Dresden Howard  and the Underground Railroad at Grand Rapids, Ohio

 

 

Col. D. W. H. Howard, of Wauseon, Ohio, the only survivor of this branch, a gentlemen, over eighty years of age, thinks its period of operation is fairly described by the years 1816 to 1835 or '40. He traces the route as follows: "I think the main and principal route crossed the Ohio river near Northbend; thence on a direct line (following the streams practicable) to the upper Auglaize, and the Blanchard's fork of the Auglaize, passing near the Shawnee village where is now the city of Wapakoneta, and to Ocquenesies town on the Blanchard, where is now the village of Ottawa; thence to the Grand Rapids of the Maumee (where the river could be easily forded most of the year), and at the Ottawa village of Chief Kinjeino where all were friendly, and the poor slave was treated kindly; thence a plain trail north to Malden, Canada."


I want to tell here an incident which Col. Howard relates, by way of illustrating the methods used, the obstacles overcome, and the presence of mind needed by Underground Railroaders, from the beginning to the close of the Road's activity.

 

Mr. Howard's story runs mainly as follows: "Ten miles below the Rapids at Roche Teboult or Standing Rock, lived one Richardson, a Kentuckian, who made a living by catching slaves. At one time my father, Edward Howard, was piloting a party of slaves north, and the trail passed only three miles west of Richardson's. In order to avoid being surprised by this man it was necessary to keep a close lookout; and for greater safety the trip north from my father's was always performed in the night. We had a whisper from an Indian friend that this party, which we had kept concealed in the thick swampy forest near our cabin for some time, was being watched and would be ambushed on the way. The night they moved out on the trail, we (I was but a boy, but often accompanied my father) took a circuitous route, hoping to elude pursuit. After veering to our right and reentering the old trail, my father left a boy to guard and bring up the rear. We had not advanced more than three miles, when we plainly heard the beat of horses' hoofs behind us; the guard was posted near the trail, with orders to shoot the horse, if necessary; in a few minutes two horsemen approached the ambuscade and in a second more, the sharp crack of a rifle echoed through the forest, and the horse with a groan plunged to the ground. This checked the pursuing party, and gave stimulus and speed to the feet of the fugitives. The slave-catchers were now afraid to advance, and retreated over the trail, and the fugitives, though badly frightened, were permitted to continue their march to freedom unmolested. "


We have seen that the line of road on which this incident occurred was probably the oldest in Ohio. It did not long remain the only route. The earnest teaching of Lundy and Rankin was imparted to minds open to truth. Indeed the Quaker grounded in abolition sentiments.

 

Colonel Howard’s eulogy by Judge Hamilton of Toledo hauntingly mentions Colonel Dresden Howard’s love of the Indians and how he and his father led the fugitives to freedom in the dark of the night.   The agents of the Underground in Ms. Eicher’s family usually took the route north from West Barre to Winameg.  Her family also took their ‘charges’ to the King farm as it was a site close to the Michigan border.  Robert McClarren, Colonel Howard’s grandson, comments that Winameg is a day’s ride from the Maumee River going north and rescue parties would have untilized the Winameg camp at it sat directly on the crossroads of several of the Indian trails.  The terminus of the northern route would have been Malden in Canada.
   


Winameg, Pike Township Fulton County Ohio

 

 

Winameg  (Also known as DeMutre & Indian name was Neshenowba)


Was also known as Aetna and is located at the intersection of Co Rd 10-2 and Co. Rd. L.  The old Pike Twp. School building still stands there as well as the Aetna Grange and the new Pike Twp Hall.  The corner store burned several years ago but there are several residences that still remain there including the Colonel Dresden Howard homestead which is now the home Dresden's great grandson Lawrence McClarren.

Howard, Robert Armstrong
THE LIFE OF ROBERT ARMSTRONG HOWARD

Born in Geneva, Ontario County, New York on November 10, 1798 to Thomas and Elizabeth Howard.  He joined a family of three older brothers, William ,  Alexander; and Edward.  Also welcoming the new baby was his 3 year old sister Sidney II, born. 5 November 1795 in Geneva, one of the earliest children born in this frontier town.  Three years later, a younger brother Richard Montgomery Williams Howard.

