PREFACE.

TO THE LIVING PIONEERS AND THEIR DESCENDANTS, OF FAYETTE COUNTY.
     The Author has spent several months in constant travel and search, and taken unwearied pains, in collecting the names and records in the illustrious Pioneers, who made their homes in Fayette County.  It has involved considerable time, expense, labor and difficulties.  Visiting all the most noted places, mounds, camps, cliffs,, etc., in the county, he has endeavored to portray the toils, hardships and privations of a pioneer life, when nothing but dense forests, inhabited only by Indians and wild beasts; when the only habitation was the rude log cabin; when the scream of the panther, the howl of the wolf, the hum of wild bees, and the war song of the savages constituted the music of the wilderness.  Many of them lived to see fruitful fields spring up in the forest, and the wilderness melt away before the tide of industry.
     "Their names should be enrolled on History's page,
     To the perused by each succeeding age."

WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE,

The county-seat, is a flourishing business place, containing about 3,000 inhabitants - see business directory.  The county has about 300 miles of turnpikes, all directly or indirectly running into the county seat.  The Zanesville & Wilmington Railroad passes through Washington.
