     She was a mentioned with Thomas Howard; The descendant chart for Thomas and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Howard by Mary Agnes Howard McClarren has been very helpful in providing research direction for tracing the descendants of Thomas and Elizabeth. A copy of this chart was provided to me by Carolyn K. Howard of Sunbury, Ohio.7

;      NB: I think that there is a reasonable possibility that the Nancy Haight (c1797-1881) who m. 1816 Edward Howard was the sister of the Hannah Haight (c1789-1856) who m. 1819 as his third wife, William Howard, the older brother of Edward. I have been unable to conclusive identify the parents of either Nancy or Hannah, but I have two possible candidates:
     1. The first possibility is from Cleveland [1879:I:368]: "John A. Haight, who was for a time a partner with Martin Gage, in trade at Bellona, was for some years a merchant at Benton Centre..." The Howards were living in Benton Twp., Yates Co., NY at the time. Both Benton Centre and Bellona are in Benton Twp.
     2. The second possibility is a Stephen Haight (1760-1812) who is buried in Torrey, Yates Co. He and Abigail Lane (1760-1812) had three identified daughters born 1790-1796 (Phebe 1790, Susan 1791, and Jemima 1796). Torrey Twp. borders Benton and both are small towns. (see attached map of Yates County from Cleveland [1873].)9,10

     ; 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

ex-Senator, Capitalist and Farmer, was born in Dresden, Yates county, New York, on the 3d of November, 1818, of American parents and of English ancestry. In 1821 his parents removed with him to Fort Meigs, Ohio, on the south bank of the Maumeeriver, where they landed on the 17th of June in that year. In 1823 his father, Edward Howard, removed to Grand Rapids, eighteen miles above Fort Meigs, where he died in 1841. Such education as he received was obtained during a rather brief attendance at the school of the Indian mission, ten miles above Fort Meigs. He worked with his father upon the farm during his youth, but as he grew up he became an Indian trader, and continued in that line of business until he was about thirty years of age. He assisted in the removal of the Pottawatomie and Ottawa Indians from the Maumee to the west of the Mississippi river, and continued to trade there until 1842, when, on the death of his father and brother, he returned to Ohio. After a few return-trips up the Missouri river, he settled down to farming, stock-raising and wool-growing. In 1852 he removed to Alamakee county, Iowa, where he bought of the government a tract of land, upon which he laid out the town of Winfield, now Harper's Ferry, on the west bank of the Mississippi. He returned to Ohio in 1853, where he has been engaged in agricultural pursuits ever since, adding to his business as farmer the work involved in various official positions and numerous enterprises as an energetic and judicious capitalist. During the war he was prominently and effectively active. He was appointed by Governor Dennison a member of the State Military Committee, in which position he was continued by Governors Tod and Brough, and throughout the struggle he was busy assisting in organizing regiments and forwarding general military preparations. Politically, he has been a steadfast and consistent Republican. He was the elector from the Tenth Congressional District of Ohio at President Lincoln's first election, and was a delegate at the Baltimore Convention, which nominated Mr. Lincoln for his second term in 1864. In 1870 he was elected a member of the State Board of Equalization. In the fall of 1871 he was elected to the Ohio State Senate, where he served with honor for two years. He is President of the Toledo & Grand Rapids Railroad Company, which road is to be built from Toledo to Council Bluffs. He is also Treasurer of the Toledo & Southwestern Railroad Company. He is Director of the Commercial National Bank of Toledo, of which institution he is a charter member. He was married, in October, 1843, to Mary Blackwood Copeland, of Delaware county, New York. He has two children, a son and daughter; the son he named after the noted chief and warrior, Osceola, of the Seminoles of Florida, for whose ability he had great respect. He has always been the true friend of the Indian, at whose hands he received many favors and kindnesses during his early life, and in later years had much influence among the aboriginal tribes. President Lincoln, being informed of his disposition and influence with the Indians, and recognizing these qualifications, offered him the Superintendency of the tribes on the Upper Missouri river, but the appointment was declined, as he had never sought or held public position of any kind.6

James "Pike" Monroe Howard was buried in 1841 at Howard Cemetery, Grand Rapids, Wood Co., Ohio, USA,

;
Per email from Rebecca Vajdak: "Apparently, I was originally following up on James Pike Howard. I asked my Uncle Robert about his death and burial. He was in his late 90's at the time but stated that James "Pike" Howard is buried in the corner of the Howard Cemetery and it had a stone marking the spot. He traveled to the cemetery with his grandmother Agnes Howard McClarren in the mid 1930's and she told him that James is buried there. While she did not use the words "suicide" she indicated that he suffered from what we would now call "clinical depression" and shot himself. His body was discovered somewhere along the Maumee River."6
James "Pike" Monroe Howard died in 1841 at Ohio?, USA.2
     ; 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.7

;      NB: I had thought that I had found a FindAGrave memorial for this James Monroe HOWARD (Memorial #66485705), but it now appears that that memorial is for a different man. Waggoner [1888:691] said that the correct James died in 1841 which is the DOD on the memorial.
     I have deleted the information I had taken from the FAG memorial. GA Vaut.8,9,2 James "Pike" Monroe Howard was also known as Pike Monroe Howard.3

     ; 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.9 Ann Janette Howard was also known as Anjinette/Anjanette Howard.10

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.

