) were entirely spent at the "Old Indian Mission," 10 miles above Fort Meigs, in a School of 100 Indian children - he being the only White pupil, save a few Indian and French half-breed boys and girls. That School was organized by the Home Missionary Society of New England, and was closed upon the removal of the Indians in 1838.
The tribes inhabiting the Valley of the Maumee, and also that of the Wabash and their tributaries, at the time of Mr. Howard's earliest recollections (and for many years before), were the Ottawas, Pottawatomies, Miamis, We-aws, Piankishaws, Shawnees and Delawares, with a few of the Ochibewas and Muncies. The principal Chiefs of the Ottawas were Na-wash, O-to-saw, Char-lo, Oeque-nox-ie, Kin-jo-a-no, Ot-to-kee, Wa-se-on, Wa-se-on-i-quet, and others/. Of the Pottawatomies were Waw-bon-see, Baw-beece, Me-te-ah, Win-a-meg; of the Miamis, La Fountain and Richard-ville, with many others, whose names are not recalled; of Shawnees, were Joseph and William Parks, whose Reservation was at Wa-pa-kon-neta. The Walkers (half-breeds) were principal men among the Wyandotts at Upper Sandusky. Turkey Foot (Mis-sis-sa-inzit), was a noted Ottawa Chief, as was O-to-saw. Little Turtle (Mis-she-kenee) perhaps was the most noted, as he was the most intelligent Chief of the Miamis, who, Mr. Howard things, lies buried near Fort Wayne, Indiana. Turkey Foot was buried near the rock from which he harangued his Braves when he fell with a bullet from one of Wayne's soldiers, August 20, 1794. Mr. Howard's memory is stored with facts and associations connected with the aboriginal tribes with whom he was so long intimate. When asked by Governor Noyes, of Ohio, why he always spoke with such special kindness of the Indians, he replied, "They have always, in childhood and in manhood, treated me with kindness, and I could not be ungrateful for their uniform generosity. Treat an Indian justly, and you will secure his friendship for life. Treat him illy, and you have his enmity for life." Mr. Howard's present residence is on the site of the old Indian Village of Winameg, Fulton County, where the former residents so long enjoyed savage life, and where so many of them found their last resting place, which is now carefully protected. The Red Man has taken his last drink from the shaded spring at the foot of the hill, his last look upon the landscape so long his pride, and now sleeps nearer the setting Sun. In the Spring of 1827-28, Mr. Howard - then a boy of 10 years - first visited that locality, and there ate his first bowl of hominy and roast venison, and took his first drink from the pure waters of the spring. The Indians had just returned from their Winter hunting-grounds in the pine and sugar-maple forest of the then wild Territory, now the fertile and rich State of Michigan, where they had enjoyed a successful hunt; bringing in a bountiful supply of Maple sugar (of which they were fond). They were having their annual dance or worship of the Great Spirit (Chi Manitoo), returning thanks for success in the hunt, and asking for a prosperous season to come. For the Summer, the women were to plant and how, while the men, beside lounging about, were to look for an occasional deer. Corn, beans and pumpkins were still planted there; but not by the faithful, patient squaws of former days.
