PREFACE

The element of Ohio embraced by means of this quantity has sustained inside of its confines males who've been admired within the background of the country, or even the state, for a century. The annals teem with the documents of robust and noble manhood, and, as Sumner has acknowledged, "the actual grandeur of countries is in these features which represent the greatness of the individual." the ultimate motives which form the fortunes of people and the destinies of States are usually an analogous. they're frequently distant and vague, and their impression scarcely perceived till glaringly declared by means of effects. That country is the best which produces the best and so much manly males and trustworthy girls; and the intrinsic security of a neighborhood relies no longer quite a bit upon tools as upon that standard improvement from the deep assets of which proceeds all that's worthwhile and everlasting in lifestyles. yet the sort of outcome won't consciously be reflected through the actors within the nice social drama. Pursuing every one his own reliable by way of exalted capability, they determine as a logical result.

The parts of luck in existence consist in either innate skill and backbone to excel. the place both is in need of, failure is nearly convinced within the end result. The examine of a winning existence, for this reason, serves either as a resource of knowledge and as a stimulus and encouragement to people who have the potential. As a tremendous lesson during this connection we might appropriately

quote Longfellow, who acknowledged: "We pass judgement on ourselves by way of what we suppose in a position to doing, whereas we pass judgement on others by way of what they've got already done." a loyal own background is a demonstration of the reality of this observation.

In this biographical background the editorial employees, in addition to the publishers, have absolutely discovered the significance of the duty. within the selection of the fabric there was a relentless goal to discriminate conscientiously in regard to the choice of matters. those that were in demand elements within the public, social and business improvement of the county were 'given due popularity so far as it's been attainable to safe the considered necessary information. Names necessary of perpetuation right here, it really is precise, have in numerous situations been passed over, both as a result of the apathy of these involved or the lack of the compilers to safe the data worthwhile for a symmetrical caricature; yet much more pains were taken to safe accuracy than have been promised within the prospectus. Works of this nature, hence, are extra trustworthy and whole than are the " ordinary " histories of a country.
