It was with sad hearts that we realized our loss in the death of one
Q of our most faithful and eflicient teachers, Miss Ida M. Meyer.
Miss Meyer graduated from our school in the year 1894. She at
once took up teaching and continued in this profession until she was
needed to care for her aged father. During' the shortage of teachers in
1920 she was persuaded to go back to the sehoolroom. At the time of
her death she was employed to teach the flftll and sixth grades. She
was attending sehool in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, when she became ill, and
her death occurred there August 20, 1923.
Earl Sheldon Thomas, born October 31, 1908, departed this life,
November 13, 1923. He was a member of the Freshman Class.

I had just arrived home for a short vaca-
tion from the hospital where I had been
employed as a nurse and as I sat before a
slow-burning grate fire, I heard a sharp
whistle. I arose, walked to the window,
looked out through the streaming clouds of
soft white snowflakes, and saw a man walk-
ing hurriedly toward the house. Shaking the
snow from his coat he knocked. I opened
the door and there stood Doctor Manchester.
"Good eveningj' he said, "this afternoon
I received a call from the stricken Indians
out on the Indian Reservation for help and
I knew you were home on your vacation so
I thought you might want to help them."
"Certainly I will, when shall I start?" I
be a nurse there to meet you and to take you
to your destination," he replied.
I went to my room and after packing my
clothes, went to bed. I awoke early in the
morning, and in a few minutes was on
way to the train.
"In the morning if you can. There
It was a beautiful morning, the snow was
piled upon the boughs of the trees and looked
like an endless chain of diamonds glittering
in the sun. I bought some magazines and
passed the time with reading and wondering
about the place where I was going. The time
flew and I hardly realized that I was on the
train a day and a night.
As I stepped off the train, a girl came up
to me and said, "Are you the nurse Doctor
Manchester sent?" I told her that I was
and she took me down the road to an old
coach, in which I finished my journey.
She told me all about the Indians and of
one particular Indian, Old Wise Owl, whom
they all loved. I was greatly interested in
him for she told me he was to be one of my
many patients. The coach stopped in front
of a large white house. Miss Smith immedi-
ately took me in and up to my room where I
put my uniform on and was ready for work.
The first patient Miss Smith introduced
me to was Old Wise Owl. He was just the
kind of an old Indian I had pictured him.
About seventy or seventy-five years of age,
with dark eyes and outstanding cheek bones.
His face was pale and thin.
He asked me if I would fill his pipe and
light it for him. I started to do this but had
not finished when he ask me where I was
from. I told him and he replied that he
remembered that town. He asked me to get
the little red note book from his pocket
which I did and here is the story as he re-
"A few years ago I went back to Gnaden-
hutten to visit that old historic town for it
was there my faithful old Christian grand-
father was massacred by the white men.
While there I heard of a class whose High
School life was ideal so I took their names."
Opening his book he leafed through it page
by page and then stopped.
"Here they are, the ones that entered the
G. H. S. as green Freshmen. There were
fifteen in all, six boys and nine girls, Victor
Schreiner, Harold Thomas, Francis Nuss-
baum, Mary Pfeiffer, Mary Bender, Gladys
Brown, Julia Shull, Grace Haines, Walter
Shull, Harry Nussbaum, Wilma Murphy, Tod
Sperling, Mary Mahaffey, Mary Carothers,
and Bessie Mahaffey. They closed their year
with three less in their class, Mary Mahaffey,
Mary Carothers and Bessie Mahaifey.
"The whole class worked hard, boosting
their second grade school hoping to get a
first grade High School. When they went
back in the autumn entered as the first
Sophomore class of the G. H. S. with twelve
in their class. The next problem they had
to help solve was how to secure a new school
building. The Indian village voted three
times before their success came.
"Their Sophomore year closed with good
hopes for the next year, although they lost
three members, Harry Nussbaum, who left
their class and accepted a position in the
commercial world, Tod Sperling and Wilma
Murphy, who went to other schools.
"In their Junior year they gave the recep-
tion-l' he hesitated, opened his book. I sat
watching him every minute. When he found
the name, he resumed his story.
'fOh yes, it was at John Shull's. They
spent many good times that year but grieved
to lose two more members, Grace Haines and
Walter Shull. But a bright side appeared
when they gained the first members since
the Freshman year, Clara Mae Reed. And
they rejoiced again in the Senior year to get
another new member, Luther Lindon.
"Their commencement season was made
doubly happy in the fact that they could use
the new school building for their graduation.
They all left High School leaving a wonder-
ful record of a wonderful class."
"Oh, Wise Owl, do you really think that
was such a wonderful class ?" I asked, over-
"I certainly do and I should like to see all
of them," he replied.
"Why, Wise Owl, that was my class, the
class of 1924," I told him.
His eyes gleamed as he congratulated the
class of '24 and asked me to fill and light his
pipe again. I did and he smoked in silence,
leaving me to meditate on the happy days
spent in school.
Julia E. Shull '24
"Come Pet, let us go for a hike." I said.
It was a wonderful spring day and it cer-5
tainly was a great pleasure for me to take
Pet, my collie dog, and go for a long hike.
Generally one of my girl friends went along
but this time I happened to go by myself.
Pet and I had not gone so very far until
we reached a thicket, which we managed to
break through and when we were coming
out at the edge, my foot caught in some of
the tangled grass, and down I went, bump-
ing the side of my head on something very
hard. I looked to see what it was and found
that it was a queerly shaped stone. I
brushed some of the moss and dirt from it
and could see plainly that there had been
some markings on it, which, of course, I
could not make out, but I readily saw that
the stone resembled those which I had seen
on several Indian graves. I knew it had been
there a great many years because there was
no trace whatever of the grave.
I marked the place so that I might easily
be able to find it again. I determined not to
say a word to any of my friends except an
old lady friend who claimed she had the gift
of prophecy. She had often told me stories
about the Indians and was very fond of
showing me some of her relics. Many people
did not believe in her prophecies but I had
implicit faith in them.
I went to her home and told her about
what I had found and she said that she
would be pleased to have the stone.
It had been ten years since I had last seen
her. In the meantime our family removed to
Texas where I had completed my college
course and had been working as a private
secretary to the Governor, when I decided I
wanted a vacation. So I started back to Ohio
where my grandparents were living.
Several days after I arrived, I asked grand-
mother if the old Indian lady were still living
and to my great surprise she told me she
was. I at once decided that I would go and
see her for I wanted to ask her some ques-
I reached her cabin in the early part of
the afternoon and found her sitting there in
her chair and the smoke lazily curling from
her pipe. She did not recognize me at first
but I explained who I was and she
greatly pleased to see me. We had a
little friendly talk, and then I told her that
there was one thing that I should like Very
much to know. She quickly asked me what
it was. I told her I had lost trace of my High
School class, the class of 1924, and wished
information concerning it.
She immediately took from an old chest
the stone which I had found, which I had
long forgotten and taking some tobacco,
poured it on the stone, rolled it around and
murmured some peculiar words. Then tak-
ing the tobacco from the stone, she put it
into her pipe. Lighting the pipe, she asked
for my classmates' names and a little
description of each.
Before I gave her the description of them,
I, being curious, asked her what effect the
stone had. She said she had never told a
person but she would tell me because I was
the one that really discovered all. She said,
"Dear child, I had been hunting this very
stone. It once belonged to an old Indian
medicine doctor who was able to make
prophecies and he had most of his power
through it and I am one of his descendants.
I have the power now that he had and which,
dear child, I would never have had if it were
not for you."
'fNow, whom do you want to hear about
first?" she asked. I began to describe each
classmate and she started to talk to me, as
she gazed through the smoke from the pipe,
and described each so vividly that I, looking
through the smoke seemed to see them also.
She told me that Gladys Brown had gone
to Maryland to take up nursing and had
successfully finished her course there and
is now Superintendent of one of the big hos-
pitals in Columbus, Chio.
Francis Nussbaum had graduated from
Antioch College and had then taught for
several years but is now at Princeton Uni-
Mary Pfeiffer graduated from Ohio Uni-
versity and had begun teaching in Charles-
ton, but is now leaving for California to be
a missionary among the Indians.
Mary Bender, after graduating had be-
come a proprietoress of the Elite Dress Mak-
ing Establishment, New York City, then she
had married a noted barber.
Victor Schreiner is now making his fame
as a great ball player, playing at the present
with the Cleveland Indians. Victor is suc-
cessor to the great pitcher, Cy Young.
Julia Shull, thru her great love of history,
had followed up this line of work and is now
on a tour to Mexico where she is gathering
material for her new lecture and securing a
number of relics from that ancient Indian
city, Pueblo Bonito, for the museum of
Harold Thomas went to the Art College,
Chicago, Ill., and progressed wonderfully in
his paintings and had studied under Madame
De Ogden of Rome. Harold is now on his
way to America. His famous painting,
"Ossawatomie," now hangs in the Louvre
Art Gallery, Paris.
Luther Lindon, having graduated, had
gone to live with his uncle in Texas and now
owns a large ranch in the southern part of
Texas where he and his queen reign supreme.
After giving me this interesting history
she took the stone, carefully brushed the
tobacco from it and wrapped it tenderly in
a large piece of linen and put it back into
the old chest, promising that at her death
it should be mine. To think it all came about
through one little hike!

