OLD MARIETTA PAPERS
The Marietta Register frequently included a column entitled, “Old Marietta Papers,” which featured news and announcements extracted from some of the area’s earliest newspapers. Microfilm Reel # 39487, covering years 1862-1867, provided the following information about the area’s earliest residents from those columns 1808-1843. Although every effort has been made to note each personal item in a particular issue, some may have been missed. Please consult the microfilm reel if you feel an error has occurred.

Hon. John Brough - We make some notes on the life of Mr. Brough on the occasion of his visit this week to the city of his nativity. Mr. Brough was born in 1811, in Marietta, in the old Court House and Jail, the dwelling house part of which was then occupied by his father, John Brough, Esq., who was at the time sheriff of the county. The father was a native of England and died in 1823 on the farm now known as the “Cleona Farm,” just above the mouth of Duck Creek. After the death of his father in 1823, young Brough went to learn the printing business with the late Royal Prentiss in the office of “The American Friend” [an early Washington County newspaper]. In January, 1831, he began the publication of “The Western Republican,” over the Post Office, at the corner of Front and Putnam streets. It was a Jackson paper and edited with ability. In April 1833, he removed the paper to Parkersburg and sold it the next fall, when he removed to Lancaster, this State, and published and edited the “Lancaster Eagle,” the Democratic paper of Fairfield county, today a violent copperhead paper. He was elected Auditor of State by the Legislature the next winter. He held that office six years, until 1845. In 1841, he purchased the Phoenix, of Moses Dawson, and started the Cincinnati Inquirer, in company with his brother, the late Judge Charles H. Brough, the latter being the resident partner. In 1845, Mr. Brough removed to Cincinnati where he remained three years in law practice, editing the Enquirer part of the time. In 1848, he removed to Madison, Ind., on becoming President of the Madison and Indianapolis Railroad. He has been in railroad life ever since, now being in charge of the Bellefontaine and Indianapolis road - his charge, we believe, extending from Indianapolis to Crestline. His family resides at Cleveland. Mr. Brough is a man of distinguished ability. His College was the Printing Office. He was always a Democrat - since the War, an unconditional Union man.

Died: Feb. 15, 1814, Lieut. Jos. M. Wilcox, of the regular U.S. Army, was killed by Indians, on the Alabama River, in his 24th year. He was a son of Gen. Jos. Wilcox, of Marietta, and entered West Point Military Academy in 1807. He was sent down the Alabama River on a perilous expedition, in command of three picked men, in a canoe. After being out two days, they landed to escape 10 Indians in a canoe, but the Indians landed. They beat off the Indians, killing two of them. They wandered about in the woods, to escape, went through swamps, and finally returned to the river, and began building a raft, one of their men having deserted them. Just as their raft was done, the three men were attacked by eight Indians. They made a desperate resistance and after Lieut. Wilcox was shot through the body, and mortally wounded, he rushed on an Indian, knocked him down with his rifle and threw him into the river. Corporal Simpson was wounded in the knee. The other man crept into a cane brake. The Indians split the skulls of Lieut. Wilcox and the Corporal, having first scalped them, and just then a detachment came in sight, but too late to save the lives of the gallant Lieutenant and Corporal. They rescued the man in the cane brake.

Events of 1825:
Marietta, in January, 1825, lost two of its “rising young men.” One - Henry P. Willcox - left suddenly and somewhat mysteriously for “parts unknown”; the other - Benjamin P. Putnam - was cut off by that “fell destroyer,” consumption. The exact date of the disappearance of Mr. Willcox we do not know, but it was about New Year’s. He was the son of Gen. Joseph Willcox, who died just eight years before [see Deaths in 1816 from issue of 20 Nov 1863] and who lived in the house since known as that of the Ward family. He built the house in which Col. Mills has lived for the last quarter of a century; also the store building corner of Front and Putnam sts., now occupied by J.L. Stephens. The Friend [newspaper] makes no mention of his departure, but he was Postmaster, and on the 7th of January the name of David Morris, Postmaster pro tem is published. Jan. 24th, notice was published by Dr. S.P. Hildreth and A.V.D. Joline that they had been appointed by Mr. Willcox as his agents to settle his business. Why he left, we have heard attributed to some purloining of money from letters in connection with the Post Office, the precise nature of which was, we believe, never fully developed to the public. He went to Canada, but subsequently came into Cattarangus Co., N.Y., where he practiced medicine and it is said that he went to Albany where he had some prominence, being at one time Secretary to the Governor. He started out in Marietta with dashing prospects, married a daughter of Rev. Joseph Willard, lived in style, but his career ended here as above related. He once came here, but kept out of public view. David Morris was appointed to succeed him as Postmaster.
Benjamin P. Putnam was the oldest brother of our fellow citizens Douglas and David Putnam. He died on Sunday evening, Jan. 2, 1825 in his 25th year - young, yet he had accomplished “the work of a lifetime.” No man at his age has ever done so much in Marietta. He was twice married, first to a sister of the late J.W. Dana, of Waterford, afterwards to a sister of the late Nahum Ward. We copy from The Friend [newspaper] as follows: “Benjamin P. Putnam was endowed with a strong and active mind, which was early put in train for much usefulness and having received an education at the age of 17, fitting for active life, he went into the Land Office of the late worthy patriot Gen. Rufus Putnam where he continued, strictly and satisfactorily engaged, for two years at the close of which a very extensive Land Agency was placed in his hands and at a subsequent period the office of Cashier of the Bank of Marietta was given him. Business was rapidly multiplying upon his hands, for he gave satisfaction to all who had negotiations with him - when suddenly in the bloom of life, he was called by his God, in whom he had full faith and confidence, to leave this world of sorrows and be at rest. His friends and society at large sincerely mourn the loss of so worthy, generous, humane, hospitable, and philanthropic a character as that which he sustained. He has left a void in our society of no ordinary magnitude.
Died: Jan. 3, 1825, Joel Sherman, son of Josiah Sherman, of Waterford, died at the age of 21 - shot four days before at a Wolf Hunt in Windsor township, Morgan Co., by careless persons who fired at a deer.
May 23, 1825, Gen. Lafayette passed up the Ohio on the steamer Herald, landed in Marietta amid the firing of cannon, and spent about an hour at the house of Nahum Ward, with whom he had become acquainted at Paris, the people generally calling upon him at Ward’s.
Oct 14, 1825, John Bryan was killed near the mouth of Duck Creek by the fall of a stick of timber upon him, while engaged in turning over a newly built flat boat.