Mr. Howard, with all his early attachment for the primitive ways of the Indians, has not been backward in promoting the methods and means of Christian civilization. For forty years past he has been identified, to greater or less extent with the agricultural, the financial, the political, and the social movements of the age, seeking faithfully to meet his full duty in these several relations of life. In promoting the construction of good roads, elevating the farming interests, and the establishment of sound morals and general education, he has been active. In 1870 he represented the Tenth District on the State Board of Equalization. Elected to the State Senate in 1871 from the Thirty-Third District, he served in that body for two years. In 1860 he was Presidential Elector, casting the vote of the Fifth Congressional District for Abraham Lincoln. Of all his record in connection with elections, that which gives him his chief pride, was made in the fight for the exclusion of the sale of intoxicating liquors at Wauseon, in April, 1887. He was appointed by Governor Foraker, April 1, 1887, a Trustee of the Toledo Asylum for the Insane, constructed for the State, near Toledo. Mr. Howard was married in 1843 with Mary b. Copeland. There were born to them two children - Osceola E. M., Civil Engineer, of San Diego, California; and M. Agnes, now residing with her parents at Wauseon, Ohio.1

     James "Pike" Monroe Howard was a witness to the From Waggoner [1888:690-92]: Dresden W. H. Howard was born in Yates County, New York, November 3, 1817. He was a son of Edward, his grandfather being Thomas Howard. May 22, 1821, the grandfather, with his sons Edward, Robert A. and Richard, their wives and two children (Dresden and a cousin named Sidney), and a daughter of Sidney H. Nelson, left their pleasant homes on the banks of Seneca Lake, near Geneva, for the west. The grandfather rode on horseback, the families and small supplies of clothing and household goods being loaded into two two-horse covered wagons. In due time, over roads almost impassable, the party reached the then Village of Buffalo. Here, the grandfather, with the women and children, embarked on board a 30-ton Schooner (name not remembered), commanded by Captain Anson Reed, for a long and perilous voyage to Fort Meigs, 14 miles above the mouth of the Maumee River. This destination was reached at dusk, June 17th, after a trip of 26 days, where they were cordially welcomed by the few white settlers at "Orleans," the little hamlet under the Fort. Dresden's recollection of the scene that met his view on entering the mouth of the River, about 10 o'clock A.M., is yet very clear to him. The dark color of the water of the River was in strong contrast with that of the clear water of the Lake. The scene of chief interest as they slowly passed up the stream, consisted of the white tents of Indians camped on the West bank, from the house of Major Stickney (near Bush Street), to the mouth of Swan Creek - the Indians being there on business with Major Stickney, then Indian Agent for the Government. They were actively engaged in racing and other sports peculiar to Indians: but upon discovering the little Vessel, they gave one wild (to the passengers, unearthly) yell, and ran down the bank, to get as near as possible to the craft. While the boy was deeply interested in the scene, the women were crouched in deadly fear on the deck at such first view of the locality which was to be their home. The Vessel made slow progress up the River, with nothing to be seen but the primeval forest which lined its banks, and a deer and her fawn which had sought protection in the water from swarms of mosquitoes, or from some hunger wolf. In due time, the end of the journey was reached. The teams were many days behind the arrival of the Vessel, they having in bad roads - especially through the "Black Swamp" - more to overcome than the calms and adverse winds of the Lake. The real destination of the party was Tecumseh, or An-au-ba (now known as Ann Arbor), Michigan; but the persuasions of the Hollisters, Spaffords, Forsyths, General Hunt and other residents induced them to stop, when they soon were quartered in little cabins of bark-covered walls. Some cleared land was rented, and a small crop of corn, potatoes, pumpkins, squashes, etc., soon planted. With "dog-days" came ague and fever, attended by want and privation known to none but the pioneer. Several times the entire family was prostrated, with no one able to attend upon the sick. The frosts of October were patiently awaited as the only source of relief to sufferers; which season was made the more grateful for the abundant supplies of fish and corn-"pone," which it brought. The grandfather had little means with which to start in the new home. He first entered 160 acres of Government lands, where now is the Village of Woodville, Sandusky County; but the Black Swamp proved too much for him, and he abandoned his purchase, subsequently selling it to Amos E. Wood, the founder of Woodville. In 1822, lands were purchased at Grand Rapids, Wood County, when cabins were built for Edward, Robert A. and Richard Howard; and in the Spring of 1823 they cut a road from the Indian Mission, eight miles below, through a dense wilderness to the Grand Rapids of Maumee. And founded a settlement immediately opposite the Ottawa Indian Village of Kin-jo-i-no and Reservation of 12 miles square, at the head of the Rapids.
All of the families, with the grandfather, lived upon their original purchases, cleared away the forests, and made for themselves comfortable homes (save Robert A., who sold his place in 1836, and moved to what now is Fulton County, where he died), and in due time were "gathered to their fathers," their bodies resting on the banks of the Maumee within hearing of the never-ceasing murmur of the Rapids.
