RECOLLECTIONS OF EARLY MIAMI COUNTY

as printed in the Troy Times

The accounts listed below were printed in the Troy Times (TT) during the 1800s. They come from settlers who came to what is now Miami County during the period 1796-1815 and describe life as these settlers lived it and the country as they found it. Some were first printed in 1839 and others in 1868. Some were reprinted at later times in another newspaper, The Buckeye. All these are available at the Local History Library in the microfilm collection. Some are also available  in manuscript (mss) files and scrapbooks. Please ask the staff for help.

Thanks to Terry Purke for this file.
