Historian or Genealogist? We often seek to define the relationship between these two disciplines in our pursuit of people and places. As a professional historian (and mildmannered librarian), I sometimes look for answers to difficult questions without an abundance of verifiable evidence. So too does the genealogist in me, whose skills are challenged by an inability to find a lost relative; to locate the farms where they lived so long ago; to find that missing link that brings satisfaction to my search for who I am and where did I come from. Although I spent seven years in college studying the fine points of research, it took the masterful experience of our Ashland Chapter Librarian Rita Kopp, and the many members of our group, whose knowledge and skills in finding people and events of the past far surpass my own, to guide me toward my own family story. Now I This clipping was donated to us by the Richland Co Chapter OGS and has on the reverse Nov. 19, 1907, Banner. M I D G E T S UNITED BY A LETTER Arkansas Dwarf Sympathized with Woman Who Lost Husband Wins a Widow Through the Mail Bridegroom 4 Feet 1 am hooked and the search for the Snyders, Schneiders, Deibels, Teisingers, Wards, Hommans, Swingles, and Melvins of Muskingum County, Ohio is in full swing. My quest has now become easier thanks to their assistance. Those same skills were eminently useful in my pursuit of answers about a local railroad s history. Finding the relatives of deceased engineers, conductors, and brakemen; locating the farms where the long abandoned track once lay, and learning so much about the history of my adopted Ashland County and its citizens, has given me a new perspective on historical research. Finding evidence that Great-Uncle Ira was an employee of the LA&S Railroad sure made me happy too!!! Leola Means Armstrong Inch and the Bride is Only 4 Feet Tall. M rs. Leola A. Means, wife of the late Luther Means, the well known Ashland county dwarf, who died on his farm near Savannah lake a year or so ago, is again a bride. Luther Means, it will be recalled, was scarcely four feet tall, and his wife has now February 2006 I am honored to have been elected president of the Ashland Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society by those members who have aided my research and helped me learn the varied skills needed to be a reasonably proficient genealogist. My thanks to pastpresident Anne Budd and all those who have served in leadership positions and contributed to this chapter s success. I encourage all members to share their knowledge and expertise and encourage others to join our pursuit of family history. We welcome all seekers of knowledge, with links to Ashland and its predecessor counties, to utilize our resources and skills to make your historical and genealogical search more rewarding. Bill SNYDER, President A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT married a man who is hardly any taller than her former husband. The groom, A.D. Armstrong, who is a bookkeeper for the Edwin Kelton Mining Co., and assistant postmaster of Dodd City, Arkansas, enjoys a wide circle of friends and the position he holds would recommend him to be a man of great integrity.

2 PAGE 2 THE PASTFINDER VOLUME 25, ISSUE 1 Armstrong continued: Mr. Armstrong is only four feet one inch in height, while the lady of his choice is but four feet. The combined weight of the contracting parties is but 194 pounds, the groom weighing 94 pounds and the bride scarcely 100. The wedding of these extraordinary people is the result of quite a pretty romance. When the bride s former husband died three years ago, Mr. Armstrong heard of his death and wrote the widow a letter of sympathy. She replied thanking him for his kindness and an engagement and the wedding resulted from the correspondence which followed. Gold Rush Days We conclude our story of 101 men who left the Dorland home in Rowsburg, Jackson Twp., Ashland County, in 1852 for California to search for gold. The names were given in an earlier issue. These readings cover the journey into California and the initial attempts at mining. This is the journal of George W. King. March 14, 1853 Wrote letter to C.L. King. March 15, 1853 Wrote letter to R.J. King. March 16, 1853 Wrote letter to Miss M--- and Sophronia. March 22, 1853 Pd. My tithing one tenth of all I had. March 27, 1853 Took a hunt on the mountain had a good time. March 30, 1853 Again set my face towards Cal. Drove 10 miles to G.S.L. City. March 31, 1853 Left G.S.L. city, traveled ten miles and encamped for the night. April 1, 1853 Drove 15 miles and crossed the Weber river at the ford. Brown Family Bible Albert Keim, who lives in Ashland County, has this original Bible and he permitted Chapter member Larry Cellar to scan it. Some of the names are very difficult to read. The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments: translated out of the Original Tongues; and with the former translations diligently compared and revised.

