Dear Friends:



One area of research qpen to us and often forgotten in our rush to research in courthouses, census records, reference books, etc. are original manuscripts. These records are made up of original papers and records dealing with all sorts of old records: diaries, journals, letters, legal papers, memoires, etc. and are found in local libraries, museums and archives. Indexes for such records are often printed in book form, where they are abstracted into paragraphs to give you an idea of what they contain. Two examples are books that have been published on the manuscripts in Western Reserve Historical Society and Ohio Histroical libraries. A most fascinating collection on this area of Ohio is to be found in THE DAPPER PAPERS. The originals are in the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. Lyman-E. Draper---TT818-1891) loved this country's history and, as a young adult, began to write pioneers asking them for remininscences about life on the frontier. By 1843 he had started to travel through the eastern and middle states gathering oral history from the early settlers. He also started collecting papers of early explorers, Indian fighters and settlers, such as: Daniel Boone Papers, George Rogers Clark Papers, The Si,mon Kenton Papers, The Frontier War Papers, Pittsburgh and Northwest Virginia Papers (W. VA. today), The Brady and Wetzel Papers (Indian fighters), and Draper's Biographical Sketches, Historical Miscellaneous and Memoranda Books. These name only a part of the collection which has been microfilmed and are to be found in various libraries in Ohio. My favorite place to view them is at the Allen County Library in Ft. Wayne, IN, where they make.positive copies. Lyman Draper came through central Ohio during the middle o~ the 19th century and interviewed Richland and Crawford County pioneers, viz: John Cuppy, near Savannah, Ashland Co., Ohio, Dec. 7 & 8, 1860 Jesse Edgington, Richland Co., Ohio, Dec. 11 & 12, 1860 John Cox, near Shelby, Ohio, Dec. 16 & 17, 1860 Gen. Joseph Ga _ ,Shelby, Ohio, Dec. 17 & 18, 1860 Mrs. Cline, Rome village, Richland Co., Ohio, dlo George Faulks, Dec. 16 & 17, 1860 Hugh McGuire, Ashland Co., Ohio . One of the families mentioned was that of Abraham Cuppy, listing his children: Series 5, Vol. 16, p 264. Jun 15 1787 Elizabeth (Mrs. Noble) Sep 26 1789 Margaret (Mrs. Hoffman) Ashland, ohio May 10 1791 Sarah (3 times married) (dead) Ann (dead) Jul 4 1793 Apr 7 1797 John (in Illinois, Tonika) Apr 7 1797 Mary twin May 17 1799 William (dead) continued next page 13

President's Message continued Abram - near Mt. Pleasant, Jefferson Co., Ohio Feb 26 1802 Perrin & Rachael (dead) twins Apr 5 1804 You will need an index to determine what to research. One of the best may be hard to find: Descriptive 'List of Manuscript Collections of the ~ .Q..f. Wisconsin, edited by Reuben Gold Thwaites, pub. Madison, 1906. Also, Guide !.Q. the Draper Manuscripts, Josephine 'L. Harper. Microfilm may be obtained on interlibrary loan from the state Historical society of Wisconsin in Madison. Ask your reference librarian. Mary Jane Henney, President See you at the 1986 NGS conference in the States - hosted by the Ohio Genealogical Society. Please stop at the Richland County display in the Ohio Room and register your name and the surnames you are researching,. If you are not registered, there is still time, don't miss out May 28-31, 1986 in Columbus, Ohio. Send for info to oGS, P.O. Box 2625, Mansfield, OH 44904. We shall have our Richland County books for sale at that time.


EDITORS MESSAGE I would like to talk about a very important issue in Richland County and that is the bond issue for our county and branch libraries that will be on the May 6 ballot. lhere is no need for me to ask our members how many hours they have spent or are spending in libraries throughout our area. You realize how essential they are in doing our genealogical research. I know myself, that a~ soon as I was able to read, the library was the most fascinating place to me and still is as an adult. Many times my trusty books have saved the day, keeping me calm and collected through long delays while I was waiting for children at school, sitting in doctor's offices or waiting for other appointments,and coming from a railroad town, waiting on long, long trains at crossings. It always seemed the better the story, the shorter the train! We have a tendency to forget all the other services that our libraries perform for our communities beside providing books to read. Some services are records, films, childrens programs, pre-school story hours, voter registration, career information, photo copy machine, microfilm reader/printer, reference assistance, applications for Golden Buckeye Cards, talks to groups, community bulletin board, book delivery to housebond individuals and meeting rooms available to community groups. Our libraries can provide us with knowledge, entertainment and relaxation, education, and all at a very low, low cost to us. So, please support your libraries, be it city, county state or national. They are great presevers of our past!!!! Carolyn J. Heydinger, Editor

The May meeting will be youth night and our program will feature the winners of the Ohio Genealogical Essay Contest Bnd the 4-H Genealogical Project winners.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU: Danja has ~eworked our -masthead that we use on the first page of our newsletter. We appreciate her artistic ability and I know I would be lost without it.


