The Firelands Pioneer New Series Volume III, (January, 1886)
2 The Firelands Pioneer New Series Volume III, (January, 1886)
Norwalk, Ohio Firelands Historical Society 1886 Volume III New Series soft cover Very good condition 
I had several Fireland magazines back in 2010, but haven't had any more until now. This is one of six that I just got -- it's very good for readers of Ohio history and genealogy. There are many addresses given to the annual meeting, the first of which is The Life of Our Pioneers by General Franklin Sawyer; Pioneer Life As It Was and As It Is by C.S. Stewart; Our Work In History by Rev. J. Nelson Lewis; The Pioneer Physician by Dr. John C. Sanders of Cleveland; and Some Compensations of the Pioneer Life by Rev. J.M. Seymour. Also included are early historical incidents. Then on to Pioneer History: Legendary Account of the First Camp Meeting in the Firelands;A Fitchville Centenarian, Collins A. Brown 100 Years Old August 19, 1885; Almost a Centrarian, Martin Kellogg of Bronson 99 years on Sept. 2, 1885 and the Army Record of Soldiers From Peru, Huron County.The biographies are the best part I think. Hre are the names mentioned: Ezra and Amy G. Smith, Mrs. Lucretia Waggoneer, Miner Hall and Isaac Underhill; Mrs. John R. Osborn; Hosea Townsend; Myron N. Morris;Ira Wood; Harriet A. Messenger; Hannah Russell and Mrs.Dr. A.D. Skellenger. Other surnames are: Hakes, Quincy Adams, Watros, Maynard, Mead, Green,Sammis, Mallory, Minges, Stewart,Beecher,Scott, Smith, Clark, Conger, Bott, Worthington, Powers, Prentiss, Brooks, Husted, Higgins, White, Latimer and Fancher. The magazine is clean and nice with no names or writing. The only fault is three small areas at spine which lost paper, I have repaired them with archival tape. The magazine measures measures 6-1/4" x 9-1/4" and has 127 pages.

The Firelands Pioneer New Series Volume XXIII April, 1915, Power, Esther Gibbs, Editor
3 Power, Esther Gibbs, Editor The Firelands Pioneer New Series Volume XXIII April, 1915
Norwalk, Ohio The Firelands Historical Society 1915 Volume XXIII Card cover Very good condition 
Very nice clean magazine with just one defect, a small loss of the outer paper on the front cover at the two outer corners. Otherwise it's pristine and includes a perfect spine. The magazine focuses on the annual meeting which is actually interesting because there are small talks from the people on anything they wanted to discuss. The best topic is The Free Love Community, including the Free Lovers of Berlin Heights! Other topics are Cedar Point, a woman who lived too long, and the execution of Edward Evans and more. The magazine advertise that it's about history, biography and genealogy. This time that material comes from obituaries and includes many surnames. The magazine measures at 6" x 9" and includes a few photographs.
