An Old Marietta Man

The Marietta Register, Semi-Weekly, June 5, 1888

Probably the most aged veteran of the War of 1812 now living, as well as one of the very first and oldest steamboat owners in the Ohio Valley, is Mr. Jacob Rice, who resides at Silver Run, about two miles below Middleport, on the Ohio river, he having been ninety-eight years old on the 2d day of last January, and is yet remarkably well preserved.

Mr. Rice was born at Murraysville, near Pittsburgh, in 1790, and therefore has survived every Presidential Administration except Cleveland's since the Constitution of the United States was adopted.

He served a short time in the War of 1812, afterwards enlisting again and staying to the end, for which he now receives a pension.

He afterwards came to Marietta, in which place he remained about twelve years, and where he became one of the most prominent business men of the town.  While here he met Lafayette when he landed and shook hands with him.  Here he engaged in boat building, one among the boats built being the Muskingum, a side wheel packet with four boilers, the machinery of which was put up at Steubenville.  The engine alone cost $4,500, and the boat about $20,000.  She was in the Cincinnati and Pittsburgh trade.  He also built a number of keelboats at the same place.

From Marietta he went to Cincinnati, staying there a short time.  Going from there he went to his present home, where he has been for the balance of his life.

The First Newspaper in Marietta

The Marietta Register, September 12, 1862

Julius Deming of Watertown, has furnished us an older copy of a Marietta paper than any we have before seen.  It is The Ohio Gazette and Virginia Herald of date Monday, Oct. 24, 1803 - six months older than the half sheet of the same paper owned by Francis Collins, of Grandview, noticed by us some weeks ago.

It was at this time (Oct. 24, 1803), published by Samuel Fairlamb; and according to the number of this copy, the first was published Nov. 30, 1801.  The size of the sheet is about three-eights that of the Register.

The first page is taken up exclusively with advertisements, set mostly in very large type, so that there are only seven in all, the "List of letters remaining in the Post office at Marietta, October 1, 1803," occupying a column and a half of the four columns on the page.  Griffin Greene was then the Postmaster.  Post offices were not very frequent at that day in these parts, for there are letters advertised here for persons, (we give the spelling as we find it,) at Belleprie, Little Kenhawa, Kanhaway, Galliopolis, Guiandot, and Great Sandy. 

John Cline and Enos Atwater give notice that they intend to apply at the next term of Court "for a right of establishing a ferry from the point at Fort Harmar across the Ohio river to Mr. Porter's, in Wood county, Virginia."  Notice is given that "the inhabitants of the townships of Newtown and Tuskarawa, in the county of Washington," intend to petition the General Assembly for a new county, with "a permanent seat of justice at or near the mouth of Licking creek on the Muskingum."  Joseph Buell gives notice that a horse and a colt "broke into the enclosure of the subscriber," and requests the owner to prove property and take them away.  N. Gates, Secretary, gives notice of an adjourned meeting of mechanics, to consider "the propriety of forming a Mechanical Society" in Washington county.  And Edward W. Tupper says he "has just received from Philadelphia, and offers for sale at his store in Marietta, a large and general assortment of Dry Goods, Hardware, Saddlery, &c."

The second page is wholly filled with foreign news, over two months old.

The third page is half filled with the "Laws of Ohio," four short, miscellaneous articles, and four advertisements, one from Clarksburg, Va.  John Green advertises that he had "opened a Public House in the Town of Newport, on the great road from Marietta to Wheeling, fifteen miles from Marietta."  James Riggs, of Grandview, says "an iron grey mare came to my plantation, and broke into my enclosure," and requests the owner to prove property, &c.  And Richard Green offers for sale "a very valuable farm in the town of Marietta, about half a mile from the city, containing 39 acres."  Also on the third page election returns are given for the counties of Washington and Gallia, as follows:

Senators:

Republican:  Elijah Backus, 489; Joseph Buell, 488.
Federal:  Benjamin Ives Gilman, 304; Paul Fearing, 208.

Representatives:

Charles Mills, 495; Jesse Fulton, 494; William Jackson, 489; Simeon Deming, 298; Nathaniel Cushing, 297; Brewster Heigley, 288.

The Federal ticket it appears was beaten by a large majority in proportion to the vote.

The fourth page contains over a column more of foreign news and some miscellaneous matter - which ends the paper.

Valuable Estate

Western Spectator, November 13, 1810

To be sold or exchanged for wild land (Ohio Company, shares excepted.)

That valuable estate owned, and lately occupied by the subscriber.  Said estate consists of three and one third city lots, containing three hundred feet of land fronting on the Muskingum river and one hundred and eighty feet rear - with a very handsome mansion house, barn, and out houses thereon, together with a good well of water, and a beautiful garden which contains a great variety of choice fruit, of almost every description that the western country affords.  Said estate is pleasantly situated in the centre of the flourishing town of Marietta, adjoining the new Meetinghouse and within a few rods of the Courthouse.  Also will be sold, thirteen and an half city lots, lying within half a mile of the above mentioned premises.  Said estate will be sold on the most reasonable terms for cash, or a liberal credit will be given for approved notes, or it will be exchanged for good wild lands.  Also is offered for sale pew no. __ in the new Meetinghouse.

For terms apply to Caleb Emerson, Esqr. in Marietta.