Tl-IE HISTORY OF THE
In September of 1923, thirteen boys and
eleven girls began their career in high school
as Freshmen. In the course of the year
Alice Nussbaum, of Seventeen, left the
school and Earl Thomas Was called to his
heavenly home. Both are sorely missed.
Early in the term We organized, electing
Edith L. Schreiner, president, Charles John-
son, vice-presidentg and Walter Begland as
secretary and treasurer. We selected gold
and silver as our class colors.
The Freshman class is an active class in
Athletics. Four members of the class:
Bernice Uhrich, Pauline Shull, Edith
Schreiner, and Paul Kennedy, are members
of the basketball team and many of the
other members of the class are striving to
attain that distinction.

EARLY HISTORY OF
The first white inhabitants of Tuscarawas
County were the Moravian Missionaries and
their families. Among these were Rev.
David Zeisberger, a man whose devotion to
his cause was tested by the many hardships
he endured and the dangers he encountered.
He was sent out by the Moravian Society for
the purpose of propagating the Christian
religion among the Indians.
There were three stations or rather
Indian villages, namely: Salem, Schoenbrun,
Here in Gnadenhutten, dwelt hundreds of
Indian Converts and their families and a
band of devoted missionary Brothers and
Sisters in peace and plenty, under the super-
intendency of Zeisberger.
But this season of peace and plenty did
not last long.
Ohio at this time was under the British
Government. It was the opinion of Zeis-
berger and Heckewelder, after the confer-
ence they had held with the Governor at
Detroit, that a man by the name of McKee
was the prime cause of the trouble, and that
he, by obtaining false reports from Eliott,
Pope, Pomoacan and various agents, per-
suaded the Governor that the missionaries
were partisans of the American cause, and
engaged in correspondence with its officers,
detrimental to the British interest.
It was this that determined the Governor
to rid himself of neighbors so troublesome
and dangerous. The attempt was under-
taken, by sending a message to the Ottawas,
and Chippewas and calling on them to attend
to it. They refused, declaring that the
Christian Indians had done them no wrong.
The expedition was kept secret. so that
none but the captains knew its destination.
In the month of August, 1781, Eliott,
Pope, and Pomarcan, visited Gnadenhutten.
For ten days controversy was waged
whether the mission should be removed.
Eliott, Pope, and Pomoacan seeing that the
missionaries were not inclined to take their
advice, resorted to threats and in some cases
violence. They at last succeeded in their
efforts. On the 3rd of September the mis-
sionaries were seized and robbed, turned out
of doors, their homes ransacked, and they
were forced to leave their crops. Although
it had not been intended to disturb the
Christian Indians, the excited warriors soon
forgot all distinction. There was no blood-
shel, but the village was a scene of robbery
and disaster. The missionaries and Indians
were then taken to Detroit as prisoners.
After intense suffering from hunger and
cold during the winter, part of the Indians
were permitted to return for the purpose of
gathering their crops which they were
forced to leave in the fall of 1781.
On the morning of the 7th of March, 1872,
finding the Indians employed in their corn
fields, sixteen of David Williamson's men
crossed the river and took their rifles with
them. The remainder went to the village,
where they found a man and a wornang
whom they killed. The sixteen soldiers ap-
proached the Indians in the field and found
them more numerous than they expected.
The whites approached them in a kindly
manner, and told them that they had come
to take them to a place where in the future
they would be protected, and advised them
to quit work, and return with them to Fort
Pitt. They also secured their arms. Some
of these Indians had been taken to this place
before and had been treated well by the
American Governor and had been dismissed
as warm friends. Under these circumstances
the Moravian Indians readily surrendered
their arms and consented to Col. Williamson
and his men. An Indian messenger was sent
to Salem to tell their brethren of the new
arrangements. Upon reaching Salem they
found that they had already left their fields
and were on their way to Gnadenhutten.
Their arms previously had been secured. Up-
on their arrival, they too were separated be-
tween the two prison houses, the males in
one, the females in the other. The number
thus confined in both has been estimated
from ninety to ninety-six.
A council was then held to determine how
the Moravian Indians should be gotten rid
of. Col. Williamson put the question to
them, whether the Moravian Indians should
be taken prisoners to Fort Pitt, or put to
death, requesting those who were in favor
of saving their lives, to step out of rank.
Only eighteen out of ninety stepped forth as
advocates of mercy. They resolved to mur-
der ffor no other word can express ith the
whole of the Christian Indians in their
The mode of execution was the question.
It lay between two proposals, one, to set
fire to the guard houses and burn the cap-
tives aliveg the other, to tomahawk and
scalp them, the latter being decided upon.
They were ordered to prepare for death.
The terror stricken prisoners from the time
they were disarmed and placed in confine-
ment, forsaw their fate and, began "their de-
votions of singing hymns and praying to
God, the Saviour of Men." The Christians'
of one solid stone, weighing fourteen tons.
hymns and prayers found an echo in the sur-
rounding wood, but no responsive feeling in
the bosoms of their executioners.
Tuscarawas County history gives the fol-
lowing account of Abraham's death:
"Abraham, whose long and flowing hair
which the day before had attracted notice,
was the first victim. One of the party seiz-
ing the cooper's mallet, exclaimed, 'How ex-
actly this will answer for the purposef Be-
ginning with Abraham, he felled fourteen
others to the ground, then handed the
instrument to another, saying, 'My arm fails
meg go on in the same way. I think I have
done pretty well'."
With tomahawk and scalping knife, the
work of death progressed in these slaughter
houses, till not a sigh nor a moan was heard
to proclaim the existence of human life
within-save two Indian boys, Jacob and
Thomas, who escaped by a miracle.
There were ninety-six human beings,
twenty-nine men, twenty-seven women,
eleven boys, eleven girls, twelve infants, hur-
ried to an untimely grave by those who
should have protected them. After this bar-
barous act was committed, Williamson and
his men set fire to the houses containing the
dead and marched for Schoenbrun. The
fruits of ten years labor in the cause for civ-
ilization were lost.
On May 11, 1797 just fifteen years and
eight months from the day of the massacre
Rev. J. Heckewelder, David Peter and party
returned to Gnadenhutten CTents of Gracej
and both carefully and tenderly buried the
bleached bones in a cellar under a mound.
On October 7, 1843, some eight or ten indi-
viduals of the town met and organized a soci-
ety for the purpose of erecting a suitable
monument in memory of the Christian Indi-
ans. The two officers selected were Rev.
Sylvester Wolle, Moravian Minister, presi-
dent and Lewis Peter, treasurer. In 1871,
the Gnadenhutten Monument Fund having
reached the sum of 81300, the society con-
tracted for the erection of the monument
which cost 82000. The dedication took place
on Wednesday, June 5, 1872.
The stone is Indiana marble, the main
shaft rising twenty-five feet above the base
The entire height of the monument is thirty-
On the monument is the inscription, "Here
Triumphed in Death Ninety Christian Indi-
ans, March 8, 1872.7 The monument is lo-
cated in the center of the original town.
Several thousand people witnessed the
dedicatory ceremony. The address was de-
livered by Rev. Edmund de Schweintz, D. D.,
of Bethlehem, Pa., Bishop of Moravian
Church. At its close a funeral dirge was
chanted, and an Indian at each of the four
corners of the monument, with cord in hand
dropped the drapery to the ground as the last
notes of the dirge were chanted. The four
Indians were from the Moravian Mission in
Canada. One of them, John Jacobs, was the
great-grandson of Jacob Schebosh, one of the
victims of the massacre ninety years before.
In this beautiful historic spot is the oldest
Memorial in Ohio, dated Aug. 1775, a mem-
orial of Joshua, a Mohican Indian.
It was from the historical standpoint as
well as a thorough search for her lover,
which caused Evangeline to spend a night in
The Tents of Grace.
The massacre of the ninety-six Christian
Indians is "a deed of dreadful note" that
reddens the bloodies page in American His-
tory, an ensanguined history that "all the
perfumes of Arabia cannot sweetenf'