Edward Howard (the father of Dresden) was a Soldier in the War of 1812-15, as was Thomas in the Revolutionary War. The former was at the battles of Lundy's Lane and Fort Erie. He was never robust after the War, and died in 1841. The mother (Nancy Haight Howard) survived him until 1881, dying at the age of 84 years, and being buried beside her husband. The children were Dresden; one brother, James Monroe, born in Yates County, New York; and one sister (Anjinette), born in Wood County. James died in 1841; and the sister is the wife of Hon. George Laskey, of Toledo. Coming here in childhood, with Indian boys for playmates, Dresden learned the languages of the several tribes in the Valley, and became more or less attached to Indian life. His inclinations early turned toward Indian trade and the hunter's life. The fur trade with the tribes was then a lucrative business, and his readiness with their dialects made his services in demand by traders, who paid well for them. With others, he was employed by Government Agents in collecting the wandering bands for removal to their new homes beyond the Mississippi in 1832, and again in 1838. In 1832 he aided the removal, when they were transported across the country by wagons and on the backs of their ponies. For a boy, the trip was attractive. Scarcely any settlement was passed for the whole distance. The Indians were located on the banks of the Osage River (now in Kansas), where is the Town of Ottawa, name for the tribe. In 1840, Mr. Howard was employed by W. G. and Geo. W. Ewing, fur traders at Fort Wayne, Indiana, to take a stock of Indian goods up the Missouri River, and open trade with the Omahas, Missouries, lower Sioux, Pottawatomies and other tribes inhabiting the Valley and tributaries of that stream. His father and brother dying in 1841, made it necessary for him to return and care for an invalid mother and his sister, and accept the more quiet life of farming and civilization, for which his previous experience had done little toward fitting him. His school days (from seven to 10 years) were entirely spent at the "Old Indian Mission," 10 miles above Fort Meigs, in a School of 100 Indian children - he being the only White pupil, save a few Indian and French half-breed boys and girls. That School was organized by the Home Missionary Society of New England, and was closed upon the removal of the Indians in 1838.
The tribes inhabiting the Valley of the Maumee, and also that of the Wabash and their tributaries, at the time of Mr. Howard's earliest recollections (and for many years before), were the Ottawas, Pottawatomies, Miamis, We-aws, Piankishaws, Shawnees and Delawares, with a few of the Ochibewas and Muncies. The principal Chiefs of the Ottawas were Na-wash, O-to-saw, Char-lo, Oeque-nox-ie, Kin-jo-a-no, Ot-to-kee, Wa-se-on, Wa-se-on-i-quet, and others/. Of the Pottawatomies were Waw-bon-see, Baw-beece, Me-te-ah, Win-a-meg; of the Miamis, La Fountain and Richard-ville, with many others, whose names are not recalled; of Shawnees, were Joseph and William Parks, whose Reservation was at Wa-pa-kon-neta. The Walkers (half-breeds) were principal men among the Wyandotts at Upper Sandusky. Turkey Foot (Mis-sis-sa-inzit), was a noted Ottawa Chief, as was O-to-saw. Little Turtle (Mis-she-kenee) perhaps was the most noted, as he was the most intelligent Chief of the Miamis, who, Mr. Howard things, lies buried near Fort Wayne, Indiana. Turkey Foot was buried near the rock from which he harangued his Braves when he fell with a bullet from one of Wayne's soldiers, August 20, 1794. Mr. Howard's memory is stored with facts and associations connected with the aboriginal tribes with whom he was so long intimate. When asked by Governor Noyes, of Ohio, why he always spoke with such special kindness of the Indians, he replied, "They have always, in childhood and in manhood, treated me with kindness, and I could not be ungrateful for their uniform generosity. Treat an Indian justly, and you will secure his friendship for life. Treat him illy, and you have his enmity for life." Mr. Howard's present residence is on the site of the old Indian Village of Winameg, Fulton County, where the former residents so long enjoyed savage life, and where so many of them found their last resting place, which is now carefully protected. The Red Man has taken his last drink from the shaded spring at the foot of the hill, his last look upon the landscape so long his pride, and now sleeps nearer the setting Sun. In the Spring of 1827-28, Mr. Howard - then a boy of 10 years - first visited that locality, and there ate his first bowl of hominy and roast venison, and took his first drink from the pure waters of the spring. The Indians had just returned from their Winter hunting-grounds in the pine and sugar-maple forest of the then wild Territory, now the fertile and rich State of Michigan, where they had enjoyed a successful hunt; bringing in a bountiful supply of Maple sugar (of which they were fond). They were having their annual dance or worship of the Great Spirit (Chi Manitoo), returning thanks for success in the hunt, and asking for a prosperous season to come. For the Summer, the women were to plant and how, while the men, beside lounging about, were to look for an occasional deer. Corn, beans and pumpkins were still planted there; but not by the faithful, patient squaws of former days.
