The distinguishing feature of Barnesville lies in the quantity and quality of itís strawberry
production.  Twenty-five years ago very few strawberries were grown in this community. 
In the spring of 1860 the late William Smith introduced, and with C. G. Smith, John
Scoles, and a few others, cultivated in limited quailtities for the home market the Wilson
Albany Seedling.  The demand was small at first, but steadily increased, until shipments
are now 1,000 bushels per day, of which 800 go to Chicago, the balance divided among a
number of points East and West; and the fame of the Barnesville strawberry has extended
not only over the entire country but into foreign countries, even "so far as Russia."   The
shipping trade opened about 1870; first to Columbus and Wheeling, and later to other
near points.  In 1880 James Edgerton tried the experiment of shipping to Chicago, but not
until two years later did that trade assume large proportions.  There are about 275 acres
devoted to strawberry culture, the average yield about ninety-four bushels per acre.  The
Sharpless, the favorite variety, is a large, sightly fruit, well colored, fine flavored, and
will stand transportation to distant cities.  Other popular berries are the Cumberland,
Charles Downing, Wilson, Crescent, and Jaconda; but the Barnesville growers say, "The
Sharpless is our pride."  The care, commendable rivalry, and pride of the Barnesville
growers, which, with a soil and climate specially adapted to the growth of a large, hardy
berry, has developed this great industry.
The first settlement of Warren, the township in which Barnesville is situated, was made
in 1800, the last year of the last century.  The first settlers were George Shannon (the
father of Gov. Shannon), John Grier, and John Dougherty; soon others followed.  The
great body of the pioneers were nearly all Quakers from North Carolina, Pennsylvania,
and Maryland.  In 1804 they built a log meetinghouse, and a woman, Ruth Boswell,
preached there the first sermon ever delivered in the township.  This spot where the
Stillwater church now stands has been occupied by the Friends from that day to this, and
over 7,000 meetings for worship have been held there; and the entire 7,000, we venture
to say, breathed nothing but "Peace on earth and good-will to man."
WILLIAM WINDOM, who was Secretary of the Treasury under Garfield, and has twice
represented Minnesota in the United States Senate, is a native of this county, where he
was born May 10, 1827.
Antiquities. - In the vicinity of Barnesville are some extraordinary natural and artificial
curiosities.  About two miles south of the town, on the summit of a hill on the old Riggs
farm, is a stone called "Goblet Rock" from its general resemblance to a goblet.  Its
average height is nine feet, circumference at base fifteen feet nine inches, mid
circumference eighteen feet, and top circumference thirty-one feet four inches.  The
whole stone can be shaken into a sensible tremble by one standing on the top.
A few miles west of Barnesville are two ancient works, on the lands of Jesse Jarvis and
James Nuzzum. On that of the latter is one of the largest of mounds, it being about 1,800
feet in circumference and 90 feet in height.
Among the most interesting relics of the mound-building race are the "Barnesville track
rocks" on the sand rock of the coal measure located on the lands of Robert G. Price. 
They were discovered in 1856 by a son of Mr. Price.  The tracks are those of birds',
animals' and human feet, and other figures, as shellfish, serpents, earthworm's, circles,
stars, etc.; these indentations vary from two to over twenty inches in length.  The depths
of the impressions are from three-fourths of an inch to a scale hardly perceptible.  These
are evidently the work of a mound race sculptor.  The track rocks are described and
pictorially shown in the U.S. Centennial Commission Report for Ohio.
MARTIN'S FERRY is on the west bank of the Ohio river opposite Wheeling, W. Va. 
The site of the city is a broad river bottom over two miles in length and extending
westward to the foot-hills a distance of a mile and a half at the widest point.  The
adjacent hills rise gradually and afford many beautiful building sites overlooking the
river, giving a view not excelled at any point on the Ohio. The city is underlaid with an 
inexhaustible supply of coal.  A bountiful supply of building stone and limestone is found
within the corporation limits, and natural gas has been struck in ample quantities for the
town's needs.
The first settlement was made and called Norristown in 1785, but, upon complaint of the
Indians that the whites were encroaching on their hunting-grounds, the settlers were
dispossessed and driven to the other side of the river by Col. Harmer, acting under the
orders of the United States government.  In 1788 the ground upon which the town is built
was granted by patent to Absalom Martin, and in 1795 he laid out a town and called it
Jefferson.  But, having failed in his efforts to have it made the county-seat, Mr. Martin
purchased such town lots as had been already sold and vacated the town, supposing a
town could never exist so near Wheeling.
In 1835 Ebenezer Martin laid out and platted the town of Martinsville, but afterwards
changed the name to Martin's Ferry, there being another town in the State named
Martinsville.  As no point on the Ohio presented better facilities for manufacturing, it
grew and prospered and in 1865 was incorporated as a town.
Martin's Ferry is on the line of the P. C. & St. L. R. R. Newspapers: Ohio Valley News,