A HISTORY OF GNADENHUTTEN, I797-1924
Why the Town Was Rebuilt
On June 1, 1796, fourteen years after the
massacre, Congress passed an act by which
three tracts of four thousand acres each
about the old mission town were ordered set
off to the Moravian Society. The passage
of this act made a deep stir among the Mo-
ravians. "The Society for Propagating the
Gospel among the Heathen" immediately ap-
pointed John Heckewelder agent for the
Society to begin the work of repossessing the
old mission towns.
On the evening of May 11, 1797 John
Heckewelder and his party of horsemen ar-
rived at Gnadenhutten to execute the pro-
visions of the act of 1796. The other men
of the party were: William Henry, a member
of Congress, Mr. Kamp, their guide, John
Messemer, John Rothrock, Christian Clew-
ell, and two Indians, Captain Bull and Joseph
Mr. Henry wrote of the incident:
"We found the whole neighborhood cov-
ered with a deep, dry grass of an old stand-
ing to which on the day of our arrival we
set fire. We did this to defend ourselves in
some degree against the numerous snakes
which we found had taken possession. All
the ground where the town stood is covered
with briars, hazel, plum and thorn bushes,
like an impenetrable forest excepting where
paths of bears, deer, turkeys and other wild
animals afford admittance. I was exceed-
ingly affected while I walked over and con-
templated the ruin of this once beautiful
place. Part of their chimneys appear in their
rows. The place where our poor Indians were
massacred is strongly marked. Part of their
bones are yet to be seen amongst the coals
and ashes. In the cellar of the house where
part of them were murdered we found nine
of them. In every direction the ground was
covered with the bones of their cattle killed
by their enemies."
The party carefully gathered and tend-
erly buried the relics of the dead in as
respectful a manner as their means permit-
ted. They then cleaned space for a camp,
and built a house for the coming surveyors.
This house was the first house in modern
Tuscarawas County and was completed in
mid-May, 1797. It stood some where in the
vacant tract between what is now Mr. Sam-
uel Walter's residence and the cemetery. The
survey was finished in July, 1797. Hecke-
welder rode to Marietta to complete the
official records and from thence to Canada
to superintend the return of the exiles. The
rest of the party returned East.
In May, 1798 Heckewelder and Rev. Wil-
liam Edwards started from Fairfield, Canada
with five of their Indian brethren, as an ad-
vance party. After a very fatiguing journey
they arrived at Gnadenhutten June 19, 1798.
They found the surveyor's cabin which they
had built the year before unharmed. A few
days later Schmick and the Colver brothers,
known as the carpenters, arrived from the
East and began building a house for Hecke-
welder. The building was finished in Sep-
tember and on the 29th of that month Hecke-
welder moved into it. The date of this event
is known in history as the date of the first
white settlement on the Tuscarawas River.
The Centennial anniversary was celebrated
at Gnadenhutten on September 29, 1898 by
the presence of nearly ten thousand people.
The site of this house is at the southwest
corner of Main and Cherry Streets where
Edward Campbell's home now stands. The
house was a large two story building built
of logs. It was used and remained standing
until the eighties.
Why the Gnadenhutten Tract Was Opened
to White Settlers
Ziesberger and his wife, Rev. Mortimer,
and thirty-six Indians arrived at Goshen
October 15, 1798 after a journey of fifty-one
days by canoe over Lake Erie into the Cuya-
hoga River and down the Tuscarawas River.
"The carpenters" built a house for the aged
missionaries and a church for the settle-
ment. Since this dwindled band was all that
returned to the Tuscarawas, the cessions
given the Indians far exceeded their de-
mands and so in the latter part of 1798, it
was decided to place all the Indians on the
Schoenbrun tract and open the Gnadenhut-
ten and Salem tracts for white settlement
for the benefit of the mission. Accordingly
in October, 1798 both the Gnadenhutten and
Salem tracts were surveyed into farming lots
of about 100 or 150 acres each.
The Early Settlers
Paul Geer, Peter Edmonds, Ezra Warner
and Peter Warner were the first permanent
white settlers to come to Gnadenhutten.
They arrived in May, 1799 and began clear-
ing a few acres west of the river on which
to build their cabins. Later in 1799, Asa
Walton, Nathan Warner, Jonathan Warner,
Ezra Warner and their families came to
Gnadenhutten and settled across the river.
The First Store
On August 24, 1799 a store was raised
across from Heckewelder's house on the lot
now owned by Samuel Begland. In October
David Peter arrived from Pennsylvania to
take charge of the store for the Moravian
Society. The value of the stock placed in
the store was according to Mr. Peter's ledger
8900 and the value of the building and lot
8400. Mr. Peter always kept in his ledger
the individual accounts of all who carried on
business with him. The accounts were
neatly written and contain the names of
most of the early settlers in Tuscarawas
County. From this ledger, which is in the
possession of descendants of the Peter fam-
ily today, the prices of the various commod-
ities can be learned for the year 1800. In
order that you may compare the prices then
and now I shall quote the prices paid for
commodities at Peter's store in 1800. The
values were stated in pounds, shillings and
pence but to make the prices easier to under-
stand I have changed them to the present
day terms of dollars and cents. By using a
shilling at that time equivalent to 131-3
cents today and a penny worth 1 1-9 cents.
The prices are as follows: butter, 120 per
pound, bears fat, 7c per pound, bears meat,
31Qc per pound, tallow, 13 1-3c per pound,
flour, 4c per pound, venison, 4c per pound,
sugar, 155 per pound, coffee, 50c per pound,
Bohea tea, 80c per pound, salt 81.47 per peck
of 20c per pound, gun powder, 81.20 per
pound, pepper, 66 2-3c per pound, tobacco,
20c per pound, shingle nails 36 2-3c per
pound, calico, 87c per yard, linen, 31.20 per
yard, muslin, 500 per yard, writing paper,
3c per sheet, combs, 25c each, pins, 26c per
paper, needles, 7c per dozen, moccasins 47c
per pair, stockings, 81.30 per pair, blankets,
32.95 each, spelling books, 170 each, brass
kettles, 85.50 each, water dippers, 340 each,
hatchets, 951.00 each, lead, 270 per pound,
rifles, 820.00 each, knives, 300, scissors, 200,
looking glasses, 270 each, hoes, 81.04, choco-
late, 500 per pound. The price of a day's
labor was 500, corn sold at 870 per bushel,
raccoon skins sold for 33 1-30 each, beaver
skins, 82.27 each, wildcat skins, 300 each,
fox skins, 400 each, bear, 81.00, and deer
skins at 170 per pound.
Prices were high and wages low at that
time. A laboring man working for 500 per
day then could not have enjoyed many lux-
uries. Money was scarce and fur was the
medium of exchange because it was found
in abundance. During the first two seasons
over 300 deer skins, 20 bear skins and many
other pelts were bought at the Peter's store.
This store was the first, and only store in the
Tuscarawas valley until 1808. People from
far and near came to Gnadenhutten to buy
supplies and provisions. The store was a
resort for neighbors in the evenings and they
would gather here to chat and pass the time.
Mr. Peter was store keeper until his death
The Early Town
A map of the town of Gnadenhutten in
1800 is in possession of the Moravian Society
at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The map
shows four houses, namely: Heckewelder's
house, David Peter's store, the parsonage
occupied by Rev. Lewis Huebner and a
blacksmith shop which stood on the lot now
owned by O. G. Grey. This blacksmith shop
was finished August 20, 1800. It was built
by Louis Knauss, who was the first iron
worker in modern Tuscarawas County.
The map shows Main Street to be 120 ft.
wide and Cherry Street 80 ft. wide. The
cemetery for the congregation of the Mora-
vian Church was laid out August 14, 1800.
In July, 1801, a twenty foot well was fin-
ished at Gnadenhutten. It was at the center
of Main and Cherry Streets between what is
now the residences of Edward Kilcherman
and O. G. Grey. Some time in later years a
well was dug at the east end of the town at
the center of East Main Street and in front
of what was the home of Miss Ida Meyer.
These wells were operated by means ofaa
windlass. They were the property ofthe
town and were used as public wells for many
years. T 1
The first church services were held in
Heckewelderls house, afterward under a
spreading tree on the east shore of the river,
then in 1801 it was held at Peter's house and
then at the parsonage. In 1803 the first
church was finished and occupied by the
The First Grist Mill
On December 9, 1801 a grist mill was com-
pleted at Gnadenhutten. It was erected by
Boaz Walton and millwrights who came to
Gnadenhutten for that purpose. This was
the first horse grist mill in Tuscarawas
County. Before the erection of the mill
many methods had been tried, some tried to
soak the grain and then pound it, others
grated it, cracked and shaved it. The only
fairly successful way of making the meal
before the coming of the horse mill was by
using the small hand mill which was in the
community. People came from all directions
to Gnadenhutten to get their meal ground
after the erection of the horse mill. They
considered themselves fortunate if they did
not have to wait more than one day and a
night for their turn to get their grinding
done. It is not known who was the first, but
Abraham Romich operated the mill in 1803
and Abraham Fry in 1804.
Gnadenhutten in 1823
Although the community about Gnaden-
hutten continued to grow rapidly the town
itself grew but little. In 1823 it contained
only about eight cabins, occupied by David
Peter, storekeeper, Jacob Winsch, carpenter
and cabinet maker, who came from Penn-
sylvania in 1805, John G. Demuth, cabinent
maker who came in 1800, John Tschudy,
weaver, who came in 1804, Frederick Dell,
weaver, who came from Pennsylvania in
1802, John Niegeman, tailor, John Andreas,
shoemaker and Jacob Roushenberger, pastor,
who succeeded Rev. Muller in 1813, as pastor
of the Moravian Church.
Why the Indians Were Removed
The reservations given the Moravians in-
stead of being a source of revenue became
an unbearable burden. Accordingly in
August 4, 1823 an agreement was made be-
tween Lewis Cass, commissioner of the
United States, and Rev. De Schweintz, agent
for the Society, where by the Indian lands
were returned to the Government and the
Indians removed to another reservation.
The Town Regularly Laid Out
Although the town had been laid out in
1798 by Heckewelder it was not regularly
laid out until 1824. In that year after the
Moravian Society had returned the Indian
lands to the Government, James Petrick
surveyed the town and laid it out in regular
lots. The town thus formed contained eighty-
three in lots and thirty-two out lots. The
main streets of the town were made ninety-
nine feet wide and the other streets forty-
nine and one-half feet. The additions and
sub-divisions which have been made are as
follows: Miksch's addition of sixteen lots in
1853, the Moravian sub-division of thirty-
two lots in 1865, the Winsch sub-division of
eight lots, and the Peter's sub-division of
nine lots in 18733 the Walter's addition and
the Peter's addition about 1893. Heck's sub-
division was made in 1923 but as yet it has
not been admitted to the corporation. No
doubt in the near future it will be admitted.
In 1834 Francis X. Walter came to Gnad-
enhutten from Pennsylvania. He was a tan-
ner by trade and proceeded at once to build
a tannery. It was located near the creek
which flows through the Walter's lot. The
process of tanning the hides was long and
interesting. It took almost a year to tan a
hide. The hides were first placed in vats
which contained lime water to loosen the
hair, after they had remained in this solu-
tion the proper length of time they were re-
moved and placed in other vats in which
they were placed between layers of ground
tan bark, to cure them. This tan bark was
obtained from a certain kind of oak tree, the
chestnut oak found in the community. The
tanner purchased this bark from the farmers
and ground it into pulp with h.is horse power
grinder. The hides were left in this curing
state about two months. They were then
removed and oiled. The mixture used for oil-
ing the hides contained fish oil, beeswax and
tallow. After the oiling process had been
completed the hides were then shaved on
both sides to make them smooth. The hides
were then blackened with a preparation of
lampblack and some other substance. This
was rubbed off and another application of
the preparation was made. This was rubbed
off and the hides were then smooth and
glossy. Mr. Walter's tannery was the first
and only tannery in Gnadenhutten. He sup-
plied the entire section of the country with
leather and continued the business until
The Finding of the Indian Bones
John Heckewelder and his party in 1797
had temporarily buried the bones of the
massacred Indians while they were here sur-
verying the Moravian tracts. In 1799 Hecke-
welder and David Peter reburied the bones
in one of the old cellars.
The site of this grave, in time, was los?
sight of and forgotten. In 1842 it was acci-
dentally discovered by Rev. Sylvester Wolle
while digging for parched corn.
The Founding of the Monumental Society
On October 7, 1843 the Gnadenhutten
Monumental Society was organized. The
prupose of this society was "to make judici-
ous and suitable improvements upon the plot
of the old Indian Village, and to erect upon
that spot an appropriate monumentf' Rev.
Wolle was elected president and Lewis Peter,
treasurer. The membership fee of the Soci-
ety was one dollar per year.
' An Incident at Gnadenhutten During
the Civil War
When the President called for Volunteers
in 1861, and in the later drafts, Gnadenhut-
ten furnished her quota of men. The men
fought bravely at the front for the Union
cause, and the women back home, true Amer-
ican Patriots, sent them food and other
necessities when needed. While the war was
thus proceeding, there occurred in Gnaden-
hutten in 1863 an incident that is both his-
torical and interesting. Morgan at this time
was making his raid of destruction through
Ohio and sometime in July the report
reached Gnadenhutten that Morgan was
coming. The town and country was all
astir with excited people. Men buried their
money and women hid their silverware. The
men took their squirreling rifles and banded
along the roads and trails to intercept the
raiders. Not a horse or a cow could be seen
in the community for they also had been
hidden in thickets and bottoms. The women
in the meanwhile were busy preparing a
feast for Morgan and his men. They knew
he always demanded food and they hoped to
gain his favor by giving him a good meal
and thus save the town from pillage, but
Morgan went another way and never knew
what a feast he missed at Gnadenhutten.
The Indian Monument
It was not until 1871 that the monumental
society's funds were sufficient to contract
for the erection of the Indian Monument.
In that year the stone was contracted for
and was erected June 4, 1872. On the next
day it was dedicated and the ceremonies
were attended by about tenthousand people.
The oration was delivered by Rev. Edward
de Schweinetz, D. D., of Bethlehem, Pa.,
Bishop ofthe Moravian Church. At its close
a funeral dirge was chanted and four In-
dians, one at each corner, with cord in hand,
detached the drapery as the notes of the
dirge died away.
The monument is Indian brown limestone,
the main shaft which is one solid stone,
weighs fourteen tons and rises twenty-five
feet above the base. The total height of the
monument is thirty-five feet and seven
inches. The cost of the stone was 32,000
The south side of the stone bears this
inscription: "Here triumphed in Death
Ninety Christian Indians March 8, 1872."
The north side bears the date of dedication.
The monument was dedicated in the center
of the main street of the original town.
The Centennial 1882
In 1882, the centennial year of the mass-
acre appropriate memorial services were
held at Gnadenhutten. Excursions from
Steubenville and Columbus brought thou-
sands to the site of the bloddiest spot in our
history. There were about 10,000 people
present, among whom were Gov. Foster of
Ohio and Henry B. Lugwenbach, a grandson
of John Heckewelder. The locations of his-
torical buildings were marked with labeled
boards. The speakers of the day were,
Bishop H. J. Van Vleck of Gnadenhutteng
Hon. D. A. Hollingsworth, of Cadiz and Gov.
Early in the spring of 1884 Gnadenhutten
petitioned to be incorporated as a village.
The State granted the request and on Mon-
day, May 10, 1884 the first corporation elec-
tion was held. Mr. L. S. Winsch was elected
Mayor and thus became Gnadenhutten's first
The First Improvements
Perhaps the first improvements were those
in the streets. The streets were graded and
stone street crossings were laid. Later nine-
teen large gasoline street lights were put up
about the town. In 1889 ninety-six maple
trees were planted. on the market lot. In
1891, 77,000 paving bricks were purchased
by the town for the building of sidewalks.
These sidewalks were well laid and some of
them are in use todayf
The Centennial of 1898
At the morning service January 2, 1898,
Rev. Wm. H. Rice pastor of the Moravian
Church called the attention of the congrega-
tion to the fact that this year was the cen-
tennial year of Gnadenhutten's settlement.
Every one was deeply aroused with interest.
At the next Church Council a resolution Was'
adopted, appointing a centennial committee
and directing this committee "to take such
measures as would secure a proper observ-
ance of Centennial Day, September 29th."
The committee appointed sub-committees
to look after certain things on the great day.
By splendid co-operation and leadership the
committees had everything ready for the
The early morning prayer meeting was
the first service of the day. Although it was a
small gathering it was one of interest. Then
at nine o'clock the procession under the
marshalship of Mayor Lewis Winsch and
headed by the Amphian Band of Uhrichsville
marched to the sites of historical spots of old
Thirty-eight V Y p A, up
Gnadenhutten. Markers were unveiled at