COVENTION TIME: There is still time to get reservations in for the convention for a one day session. If. you would like to go for just one day, write to NGS CONFERENCE, P.O. Box 2625, Mansfield, OH 44906.


MAILBOX: I have received a very nice letter from the Plymouth Adviser offering their help to people looking for their ancestors. They have bound volumes of the ~ewspaper dating back to 1926. The obituaries have a lot of extra information because th prior owners knew most of the people in the are and could add alot of extra facts about the families. There are alot of stories on the Civil War veterans as they passed away and their history was included in their obituaries. Maybe one of our members who live in Plymouth would like to give us a hand and abstract some of these obituaries and newssotries for the newletter. Again our thanks to Mrs. Elizabeth Paddock for bringing this to our attention. Please do not call them but drop by and they wi11 help you in the office.


The nice thing about memories is that they don't spoil no matter how long you keep them.


"Happy is the man who recalls his ancestors with pride,who treasures the story of their greatness; tells the tales of their heroic lives; and with joy too full for speech, realizes that fate has linked him with a race of goodly men." By Goethe

Portrait s

~iiiii ================================

We will be having a two-part family portrait running in the next two issues of the Past finder. Part 1 will be in this issue and is an overall review of the family and, the events that happened after the parents death. In the next issue we will run the original ~and map, poem,and story written by John Patterson Jr . .dQ!:J!:! PATTERSON John Patterson purchased 174 acres in Section 28 and 29, Mifflin Twp: from Andrew Donaldson on Apr. 11, 1836. The Crimson Road farm and a 160 acre tract in Crawford County represented the entire holdings of this Pennsylvania farmer. His life in Richland County was brief and uneventful, and he died July 15, 1842, aged 62 years. Then the fun begins! John Patterson did leave a will (vol. III, p. 557) in which he gave his Crawford County land to his sons, Ebenezer, Alexander, David, and William; however, he bequeathed his Crimson road farm to his wife Anna and to all the other children -- equally -except for daughter Jane Richey (my ancestor), who received some books from the library. John Patterson Jr. petitioned the court (Vol. 9, p 700) Jan, 22, 1853 to divide the tract, and the notice of the coming partition was published in the Shield and Banner later that month and in five succeeding issues. The court responded during their March Term 1853 (Journal 19, p. 466) meeting with a sketch showing their decision. 3/7 share was alloted to John Patterson Jr., 1/7 to Joseph B. Patterson, 1/7 to Margaret Ann Patterson, 1/7 to Susannah Patterson, and 1/14 each to grandchildren Mary Ann and Hannah Jane Andrews through guardian James Reitt, all subject to the dower of the widow. John Patterson Jr. and his wife Sarah Ann Sheriff remained on the Crimson Road farm for several years moving in 1862 to Newville where they had an interest in a woolen mill. Their son, John Franklin ~atterson, born Oct. 19, 1853, wrote a poem about his primi~ tive log birthplace in 1934, and the drawing from the common pleas partition suit and the verses sescribing the very same home compliment each other perfectly. Children of John and Anna Patterson: 1. Ebenezer, b ca 1812 PA, m 31 Mar 1841 Richland Co. to Elizabeth Ohler, sold Mifflin Twp. land in 1866 and moved on. 2. Jane, b 13 Dec. 18.14 PA, d 18 Mat. 1894 Mansfield, m 15 Sept. 1836 Mansfield to Henderson Richeyj lived in Mansfield. 3.

Submitted by Thomas Stephen Neel On the following page we have printed as best we can, the drawing of the cabin and property as it appears in the courtnouse records. In the next issue (hopefully in June) we will be printing the second part of our family portrait on John Patterson and family, and it will consist of the original poem that John Patterson Jr. wrote about his log cabin home and a narrative on what life was like in this area. 18

MY FAMILY TREE I started out at first to climb a puny, little tree. It seed a tiny twig at first: For there was only me. My sisters and my brother; Then Dad said I should add his folks, His Father and his Mother. The list has grown down thru the years, And now my family line; Seems to extend a mile or more, At eight thousand ninety-nine. And still it keeps on growing By twos and threes each day, So where the line will finally end I'm at a loss to say. But, if and when, the end is reached, As "end" all good things must, I will not be around to tell; For I'll be merely dust. Composed Dec 8, 1985 by Doris L. Sweeny, a member of Carroll Co. Genealogical Society.