Mr. Howard, with all his early attachment for the primitive ways of the Indians, has not been backward in promoting the methods and means of Christian civilization. For forty years past he has been identified, to greater or less extent with the agricultural, the financial, the political, and the social movements of the age, seeking faithfully to meet his full duty in these several relations of life. In promoting the construction of good roads, elevating the farming interests, and the establishment of sound morals and general education, he has been active. In 1870 he represented the Tenth District on the State Board of Equalization. Elected to the State Senate in 1871 from the Thirty-Third District, he served in that body for two years. In 1860 he was Presidential Elector, casting the vote of the Fifth Congressional District for Abraham Lincoln. Of all his record in connection with elections, that which gives him his chief pride, was made in the fight for the exclusion of the sale of intoxicating liquors at Wauseon, in April, 1887. He was appointed by Governor Foraker, April 1, 1887, a Trustee of the Toledo Asylum for the Insane, constructed for the State, near Toledo. Mr. Howard was married in 1843 with Mary b. Copeland. There were born to them two children - Osceola E. M., Civil Engineer, of San Diego, California; and M. Agnes, now residing with her parents at Wauseon, Ohio. with Dresden Winfield Huston Howard.7 James "Pike" Monroe Howard was also known as Pike Monroe Howard.3

     Ann Janette Howard was a witness to the From Waggoner [1888:690-92]: Dresden W. H. Howard was born in Yates County, New York, November 3, 1817. He was a son of Edward, his grandfather being Thomas Howard. May 22, 1821, the grandfather, with his sons Edward, Robert A. and Richard, their wives and two children (Dresden and a cousin named Sidney), and a daughter of Sidney H. Nelson, left their pleasant homes on the banks of Seneca Lake, near Geneva, for the west. The grandfather rode on horseback, the families and small supplies of clothing and household goods being loaded into two two-horse covered wagons. In due time, over roads almost impassable, the party reached the then Village of Buffalo. Here, the grandfather, with the women and children, embarked on board a 30-ton Schooner (name not remembered), commanded by Captain Anson Reed, for a long and perilous voyage to Fort Meigs, 14 miles above the mouth of the Maumee River. This destination was reached at dusk, June 17th, after a trip of 26 days, where they were cordially welcomed by the few white settlers at "Orleans," the little hamlet under the Fort. Dresden's recollection of the scene that met his view on entering the mouth of the River, about 10 o'clock A.M., is yet very clear to him. The dark color of the water of the River was in strong contrast with that of the clear water of the Lake. The scene of chief interest as they slowly passed up the stream, consisted of the white tents of Indians camped on the West bank, from the house of Major Stickney (near Bush Street), to the mouth of Swan Creek - the Indians being there on business with Major Stickney, then Indian Agent for the Government. They were actively engaged in racing and other sports peculiar to Indians: but upon discovering the little Vessel, they gave one wild (to the passengers, unearthly) yell, and ran down the bank, to get as near as possible to the craft. While the boy was deeply interested in the scene, the women were crouched in deadly fear on the deck at such first view of the locality which was to be their home. The Vessel made slow progress up the River, with nothing to be seen but the primeval forest which lined its banks, and a deer and her fawn which had sought protection in the water from swarms of mosquitoes, or from some hunger wolf. In due time, the end of the journey was reached. The teams were many days behind the arrival of the Vessel, they having in bad roads - especially through the "Black Swamp" - more to overcome than the calms and adverse winds of the Lake. The real destination of the party was Tecumseh, or An-au-ba (now known as Ann Arbor), Michigan; but the persuasions of the Hollisters, Spaffords, Forsyths, General Hunt and other residents induced them to stop, when they soon were quartered in little cabins of bark-covered walls. Some cleared land was rented, and a small crop of corn, potatoes, pumpkins, squashes, etc., soon planted. With "dog-days" came ague and fever, attended by want and privation known to none but the pioneer. Several times the entire family was prostrated, with no one able to attend upon the sick. The frosts of October were patiently awaited as the only source of relief to sufferers; which season was made the more grateful for the abundant supplies of fish and corn-"pone," which it brought. The grandfather had little means with which to start in the new home. He first entered 160 acres of Government lands, where now is the Village of Woodville, Sandusky County; but the Black Swamp proved too much for him, and he abandoned his purchase, subsequently selling it to Amos E. Wood, the founder of Woodville. In 1822, lands were purchased at Grand Rapids, Wood County, when cabins were built for Edward, Robert A. and Richard Howard; and in the Spring of 1823 they cut a road from the Indian Mission, eight miles below, through a dense wilderness to the Grand Rapids of Maumee. And founded a settlement immediately opposite the Ottawa Indian Village of Kin-jo-i-no and Reservation of 12 miles square, at the head of the Rapids.