Of his boyhood we know very little.  His father Thomas purchased several parcels of land in the town of Geneva and later in the country east of the village of Benton, and about one mile north of Hopeton. New York.  The family lived in Ontario County New York from 1794 until 1821.

On May 22, 1821, Robert joined his father Thomas Howard, older brother Edward Howard and wife, Nancy Haight Howard, and younger brother Richard Howard and also two children--niece Sidney (daughter of William Howard) and nephew, Dresden Winfield Huston Howard as they left their home on the banks of Seneca Lake, near Geneva for the Ohio country.

 After a twenty-six day trip they finally arrived at the little village of Orleans, a small hamlet under Ft. Meigs.  Originally they had hoped to go to Tecumseh (now known as Ann Arbor, Michigan, but the residents of Orleans persuaded them to stay on the Maumee.  After spending the first winter near the fort, Thomas purchased lands at Gilead in 1822 and finally in the spring of 1823 cut a road from the Indian Mission, eight miles below, through a dense wilderness to the rapids of the Maumee, where they founded their settlement.

All the families along with Grandfather Thomas lived upon their original purchases, clearing away forest and making for themselves comfortable homes.  With a home for his bride, Robert A. returned to New York and married his sweetheart, Priscilla Nelson in February of 1823, bringing her back to Ohio with in the late spring of that year.

 On  a cold winter day in January of 1824, their first child arrived,--a daughter names Phoebe Adaline.  Next they were blessed with a set of twins, Aurelia Augusta and Aurelius Augustus, born January  1826. Nelson Montgomery arrived on January 21, 1828 and William Henry was born on November 14, 1829.  Two more sons arrived while they lived in Gilead, Edwin Alexander on May 11, 1832 and Richard William on September 24, 1834.

In 1835 Robert A. Howard sold the farm in Wood County,  and removed to the place on which he died  in York Township, Lucas County, Ohio. There he and Priscilla had two more sons, James Walter, in 1837 and Thomas Corwin in 1840.   "Many hands make light the work " around a farm and Robert and Priscilla had seven sons to help out!

 Robert A. Howard immediately took high rank among the early settlers of that part of Lucas county, and was "very soon made a Justice of the Peace, which office he held for many years and used it as a means of effecting a settlement of differences between his neighbors, rather than as a means of litigation. "He was a just man, and his advice, oftener than his judgment was made the basis of the adjustment of controversies brought before him."

The first county court under traveling Judge Saddler was held at the Robert A. Howard home in 1850.  Interestingly enough, it was Judge Saddler who introduced baseball to the Pike Township community.

After the county of Fulton was established in 1850, Robert A. Howard was employed by the Commissioners to transcribe the records in the Recorder's offices of the old counties for the use of the new.  He traveled many miles away from home to copy these valuable records.  He was also elected Recorder of Fulton County and in the performance of all his duties, proved himself a faithful
and conscientious officer.

In the early days of Fulton County, the Howard home provided a  stopping place for the weary emigrant in his long and tiresome journey westward.  Sometimes as many as thirty travelers were in their home.

One of the earliest post offices established in Fulton County was located in Robert Howard's log house.  It was named Essex and served as the post office until abandoned in 1851 when the county seat was built at Ottokee.

When Ottokee was located near the geographic center of the county, the land was nearly all covered by forests.  The Howard home, a large log house located three and one-half miles east of Ottokee was designated as the place where common pleas court should be held until a court house could be built at Ottokee.  It is on record that one or two terms of the court of common pleas were held in this log house before the new court house was finished and ready for use.

Robert A. Howard's lovely wife, Priscilla Nelson Howard was born on February  1799 at Fishkill, New York, the daughter of Phineas and Hannah Lane Nelson.  She was descended from early Dutch settlers in New Amsterdam (New York City).  Priscilla died on May 7, 1872 at the family home in Winameg, Pike Township, Ohio..  Her death certificate reads "Worn Out."  Seventy-three years was a long and lengthy life in those days.

After Priscilla's death, Robert lost his interest in living and six months later he died of what the family considers a broken heart -- November 26, 1872.  They are both buried in the family plot in the Salisbury Cemetery, Pike Township, Fulton County, Ohio.