Ferry landing, the burial place of the re-
mains of the old Indian Martyrs, the Mission
Houseg the Copper Shop, the First Store,
the First Churchg the Second Church and
the First Parsonage. The next service was
held at the Moravian Church. Here Bishop
Van Vleck gave an address of Welcome.
In the afternoon the people assembled un-
der a large tent on the market lot. Here Rev.
W. H. Rice gave a historical address on the
life of John Heckewelder. After this ad-
dress many other short addresses were giv-
en by prominent men.
In the evening the Musical Union gave a
cantata, "David, the Shepherd Boy." It was
hailed with enthusiastic applause by the
audience. Thus ended the great Centennial
Day? It is estimatedrthat P7000 people at-
tended the services of the day. They were
accommodated by special trains. Pres.
McKinley had been invited to attend the ser-
vices but was unable to leave Washington.
It was a day of instructive and helpful in-
fluence to ally and one of the biggest days
in Gnadenhutten's history.
The Print Shop
In the early eighties W. T. Van Vleck
established a print shop at Gnadenhutten.
He first used the building pre-occupied by
Charles Peter, a cabinet maker, for his ofiice
and work shop. He did mostly job printing.
However in 1889 he printed Gnadenhutten's
first and only village paper, "The Gnaden-
hutten Press." He publishd the paper
monthly until 1894. The paper had a cir-
culation of about 425.
Mr. Van Vleck later moved his shop in the
old carpet shop and continued his printing
until his death in 1920. His printing equip-
ment was purchased by the Gnadenhutten
school, and by means of this equipment they
publish and print the school paper, "The
The Gnadenhutten Foundry
In 1891 John Frazier remodeled a barn on
the Louis Peter property now the rear of
Philip Gutensohn's lot, into a foundry. The
work which was done was mostly molding.
They made stove parts, sash weights and
other articles. If you look close at the iron
plates at the street crossings you will see
the name, "Gnadenhutten Foundry" upon
them. These are a product of the old
foundry. Mr. Frazier was assisted in his
foundry work by his sons John, Jr. and
George. They continued the business about
The Fruit Evaporators
In the eighties, two fruit evaporators
were in operation at Gnadenhutten. One was
owned by John Neiderhouser and the other
by Lawrence Huebner. Neiderhouser's
evaporator stood near the present meat
market and was a double evaporator. Mr.
Huebner's was a single evaporator. In the
year 1888 the two concerns produced 38,000
pounds of evaporated apples.
It is also interesting to note that in that
year 16,000 bushels of apples were made in-
to cider, and 3000 bushels of winter apples
were shipped from Gnadenhutten. It was
a bumper crop.
Gnadenhutten after 126 years of exist-
ence is not a large town. Although the pop-
ulation has been increasing steadily through-
out all these years it is still a quiet village
of about 600 inhabitants. With the coming
of the Clay industry the prospects of the
future of Gnadenhutten look very bright.

