Introduction

During the summer of 1941, William Henry Stanton of Ridley Park, Pennsylvania, in his eighty-first year, expressed his wish while visiting his numerous friends and relatives of Stillwater Quarterly Meeting, East of Barnesville, Ohio, that some history be written of the development of this section of Belmont County which started in the early 1800s.

As he talked of "Old Homesteads" and the primitive ways of living with these people, they became deeply interested in this thought of writing about their experiences of earlier years and the stories they had heard from their parents and grandparents and early settlers.

To make this "Little Home History" possible, we are indebted to those who have so faithfully written to him with their stories and past experiences and hope that the coming generation shall enjoy reading it and benefit from the stories related herein by their ancestors and friends.

Note: The resulting publication -- Little Home Histories in Our Early Homes, Belmont County, Ohio -- was published in 1942. It was "multigraphed" by L.S. Haines Co., 90 Chester Pike, Collingdale, PA.