The cultivation of grapes is an important and growing industry of Martin's Ferry, the
warm valley and sunny eastern slopes west of the town being especially adapted to their
perfection; not less than 350 acres are devoted to their cultivation.  The grapes are made
into wine by the Ohio Wine Co., which has recently erected a large building for this
The dwellings at Martin's Ferry are mostly on a second plateau about 600 feet from the
Ohio and 100 feet above it.  The river hills on both sides rise to an altitude of about 600
feet, making the site of the town one of grandeur. On the West Virginia side the hills are
very precipitous, leaving between them and the river bank but little more than sufficient
space for a road and the line of the P. C. & St. L. Railroad. The upper plateau at Bellaire
is a gravel and sand bed.  The gravel is about eighty feet deep in places, cemented so
strongly that the excavation for buildings is very expensive, being impervious to the pick
and often from the porous nature of the soil blasting fails; the cost of excavating for the
cellar of a building often exceeds the price of the lot.  The west part of the upper plateau
is depressed, and it is supposed was once the bed of the Ohio.  The country back is very
fertile and rich in coal, iron and limestone.
Annexed is a view of the cottage at Martin's Ferry in which, March 1, 1837, was born
WM. DEAN HOWELLS, who is considered "America's Leading Writer of Fiction."  The
structure was of brick and was destroyed to make way for the track of the Cleveland and
Pittsburg railway.  It was drawn at our desire from memory by the venerated father of the
author, who built it and is now living in a pleasant old age at Jefferson, Ashtabula county.  
The Howells away back were of literary tastes, of Welsh stock and Quakers.  When the
boy was theee years of age the family removed to Butler county, where his father 
published the Hamilton Intelligencer, and William while a mere child learned to set type. 
From thence they removed to Dayton, where the elder Howells purchased the Dayton
Transcipt and changed it into a daily.  His sons aided him in the type-setting, William
often working until near midnight and then rising at four o'clock to distribute the paper.  
The enterprise illustrated industry agaist ill fate. After a two-years' strggle Mr. Howells
one day announced to his sons the enterprise was a failure, whereupon they all went
down to the Big Miami and took a good swim to freshen up for another tug with fate.
In 1851, when fourteen years of age, he got a position as compositor on the Ohio State
Journal at Columbus.  His pay was four dollars per week, which was the first money he
earned and received as his own.  This he turned into the uses of the family to help fight
the wolf from the door.  While there, conjointly with a brother compositor, John J. Piatt,
he put forth a volume of poetry.  Later he contributed poems to the Atlantic 
Monthly, was a newspaper correspondent, wrote a campaign life of Lincoln: from 1861
to 1864 was consul at Venice; from 1866 to 1872 was assistant editor of the Atlantic
Monthly, and then until 1881 editor-in-chief.  Mr. Howells works in a field which is
pre-eminently his own - that of social life.  He has a happy home, wife and children in
Beacon St., Boston, where he devotes his mornings to writing, usually completing at a
sitting a trifle more than what would make one-and-a-half pages as this in which our
printer sets these lines - say 1500 words a day.
Flushing and Morristown are villages, containing each from sixty to eighty dwellings, in 
this county.