All of the families, with the grandfather, lived upon their original purchases, cleared away the forests, and made for themselves comfortable homes (save Robert A., who sold his place in 1836, and moved to what now is Fulton County, where he died), and in due time were "gathered to their fathers," their bodies resting on the banks of the Maumee within hearing of the never-ceasing murmur of the Rapids.
Edward Howard (the father of Dresden) was a Soldier in the War of 1812-15, as was Thomas in the Revolutionary War. The former was at the battles of Lundy's Lane and Fort Erie. He was never robust after the War, and died in 1841. The mother (Nancy Haight Howard) survived him until 1881, dying at the age of 84 years, and being buried beside her husband. The children were Dresden; one brother, James Monroe, born in Yates County, New York; and one sister (Anjinette), born in Wood County. James died in 1841; and the sister is the wife of Hon. George Laskey, of Toledo. Coming here in childhood, with Indian boys for playmates, Dresden learned the languages of the several tribes in the Valley, and became more or less attached to Indian life. His inclinations early turned toward Indian trade and the hunter's life. The fur trade with the tribes was then a lucrative business, and his readiness with their dialects made his services in demand by traders, who paid well for them. With others, he was employed by Government Agents in collecting the wandering bands for removal to their new homes beyond the Mississippi in 1832, and again in 1838. In 1832 he aided the removal, when they were transported across the country by wagons and on the backs of their ponies. For a boy, the trip was attractive. Scarcely any settlement was passed for the whole distance. The Indians were located on the banks of the Osage River (now in Kansas), where is the Town of Ottawa, name for the tribe. In 1840, Mr. Howard was employed by W. G. and Geo. W. Ewing, fur traders at Fort Wayne, Indiana, to take a stock of Indian goods up the Missouri River, and open trade with the Omahas, Missouries, lower Sioux, Pottawatomies and other tribes inhabiting the Valley and tributaries of that stream. His father and brother dying in 1841, made it necessary for him to return and care for an invalid mother and his sister, and accept the more quiet life of farming and civilization, for which his previous experience had done little toward fitting him. His school days (from seven to 10 years) were entirely spent at the "Old Indian Mission," 10 miles above Fort Meigs, in a School of 100 Indian children - he being the only White pupil, save a few Indian and French half-breed boys and girls. That School was organized by the Home Missionary Society of New England, and was closed upon the removal of the Indians in 1838.
The tribes inhabiting the Valley of the Maumee, and also that of the Wabash and their tributaries, at the time of Mr. Howard's earliest recollections (and for many years before), were the Ottawas, Pottawatomies, Miamis, We-aws, Piankishaws, Shawnees and Delawares, with a few of the Ochibewas and Muncies. The principal Chiefs of the Ottawas were Na-wash, O-to-saw, Char-lo, Oeque-nox-ie, Kin-jo-a-no, Ot-to-kee, Wa-se-on, Wa-se-on-i-quet, and others/. Of the Pottawatomies were Waw-bon-see, Baw-beece, Me-te-ah, Win-a-meg; of the Miamis, La Fountain and Richard-ville, with many others, whose names are not recalled; of Shawnees, were Joseph and William Parks, whose Reservation was at Wa-pa-kon-neta. The Walkers (half-breeds) were principal men among the Wyandotts at Upper Sandusky. Turkey Foot (Mis-sis-sa-inzit), was a noted Ottawa Chief, as was O-to-saw. Little Turtle (Mis-she-kenee) perhaps was the most noted, as he was the most intelligent Chief of the Miamis, who, Mr. Howard things, lies buried near Fort Wayne, Indiana. Turkey Foot was buried near the rock from which he harangued his Braves when he fell with a bullet from one of Wayne's soldiers, August 20, 1794. Mr. Howard's memory is stored with facts and associations connected with the aboriginal tribes with whom he was so long intimate. When asked by Governor Noyes, of Ohio, why he always spoke with such special kindness of the Indians, he replied, "They have always, in childhood and in manhood, treated me with kindness, and I could not be ungrateful for their uniform generosity. Treat an Indian justly, and you will secure his friendship for life. Treat him illy, and you have his enmity for life." Mr. Howard's present residence is on the site of the old Indian Village of Winameg, Fulton County, where the former residents so long enjoyed savage life, and where so many of them found their last resting place, which is now carefully protected. The Red Man has taken his last drink from the shaded spring at the foot of the hill, his last look upon the landscape so long his pride, and now sleeps nearer the setting Sun. In the Spring of 1827-28, Mr. Howard - then a boy of 10 years - first visited that locality, and there ate his first bowl of hominy and roast venison, and took his first drink from the pure waters of the spring. The Indians had just returned from their Winter hunting-grounds in the pine and sugar-maple forest of the then wild Territory, now the fertile and rich State of Michigan, where they had enjoyed a successful hunt; bringing in a bountiful supply of Maple sugar (of which they were fond). They were having their annual dance or worship of the Great Spirit (Chi Manitoo), returning thanks for success in the hunt, and asking for a prosperous season to come. For the Summer, the women were to plant and how, while the men, beside lounging about, were to look for an occasional deer. Corn, beans and pumpkins were still planted there; but not by the faithful, patient squaws of former days.
