Notes for Benjamin Schmachtenberger:

BRYAN AS IT APPEARED FIFTYBRYAN AS IT APPEARED FIFTY-FOUR YEARS AGO

From The Bryan Democrat, Bryan, Ohio, Thursday, March 31, 1904

________

Following is a Brief Description of the Village as it is Remembered by John

CONNIN Who Came Here with His Father on the 7th. of July, 1849.

_______

My father and his family moved from Wyandot county, Ohio to Bryan, Williams

county in 1849. We landed at Williams Center on the 6th. day of July, on

Saturday, and stayed all night, and on Sunday morning my father and myself went

over to Bryan four miles from Center. On our way to Bryan we passed quite a

number of clearings in progress. a great deal of the work was in rolling logs in

large heaps as so to burn, and in those heaps were popular logs that would

measure five to six feet across and twelve to fiftten feet long and also mant

cherry and walnut logs. Perhaps one of those logs at the present time would

bring from $50 to $1000.

After we got as far as Jacob BOWMAN's mill located on Lick Creek east and south

of George RUFF's house we followed the woods road running zig-zag thru the

forest and struck the town of Bryan, so as to see it, about where HARRINGTON's

blacksmith shop now is, there was a charcoal pit and blacksmith shop run by John

TOMSON. This pit would cover about fifty feet in diameter. The wood from which

the charcoal was produced was set on end and tapered to the top; then all was

covered with straw and dirt, set on fire and burnt until all was charred. When

we came opposite the shop we could see the town luming up. My father's object in

coming to Bryan was to procure a place to move into but failed to get a house.

Finally, we procured a house in the country, one mile east of town, on what is

now the HICKOX farm. It was a log cabin. Perhaps many yet remember the cabin., I

shall never forget the place while I live. the house was full of fleas. If you

ever had fleas you will pity me. Here is a little incident that happened while

we lived in that cabin. One night about midnight, my father heard quite a noise

over head, the floor being clap-boards laid on loose. My father got frightened

and called to me to get my gun and I said to him that the gun was not loaded.

The country being so new, he supposed he was going to be robbed. The noise was

made by a cat.

Father and myself cut and hauled logs and built a log cabin before we could move

into Bryan. Now as I remember Bryan 54 years ago, commencing on the east side of

the square was a two story frame hotel, run by Daniel LANGEL, north, on the next

lot was a one and half story frame store room, dry goods, owned by William YATES

and north of the store was a two story log house owned by the same party, the

corner lot was vacant. On the north side of the square was the log jail where

the sheriff of Williams county hung TYLER. The scaffold and lumber was still

there when I came here. TYLER had kiled a child near West Unity in 1848 and was

hung February 1849. On the northwest corner was a one story frame house occupied

by William McCANE, auditor of Williams county.

On west, on High street, on the north side was a two story frame house and on

the same lot a one and a half story frame shop owned by Jacob OVER, on the next

lot west a one story cabin shop and on the corner where DILLMAN's place is, was

a two story frame house owned by Joseph KOFFMAN. Across the street south was a

two story frame occupied by John SADORIS, a dwelling and wagon shop. East on the

same street a one story log house and shop cabinet occupied by FULTON. On the

northwest corner of the square one and half story frame occupied by George

ARNOLD. Next south one story cabin occupied by Mrs. FURR and her daughter. Next

south two story log house occupied by Sam KENT; next south two story new frame

owned by BLAKESLEE, now by NEWCOMER and GILLIS. On the southwest corner of the

square was a two story frame occupied as a store room and dwelling by Charles

CASE. South on Lynn street, west side, a one story log cabin, next south a one

and a half story log cabin occupied by GILLSON; next south a two story log house

occupied by Jacob YOUSE, across the street on the east side was a log house and

log shop used as a wagon shop, occupied by Volney CROCKER. North on same street

was a one and one half story log house occupied by Mrs. PEOPLES.