THE HISTORY OF THE. MORAVIAN CHURCH
The history of the Moravian Church of
Gnadenhutten, Ohio, is closely connected
with the history of Schoenbrunn, which has
the honor of having had the first church and
the first school house west of the Alleghany
Schoenbrunn was settled by David Zeis-
berger and John Heckewelder, May 3, 1772.
In the same year October 9, the Moravian
Church at Gnadenhutten was established.
This mission grew very rapidly but en-
joyed peace and prosperity for only a few
years, when on March 8, 1782, the cowardly
massacre by the white soldiers of 96 Chris-
tian Indians occurred.
No attempts were made to re-establish
this mission for sixteen years.
In 1798 John Heckewelder, William Ed-
wards and five Indian brethren returned to
Gnadenhutten, to re-establish the church.
The Rev. John Heckewelder and his help-
ers built the first house on the east bank of
the Tuscarawas River on the site of the pres-
ent home of E. B. Campbell. Services were
held in this house for five years and here the
congregation was organized July 6, 1800.
The first church was built on the south
side of West Main Street, on the present site
of the home of A. E. Milligan. This was a
log structure 20 feet square.
The Church Council held a meeting Janu-
ary 3, 1819 and decided to build a new
church. The construction of this church
was begun May 6, 1819.
At sunrise August 13, 1820 the village was
awakened by the music of the trombone
choir which ushered in the celebration of the
opening of the new church.
This structure was built in front of the
first church and a covered walk 8 feet long
connected the two buildings. The size of
the new room which was built was 28 feet
by 36 feet. The old log church was used as
a parochial school house for a number of

present church was built.
The corner-stone was laid on Sunday, July
27, 1902 and on Sunday, May 10, 1903 the
church was dedicated. Rev. Rice preached
the dedication sermon. He was the first and
one of the most faithful pastors that served
in this church.
He served from May, 1903 until January,

HISTORY OF THE METHODIST CHURCH
InTthe year 1798 a small band ofemission-
aries settled on the banks of the Tuscarawas
at the present site of Gnadhutten. Nearly
all the missionaries of this first band were
the early Moravians. But as time passed
by and the settlement grew, more people
came and among these were the pioneer
Methodists. They were men such as William
Hamilton, Lewis Peters, James McCreery,
and Dr. Arnold. Being good christian men,
they immediately saw the need of a church
of their own creed. But on account of there
being such a small number of them, they
could not afford to build a church to worship
in. So they held their services in private
The first services were held in William
Hamilton's barn which was located about
one and a half miles south of town. In this
barn William McCreery, one of the present
members of the Methodist Church was bap-
tized. In a few years, this place of worship
became too small so they built a church
about two miles south of town, on the land
now owned by William Schreiner. A small
cemetery is all there is to mark the site of
this first church. But while these activities
were going on south o ftown, a similar church
sprung up north of town, at the present site
of Cross Roads school building. Here also
a small cemetery remains to mark the site
of this church. Both of these churches pros-
pered greatly and the people begang to see
the necessity of a central church at Gnad-
To this end they turned their endeavorsg
but this was an uphill task because it was at
the time of the great Civil War. But the
perseverance of these pioneers made the
building of the church possible.
William Hamilton purchased the lot and
donated it for the site. The new church was
started about harvest time of the year 1861.
The building committee consisted of Dr.
Arnold, Lewis Peters, William Hamilton, and
James McCreery. The task of building was
very great, because all lumber had to be se-
cured from the woods and hewn into lumber
suitable for building. The carpenter work
was done by the day. The foreman, Jim
Kail, received a dollar and fifty cents per
day, and the carpenters, Joe Rhodes, Jack
Rasher, Jesse Ivens, and Reuben and John
Mahn, received a dollar and twenty-five cents
per day. Mr. Reuben Mohn laid the flooring
at a dollar and thirty-seven cents per square,
while the regular price was two dollars per
square. Mr. Lewis Peters furnished the
money for the cupola. James McCreery did
the painting and his son John, a member of
the present church, puttied the nail holes.
Having favorable weather conditions, the
carpenters finished the building by Christ-
mas, at a total cost of two thousand dollars.
The building was dedicated free of debt. The
dedicatory sermon was preached by Presid-
ing Elder Ingsley.
Gnadenhutten at this time was part of a
charge, which was composed of seven difer-
ent churches. There were two preachers in
charge of these churches, a senior and a
junior. One Sunday the senior would preach
and the next Sunday the junior. Services
were held every two weeks.
Few changes were made in the church for
a quarter of a century, then the women of
the church formed the Mite Society, and
through their untiring efforts made many
changes in the church.
They put in new windows, new seats, new
carpets, and a new rostrum.
In 1892 the Mite Society was abandoned
and the present Ladies' Aid Society was
formed. Through the efforts of these
women, an old debt on the parsonage was
paid off. The repairs that were made on
the old church, carried it through another
quarter of a century, when the people began
to realize the need of a new church.
The ministers that had served up to this
time were Revs. Shaw, Saddler, Lewis, Den-
nis, Perrygoy, Neff, Saddler, Rader, Ander-
son, Beetham, Knight, Williams, Paugh,
Timberlake, Cummings, Porter, and Martin.
The work of building a new church was
started by Rev. R. W. Martin. For a time it
seemed as if his efforts would not be success-
ful, but all efforts were not in vain, because
his work paved the way and a few years later
the task was taken up by Rev. C. M. Wallace,
which resulted in the present church.
Early in September, 1913, the pastor
called a meeting of the Board of Trustees and
at this meeting a building committee was
appointed, which consisted of W. G. Webb,
who was appointed chairman, Z. T. Dum-
bauld, and Harry Hamilton. They also ap-
pointed Mrs. W. O. Walton and Mrs. James
Hamilton to raise money for the new church.
By March 1, 1914, enough money had been
raised to make it safe to let the contract.
Mr. Hezekiah Wardell, being the lowest bid-
der, was awarded the contract.
Again the Ladies' Aid was instrumental
in securing money. For thirteen months
their receipts totaled better than fifty-five
dollars per month. The women deserve a
great deal of credit for the success in the
building of the new church.
The building of this church had many
serious set backs, the greatest being the
taking away of the pastor, C. M. Wallace,
right in the midst of the building program,
but the great burden was very successfully
taken up and carried through by Rev.
Charles L. Lewis.
The present church is a modern up to date
building and one that the town should be
proud of. The present congregation consists
of two hundred and three members, which
shows that the church has been doing good
work in spite of all hardships they have
gone through. The first congregation con-
sisted of barely more than fifteen members.
The pastors that have served in the pres-
ent church are Rev. Charles L. Lewis, Rev.
H. L. Guiler, and Rev. F. A. Ashburn.
The Methodist Church of this town is a
wide awake organization always looking out
for the welfare of the community.