Mr. Howard, with all his early attachment for the primitive ways of the Indians, has not been backward in promoting the methods and means of Christian civilization. For forty years past he has been identified, to greater or less extent with the agricultural, the financial, the political, and the social movements of the age, seeking faithfully to meet his full duty in these several relations of life. In promoting the construction of good roads, elevating the farming interests, and the establishment of sound morals and general education, he has been active. In 1870 he represented the Tenth District on the State Board of Equalization. Elected to the State Senate in 1871 from the Thirty-Third District, he served in that body for two years. In 1860 he was Presidential Elector, casting the vote of the Fifth Congressional District for Abraham Lincoln. Of all his record in connection with elections, that which gives him his chief pride, was made in the fight for the exclusion of the sale of intoxicating liquors at Wauseon, in April, 1887. He was appointed by Governor Foraker, April 1, 1887, a Trustee of the Toledo Asylum for the Insane, constructed for the State, near Toledo. Mr. Howard was married in 1843 with Mary b. Copeland. There were born to them two children - Osceola E. M., Civil Engineer, of San Diego, California; and M. Agnes, now residing with her parents at Wauseon, Ohio. with Dresden Winfield Huston Howard.7 Ann Janette Howard was also known as Anjinette/Anjanette Howard.8

from FoindAGrave.com: "Honorable George Laskey - At One Time State Senator and for Many Years Identified with Wood County Interests
     "Honorable George Laskey, one of the prominent Pioneer Citizens of the Maumee Valley, after many months of Paralytic suffering passed away at his home in Toledo, August 11 1899, and in this final ending there passed from earth the soul of a grand man, a devoted father and a whole souled public spirited citizen. He was honest, energetic, upright in every phase of life - a man of sterling integrity who enjoyed the unshaken confidence of all who knew him.
     "The TOLEDO BEE in announcing his death gave the following brief sketch of his busy life: Honorable George Laskey was born in Devonshire, England, near the town of Bristol, August 23 1824. His parents, George and Ann (Southard) Laskey, came to this country in 1833, landing in New York. Coming to Ohio, they settled in Lucas County, then a wild, uncultivated state, and proceeded to make a home among the early pioneers of Ohio.
In 1837, at the age of 13 years, the subject of this sketch started in the world for himself. Going to Grand Rapids, Ohio, he accepted a position as Clerk in the store of Francis Hinsdale. Industrious, energetic, reliable and thoroughly honorable in his relations to his employer, he showed while still a boy the sterling qualities that were so marked in his later life, and at the end of nine years time was admitted to a partnership in the firm, which made a marked success. In 1851, five years after young Laskey had become identified with the firm, Mr Hinsdale died and Mr Laskey continued to carry on the extensive business, looking after Mrs Hinsdale's interests in connection with his own. Later he and his brother bought out Mrs Hinsdale and the firm name was changed to Laskey Bros. Being energetic, wide awake young men, possessed of more than ordinary business ability, they became the most popular merchants of Grand Rapids and won many friends. In 1866 they sold out and retired from the mercantile business, becoming interested in real estate.
