Olden Time Relics

The Marietta Intelligencer, March 3, 1859

As the relics of olden time are fast disappearing from our city, it may not be amiss to make a few notes of them by way of remembrances. The tearing down of the old frame house on Front street, by Mr. W. F. Curtis, a few days ago, suggested some inquiries in regard to the age of that and several other old buildings about town. Below will be found the results of our investigations.

The building spoken of above was put up, according to the best information we could obtain, by Obed Lincoln, in the year 1800. Mr. L. occupied it as a dwelling house, and also as a butcher's shop. He sold it to John S. Sharpe, who inhabited one part of it and rented the other to a Mr. Hannaway. In 1808 or 10, Mr. Sharpe disposed of it to Jason R. Curtis, who lived in it until his death in 1832, and since that time it has been occupied by his family until within a few years past. Mr. C. had a hatter's shop in a part of the house, where he carried on the business for many years. James Dunn worked in the shop from his first coming to Marietta in 1812 until 1825, when he built a brick shop on the ground where Holden's Block now stands.

The old dwelling house on Front street, just above John M. Woodbridge's store, was built by Wing Devol in 1802. When Joseph Holden came to Marietta in the spring of 1803, it was still unfinished, and he made the sash for the windows.

Another house contemporary with these, is the one standing on the corner of Green street and the alley, opposite Mr. Booth's house. This was built by Joel Bowen, who raised it so high from the ground that he could drive under it with an ox team. An addition was afterwards made to it by Alexander Hill, who kept a public house there for several years.

A building still more ancient is the one now occupied by Chas. B. Hall, next to the Congregational church. The precise year of its erection we have not been able to learn, but it was as early as the year 1795. It was built by Commodore Whipple.

There is one house, however, still standing which had an existence as far back as the first settlement of the Northwest Territory. The one inhabited by Judge Arius Nye was built in 1789, by Gen. Rufus Putnam. It was constructed of poplar logs, four inches thick, first hewed and then whip-sawed, and was regarded as bullet-proof. It formed part of the old Stockade Fort.

The first brick building erected in Marietta and indeed in Ohio, was the one now occupied by Mrs. Buell, on the corner of Green and Second streets. This was built in 1795, by Gen. Joseph Buell.

The first store opened in the Northwest Territory, was kept by Dudley Woodbridge, grandfather of Geo. M. Woodbridge, Esq. The building stood on the extreme point, on the vacant lot below the house ocupied by John Marshall. All trace of it has long ago disappeared.

The second store opened was in a building erected for the purpose by Charles Green, in 1793, on Ohio Street. It was a frame building, and is now standing next to the store of W. B. Thomas & Co., on the west side, and occupied as a hotel.

The "Oldest Inhabitants"

The Marietta Register, November 10, 1870:

Some months ago, the Register asked for the facts in regard to people in Washington county who had reached the age of ninety and upwards. Several responses were received from friends, to whom the most cordial thanks are now returned; but matters have so pressed that use has not heretofore been made of the items. We begin, at this time, to work up our materials respecting those in the county advanced in life to three score and ten and upwards. Some of the items were gathered in June, now five months ago, and it is not impossible that the name of a chance one may be printed, since dead, and whose death has not been reported to the Register. It may be remarked that as persons in middle life have a disposition to count the number of their years as less than they really are, so the tendency is to exaggerate, when they arrive at the old age which is "honorable."

Centenarians.

Four persons in Washington county claim to be a century old or more.

Robert Collins, who lives with Wm. Athey, in Fearing, claims to be one hundred and eight, born in England, in 1762. He is quite feeble, but still walks around and reads with the naked eye the Bible, the Marietta Register, and the Cincinnati Gazette. Of course, he is a Republican, and he never fails to vote. He has been in the county over thirty years, and we cannot learn that he has any relatives living.

Mrs. Catharine Beagle, of Independence, one hundred and three, born in Pennsylvania, in 1767. Helpless.