                                                Obituary

 
Last rites, in cowboy order, were held today for John Thomas McMullin, 67, who died early Sunday morning at Holy Cross Hospital after a few days illness.  The funeral procession formed at Burrh Camp and proceeded to Sierra Vista Cemetery with a group of horsemen accompanying the hearse.  "Mac's" favorite horse was led behind the funeral coach with three horsemen leading the procession and with about 15 horsemen following.  At the cemetery Doughbelly Price, an old firend of Mac, delivered the last words for the old cowpuncher while seated on his horse.  Pall bearers were Walter Witt, Malaquias Martinez, Pete Barela, J.T. Mackie, Bert Baca and Mike Cunico.  Mac came to this section of the country from the Oklahoma Territory and  then to Taos in about 1920.  In the early days in Oklahoma he was knows as "Curley John" and was at one time a close friend of the late Belle Starr.  He came to this section as a government trapper.  For several years prior to his death he lived on his place where the Vegas highway crosses Pot Creek.  He had many friends in all walks of life, and will be remembered by all for his cheery disposition and clean appearance and his kindness to others.  His relatives, if any, could not be contacted.  He was reported to have a son but his whereabouts is unknown.

Notes for Dresden Winfield Huston Howard:
Obituary
It was fitting that a man brought up from the pioneer's log cabin and the Indian's wigwam to be a leader and legislator of a great state should die in a farm home on the site of an Indian village. Col. Dresden Winfield Huston Howard  died at his home, at Winameg on Tuesday morning, Nov. 9, 1897, just past 80yrs.  of age, after a life of activity and usefulness such as few men live.  From early childhood he had been actively identified with the development of this state, from the time when as a boy he advanced the early trading with the Indians to when even in advanced years he aided in the direction of state affairs and institutions.  The death  of Col. Howard had been long expected, as he had suffered from a cancer on his lower lip for more that two years and lately it was known that  the end was close at hand.  The funeral was set from the home at Winameg,  the Reverend J. W. Lully of Hicksville to conduct services.  General  J. Kent  Hamilton of Toledo was invited to deliver the funeral oration at the tomb in  compliance with a request made by Col. Howard before his death.  The body  was placed in a vault which he had constructed in the cemetery at Winameg. 
H. T. Brigham and Col. E. L. Barber of Wauseon were among the pall bearers.
Col. Howard was born in Dresden Yates Co. New York on Nov 3, 1817.

690 -692 HISTORY OF TOLEDO AND LUCAS COUNTY.

DRESDEN W. H. HOWARD was born in Yates County, New York, November 3, 1817. He wits a son of Edward, his grandfather being Thomas Howard. May 22, 1821, the grandfather, with his sons Edward, Robert A. and Richard, their wives and two children (Dresden and a cousin named Sidney), and a daughter of Sidney H. Nelson, left their pleasant homes on the banks of Seneca, Lake, near Geneva, for the West. The grandfather rode on horseback, the families and small supplies of clothing and household goods being loaded into two two-horse covered wagons. In due time, over roads almost impassable, the party reached the then Village of Buffalo. Here, the grandfather, with the women and children, embarked on board a 30-ton Schooner (name not remembered), commanded by Captain Anson Reed, for along and perilous voyage to Fort Meigs, 14 miles above the mouth of the Maumee River. This destination was reached at dusk, Tune 17th, after a trip of 26 days, where they were cordially welcomed by the few white settlers at" Orleans," the little hamlet under the Fort. Dresden's recollection of the scene that met his view on entering the mouth of the River, about 10 o'clock A. M., is yet very clear to him. The dark color of the water of the River was in strong contrast with that of the clear water of the Lake. The scene of chief interest as they slowly passed up the stream, consisted of the white tents of Indians camped on the West bank, from the house of Major Stickney (near Bush Street), to the mouth of Swan Creek-the Indians being there on business with Major Stickney, then Indian Agent for the Government. They were actively engaged in racing and other sports peculiar to Indians; but upon discovering the little Vessel, they gave one wild (to the passengers, unearthly) yell, and ran down the bank, to get as near as possible to the craft. While the boy was deeply interested in the scene, the `,women were crouched in deadly fear on the deck at such first view of the locality which was to be their home. The Vessel made slow progress up the River, with nothing to be seen but the primeval forest which lined its banks, and a deer and her fawn which had Sought protection in the water front swarms of musquitoes, or from some hungry wolf. In due time, the end of the journey was reached. The teams were many days behind the arrival of the Vessel, they having in bad roads-especially through the "Black Swamp "more to overcome than the calms and adverse winds of the Lake. The real destination of the party was Tecumseh, or An-au-ba (now known as Ann Arbor), Michigan ; but the persuasions of the Hollisters, Spaffords, Forsyths, General Hunt and other residents induced them to stop, when they soon were quartered in little cabins of bark-covered walls. Some cleared land was rented, and a small crop of corn, potatoes, pumpkins, squashes, etc., soon planted. With " dog days " came .ague and fever, attended by want and privation known to none but the pioneer. Several times the entire family was prostrated, with no one able to attend upon the sick. The frosts of' October were patiently awaited is the only source of relief' to the sufferers; which season was made the more grateful for the abundant supply of fish and corn "pone," which it brought. The grandfather had little means with which to start in the new home. He first entered 160 acres of Government lands, where now is the Village of Woodville, Sandusky County ; but the Black Swamp proved too much for him, and he abandoned his purchase, subsequently selling it to Amos E. Wood, the founder of Woodville. In 1822, lands were purchased at Grand Rapids, Wood County, when cabins were built for Edward, Robert A. and Richard Howard ; and in the Spring of 1823 they cut a road front the Indian Mission, eight miles below, through a dense wilderness to the Grand Rapids of the Maumee, and founded a settlement immediately opposite the Ottawa Indian Village of Kin jo-ino and Reservation of 12 miles square, at the head of the Rapids.