THE HISTORY OF BEERSHEBA CHURCH
Most of the early settlements about Gnad-
enhutten were made west of the town across
the river, in the fertile bottom land. Acre
after acre was cleared by the new coming
English Settlers. Cabins were built and soon
a thriving settlement stood across the river.
Three things bound these early settlers to
Gnadenhutten, they were: the church, the
school, and the store, at Gnadenhutten.
High water often kept the children from
attending school and church at Gnaden-
hutten, so while Bishop Loskiel was visiting
Gnadenhutten in the fall of 1803, the settlers
asked him to establish a church in their set-
tlement. Their request was granted and in
the spring of 1804 Rev. George G. Miller was
called to take charge. The spot chosen for
the church was the western corner of tract
28 on what is now known as the Benedict
Gross farm, about a mile west of Gnaden-
hutten and near Lock Seventeen. The spot
was cleared June 29, 1804. The building was
raised in March, 1805, and the roof was laid
in August. The doors and windows were cut
out by Peter Edmonds and Joseph Everettg
the chinks were filled in by Jonathan Warn-
er, the brethren and a few outsiders plas-
tered the building. The chimney was built
by Nathan Warner. The logs were sawed
for floors by Daniel Warner and Mr. Tracy.
The floors were laid by Boaz and Jesse Wal-
ton and Joseph Everett. The doors, stairs,
and windows were made by Jacob Winsch of
Gnadenhutten. A bake oven was built by
Nathan Warner. A garden spot was cleared
by Peter Edward. The church was dedicated
December 15, 1805 in the presence of about
two hundred people, and was christened the
Beersheba. On the twentieth, Rev. Muller,
who had arrived in Gnadenhutten in August,
moved across the river.
The first burial in the Beersheba Cemetery
occurred May 10, 1812 when the body of
Rebecca O'Donald was laid to rest.
I V' 3
The Beersheba Moravian Church remained
a separate congregation until 1825 when it
again joined the Gnadenhutten congrega-
tion from which it originated. This was the
second religious society of white men organ-
ized in Tuscarawas County.
On February 3, 1806 school was started
at Beersheba with 18 children attending. In
1813 school was taught at a cabin which had
been built by Mr. Pettycoart. Alexander
Hubbard was the schoolmaster. He taught
another term in the Beersheba Church. He
was followed by William Reed who taught
two years. The people spoke English and in
early times what is now called Lock Seven-
teen was "Yankee Town."
Many facts of historical interest can be
found in the records of Beersheba Church.
The following are some of the most impor-
tant: May 11, 12, 1857 the river overflowed
its banks in a remarkable manner."
"In 1810 the whooping cough prevailed in
both this and the Dutch settlements, also
some grown people had it."
September 1, 1812, "the surrender of
Hull's army to the English brought our state
and settlement in great danger of invasion
by the savage."

THE HISTORY OF OUR
January 18, 1802 marks the opening of
the first school for white settlers in Gnaden-
hutten. Rev. Ludwig Huebner, then Mora-
vian minister in the vicinity, conducted the
school during the winter months, three days
out of the week, in the parsonage. Seven-
teen pupils were present the first day. The
school books then consisted of U. S. Speller,
U. S. History and the Western Calculator.
They used the Bible as a reading book.
After the erection of the second church in
1820, the old log church fbuilt in 18031 was
used for week day school instead of the par-
sonage. In 1842 public schools were insti-
tuted throughout the state of Ohio and in
1843 the first school building in Gnadenhut-
ten was erected. It was a one story, one
room structure of brick and was located on
lots numbers 68 and 69, the lots now owned
by Mrs. Emma Delong and Mr. O. G. Gray.
As the population increased, it became neces-
sary to erect a larger building which was
done several years later. This was a two
story, two room frame structure built on the
same site as the previous building.
In the year 1879 Mr. S. K. Mardis a young,
ambitious and farseeing educator was placed
at the head of our school. Due to the
increased attendance at this period, it be-
came necessary to add two rooms to the
school house. It was largely through the
untiring efforts of Prof. Mardis that the
Gnadenhutten High School was organized in
1884, just forty years ago. The High School
then consisted of a two year course. The
following were some of the studies: Algebra,
Bookkeeping, Geometry, Cboth plane and
solidl, General History, Physical Geography,
Ray's Higher Arithmetic and Harvey's
The fame of this school soon spread far
and wide and students came from all direc-
tions. The first class to graduate was the
class of 1885. This class consisted of two
members Atty. Francis Leuthi of Boulder,
Colorado, and Mr. Charles Helter now de-
ceased. The first commencement was held
in the M. E. Church. The following was

The class of 1886 was a large class. Fry's
Valley, Lock Seventeen and Gilmore as well
as Gnadenhutten were well represented in
Prof. Mardis continued as superintendent
of the school until the year 1891 when he
resigned in order that he might complete his
college course. Prof. H. H. Helter who had
just graduated from Ohio Wesleyan Univers-
ity succeeded him as superintendent. After
two years of successful work Prof. Helter
was called to a larger field of activity. But
our school was not to suffer for Prof. Mardis
who had completed his college course was
again elected superintendent. Under his
efficient management our school continued
to grow until the building was entirely
In the year 1894 the directors of this
special school district decided that a new
schodl building should be built. The people
voted to purchase a site of three acres on
South Walnut Street. The board then pro-
ceeded to erect a six room brick building,
the one now in use. This building was ready
for use in September, 1896.
Prof. Mardis remained with us two years
more when he resigned having been elected
to the superintendency of the Urichsville
Prof. O. J. Luethi, a graduate of Oberlin
and a member of the class of '86 was then
made superintendent. After serving us
faithfully for three years Mr. Luethi was
called to other fields of labor. He was suc-
ceeded by Prof. H. P. Jeffers, a graduate of
the Normal Department of Mt. Vernon Col-
lege. After three years of successful work,
Prof. Jeffers resigned to accept a position
with the Midland Life Insurance Company
of Columbus, Ohio.
The next two years 1904-1906 Mr. R. L.
Frazier, a graduate of our own school was
superintendent. He resigned to become
Deputy County Recorder, and was succeeded
by Mr. J. E. Ring, a graduate of Ohio North-
ern University, Ada, Ohio. During Prof.
Ring's superintendency another grade was
added to the High School making it a three
year course. In 1907 the first High School
Annual, "The Goal" was published and has
been edited fourteen times since. Prof. Ring
remained here until 1911 when Mr. Samuel
Begland who had been an eflicient assistant
High School teacher succeeded him as super-
intendent. During Prof. Begland's super-
intendency our school was placed under
county supervision. He resigned in 1916 to
become Cashier of the Gnadenhutten Bank
which position he has held ever since. Mr.
C. A. Sindlinger, assistant High School
teacher was then advanced to the position of
Under Prof. Sindlinger's capable manage-
ment several important changes have been
made in our school. May 2, 1922 the High
School was granted a charter making it a
school of the first grade. The same year the
County Board of Education united the town-
ship with this special district for school pur-
poses. This district comprises Bethany
Grange Hill, Goosefoot, Ross, Seventeen and
Gnadenhutten. 6 H ee
Our school has grown considerably in the
last few years and the present building is no
longer adequate. After voting three times
for a bond issue with which to secure means
for erecting a new High School building the
issue carried and work on the building was
at once begun. At this writing the building
is nearing completion and will soon be ready
Besides the regular course of study our
school has taken part in the various county
contests such as debating, reading, singing,
and spelling. We have also had our exhibits
at the county fair every year since 1915 and
have always won our share of prizes.
In the early history of this settlement the
Federal Government donated to this com-
munity a farm of 115 acres for school pur-
poses. This was known as the school land
and for many years the proceeds from this
farm were used to supplement our school
fund. In the year 1919 upon the advice of
state authorities it was sold for 317,400
This together with 81500 secured from the
Railroad Company for their right of way
has been placed in the sinking fund of the
state. From this we realize over 6900 annu-
ally as a help toward maintaining our
During these forty years since the organ-
ization of the High School there has never
failed to be a graduating class. Three hun-
dred and eighty-three students have received
diplomas from this high school and many of
these are now graduates of higher institu-
tions of learning. They may be found in
various occupations from coast to coast and
from Canada to the Gulf. At least one hun-
dred of these have at sometime been teach-
ers. Where ever these graduates are located
you will find them interested in the better-
ment of the community in which they live.

