CD: A History and Biographical Cyclopedia of Butler County, Ohio, With Illustrations And Sketches Of Its Representative Men And Pioneers - Western Biographical Publishing Co. "At An Age When Antiquaries Were Uncommon, And Few Facilities Were Afforded Of Pursuing Their Investigations, James Mcbride Was Gathering From The Recollection Of Those Who Preceded Him Accounts Of Their Adventures With The Indians, In Wayne's And St. Clair's Armies, And As Settlers Along The Banks Of The Miami. These Narratives Were Minute And Full; They Were Derived From Contemporaries Who Had Themselves Been Concerned In These Affairs. They Were Revised And Compared With Other Relations, And They Were Set Down With A Desire To Have Nothing But The Truth Exhibited-A Quality Rare At Any Age Or In Any Country, But…The Distinguishing Feature Of Mcbride's Mind. Next To These In Value Were The Newspapers Preserved By The Daughters Of C. K. Smith, And Those To Be Found In The Auditor's Office. Although The Files Are Not Complete, They Afford A Vast Repertory Of Information, Extending From 1820 Down To The Present Day. In The Records Of The County, Kept In The Various Public Offices, Are Documents Bearing On Many Phases Of Frontier Life, And It Is To These Sources The Historian Must Chiefly Resort." This History Also Presents The History Of Each Township Within The County Including Hamilton, Reily, Morgan, Hanover, Ross, Fairfield, Liberty, Oxford, St. Clair, Milford, Union, Madison, Wayne, Lemon. Numerous Biographies And Illustrations Highlight The Historical Text. (1882), 2008, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe, v6, PC and Mac, 711 pp. 101-CD2819 ISBN: 0788428195