"A very pleasant family reunion was held at the residence of Benjamin LOCKWOOD, at Dille's Bottom, on the 13th on the occasion of the celebration of his 80th birth day. A large number of relatives and friends were present, among whom were two younger brothers, Col. J. H. LOCKWOOD, of Moundsville and J. M. LOCKWOOD of Dille's Bottom; two married daughters and their husbands, M. M. FOWLER, of Moundsville and Wm. W.

After the good things had been properly discussed, Mr. W. H. SEYMOUR read the following acrostic:

Beneath the weight of eighty years that o'er thy head hath rolled;
Endeared to us who know thy heart is pure as virgin gold.
No longer in the spring-time of thy boyhood's lightsomness,
Joyous as the wind that woos the powers with soft caress.
Afloat upon time's ocean are those days too sweet to last.
Mourning alone, oftimes recalls the blithe and blissful past;
It lingers wistfully around that happy time 
Noting the years which in their train bring manhood's glorious prime.
Linger, sweet memories, while you may, for time must softly roll 
Onward and onward until we reach our goal.
Cheerful, open-handed, energetic, staunch and true, 
Kind of heart, to others doing as he would wish them to do.
We honor thee, old patriarch, a good race hast thou ran
O'er nature's time allotted as the period of life's span.
Our voices greet thee lovingly, on this thy natal day.
Dear to us all, long may it be ere thou art called away.

The reading over, appropriate short speeches were made by the host, Benjamin LOCKWOOD, Col. J. H. LOCKWOOD, Col. John THOMPSON and W. H. SEYMOUR. Next was the presentation by the children of W. H. SEYMOUR, great grand children of Mr. LOCKWOOD, of a beautiful inlaid box with plate engraved and portraits of the donors; also a silver shaving cup and apparatus complete. His grandchildren presented him with a handsome 6x8 photograph of his mother, enlarged from an old daguerreotype, in walnut and guilt [my note: sic] frame." Mr. LOCKWOOD is yet quite hale and hearty for one of his years.

ROBERT MILLS - Robert, a son of Benjamin MILLS, deceased, came to Barnesville in 1809. He was a saddler, the first in the place, and in later years purchased the Philip ALLEN tannery, managing for many years both trades, and connecting also farming and hotel-keeping with them. He married in 1812 Patience SHORT, a member of the family of James M. ROUND. Her parents died in Delaware when she was a small child, and she accompanied Mr. ROUND's family on their journey to Barnesville. This marriage is said to have been the first in Barnesville. She died in 1860, in her sixty-fourth year. He died in 1867, aged eighty-three.

The Barnesville Enterprise of that date contained the following obituary concerning him:
"Death of an Old Citizen - On Thursday last Barnesville lost one of her oldest and most respected citizens - Robert MILLS, Esq. - who died at his residence in this place, at the ripe old age of eighty-three. Robert MILLS was born in Lancaster county, Pa., came to Ohio in 1809, and settled at Barnesville one year after the town had been laid out. At that time two or three cabins marked the spot where now stands a flourishing town, and the bears and wolves frequently came to what now are the most prominent streets.

For fifty-eight years Mr. MILLS resided in the town he chose in his early manhood, and witnessed all the changes that were wrought in that time. The men with whom he first worked and associated have long since passed away, and others were born and grew old while he remained. For many years he has been a landmark of the past, to whom every one paid reverence due to honorable men. Everybody who has lived in Barnesville remembers Robert MILLS, and all will bear testimony to his honesty and integrity. He was positive in his opinions and positive in expressing these opinions, yet no one doubted the honesty or the sincerity of the man.

From his habits he admired the customs of the past, and thought the "good old days" were better for honor, truth and virtue than the latter years of his life. He died as he had lived, respected by all, and beloved by those who knew him well.

Time nor space will not permit us to treat the subject as it deserves, and we hope some one better acquainted with the life and character of Mr. MILLS will furnish an obituary for publication."