On the south side of the square was a log cabin where they kept TYLER's body in

a barrel of whisky; next east a log cabin and frame shop occupied by KNOSKE, a

tailor. South on Main street a two story log house used a tannery and shoe shop,

next south a 12x12 one story frame stood where Chris SHIFFLER now lives. One

east side of the street, on H. D. KING's lot a two story log house stood

occupied by SCHMACHTENBERGER. North on the corner of the same lot was a two

story frame store and dwelling occupied by I. WILL. On the corner where

GRASSER's dwelling now is, stood a log cabin occupied by Charles YOUNG. South of

the CHRISTMAN House was a story and a half frame house occupied by A. J.

TRESSLER as post-office and dwelling. At that time we used foolscap paper for

writing lettersand sealed the envelopes with red sealing wafers. Postage five

cents.

On east High street, north side, two lots from the public square was a log cabin

occupied by Ben KENT; next east a log cabin; next west of  BOWERSOX dwelling was

a two story frame and east of this house a tannery owned by A. M. BOWLS. Where

the green-house now stands was a story and a half frame occupied by Doc. John

PAUL. On the lot now owned by Mrs. WALT was a log cabin occupied by J. K. MORROW

and his mother. On the lot that C. S. ROE now owns was a log cabin occupied by

John KOFFMAN, the man that killed a deer while hoeing beans. The deer jumped

into his garden and he ran the deer into a snow bank and killed it with a hoe.

North of KOFFMAN's was an ashery where they made black salts and where they

boiled the flesh of TYLER's bones. On the northeast corner of the square, what

was called CARTER's corner, stood a two story frame occupied by Chauncey MADISON

as a hotel.

There were two hotels in Bryan at that time. There was a great deal of travel by

movers and parties looking for land. There was at that time a plank road company

organized to run a road from Ft. Wayne to Maumee thru Bryan. The company built a

saw mill here to saw plank for the road and built part of  the road thru Bryan

but the company finally broke up and the road fell thru. The mill was built a

little northwest of the brewery. The same frame burnt fir J. BALL a short time

ago. The town was in a bad shape to improve. It was surrounded by speculators

who unreasonably advanced the price of land even up to the original plat. By

mutual consent quite a number of the citizens formed a pioneer company and began

a cut and slash of the best timber until the speculators were compelled to sell.

We agreed to stand by each other if caught cutting timber out. Urie and myself

went into the woods and cut and had hauled to mill enough of logs and timber to

build a two room store house. We took the job for $800 to furnish all and

deliver keys to Jacob BOYERS. When and after we hauled a lot of popular logs and

had them sawed rady to haul, John KOFFMAN got a team and hauled the lumber to

his house from the mill. But John liked to sleep and while he slept we got the

teams enough to load and haul the lumber to where we intended to build a kiln to

dry the lumber. We had the lumber stacked by morning and Johnny said not a word

about the lumber. John was agent for the land. There were some of those logs

that would perhaps bring fifty dollars at the present time.

The county was almost bankrupt. County orders were worth only fifty cents on the

dollar. The transportation was by wagon to Defiance. That was the trading point.

David RODKEY ran a wagon train from Bryan to Defiance. There were no gravel

roads then. The roads were cut thru the woods and very often changed to some

better place. Teaming was all done with oxen. Horse teams were scarce. A two

horse carriage driven into town would have been as great a curiosity as Buffalo

Bills Show. There was in town at the time I came here two buggies more like our

wagons at the present time. If the young people wished to go to any meeting off

at a distance they would go in a two horse wagon, boards laid across the bed for

seats.

The country around Bryan was very wild. We could hear the wolves howl at night.

I remember one night going home from town, I think there was church that night,

and it was very dark. The road ran thru the woods and angled from the corner

where the Brethren church now stands. The timber commenced there and woods all

the way. When I came to what was called CROCKERs Bridge my horse became

frightened, whirled and ran back quite a ways before I could get him stopped. I

want to say my hair stood on end. He did the same thing the second time but I

finally got him to go across the bridge. Bear were often seen in the woods and

at night when in bed you could hear the wolves howl. Deer were plenty. you could

buy venison, two hind quarters, called venison saddle, for 50 cents, fore

quarters 25 cents.