The snow on the mountain cools our ardor for traveling fast. April 5, 1853 Was overtaken today by a man who accused my friend Taylor and myself of driving off cattle, he staid with us over night and returned the next day to the city, satisfied that we knew nothing of his cattle. April 6, 1853 Crossed the Box Elder river and encamped by two graves which makes it look like the Plains again. One was an Indean [sic] grave, the other a young man s who was killed, Charles Philleps, with a club. We are now 65 miles A young man who was killed, Charles Philleps, with a club.

April 9, 1853 Drove to the Molad [sic] river three miles from Bear river and ferried it. All across at dark. April 10, 1853 Drove 4 miles and laid by to explore the mountains to see what the prospect was for getting through the canyon, as we are the first train on the road, we expect to find lots of snow. We are the Pioneers of 1853 for Cal. April 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15, 1853 Laid by playing Ball and other amusements to pass the time, elected our Capt., etc.

3 VOLUME 25, ISSUE 1 THE PASTFINDER PAGE 3 April 16, 1853 Rolled out and drove 18 miles and encamped at the Hot Springs. April 17, 1853 Rolled out and drove 15 miles. Came within sight of Salt Lake twice today. Stormy this evening. April 18, 1853 Rolled out and drove 14 miles to deep creek. April 19, 1853 Drove to a spring on the mountain side. Indians can be seen lurking around us in all directions and as I am officer of the Indian Guard, I have doubled the guard for the night. We don t mean to be taken by surprise. April 20, 1853 Drove 15 miles to Stony Creek. We have our last view of Salt Lake from this place. The Lake from this place looks beautiful and grand. April 21, 1853 Laid by today in consequence of the snow falling, which is now 6 or 8 in. deep. Hard times these on the Gentiles. April 22, 1853 Still in camp, the snow is disappearing fast. April 23, 1853 Drove to Decasure Creek and encamped for the night. April 24, 1853 Rolled out and drove to the ford, had a hard time crossing, encamped at the foot of the Goose creek Mountain. April 25, 1853 Drove over the mountain today, stormy all day, snow six inches deep at night. These are decidedly hard times, but if one has the right kind of sand in his gizzard it don t make him home sick, though one may think of home often. [missing page] May 3, the head waters, of the Humbolt or St. Marys river. The captain and one of the men have got in a row and the Capt. threatens to leave him but the majority of the company says that he can t be left. There are now 35 Indians in camp pretty well armed with bows and arrows, and several rifles that they get off the emigrants, there is but 22 of us and we apprehend some trouble from them tonight. They will not take us by surprise for we are a wide-awake set of fellows. There is not probably 3 white men within 200 miles of us. May 4, 1853 Rolled out and drove 8 miles and crossed the south branch of the river and encamped. Indians in all directions. Scally [sic] times these. May 5, 1853 Rolled out and drove to the middle fork and encamped. Indians, antelope, and wolves are the principal game. There is a trading post and ferry kept here by a Mormon Mountaineer. May 6, 1853 Ferried the river this morning, all across safe at 12 and all drunk but myself, and wholly unfit for defense if attacked by Indians. We are now among the Diger or Gosawich Indians, the most hostile between Mo. and Cal. Drove 8 miles and encamped, the men getting sobered down but all very courageous and for fighting Indians, and not one in sight. I have just been out three miles from camp to kill an antelope and got chased in by Indians. We are now close by where two men were killed in a scourge with the Indians. Ten of the Indians were killed. We have two men in our company who were engaged in the fight. I stood guard last night. May 7, 1853 Rolled out this morning and drove to the north fork of Marys river and forded it, the water ran into our wagons over the top of the horses, deep fording this. At ten o clock A.M., I read