All of the families, with the grandfather, lived upon their original purchases, cleared away the forests, and made for themselves comfortable homes (save Robert A., who sold his place in 183(;, and moved to what now is Fulton County, where he died), and in due time were "gathered to their fathers," their bodies resting on the banks of the Maumee, within hearing of the never-ceasing murmur of the Rapids.


Edward Howard (the father of Dresden)
was a Soldier in the War of 1812-15, as was Thomas in the Revolutionary War. The former was at the battles of Lundy's Lane and Fort Erie. He was never robust after the War, and died in 1841. The mother (Nancy Haight Howard) survived him until 1881, dying at the age of 84 years, and being buried beside her husband. The children were Dresden; one brother, James Monroe, born in Yates County, New York; and one sister (Anjinette), born in Wood County. James died in 1841 ; and the sister is the wife of Hon. George Laskey, of Toledo. Coming here in childhood, with Indian boys for playmates, Dresden learned the languages of the several tribes in the Valley, and became more or less attached to Indian life. His inclinations early turned toward Indian trade and the hunter's life. The fur trade with the tribes was then a lucrative business, and his readiness with their dialects made his services in demand by traders, who paid well for them. With others, he was employed by Government Agents in collecting the wandering bands for removal to their new homes beyond the Mississippi in 1832, and again in 1838. In 1832 he aided the removal, when they were transported across the country by wagons and on the backs of their ponies. For a boy, the trip was attractive. Scarcely any settlement was passed for the whole distance. The Indians were located on the banks of the Osage River (now in Kansas), where is the Town of Ottawa, named for the tribe. In 1840, Mr. Howard was employed by W. G. and Geo. W. Ewing, fur traders at Fort Wayne, Indiana, to take a stock of Indian goods up the Missouri River, and open trade with the Omahas, Missouries, lower Sioux, Pottawatomies and other tribes inhabiting the Valley and tributaries of that stream. His father and brother dying in 1841, made it necessary for him to return and care for an invalid mother and his sister, and accept the more quiet life of farming and civilization, for which his previous experience had done little toward fitting him. His school days (from seven to 10 years) were entirely spent at the " Old Indian Mission," 10 miles above Fort Meigs, in a School of 100 Indian children-he being the only White pupil, save a few Indian and French halfbreed boys and girls. That School was organized by the Home Missionary Society of New England, and was closed upon the removal of the Indians in 1838.

