Shared note

Tradition says that Jacob was the first man to drive a four-horse tea m into Ohio. They were said to have brought their cattle and it is as sumed that fresh meat was obtained from wild game and fresh fish. It i s also safe to assume that their "highways" were little more than Indi an Trails or rutty tracks made by others who had traveled Westward bef ore them. They lived in their wagon until a log cabin could be constru cted and in which they lived until a new home was built. The new hom e was quite an imposing structure, built of brick, molded and burnt o n the farm. It had two stories with eight rooms in the main section an d a large addition for a kitchen. It had two spacious hallways, a larg e garret and a good cellar.