on a board at the head of a grave the following short but sad inscription: Samuel Oliver, Shot while on guard, Sept. 15, 1852, Just at daylight, by an Indian, From Wis., Aged 29 years. May 8, 1853 Drove 18 miles. I had an antelope chase, but killed none. One of our men shot an Indian. I guess in a brawl. One year ago today I bid good bye to civilization and started across the plains, expecting to see Cal. in a few months but I have been disappointed in both, and like the Christian Pilgrim, am still looking forward to my journey s end where the Mormons dare not molest, and snow storms are not so common as in the Desert God forsaken part of the world. May 9, 1853 Drove ten miles and then left the river and struck off across the plains and after driving ten miles farther struck the river again and encamped for the night. We saw some Indians today and persuaded them into camp. They were nearly naked and appeared as wild as young partridges. One of them had a recommend from a mail carrier, stating that he was a friendly Indian, another one of them asked me to give him one for he was good Indian too. I wrote on a piece of paper the following and gave it to him: May 9, If this Indian hands you this paper, just tie him up and thrash him like thunder. For he looks to me like a suspicious character. N.B. Give him particular hell. G.W.K. He was well pleased with it and said that I was way no Marican, and he was way no Ingin; Good American, Good Indian. May 10, 1853 Crossed a stream today and laid by. We are several days travel ahead of anything on the road. We have two Indians with us who have traveled with us several days. They say they are They were nearly naked and all appeared as wild as young partridges. going to Cal. with us, but we suspect that they are trying to play smart on us. May 11, 1853 Drove 15 miles and encamped in a little valley among the mountains. I have just been reading an inscription on a board that was placed at the head of a grave close by. The bones of him who was lain there are now scattered about the ground like thousands of others, he has been dug up by the wolves and his bones left to bleach on the plains. Poor fellow, his friends know not his fate, perhaps it is well they do not. They may have heard what the inscription tells the emigrant that he was killed by the Indians while on guard. I am on guard tonight. May 12, 1853 Laid by till noon, it being rainy. Drove 15 miles this afternoon and encamped in the rain. May 13, 1853 Rolled out and drove 18 miles over a very bad road. The bottom road next to the river had become entirely impassable, and we are about to start for the bluffs. May 14, 1853 Mr. Loveless and myself started out to find a new road, and did not return to camp until noon after riding 18 or 20 miles through the rain. We hitched up and retraced 11 miles of our road that we traveled yesterday and then struck off for the bluffs. We here were overtaken by the train that my friend Taylor and Wilson and myself left on Goose creek 200 miles back for we considered it decidedly a slow train and we were in a hurry to go along. We encamped at dark ahead of everything on the road after having traveled 18 miles through the rain. This is awful. May 15, 1853 Rolled out early this morning and drove 18 miles through the rain, snow and mud, and here met with our usual luck, we got stuck in the mud. It took ten yoke of cattle to haul one wagon out of the mud unloading the traps. The train in our wake is in sight and in the mud fast for the night. Good. They crowed over us when they overtook us. They will not over take us again. Today we passed where two men had been shot by Indians. Their bodies had been dug up by Indians or wolves. They were killed in There are two men in our train who were in the same train in which the two men were killed. May 16, 1853 Rolled out and drove 18 miles before sun set, and then baited our team and hitched up again and drove until midnight. After setting the guard for the night I laid down on the ground tired and sleepy and soon fell asleep and awoke in the morning much refreshed.