     GAR 86TH OVI COMPANY D
     ENLISTED FROM PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP JULY 1863
     RECEIVED SEVERE SUNSTROKE IN THE CUMBERLAND MOUNTAINS
     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.

Alexander Howard and Elizabeth "Betsy" Hobart appeared in the census of 7 August 1820 at Phelpstown, Ontario Co., New York, USA; This is an Alexander Howard living in Phelps Twp. in 1820 and some think to have been the Alexander who was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Howard, given the ages of children in the household, but the enumerated ages of the oldest man and woman (both 45 and over) are too old to be that Alexander and his wife Elizabeth "Betsy" (Hobart) Howard. However, there is no other Alexander Howard in the 1820 census in the area. There are also 3 people of color in the household (perhaps slaves).

     Elizabeth "Betsy" Hobart was born in 1786; Based on grave marker inscription 59 yrs old at death.6 She married Alexander Howard, son of Thomas Howard and Elizabeth Armstrong, before 1808; Alexander appears to be married in the 1810 census for Benton with two young girls.2,7,8
Elizabeth "Betsy" Hobart died on 22 September 1845 at Scott Co., Illinois, USA.6
Elizabeth "Betsy" Hobart was buried after 22 September 1845 at Canatsey, Scott Co., Illinois, USA,

     She was a mentioned with Thomas Howard; The descendant chart for Thomas and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Howard by Mary Agnes Howard McClarren has been very helpful in providing research direction for tracing the descendants of Thomas and Elizabeth. A copy of this chart was provided to me by Carolyn K. Howard of Sunbury, Ohio.8 Elizabeth "Betsy" Hobart was also known as Betsy Hobert.10,11,12 Elizabeth "Betsy" Hobart was also known as Betsy Habert.2

Elizabeth "Betsy" Hobart and Alexander Howard appeared in the census of 7 August 1820 at Phelpstown, Ontario Co., New York, USA; This is an Alexander Howard living in Phelps Twp. in 1820 and some think to have been the Alexander who was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Howard, given the ages of children in the household, but the enumerated ages of the oldest man and woman (both 45 and over) are too old to be that Alexander and his wife Elizabeth "Betsy" (Hobart) Howard. However, there is no other Alexander Howard in the 1820 census in the area. There are also 3 people of color in the household (perhaps slaves).

     Elizabeth Polly Patterson was born in 1788; The "Joseph" family tree on ancestor cites "letter from Ted Cook including pedigree charts, dated 24 Oct 96" as the source of this date. I am in coorespondence with the author of this family tree to seek additional information. GA Vaut 29 Jan 2016.3,4 She married William Howard, son of Thomas Howard and Elizabeth Armstrong, before 1815;
His 1st wife. Their first child, Sydney/Sidna was was born ca 1806 (if she was 18 when she married).
     from Cleveland [1873:1:226]: "Elizabeth married William, son of Thomas Howard of Benton, (now Torrey.) where she died, leaving one daughter, Sidna, who emigrated with her father to the Maumee Valley, Ohio."2,5,6
Elizabeth Polly Patterson died before 1819 at Benton, Ontario Co. (now Yates Co.), New York, USA; The date of death is based on the fact that William remarried in 1819. The place of death is from Ancestry. GA Vaut 28 Jan 2016.3,4
     She was a mentioned with Thomas Howard; The descendant chart for Thomas and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Howard by Mary Agnes Howard McClarren has been very helpful in providing research direction for tracing the descendants of Thomas and Elizabeth.

     Margaret (?) married Alexander Armstrong Jr., son of Alexander Armstrong Sr. and Elizabeth E. (?), before 1788; There is a 1781 marriage record for an Alexander Armstrong and a Mary Murray, but a 1788 land reecord listing an "Alexander and Margaret Armstrong" that seems to indicate that he married a woman named Margaret. There is also a 1798 land document that listed his wife as Mary.1
     Margaret (?) and Alexander Armstrong Jr. were mentioned in a land transaction on 14 January 1788 at Beaver Dam, Northumberland Co., Pennsylvania, USA,
Memo: NOTE: There are 1787 & 1788 warrant transactions by: 1) Thos Howard, John McLean and George Armstrong; and 2) Alexander and Margaret Armstrong for land in Beaver Dam Township "adjoining land of Epenetus Hart". This probably refers to land warranted to Epenetus in a 1787 warrant. This may also be the location that Ellis & Hungerford [1886:839] refer to when they state that Epenetus is not found in the Fermanagh area after 1791 and "probably moved to his lands in Beaver Dam Township." I now believe that this Alexander and Margaret Armstrong are Alexander Junior and his wife. See http://mapq.st/1GNdPFl for map of location of Beaver Dam, PA.

