Several of the following brief sketches are the only biographies ever given to the public of their subjects. If some of them appear meager, it should be remembered that the facts stated in the most imperfect sketches were only obtained after patient research. It is believed that these sketches will be found to possess something more than a local interest. The subjects were men who either took a prominent part in the early settlement of the Miami country, or participated in the early conflicts with the Indians or in the last war with England, or were prominent in civil affairs. Some of them were men of national renown, of whom no complete biographies have ever been published. To the writer, the preparation of this chapter, which is intended to preserve the names and to record the services of some of the departed worthies of a county which, in its early history at least, was celebrated for the number of its great men, has been a labor of love.
