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."
