Pioneer Sketches of
Madison Township,
Lake County, Ohio

Joseph C. Hager, Ph.D.
Editor

This book contains stories of the settlement of Madison township, Lake County, Ohio, as told by the pioneers themselves. Their words transport the reader to a time and condition forgotten by the modern world. To recount and remember their deeds and lives is a step towards better understanding of our present circumstances and ourselves.

I transcribed this document from a microfilm copy of an original manuscript long sequestered in the archives of the Western Reserve Historical Society's Library. After considerable effort, this work is now ready for a wider audience. Its message is one that descendants of the Western Reserve's pioneers, indeed the descendants of all Midwestern pioneers, should hear. I am sure this is the end that the pioneers intended for their efforts.

The centerpiece of this collection of manuscripts is an essay by Joel Blakeslee. More than merely enumerating the progress of his age, Joel Blakeslee perceived that in the struggle to subdue the wilderness, some things were lost that perhaps we would be better to have retained. He celebrates the accomplishments of his generation, but avoids reducing progress simply to disposing of the old and traditional. This distinction is one all Americans might consider.