Clay Township was set of from Salem,
March 2, 1824. In that year the land which
had been given to the Indians by the Gov-
ernment was returned and Clay Township
lands were oiered for sale. The settlers
before this time had leased the land from
the Moravian Society, and settled upon it.
When the lands were offered for sale in 1824
many of them established their claims and
bought the land at a small price. The first
election was held the first Monday in April,
1824, at the home of John G. Demuth. Mr.
Demuth was elected the first Justice of
Peace. Clay Township is located in the south
central part of the county. It is bounded by
Warwick and Rush on the east, Washington
on the south, and on the west by Salem and
Clay Township Today
According to a census made by the Sopho-
more Class and the Township teachers, Clay
Township has a population of about 1300.
The males outnumber the females almost
fifty persons. Eighty-five percent of' the
people are home owners. There are nearly
two hundred touring cars and twenty trucks
in the township. Fifty homes have running
water. Nearly two hundred have electric
lights. Twenty have acetylene lighting
plants. The township has three hundred
horses, and nearly seven hundred cattle of
'which sixty are thoroughbreds. The town-
ship has five hundred and fifty hogsg eight
hundred and seventy-five sheep and ten thou-
sand chickens. There are about one hundred
ducks and about thirty geese. The township
has six elementary schools and a modern
first grade high school. The main industry
with the exception of farming in the town-
ship is the Clay industry. The Romig Clay
Product Company east of Gnadenhutten
manufactures sewer pipes and employs
about one hundred and seventy-five men.
The Belden Face Brick Company west of
Gnadenhutten, having an average daily out-
put of 80,000 bricks per day, employs about
one hundred men. The Ross Clay Product
Company west of Gnadenhutten, near Lock
Seventeen is now completed and will employ
nearly two hundred men when operated at
its greatest capacity.
OUR GREATEST MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
In the beautiful valley of the Tuscarawas
thereliesfmamf rich deposits oftclayf These
deposits are of the richest in the world.
They have been used from the time the
Indians were here in the early part of the
eighteenth century, where they used their
crude implements of manufacturing pottery,
until now when we use modern manufactur-
ing implements to furnish the world with
most of its sewer pipe.
Any industry that can stand the test of
time is always a sure and sound one. So it
is with our clay industry, which I shall now
The clay in this locality is composed of
silica, aluminum, with small quantities of
magnesia, potash, and iron.
The clay is found in veins ranging from
five to seven feet high and just below the
veins of coal. The clay is mined by the use
of dynamite and powder and then loaded on
small cars and taken to the mouth of the
mine, and here it is dumped into large crush-
ers which grind the large lumps of clay
rock into small pieces the size of eggs. These
small pieces are then put into the dry pan
by means of a conveyor.
In the dry pan the clay is then ground up
into fine particles by means of a heavy rotat-
ing roller. This clay is then taken to the
screen by means of an elevator which is
sifted into the bin. The clay that does not
sift through the screen is then returned to
the dry pan where it is reground.
The fine clay which is in the form of fine
powder is then put into a pan similar to that
of a dry pan where it is mixed with about
thirty percent of Water to make a thick
paste. This pan is called the wet pan.
Now when the clay is in this form it is
then taken to the Afeeder by an elevator.
The clay from the feeder is then fed into the
press. We might say that the press is one
of the most important pieces of machinery
around the sewer pipe plant. It consists of
a large steel cylinder seven inches thick and
from three to four feet in diameter and from
eight to ten feet high. This stands into a
vertical position which at the lower end are
placed the movable dyes the shapes of the
pipes wanted. In this large cylinder there
is a large piston which drives the clay
through the dye. This piston being forced
through the cylinder by many hundreds of
pounds of steam. The press is controlled by
the admission and shutting off of the steam.
The pipe is then taken from the press and
cut off to the desired length where it is taken
to the drying room by means of small trucks.
When the pipe is placed in the drying room
the socket is finished and then left to dry
which takes on the average from a week to
ten days. Now the pipe is again loaded on
small trucks and taken to the kilns where it
is heated to about 1600" Fahrenheit for four
to five days. When the pipe has been burned
several days and has become white hot it is
glazed by adding rock salt in the fire boxes.
Now the pipe is allowed to become cool and
when so it is taken from the kilns and placed
in the yards where it is ready for shipment.
Bricks are also made in this locality by a
very similar process.
The chief industry of the historical Tus-
carawas Valley is furnishing the world with
much of its brick and sewer pipe.

The year was begun with the Community
Fair, September 21 and 22, which was such
a success that it promised a year of even
more than usual interest in school activities.
In addition to the agricultural and culinary
products from members of the community,
samples of school work including the club
work, from all the schools of the district,
were displayed in each of the rooms. Prizes
amounting to over one hundred dollars were
Then a few days later came the County
Fair, at which we received first prize for the
School Exhibit. We received not only this
one prize but other prizes also, in all amount-
ing to over one hundred dollars.
The Parent-Teachers Association has been
very active this year having had four quite
interesting meetings. This organization has
been growing steadily from year to year.
On October 31 there was held a Hallowe'en
Social in the High School Building. Surely
no one who saw the parade needs to be told
what a good time every one had.
The two Literary Societies, Shakespearean
and Lincolnian, were organized in Novem-
ber. They gave several very fine programs
at different times throughout the year.
We observed the weekkof November 19 as
Education Week. Mr. Charles Gutensohn,
Rev. Nitzschke, Mr. Begland and Rev. Ash-
burn gave very interesting and instructive
talks to the High School during this week.
On November 28 a pie social was held at
the High School Building from which the
proceeds were used to purchase basketball
On December 28 the Public Speaking Class
presented two plays, "Aunt Billie From
Texas" and "The Trail Back Home," which
entirely came up to the standard Gnaden-
hutten has always observed in school enter-
We started a campaign January 11 to raise
funds by selling The Country Gentleman,
which was quite successful for we cleared

The County Basketball Tournament was
held on January 23. Gnadenhutten won the
first game from Newcomerstown but Denni-
son defeated us in the second game.
There was nothing more of especial inter-
est until March 1 when we gave the Minstrel
which was a great success, the solos, quar-
tettes, choruses, jokes and monologues be-
ing exceptionally good.
The affirmative debating team, Vera
Shull, Albert Sindlinger, and alternate, Paul
Williams went to Mineral City where they
debated the following question: Resolved
that the Boards of Education of the Tusca-
rawas County School districts should proceed
at once to consolidate all rural schools. The
negative, Francis Nussbaum, Victor Schrein-
er and alternate Mary Pfeiffer, met the Min-
eral City Debaters at Gnadenhutten the fol-
lowing week. We won the debate at home
but lost by a few points at Mineral City. The
debating teams have been awarded the honor
of attending the banquet given by the
County Bar Association.
On March 29 we attended the County Lit-
erary Contest where Esther Ulrich won the
High School Spelling Contest.
The Grades gave their Annual School En-
tertainment on April 11 which was as great
a success as these entertainments always
are. Drills, songs and a playlet made up the
There still remain two activities which
will take place after Easter, the banquet for
the Basketball players and the County Field
The bright year promised by the success
of our first two enterprises has materialized

cessful activities to the many such previous

The Gnadenhutten Hi athletic teams had
a successful season. The boys' basketball
team played eighteen games, eight of which
were victories. This is a good record con-
sidering that six of the eighteen games were
with city high school teams. The Hi second
team played three games, winning all of
them. The Hi varsity should have a very
good team next year as eight of the ten
members of the squad will be back. The
boys who received letters are: Capt. Harold
Thomas, Victor Schreiner, Carl Martin, Paul
Williams, and George Wentz.
The Gnadenhutten Hi girls should have a
good team again next year as they will have
eight girls from the squad back again. The
girls who received letters are: Capt. Gladys
Brown, Vera Shull, Mary Bender, Helen
Frey, Edith Peters, Hazel Gibbons, Edith
Schreiner and Pauline Shull.
At the close of the basketball season,
Gnadenhutten Hi athletes started practicing
the national game. As history repeats itself
Gnadenhutten Hi will, as in the past years,
have another fast baseball team.
At this writing no games have been played
but games are expected to be scheduled with
the following schools: New Philadelphia,
Midvale, Strasburg, and Newcomerstown.
Our track squad will endeavor to put a
fast team on the Cinder path again. They
expect to make a valiant attempt for the
cup at the Tuscarawas County Track and
Field Meet held at Dover, May 3.
At this writing no practices have been
held but all the boys are in shape as they
received good training during basketball
season. J. P. W. '25