Mrs. Hannah Miller, of Newport, one hundred and two, born in Virginia, in 1768. She has been the mother of fourteen children. She was "as lively as a cricket," at our last account.

Charles Herriman, of Grandview, one hundred, born in Virginia, in 1770. His wife is still living, a native of Virginia, in her ninety-first year.

Ninety and Upwards.

Rhoda Bayless. 90. Independence. N.Y.

Nancy Beebe. 90. Waterford. Conn.
David Shields. 90. Watertown. Penn.
Sarah Green. 90. Watertown. Penn.
Samuel Brown. 90. Palmer. Mass.

Remarks. Wm. Stacy came to Marietta, Nov. 22, 1789, consequently he has been with us eighty-one years. Philip Biddison, who lives near Vincent, has been in this county about forty years, and a resident of Ohio, since 1808. Wm. White, of Belpre, is a native of Northampton Co., Pa., was a Lieutenant in the war of 1812. John Gregory, of Liberty, went from Pennsylvania to Virginia, when a child, and came to Ohio, in 1839; was a Democrat till 1860, since then a Republican. Elias Wolcott, of Watertown, is a native of Berkshire Co., Mass., came to this county in October, 1798, and settled on the farm where he now resides, seventy-two years ago last month.

Samuel Brown, of Palmer, is so near ninety, that we have crowded him into that list. He was born in Rowe, Hampshire Co., Mass., May 13, 1781, consequently is only six months and three days less than ninety. He was among the first settlers of Athens county, when a boy. About sixty years ago, he settled in this county, and built what was known as "Brown's Mills," on Wolf Creek, in the present township of Palmer. The Post Office of the same name -- Brown's Mills -- was named from him, although long since moved some distance from its original location. The old gentleman lives with his daughter, Mrs. Amy Pierrot, and frequently walks a mile or more down to his old mill, viewing the scene of his early labors with satisfaction.

The Marietta Register, November 17, 1870:

Last week, the Register gave some account of the centenarians in Washington county, including all persons ninety years of age and upwards -- twenty-nine in all, in a population of 40,000.

We cannot refrain from paying tribute to those who are enjoying "good old age," a condition we expect to reach, by the will of Providence. The mind need never grow old, if we cultivate it as we ought. The heart and the affections may be kept young, and the tenderest sympathies of human nature be alive and flourishing though the head be frosted and the bodily powers be decaying. There is a lady in Marietta, of fourscore, who is yet as fresh as "sweet sixteen," and those who are now in their "teens," are her chosen company.

The following begins a list of those in the county who have reached three score and ten and upwards, except those before given as ninety and over. It may be remarked that a few of those named may be a month or two short of seventy, and in other cases the age may vary from the fact not more than a few months:

The Marietta Register, May 13, 1884
 

Joseph E. Hall was born in Coldchester, Conn., April 26th, 1793, having now just entered his 92d year. He moved to Marietta in 1817, the town at that time boasting of about 1,000 inhabitants. Mr. Hall is well preserved for one of his years, has a clear memory and bids fair to become a centenarian. He has three children living, Chas. B., so long with the Phoenix Mill, John, senior partner in Hall & Bailey's planing mill, and George a workman in the same.

Hartness Wells

The Marietta Register, May 13, 1884

Hartness Wells is, we believe, the oldest person in Marietta, having been born in New York on St. Valentines day in 1791, being now in the 94th year of his age. In early childhood he moved to Monmouth County, New Jersey, and from there removed to Marietta in 1840. He has five children living. William, a dealer in horses at Freehold, N. J., John C., also horse dealer in New York, Thomas K. Wells for 11 years past proprietor of the National Hotel of this place, Jane, wife of Douglas Daniels, horse dealer in Marietta, and Susan M., wife of James. P. Allaire, of Kansas City. Mr. Wells has been in good health until recently, but is now failing quite fast.
