A Couple More "Golden Gems" from Google Books

I came across this lovely 1940 description of Sandusky while I was on a search for something else!

The article about Sandusky from the book entitled Ohio: The Ohio Guide, by the Federal Writers' Project,(available at Google Books) continues with this paragraph:

Another item that I accessed via Google Books is this partial listing of Revolutionary War soldiers who are buried in Erie County. This listing comes from A STANDARD HISTORY OF ERIE COUNTY, by Hewson L. Peeke.

Go to Google Books to read the article in its entirety. Check Google Books for full text articles about the history of the counties in the states where your ancestors resided.