After retiring from his mercantile career, Mr Laskey became interested in agricultural pursuits, having previously purchased large tracts of land in Wood, Henry, Putnam and Lucas Counties. At the time of his death, he owned several thousand acres in these counties, most of which is laid out in fine farms and under a high state of cultivation. This venture proved markedly successful and he continued in the occupation until September 1877, when he removed to Toledo.
     "In 1859 Mr Laskey was elected to the Ohio State Senate, to represent the six counties of: Lucas, Wood, Hancock, Henry, Fulton and Putnam, serving a term of two years. While in the Senate he was one of the committee on ditches and roads, doing more than any other man in Ohio toward inaugurating the drainage system that has reclaimed so many acres of wet land. He had always taken an active part in the drainage system and in all public affairs, being an important factor in the growth and improvement of the community in which he made his home. He served as Commissioner of Wood County for six years.
Mr Laskey and Antoinette Howard were united in marriage January 1 1848. The union was a happy one and was blessed by six children, four sons and two daughters. For many years they attended the Congregational Church in Toledo, and were among its most active mambers.

     DISCHARGED FEBRUARY 1864
     QUARTERMASTER 144TH OVI
     John Reid was the son of James and Priscilla Reid and was born near Edinburgh, Scotland. The family located in Pennsylvania and later in Hancock County, Ohio, at a point known as Reid's corners, where James Reid who was a ship's carpenter by trade began business as a house builder.He was also a justice of the peace for many years. James and Priscilla had seven children: James who lives in Van Wert County, Ohio; William, a character sui generis, a Carpenter, a Shoemaker, a lawyer, and worldwide traveler, who died at Sedalia, Missouri; John H., Raine, a resident of Paulding County, Ohio; Alexander G., living at North Baltimore, Wood County; Sarah P., the wife of Edward Koons, of Lawrence, Kansas; and Thomas C., who died at Bowling Green, Ohio, September 7, 1892.
     John H. Reid was born in Pittsburg Pennsylvania, February 11, 1823. Not being content with a common-school education and the carpenter's trade, he determined to enter Oberlin college, where, by working in the harvest field in summer, and doing odd jobs during term time, he succeeded in paying his expenses and graduating. He then read law in Findlay, and on being admitted to the bar located at Delta, Fulton County, where, in 1851, he was elected prosecuting attorney.
     There he remained until 1853, when he moved to Perrysburg, Wood County. He had previously married a native of this county, Miss Aurelia Augusta Howard, who was born at Grand Rapids January 30, 1826. On his appointment as postmaster in Perrysburg, his wife, a lady of fine mental ability, took charge of the office while he devoted his time to his profession. In 1863 he organized Company D, 86th Regiment,OVI and went to the front as their captain. The company went through the campaign which resulted in the evacuation of Cumberland Gap, Captain Reid receiving a severe sunstroke while in the mountains. His company had enlisted for six months, but were kept on duty nearly a year. After returning home he again entered the Army, this time as quartermaster of the 144th OVI, in the hundred-day service. Shortly after the Regiment went to the front Frank A. joined his father at Fort Dix, Maryland, and saw considerable of Army life during that summer. They took part in the operations in the vicinity of Annapolis and Harpers Ferry. At the close of the war Captain Reid resumed his practice at Perrysburg, and at the time of the contest over the County seat he was retained on the side of Bowling Green, whose interests he heartily espoused and earnestly defended in the highest courts of appeal. Victorious in spite of the array of learned counsel on the opposing side, he removed to Bowling Green, where he carried on his practice, the latter part of the time in partnership with his son, Frank A., until a stroke of paralysis gave warning of his approaching death, which occurred on November 1, 1885. As a judge he had few equals in soundness of logic and subtlety of analysis. As an advocate he was remarkably successful, and when occasion required he could rise to an impassioned yet graceful eloquence. So well balanced was he in his acquirements and gifts that it is difficult to make a distinction, and mention any leading characteristic. Before the war he was a Democrat, but studying the issues of that time he became a Republican.
     He and his wife, who survives him and resides at Chattanooga, Tennessee, were members of the Presbyterian Church. Of their children, five grew to adult age, of whom Frank A. is the eldest; J. Howard, born May 13, 1860, died September 30, 1886; James R. and Richard W. are clothing merchants at Chattanooga; Mary Augusta lives with her mother.
