The first newspapers published in Marion, Grant County, Indiana, may have appeared as early as 1840. The earliest extant issue of a Marion newspaper is one from August 18, 1865. It is truly unfortunate that the newspapers published during the Civil War did not survive to tell us about day-to-day happenings. Men came in from the surrounding small farm clearings, forests and prairies to enlist in the State Volunteer Regiments that were formed to force the Confederate States back into the Union. Too many Grant County men and boys either left their bodies on bloody southern fields or they returned... View more info

Little has been published providing reliable data about Indiana pioneers prior to the first federal census in 1820. This book helps to fill that void. The Indiana Territory was formed in 1800 with the division of the Northwest Territory. At that time, Ohio's western boundary was the Greenville Treaty Line of 1795. When Ohio became a state in 1803, and its present western boundary was established, a wedge of land was ceded to the Indiana Territory from Ohio and named Dearborn County. It became known as the "Gore." The county seat at Lawrenceburg was the primary repository for records co... View more info

Indiana was a stopping-off place for countless pioneers on their way west to Illinois, Iowa, Kansas or Oregon. Some travelers paused only long enough to tend the sick and to bury their dead before hurrying westward while others, who could not stand the thought of burying and leaving their loved ones in strange territory, decided to stay and became the core of Hancock County's early settlements. In this book of tombstone inscriptions, 92 cemeteries are included, most of which are of the family, church and neighborhood variety; many family relationships are carved into these stones.