     ; Per Egle:
     "Sarah Nelson, daughter of Robert Nelson, was born in Fermanagh township, then Cumberland, now Juniata county, Pa., about the year 1740. Her parents came from the north of Ireland and were early settlers on Lost creek, in the Juniata settlement. In the year 1760 she married Hugh McAlister, of the same locality. He was a soldier in the French and Indian wars, and served as an officer in the Revolutionary army with distinction. He participated in the Jersey Campaign of 1776 and in that of the summer of 1777 in and around Philadelphia. He was a man of prominence in the church and in public affairs, and no one in the settlement commanded a higher respect for integrity and virtue. He died at his residence in Lost creek Valley, September 22, 1810, aged seventy-four years.
     "Mrs. McAlister, during the period of the struggle for independence, when, in the fall of 1776, the able-bodied men of the neighborhood had departed on the service of the common cause, vied with her patriotic countrymen in preventing the evil which would have followed the neglect of putting in the fall crop in season, joined the ploughs and prepared the fallows for seed, so that should their fathers, brothers and lovers be detained abroad in defense of their liberties, they determined to put in the crops themselves. In numerous instances this was necessary, as many of the associated companies did not reach their homes until the winter had set in.
     "No woman in all the settlement was regarded with greater esteem than Mrs. McAlister. She possessed in a large measure all the rare qualities which characterized the devoted wife and mother and truly Christian woman. In the home and the frontier neighborhood she was easily a leader and a help-mate in the gloomiest hours of the war. Her dispensations of hospitality were always distinguished — extended, alas, so frequently to the helpless stranger fleeing before the ruthless savage of the forest. She died at her home, in Fermanagh, July 6, 1802.
     "Of Captain and Mrs. McAlister's descendants Hugh Nelson McAlister was probably the most illustrious. He died while a member of the Constitutional Convention of 1873. As a man he was just, upright and inflexibly honest—as a Christian, he was sincere, faithful and most exemplary. His eldest daughter became the wife of General James Addams Beaver, Governor of Pennsylvania, 1887-1891."5

Hugh McAllister Sr.1

M, #78867, d. 1769
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
     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)"
BLG = Burke's Landed Gentry.2
; from Ellis & Hungerford [1886:833]:
     "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. They crossed the Juniata and passed beyond where James Patterson had located, at Mexico, and came into what was known as Lost Creek Valley, and decided to remain there. William Giltnockey, William Armstrong, Edward Armstrong, John Irwin, David Hoge and others had already located lauds in this valley. There were two tracts, that lay adjoining each other, that they selected, at that time owned by John Irwin and David Hoge, and which were warranted February 3, 1755. Hugh McAlister purchased the tract of John Irwin, which is shown in the draft of the Hoge or Mitchell tract as lying .south of it.
     "Samuel Mitchell settled upon his improvement, but was driven off, as were all the settlers, in 1756, and returned to Carlisle or Sherman's Valley. He returned again in 1763, and, after getting settled, was again compelled to leave with his family, and did not return until 1766, from which time he, with others who had determined to settle here, remained. In August, 1766, he took out two warrants, for ninety acres and one hundred and two acres. He was one of the settlers, in May, 1780, who organized to protect the frontiers. He died in 1783, and in 1793 his widow is mentioned as owning the land he had purchased.
     "Their children were William, Robert, Jeannet and Nancy. William married, in 1796, Nancy, a daughter of Major Hugh McAlister."
from Ellis & Hungerford [1886:834]:
     "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 Scotch-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 sous—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, Mitchell and others buried their pots and kettles, and taking the few things they could carry and tying packages upon 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 (now 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 July 6, 1802.
     "The children of Hugh and Sarah McAlister were Robert, Hugh, John, William, Nancy and Polly.
     "Robert married Elizabeth Thompson and settled in Tuscarora Valley ; Hugh, the second son, married Catharine Elliot, March 12, 1795, and lived on the homestead. His wife, Catharine, died July 16, 1811. He established a store in McAlistertown, as it was then called, and, in 1817, moved into the new brick house he then built, and where he lived till his death, July 16, 1843, aged seventy-four."3