     The Howard family, from whom John's wife descended, were prominent in the history of the Maumee Valley. Thomas Howard, came from Yates County, New York, in 1823 with his wife, a daughter, Sydney, who afterward became Mrs. Howard Davidson, and his three sons – Edward, Robert A., and Richard M. W. – with their respective families. Part of the family came by water, the rest taking the land route and driving their livestock. They first located at Fort Meigs, but later removed to the rapids of the Maumee, Gilead, where they made their home for many years.
     Thomas Howard(who was born November 15, 1758), died there May 25, 1825. His son, Robert A. Howard, Aurelia's father was born November 10, 1798, and survived all the other members of the band of pioneers. His last years were spent in what is now Pike Township, Fulton County, where he died November 26, 1872. The Toledo Commercial of December 4, 1872, gave an extended obituary notice, and mentioned his valued service as a justice of the peace in Fulton County, an office which he held for many years, and used as a means of quietly adjusting difficulties, his kindly advice as a man of well-known impartiality being as potent in its influence as his judicial decisions. After Fulton County was established he was employed to transcribe the old records and later was elected County recorder. His wife, formerly miss Priscilla Nelson, was highly esteemed by all who knew her. After a half-century of married life, they died within a year of each other. Of their nine children five are now living: A. A., of Mason, Michigan; Col. N. M., a prominent businessman of Omaha, Nebraska; Edwin A., of Hillsdale, Michigan; formerly and Indian agent in Dakota under President Grant; James W., of Fulton County, Ohio; and Aurelia Augusta who married John Reid.

Hugh McAllister Sr.1

Last Edited30 Dec 2015
     Hugh McAllister Sr. married Mary Harbison after 1730 at Pennsylvania, USA; Ellis & Hungerford [1886:834] says they married after Hugh moved to the Americas in 1730.1
Hugh McAllister Sr. died in 1769.2
     He was a mentioned with Hugh McAllister Jr.; from Ellis & Hungerford [1886:832-5]: Chapter XVI. Fayette Township. "At the December term of the Juniata County Court, in 1833, a petition was presented, asking for a new township to be formed from Fermanagh and Greenwood...The first settlers in this locality were designated as living on the North, the Middle or the South forks, which unite and form the Lost Creek, near Jerich...Samuel Mitchell and Hugh McAlister, Scotchmen, residing south of the Blue Ridge, after the opening of the New Purchase, started out to explore the country with a view of selecting a site on which to settle
     The tract of John Irwin, adjoining the Hoge tract, which was sold to Samuel Mitchell in 1756, was soon after sold to Hugh McAlister. He was of Scoth-Irish descent. His father was Hugh McAlister, who emigrated from the north of Ireland to this country in 1730, and married a Miss Harbison. they had three sons - John, Hugh and William. John settled early in 1755 in Sherman's Valley, and Hugh and William both settled in Lost Creek Valley.
     Hugh McAlister, Jr., settled upon his land in 1756. He joined the forces of Captain Forbes and served faithfully until the close of the Indian hostilities which then resulted from the conspiracy of Pontiac. The families then living in Lost Creek were again compelled to flee to Sherman's Valley, Carlisle and other places of safety, where their friends were congregated in greater numbers. At this time several of the men of the settlement were out with the forces of Captain Forbes. These families of McAlister, Mitcherl and others buried their pots and kettles, and taking the few things they could carry and typing packages pon their cattle, slowly and painfully made their way to Sherman's Valley and joined their friends.
     Hugh McAlister and his brother William were, in 1776, enlisted in Captain John Hamilton's forces, which joined Washington's forces the day after the capture of the Hessians at Trenton. Hugh was successively promoted to be lieutenant, captain and major. At the close of the war he was in command of the forces stationed at Potter's Fort (now Centre County), and commanded an expedition sent to punish the Indians for depredations committed near Great Island (noe Lock Haven) at the close of the revolution, and settled upon his farm and lived peacefully the remainder of his days. He died September 22, 1810, aged seventy-four years, and his wife, Sarah, died Julyl 6, 1802.
     The children of Hugh and Sarah McAlister were Robert, Hugh, John, William, Nancy and Polly.3
     

Hugh McAllister Sr. immigrated before 1732 to Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, USA; from Dobson [1989:163] "3359. McAllister, Hugh, res. Argyll, sh. pre 1732, sett. Lancaster Co Pa, m. Miss Harbison, ch. Hugh, d. 1769. (BLG2800)"