The tribes inhabiting the Valley of the Maumee, and also that of the Wabash and their tributaries, at the time of Mr. Howard's earliest recollections (and for many years before), were the Ottawas, Pottawatomies, Miamis, We-aws, Piankishaws, Shawnees and Delawares, with a few of the Ochibewas and Muncies. The principal Chiefs of the Ottawas were Na-wash, O-to-saw, Char-lo, Oc-que-noxie, Kin-jo-a-no, Ot-to-kee, Wa-se-on, Wa-seon-i-quet, and others. Of the Pottawatomies, were Waw-bon-see, Baw-beece, Me-to-ah, Wina-meg; of the Miamis, La Fontain and Richardville, with many others, whose names are not recalled ; of Shawnees, were Joseph and William Parks, whose Reservation was at Wapa-kon-neta. The Walkers (half-breeds) were principal men among the Wyandotts at Upper Sandusky. Turkey Foot (Mis-sis-sa-inzit), was a noted Ottawa Chief, as was O-to-saw. Little Turtle (Mis-she-kenee) perhaps was the most noted, as he was the most intelligent Chief of the Miamis, whom, Mr. Howard thinks, lies buried near Fort Wayne, Indiana. Turkey Foot was buried near the rock from which he harangued his Braves when he fell, pierced with a bullet from one of Wayne's Soldiers, August 20, 1794. Mr. Howard's memory is stored with facts and associations connected with the aboriginal tribes with whom he was so long intimate. When asked by Governor Noyes, of Ohio, why he always spoke with such special kindness of the Indians, he replied, " They have always, in childhood and in manhood, treated me with kindness, and I could not be ungrateful for their uniform generosity. Treat an Indian justly, and you will secure his friendship for life. Treat him illy, and you have his enmity for life." Mr. Howard's present residence is on the site of the old Indian Village of Winameg, Fulton County, where the former residents so long enjoyed savage life, and where so many of them found their last resting place, which is now carefully protected. The Red Man has taken his last drink frona the shaded spring at the foot of the hill, his last look upon the landscape so long his pride, and now sleeps nearer the setting Sun. In the Spring of 1827-28, Mr. Howard-then a boy of 10 years-first visited that locality, and there ate his first bowl of hominy and roast of venison, and tools his first drink from the pure waters of the spring. The Indians had just returned from their Winter hunting-grounds in the pine and sugar-maple forest of the then wild Terriritory, now the fertile and rich State of Michigan, where they had enjoyed a successful hunt; bringing in a bountiful supply of Maple sugar (of which they were fond). They were having their annual dance or worship of the Great Spirit (Chi Manitoo), returning thanks for success in the hunt, and asking for a prosperous season to come. For the Summer, the women were to plant and hoe, while the men, beside lounging about, were to look for an occasional door. Corn, beans and pumpkins are still planted there; but not by the faithful, patient squaws of former days.

Mr. Howard, with all his early attachment for the primitive ways of the Indians, has not been backward in promoting, the methods and means of Christian civilization. For forty years past he has been identified, to greater or less extent with the agricultural, the financial, the political, and the social movements of the age, seeking faithfully to meet his full duty in these several relations of life. In promoting the construction of good roads, elevating the farming interests, and the establishment of sound morals and general education, he has been active. In 1870 he represented the Tenth District on the State Board of Equalization. Elected to the State Senate in 1871 frona the Thirty-Third District, he served in that body for two years. In 1860 he was Presidential Elector, casting the vote of the Fifth Congressional District for Abraham Lincoln. Of all his record in connection with elections, that which gives him his chief pride, was made in the fight for the exclusion of the sale of intoxicating liquors at Wauseon, in April, 1887. He was appointed by Governor Foraker, April 1, 1887, a Trustee of the Toledo Asylum for the Insane, constructed for the State, near Toledo. Mr. Howard was married in 1843 with Mary B. Copeland. There were born to them two children-Osceola E. M., Civil Engineer, of San Diego, California ; and M. Agnes, now residing with her parents at Wauseon, Ohio.

There were five such outlets along Ohio?s lake frontage. These were Toledo, Sandusky, Cleveland, Fairport Harbor (near Painsville), and Ashtabula Harbor. Toledo and fifty miles beyond it Detroit, were the shipping points for perhaps the oldest section of the Road in Ohio, though by no means the longest lived.

