The general history begins with the Native American occupation of Ohio and goes through 1805. The county history is carried through the 1860s. Particular attention is given to the history of the town and township of Athens, but the county’s other townships are also discussed to varying degrees: Alexander, Ames, Bern, Canaan, Carthage, Dover, Lee, Lodi, Rome, Trimble, Troy, Waterloo, and York. Personal and biographical sketches are scattered throughout and generally run about a paragraph in length. Rosters give the names of local officials, Revolutionary soldiers, and owners of the first land lots. Brief recollections from the inhabitants lace the various chapters and longer reminiscences by Dr. Chauncey F. Perkins appear in an appendix. A rare and valuable volume. W046 ISBN# 0-7884-0582-9
