PREFACE

THE

HE "Biographical Annals of Ohio" is the outcoine of efforts to

preserve in ready reference form the names and history of the

men who have served the State. In 1888-1892, Col. William A. Taylor, a well-known journalist, collected from official sources much of the matter which appears within these covers and published as a private enterprise “The Ohio Statesman and Hundred Year Book.". The General Assembly purchased and distributed an edition of 7,500 copies. In 1896-98 a revised edition under the name of the "Ohio Statesman and Annals of Progress” was prepared by Col. Taylor. The State through an act of the General Assembly purchased the manuscript and copyright of the work and printed for gratuitous distribution an edition of 9,500 copies.

In 1900-1901 another revision, prepared under the direction of the General Assembly by Mr. E. Howard Gilkey, was published under the name of the Hundred Year Book.

The Act of May 12, 1902, as amended April 19, 1904, contemplates the publication of a work of this character biennially under the name of "The Biographical Annals of Ohio.” In order that the series may be complete the matter heretofore published is reprinted in this volume covering the biographical history of Ohio from the formation of the Northwest Territory in 1787 to September 1, 1904.

The present compilers make no claim to originality or authorship. They acknowledge their obligations to Col. Taylor, Mr. Gilkey and the others who have contributed hours of research and labor to the sum of

this result.