4 PAGE 4 THE PASTFINDER VOLUME 25, ISSUE 1 May 17, 1853 Found ourselves lost this morning and laid by all day to look out the road. May 18, 1853 Rolled out this morning and lost our way. We wandered around till noon when we found our road again and laid by for the remainder of the day. May 19, 1853 Drove 30 miles and encamped on Sand Hill Creek. I am on guard tonight. May 20, 1853 This morning we had a row in camp. A Herington struck Capt. Holley with his gun and knocked him down and repeated the blows to the number of six before we took him off for we thought that he deserved it. Our Capt. is now troubled with Big-head. May 21, 1853 Capt. Holley is worse this morning. We left the river this morning and took to the mountains and traveled 18 miles to where we struck the river again where we encamped for the night at 10 o clock the first train in our rear drove up and encamped a little back. We are the Pioneer Company yet. May 22, 1853 This morning I took a tramp ahead of the train. Wild geese and ducks are the common game of the country and Indians and herbs that grows spontaneous but I have me faithful Betsy with me in persuit [sic] of the birds and don t fear the Indians. May 23, 1853 Rolled out and drove 25 miles, passed hundreds of dead cattle, the wreck of former years. Met Californians on their return to their home and friends. We are now but 30 miles from the sink of the river. May 24, 1853 Found the skull of some poor fellow on the mountains, wrote my friend Taylor s and my own name on it the day we passed and hung it on a stick by the road and traveled on. Encamped but five miles from the sink of the river. May 25, 1853 Drove three miles beyond the sink to the edge of the great desert and laid by to prepare for crossing the desert which is 40 miles without water or feed. The Great Bone Yard for worn out cattle, where the poor creatures lie down and die almost within sight of their journeys end. We have now traveled 450 miles down this river which we could have traveled it in 310 miles at a time of low water. We now leave the river at the sink and start onto the desert. Three o clock P.M. we are now rolling out for the Carson River. THE LONG TOM! May 26, 1853 At sunrise we have halted 12 miles from Carson river having traveled 29 miles since three o clock yesterday, 11 o clock [sic] and 20 minutes. We are now on Carson River, and have made the Riffle and crossed the great desert and are all alive which is better than many others have done, for we found some forty graves at this edge of those who had died, beside a great many on the desert, poor fellows. They have died within 60 miles of where gold has been dug. There are log cable chains enough on this desert to reach from Columbus to Cleavland [sic] via the Rail road, and dead cattle, horses, and mules, old wagons and irons of every description to build a turn pike the same distance. I saw whole teams of three and four yoke of cattle yoked and [illegible word] chained together that had struggled on for two thousand miles and here had lain down to rest and appeared to have fallen asleep, and had not awoke till the sand had drifted on their legs in such large piles that they could not wake to raise and had lain there ever since and dried up. I swung my ox whip over them and hallowed to them but all to no effect and indeed I don t think any thing will ever induce them to make an effort to get up til Gabril shall stand one foot on the little lake at the sink of the Humbolt and one foot on the desert and blows his horn to rise out of their sandy beds. My friend Taylor found the grave of a cousin on the desert. Taylor and myself with two others left the train at 3 o clock and traveled on foot. We traveled 15 miles and halted at sunset, built a little fire on the river bank and got ourselves some supper. After supper we extinguished our fire and traveled three miles farther for safety from the Indians, and then laid down to sleep with nothing but our blankets and the heavens over us and all slept soundly all night through we did not consider it safe on account of the Indians being troublesome in this part of the country, but we had not slept in thirty hours and had walked all that time. My Ohio friends would think these hard times. Well Jordon am a hard road to Travel. May 27, 1853 Awoke early this morning much rested, and unmolested by the Indians. We walked 30 miles today 26 of which was a desert. We laid ourselves down as usual on the ground and slept soundly. May 28, 1853 After walking 5 miles this morning we reached the summit of a high hill and looked down on a hundred miners who were diging [sic] gold in Gold Canyon Carson Valley. We raised a shout and was answered by the miners below. We are the first who have reached this place this season across the plains. We are yet 150 miles from the mines in Cal. on the other side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is now 14 months and 11 days since I left home and today for the first time I have seen gold dug from the earth. My friend Taylor and I are as well pleased as though we had just got home with our fortunes. We have bought ourselves a Long-Tom, expect soon to t--- some thing or get t----ed the darndest. We can t cross the mountains for a week on account of the snow. We intend to go on as soon as we can. May 29, 1853 Resting a little today which we very much need, after so long and tedious a trip. May 30, 1853 Took ourselves a claim and commenced mining on our own hook. G. King. May 31, 1853 Mining again today, had very little success yesterday and a poor prospect today. June 1, 1853 Mining as usual. June 2, 1853 Working in our claim today. June 3, 1853 Made $4 to the hand, or man. Sold our Tom to some green horns (we call ourselves miners) and got $12 more than we gave for it and tomorrow we resume our journey for the other side of the mountains. June 4, 1853 Started this morning early traveled thirty miles and encamped for the night. June 5, 1853 Crossed the first sumit [sic] of the Sierra Nevada mountains and encamped on the shore of Lake Bigler, a beautiful lake situated between the two sumits of the mountains and is ten miles long and 3 miles wide. June 6, 1853 Crossed the second sumit early this morning. Snow several feet deep and hard enough to bear a male. We are now in Cal. and descending the western slope towards the Pacific Ocean. Saw any amount of grisly [sic] bear tracks in the snow during the day, traveled 20 miles and Taylor and I got lost and had to lay out and neither of us knew the other was lost till next morning. June 7, 1853 Started early this morning and traveled 25 miles and encamped within 4 miles of Hang Town, the first mining Town on the emigrant road. June 8, 1853 Moved on into town, and had the good fortune to hire in a sawmill at $75 per month and commenced at noon the same day. Worked 5 days, and left thinking I could do better and went to mining. Made $10.50 the first day. * The G.W. King journal ends here.