Col. D. W. H. Howard, of Wauseon, Ohio, the only survivor of this branch, a gentlemen, over eighty years of age, thinks its period of operation is fairly described by the years 1816 to 1835 or ?40. He traces the route as follows: ?I think the main and principal route crossed the Ohio river near Northbend; thence on a direct line (following the streams practicable) to the upper Auglaize, and the Blanchard?s fork of the Auglaize, passing near the Shawnee village where is now the city of Wapakoneta, and to Ocquenesies town on the Blanchard, where is now the village of Ottawa; thence to the Grand Rapids of the Maumee (where the river could be easily forded most of the year), and at the Ottawa village of Chief Kinjeino where all were friendly, and the poor slave was treated kindly; thence
a plain trail north to Malden, Canada.?

I want to tell here an incident which Col. Howard relates, by way of illustrating the methods used, the obstacles overcome, and the presence of mind needed by Underground Railroaders, from the beginning to the close of the Road?s activity.

Mr. Howard?s story runs mainly as follows: Ten miles below the Rapids at Roche Teboult or Standing Rock, lived one Richardson, a Kentuckian, who made a living by catching slaves. At one time my father, Edward Howard, was piloting a party of slaves north, and the trail passed only three miles west of Richardson?s. In order to avoid being surprised by this man it was necessary to keep a close lookout; and for greater safety the trip north from my father?s was always performed in the night. We had a whisper from an Indian friend that this party, which we had kept concealed in the thick swampy forest near our cabin for some time, was being watched and would be ambushed on the way. The night they moved out on the trail, we (I was but a boy, but often accompanied my father) took a circuitous route, hoping to elude pursuit. After veering to our right and reentering the old trail, my father left a boy to guard and bring up the rear. We had not advanced more than three miles, when we plainly heard the beat of horses? hoofs behind us; the guard was posted near the trail, with orders to shoot the horse, if necessary; in a few minutes two horsemen approached the ambuscade and in a second more, the sharp crack of a rifle echoed through the forest, and the horse with a groan plunged to the ground. This checked the pursuing party, and gave stimulus and speed to the feet of the fugitives. The slave-catchers were now afraid to advance, and retreated over the trail, and the fugitives, though badly frightened, were permitted to continue their march to freedom unmolested.

        85.  Dresden William Howard5 McClarren (Mary Agnes4 Howard, Dresden Winfield Huston3, Edward2, Thomas1) was born May 05, 1895.  He married Norma Leona Whiteman December 25, 1919, daughter of Herbert Whiteman and Margaret Bonnell.  She was born October 20, 1895.

Notes for Norma Leona Whiteman:
Norma Leona Whiteman, eldest daughter of Herbert Lincoln Whiteman and his wife, Margaret Estella Bonnell Whiteman, was born on October 20, 1895, in the Whiteman farm home at Bonnell's Corners. She attended the one-room Bonnell School and in 1910 took and passed with high marks the Patterson-Boxwell Examination then required in Ohio for all pupils entering a first-grade high school. She attended the Wauseon High School for four years, graduating in the Class of 1914. She later taught at the Williams School east of Wauseon. But this was First World War time and she decided to take nurses training. For her training she selected the Lakeside Hospital Nurses Training School in Cleveland (now the Western Reserve School of Nursing), where she graduated in June, 1919. Subsequently, she passed the State Board Examination and became a registered nurse in the State of Ohio.
     On December 25, 1919, she married Howard McClarren, great-grandson of Col. Dresden William Howard (friend of the Indians and the second white child to attend mission school at Grand Rapids, Ohio, where he played and learned the language of the Indian boys). After her marriage Norma lived for a brief time on the McClarrenHoward farm near Winameg, in Fulton County. Later, she lived in the Columbus-Westerville area where her husband graduated at Ohio State University, School of Agriculture, and later was identified with the program of Vocational Agriculture in Ohio. In the early 1940's they moved to Washington, D.C. There Norma practiced professionally, first with Dr. H. Ford Anderson and later with Dr. Ernest Sheppard while Mr. McClarren continued work in his field. In 1962 they retired to the Westerville-Columbus area, where Norma died on July 26, 1974. She left surviving a son, Robert R. McClarren, who married Margaret Weed of Westerville, Ohio. In World War II, he served in Europe with the 14th Armored Division, and later, as a Reserve officer, served in the Korean War. He holds a Master's degree in library science from Columbia University and is presently an assistant state librarian in the State of Illinois. Norma also left surviving a daughter, Margaret Ann McClarren White, who is a graduate of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and is married to Dr. A. Wayne White of Houston, Texas.
