Local History And Genealogy Abstracts From Marion, Indiana Newspapers, 1876-1880 - Ralph D. Kirkpatrick. A handful of War of 1812 veterans who settled in Grant County still survived in the late 1870s. The only battle of that war fought in Grant County was the Battle of Mississinewa, which is still commemorated by an annual reenactment. The Civil War was still fresh in the memory of Grant County residents during the years covered by this book. Local soldiers who died during the war are listed and are remembered during ceremonies commemorating their sacrifices. Marriages, births and deaths are recorded, often in some detail. Local institutions, including churches and schools, continued to develop and their pastors, officers and members are often noted. These abstracts are presented alphabetically by surname. A maiden name index is a handy feature of this book.