5 VOLUME 25, ISSUE 1 THE PASTFINDER PAGE 5 In Memoriam CORN-HOG REDUCTION CONTRACT STATEMENTS FOR ORANGE TWP. BARB MIDLAM The Ashland County Chapter OGS has lost two longtime members recently. Barbara Jean Midlam, 79, of Ashland died on Friday, Nov. 4, 2005, at Brethren Care Village. She was born in Marion OH to Ray E. Blue and his wife Irma Ackley. Her husband, Paul Jim Midlam, and four children survive. Selected genealogical attributes quoted from her Ashland Times Gazette obituary include member of the DAR, Capt. Hendricks Chapter, Marion; Marion Area Genealogical Society, charter member; Ashland County Genealogical Society; Ohio Genealogical Society; First Families of Ohio; Marion County Historical Society, charter member; Ashland County Historical Society; Ohio Blue Reunion, lecturer and researcher; and the National Blue Association, researcher and writer. Memorial services were held at the Savannah United Methodist Church with burial at the Marion Cemetery in Marion. ETHEL SNYDER Ethel Leone Baldner Snyder, 85, of Perrysville, died on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2005, at her home of Lou Gehrig s Disease. She was born in Green Twp., Ashland Co on Jan. 28, 1920, the daughter of G. Frank Baldner and his wife Sadie Heffelfinger. Ethel started her career as a practical nurse in Loudonville and then went to work for the Flxible Company. On 24 Oct 1944, she married the late Roger F. Snyder and moved to his farm on the Honey Creek Road (CR 775) south of Hayesville. Ethel was an active member of the Ashland Co Chapter OGS and helped organize reunion groups for the Sugar Grove and Chestnut Ridge schools. Her three children survive, Dan Snyder, Doris Keiser, and Mary Beth Maye. A son, Richard F. Snyder, is deceased. The funeral was held Nov. 26, 2005, at the Hayesville United Methodist Church with burial in the Vermillion Cemetery in that community. Byerly-Lindsey Funeral Home was in charge of the services. The new Clear Creek Township Research Aid on page 61 repeats a mistake made on page 189 in the Ashland Counties Cemeteries book of It was understandable, as adjoining plots in the Savannah cemetery have large monuments with the surnames HARTMAN and FRIZZELL, with only the given names and dates on smaller stones, but Sarah A., , and Levi O., , are HARTMAN, not FRIZZELL. They are my grandparents. Other misreadings in the earlier Ashland County Cemeteries book that I have knowledge of are: on page 195 in Nova cemetery, Eli FAST s dates should be Sept. 6, 1811 Sept. 11, 1874, not Sept. 11, 1874 Sept. 6, 1911; on page 144 in the Erb-Patterson cemetery, the age for Anna Marie BAUER, weib von Johannes HARTMAN, should be 49, not 19, and STARB should not be with the name it is the German word for died ; on page 212, in Brubaker/Whisler cemetery, rather than GEORGE as the surname, it should be ALBERT, George and Elizabeth; and on page 218 in Crouse cemetery, the age for Catherine MASON should be 69, not 49.
