Ohio Archaeological and Historical Publications
Volume I

The Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society produced a series of books beginning in the late 1800s that was a yearly compilation of its quarterly booklets. Each yearly book contains a wide variety of topics and information concerning historical, archaeological and biographical for Ohio. These volumes are of the utmost value and interest, containing articles, essays and papers by leading authorities - most of which material was prepared solely for the Society and which does not exist and cannot be obtained outside the works of the Society

This old book is complete within itself. The topics in the book are covered in depth and the articles are complete. The book covers a wide spectrum of Ohio history subjects. To give you an idea of the full depth of the book, I've expanded the table of contents to help genealogists and historians understand the contents better. These books are such a 'deep well' of information; a general description wouldn't be fair to historians and genealogists who are usually looking for specific information. Feel free to e-mail questions.
This old Ohio history archaeology book is packed with history and genealogy.
It is complete within itself.

Truth is not only stranger than fiction, but often sadder than the grimmest fancy can portray. Such is the story of Harman Blennerhassett. Harman Blennerhassett was born circa 1767 in Hampshire, England. He graduated from Trinity College and then became a lawyer. Blennerhassett's father died in 1796, leaving his son a fortune in excess of 100,000 dollars. He married the daughter of the governor of the Island of Man, and the couple moved to the United States in 1797. That winter, the Blennerhassetts moved to Marietta, Ohio, where they purchased 174 acres of land on an island in the Ohio River.

Four years later he began to write occasionally for the press, and edited the "Backwoodsman," at Xenia, Ohio, in 1830 the "Cincinnati Mirror," in 1831, to which he contributed a number of prose tales and poems that attracted much attention. "The Hesperian" A Monthly Miscellany of General Literature," while also engaged in the management of the Columbus "Ohio State Journal," in 1838; and in 1839 became associate editor of the Cincinnati Gazette, maintaining that connection until 1850.

Western Land Policy of the British Government from 1763 to 1775:
The facts presented show conclusively that in the years following the French war the Western policy of the British was not steady or consistent, but fitful and capricious; prompted by a solicitude for the Indian that was partly feigned, and partly by a growing jealously of the shore colonies.
