The following soldiers whose regiments and companies were not reported were also accredited to Wyandot county:

G. B. Kelley, D. H. Walton, James F. Rich, I. B. Cross, P. Brashares, Page Blackburn, Peter Parsell, S. C. Anderson, W. S. Bowers, Martin Snyder, J. A.

Beam, James Miller.

Messrs. J. G. Roberts, Samuel H. Hunt, John D. Sears, S. H. White and T. E. Grisell, composed the county military committee during the last years of the war. That from 1861 to 1865 inclusive, the county received credit for 1,545 men, of whom only nineteen were drafted. That the total of all quotas called for amounted to 1,550; thus a deficit of five men was marked against the county at the close. However, thirtyfive of the sixteen thousand non-enlisted “Squirrel Hunters” who hastened toward Cincinnati in August and September, 1862, at the time that city was threatened by the rebel forces under Kirby Smith—were Wyandot county men.

The correctness of the foregoing roster is vouched for by Gen. I. M. Kirby.


Any occupation prospers in proportion to the interest taken in it by its members, and this interest is heightened by an exchange of views. This feeling among prominent agriculturists led to the formation of agricultural societies, at first by counties, then districts and lastly by states.

The Ohio State Board of Agriculture was organized by an act of the legislature, passed February 27, 1846. Since that time various amendments to the organic law have been passed from time to time, too numerous to mention here.

Later came the Grange movement, and still more recently the agricultural schools. In many parts of Ohio these schools are being held with promising results. These schools besides their practical instructions do much toward inculcating a love for the farm. This can be done by making farming pay better, and this in turn, can be accomplished by a careful study of the business—for it is a business looking to the improvement of the soil, the stock, the grain and the grass crops. Man has always been trying to improve upon nature, and no where can he make wise improvements pay such great financial returns in proportion to the effort put forth, as those made upon the farm. This is the great lesson which the agricultural societies and agricultural colleges teach.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture is doing much supplementary work, such as the running of agricultural and fruit trains, which do much to arouse greater interest in these subjects. The interest in farmers' institutes is also increasing, and four may now be held in each county per year.

There is no one class which should appreciate a daily mail more than the farmer, for no one should require a wider range of knowledge nor keep better posted in market reports. Besides the rural mail delivery system being a great business advantage to the farmer, it means even more to the social life on the farm, for the daily arrival of mail encourages reading, lightens the long winter evenings and brightens the long working days. The grown-up children stay at home more readily and the home itself is in every way made happier, for the family is in touch with the rest of the world.
