True Tales About Ohio
(Concluded from page 1)
Swamp region, it was believed to
have been at one time lake bottom.
All through the Maumee valley dis
tinct outlines of former beaches could
be traced and 100 years ago bore
names such as “Sand Ridge,” Oak
Ridge” and Sugar Ridge.”
The region was swampy, tangled
and virtually a jungle filled with wild
life of every kind.
There is the story of David Mur
phy, the first white man to settle
among the Ottawa Indians there. In
1824 Murphy, with his wife and
family, floated down Blanchard’s
Fork from Fort Findlay in a barn
canoe. He went three miles up the
Auglaize River and by a bayou there
built a pole cabin.
Soon the family’s provisions were
exhausted and Murphy even was out
of rifle balls. Game was abundant but
there was no way to kill it other than
snaring the very small animals.
One day, fed up on fish and hungry
for red meat, Murphy sat watching
a bear on a lower limb of a big beech
tree, sleepily slapping at flies. It was
potential red meat but there was
nothing the settler could do about
it.
Then Murphy remembered firing
a rifle ball into a tree back in the
forest weeks before. He went into the
woods, hunted up the tree and dug
out the bullet. Remelting it, he loaded
his gun and hurried to the bear tree.
The bear still was there.

Kalida 100 Years Ago
As to Editor Knapp and his county
seat “Vulture.” Kalida, laid out in
1834 and named from a Greek word
meaning “beautiful,” was the seat of
Putnam County until its courthouse
burned in 1866. One hundred ye^rs
ago it had four stores, a Methodist
log church, the Venture printing plant
and 36 homes mostly log cabins.
When the county was formed and
Kalida was laid out, Ottawa was only

to stab to death “Indian Tom,” who
had slain his preditessor. Tried for
murder by the tribe, Tom was sen
tenced to death and the new chief
named as his executioner. Not being
much of an executioner, Pee Donquet
stabbed away a few times with little
effect. “You’re a damn poor chief—
don’t know how to kill a man,” Tom
told him. Then, “Here, stab there,”
and Tom laid his hand over his left
breast. Pee Donquet stabbed there and
Tom fell dead.
Eileen Moser Wed
To Camilious Knott
In an impressive ceremony at St.
Anthony’s church in Columbus
Grove, on Thursday, July 8, Miss
Eileen Moser, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Harvey Moser, of Bluffton, be
came the bride of Camilious Knott,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Knott,
of Columbus Grove.
Officiating at the marriage was
Rev. Hoffman, an uncle of the
groom.
For the ceremony the iride wore
a white organdy fashioned gown
with graceful train, lace yoke, but
tons down the front, and long lace
mitts to match the yoke. Earrings

Best 1nan was Paul Knott, of
Lima and ushers were Cornelius
Knott, Jr., Columbus Grove, and
Harvey Moser, Jr., Bluffton, broth
ers of the bride and groom.
Preceding the vows, music for the
ceremony included “Ave Maria” and
“On This Day, Oh, Beautiful Moth
er." The church was decorated with
garden flowers.
A wedding dinner was served at
the home of the bride’s parents, fol
lowing which the couple left on a
trip to Michigan. They will reside
in Lima where Mrs. Knott is assist

Although annual farm income has
been at record levels for several years,
the total U. S. farm mortgage debt
increased approximately 2 per cent
in 1946 and in 1947 and the total now
is about $4,800,000. The mortgage
debt at the end of 1945 was the low
est in 32 years. Past economic history
does not indicate that farm mort
gages incurred in times of high prices
are paid easily when price levels de
cline nor that interest charges are
decreased as farm income goes down.
A very pretty home wedding was

Mrs. John Fett when their oldest