Bryan in 1849 was a very small town. The question of moving the county seat was

being agitated and made lots a dull sale. Lote around the square sold for $50

and $75. As I remember, the corner where the First National Bank stand, sold for

$75. In 1849 there were in Bryan three attorneys, two doctors, three department

stores, six mechanics, three carpenters, one tailor, one tinner and one

shoemaker. BLAKESLEY, Charles CASS and E. FOSTER were attorneys. J. DOBES was

called an attorney, but was more a speculator than anything else. BLAKESLEY was

learned man but not very popular as a pleader at the bar. FOSTER was not good

counsel but in court cases was much sought after. Two doctors, John PAUL and

Thomas P. KENT. PAUL was a good doctor, had very good success. BLAKESLEY was a

very peculiar man. Bought all of his wood four foot long and burnt it the whole

length. He kept an old chair to rest ine end on while the other end burnt. At

one time I went to see him in his office and there was a pole sticking out of

the door of his office. As the end of the pole burnt off he would shove it into

the stove. He never bought any tobacco but would pick up stubs of cigars and

chew them.

We had no church building. Used the school house for meetings. The Methodists

with but very few members were the only denomination in 1849. The town was

surrounded by timber. Timber came up to where Wm. AUNGST resides and up to the

BOWERSOX dwelling. GRASSERs lot was the last cleared spot north; on the west,

WILLIAMS Hotel. No road ran north. the r oad from West Unity to Center angled

thru the court yard close to the court house. The road south on Main street ran

south a mile then angled to the west until it struck the creek and followed its

bank to Ney. The road to Pulaski ran zig zag thru the woods. Oftimes some one

from Bryan would be called upon to take a team down the road to help some poor

mover out of a mud hole.

The county officers, in office in 1849 were William McCANE, auditor; GILLSON,

treasurer; Jacob YOUSE, recorder; John PAUL, clerk; Daniel LANGEL, sheriff;

James SHORTHILL, deputy sheriff; Jerry BEAVERS was constable of Pulaski

township. LANDIS from Defiance came over to Bryan. He was in debt to some one

and they got a attachment to serve on LANDIS and gave it to Jerry to serve but

in place of going to LANDIS, he served the papers on the horses. While he was

reading the papers to one of the horses the other whinnied. Jerry said to the

horse, "Keep-e, keep-e still, I got one for you to." There are but few of the

inhabitants left at this time. Seven people remain from 1849.

Wages at that time for common labor was 50 cents for a day. For carpenters $1.00

to $1.25 per day an board oneself. Produce was cheap. Wheat 40 cents, meat-pork

3 cents, beef 3 to 4 cents by the quarter, maple sugar 5 to 6 cents per pound.

Dry goods were high - muslin 10 and 15 cents, calico 10 and 15 cents. A pair of

calf boots cost from $6 to $9. Calf hide shoes for women, no fine shoes with

high heels, cost from $3 to $4. Our young ladies did not have any feathers in

their hats. Their head gear was a bonnet that looked like a covered wagon. The

young men and old wore better clothes than the ladies. Their hats were cold

stove pipe hats and would cost from $5 to $8. A common man's suit would cost him

$45. Such were the olden times.

Notes for Mary Polly Newman:

I found records that William married Polly Newman in 1846. On the census from 1850 and from my grandmother's information, Eliza's mother is listed as Mary. I found a genealogy that had this citation about one of their family members:

 

[967.] MARY alias POLLY BALLOU6, Daniel5, James4, James3, James2, Maturin1; b. in Richmond, N. H., May 3, 1791; m. Eliphalet Hicks, pedigree and birth-date not given; cer. in Homer, Cortland Co., N.