7. Everybody happy, last day of school
10. The girls draw their partners for

lutely no say in the matter. Too bad, but
they never say a word. Behold the age of
11. Strong talk of having a Community
Fair. It's a pretty good idea to show what
a progressive community we are. Anyway,
that's what Mr. Sindlinger says. S
12. The argumentary class or in other
words the Senior class, gets into a usual
argument in Occupations this morning.
13. In the words of Patrick Henry, we
say, "Give us liberty" or give us something
to swat those flies."
14. The boys are all excited, squirrel sea-
son opens tomorrow. Look out, Frisky,
"Gnadenites" are reckless shooters.
17. Chemistry aprons come. Now We can
form the "White Apron Brigade" and go on
18. Prof. Sindlinger gives lecture en-
titled: "Fools' names are like their faces,
always found in public places."
19. Miss Lapp gives an individual tone
test. She says, "You haven't such high
voices. you just think you havef, As a result
we have plenty of altos and basses.
20. Watch your step! Tanglefoot every
where. If you are bothered with flies call
at the headquarters and get a fly-paper hat.
21-22. The Community Fair. Every one
there, except those who were afraid of win-
ning the judges' decision as the best freak of
24. We buy a big set of books for the
library. What do you think of that?
25. Boys, don't take any fruit that doesn't
belong to you, it is forbidden fruit and Adam
suffered for such a crime.
26. No school, we get a day off to go to
the County Fair, and buy kewpees and toy
balloons. 1 O O g
27. Hooray! Gnadenhutten school wins
first prize in the school exhibit at the Fair!
28. The Seniors give Chapel. The pro-
fessor says it was worthy of us. We will
consider joining some retired troupe of
1. The Public Speaking class practices
pitch with the piano. The piano was out of
pitch to be sure.
2. The Juniors have another battle royal
with the Seniors and Sophomores in basket-
ball today. They have been trying to beat us
for a week, they say they did it today, but
we don't believe it.
3. Clang! clang! clang! It is only the fire
alarm and it is a good way to wake people
4. The Freshmen play against themselves
today in basketball. The Faculty is afraid to
trust the darlings with the upperclassmen.
5. The Juniors give Chapel. They went
to so much bother to bring Barney Google
and Spark Plug to Gnaden.
8. Chemistry laboratory apparatus ar-
rives, some glad, some sad, too bad!
9. The arguments which took place at
the basketball game at noon seem an indica-
tion that there will be plenty of debaters for
the county match in case we need them.
10. The new song books arrive. Strange,
everybody wants to sing today.
11. The girls take physical exercise today.
If they use those arm swings to their advan-
tage we are afraid there will be some divorce
suits, in say, about ten years.
12. The Sophomore class gives Chapel.
Their main attraction was Sam from Ala-
bam who made a hit with his clogging. The
strange thing about it was that Sam disap-
peared and George Reinke came in late with
a dark complexion under the eyes.
The greatest excitement was observed
when the Senior paper, "The Squealern made
its appearance followed by a criticising edi-
tion from, "The Junior Herald."
15. Prof. ,Sindlinger gives a lecture on
Sulphur in Chemistry and with the promise
of not asking us a question. What is so rare
as a day like this?

have one in November, "Aye there's the

a rumor has been spread that a ring sales-
marrwill be a17Gnaden Hi tomorrow. ee
18. The rumor was true, the Seniors
flocked to the library and in one hour the
salesman left with the Seniors' order tucked
in his pocket. That is something to boast
about, just think coming to a decision on
such an important matter in one hour. That
would make Napoleon sit up and take notice.
19. The Freshmen give Chapel. They
appeared as the Metropolitan Entertainers
from New York. The audacity of such a
presumption is absurd. If they ever saw
New York we are from Missouri.
22. The High School wants to hear the
Public Speaking class, they are entertain-
ing themselves with plays today.
23. The Seniors are the pride of Noah
Webster. They won a spelling contest today.

phatic debate this morning. The chairman
had to use the strongest argument to keep
25. The Seniors have a secret class meet-
ing. Look out, something is doing.
26. The Faculty gives chapel. They
concluded the program by singing "When
the Seniors are old and grey, folks would all
say, yea, they were some kids in their day."
That is the best compliment we have re-
29. Mary Pfeiffer, a prominent member
of the Senior class, receives her second eye-
sight. Remarkably extraordinary! No!

ing, like Pustum, "There's a reason."

The looking glass in the cloak room is
2. No school. The teachers are having a
jubilee at Steubenville. Good for the teach-

from the Women using too much bluing in
the Wash Water.

song again, what can you do when you're
Wet all through in the r-r-r-r-a-a-a-a-i-i-i-i-

Hope those flies freeze.
8. The professor made the announcement
that a large supply of "pi" Was in the other
room and he would like to have some boys
help clean it up. Most of the boys were
eager to help and rushed to the other room.
The "pi" was printer's "pi," but the boys
cleaned it up at that. "Work isn't so bad if
it has a good name," say the boys.
9. The first literary, the Lincolnians are
victorious but look out, the Shakespeareans
are on the War path.
10. The Freshmen, Sophomores and Ju-
niors get their pictures taken. We give our
sympathy to the photographer.
12. The Chemistry class engages in a
clueless hunt for a chemistry notebook.
13. Oh! those proscription lists of Mr.
Sindlinger's. Write up your chemistry ex-
periments or you may lose your head and
get a goose egg.
14. What can be the matter with the boys
todayg they all seem nervous. We Wonder
if rabbit season opening tomorrow is the
cause of it.
15. Several boys sick, with rabbit fever,
16. Talk about telling yarns, it seems in
style today, the boys are all telling about
the rabbit they didn't get. It's hard to be-
lieve them sometimes.
19. Education week starts today. Mr.
Charles Guetensohn gives us a talk on Relig-
20. Rev. Nitzschke gives us a talk on Pa-
21. The boys use football tactics in music
today, they tackle the notes and then hold on.
22. Mr. Begland gives us a fine talk on
23. Rev. Ashburn gives an interesting
talk on Rural Education vs. City Education.
26. "The Goal" staff had a business meet-
ing tonight. They prophesy a better Goal
27. The Chemistry class gassed the
school house today With chlorine. We can
begin to realize what it must have been in

usual. Did you ever hear of a boy that didn't
29. Thanksgiving Day, no school but
plenty of eats.

people eat too much, but you just can't stop
when there is so much good stuff.
3. Cheer leaders elected, now We will
have some organized noise.
4. The Geometry class had a terrible time
this morning. You have our sympathy, but
like Mr. Kennedy says, "The proposition
holds true today, tomorrow, and every day.
'5. The Board of Education and some
High School boys made a record of unload-
ing chairs tonight. That shows what an
education can do.

It is an every day occurrence With us.

tor is at Work with her force and camera.
13. King Winter begins his reign with a

with Dundee. What they needed was more
light on the subject.
17. Excitement? No! It was an anti-
climax in the Seniors' career when their
class rings came. Talk about raising money!
The Seniors raised nearly one hundred dol-
lars, to lift the C. O. D. in less than two
minutes. We wonder what Henry Ford
would say to that.
18. More rejoicing-the Freshmen and
Sophomore pictures arrive. Every place we
go we hear, "Hey! let me see your picture."
19. Gee! we just happened to think it's
six days before Christmas. We hope Santa
Claus doesn't disappoint the Freshies. They
have been so good.

Daddy, if you know we're hungry,
Know that we are very poor,
It must break your heart in Heaven
'Cause you never did insure!
Mamma wonders why you didn't
Save the dimes you threw awayg
But you felt too strong and healthy
For insurance, people say.
You were taken without warning,
Leaving us to light alone,
You'd have taken out insurance,
Daddy if you'd only known!
'Twasn't that you didnlt love us.
I recall how dear you were,
But your little girl must suffer
'Cause you failed to save for her!
Mamma just can't make the living!
She is wearing out she said!
I shall have to miss some schooling?
For the sake of daily bread.
VVhen she's gone I guess they'll take me
To a place of charity
To be clothed and fedg but Daddy,
It can ne'er be home to me.
Mary's Daddy left insurance,
And their home will still be theirls
They're not hungry. Sometimes Mary
Gives me cast-off clothes she wears.
They don't have to take in sewing,
lVlary's mamma doesn't cry,
For her daddy left insurance,-
But you didn't, Daddy,-Why?
Have you arranged matters so when you are gone the family can continue on without em
If not, let me help you to do so.
