HISTORIES before 1923

"Valley of the upper Maumee River : with historical account of Allen County and the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana : the story of its progress from savagery to civilization." by Robert S. Robertson; pub. Madison, Wis.: Brant & Fuller, 1889, 1030 pgs. (LH6270, HeritageQuest images 4/2007; FHL book 977.274 H2v v.1-2 and film 1,000,529 items 3-4)
      Vol.1, pg.438-439: Allen county ... the Smalls of Marion township. They are among the descendants of five brothers, Joseph, Joshua, Purington, John Sr., and Taylor, who were passengers on the Mayflower, ... Joseph Small, jr., the ancestor of the Smalls of Allen County, was the first child born in Old Borden, in 1778. He ... and his wife were natives of Maine, and remained there until 1817, when they determined to emigrate to a point four miles above Cincinnati. With seven children - Louis, Maria, Mary, Delilah, Catharine, Emeline and Joseph, ... after about four years they moved to Cleveland and Joseph Small purchased a farm ... in 1838, with his family, he cut his way through to Allen county, and settled on section 23. Mr. Small, with the help of his sons, helped to cut the first roads in the township. The wife of this pioneer was Margaret Duncan, whose father was a Scotchman. He was pressed into the British service soon after emigrating to this country, but deserted and went to the mountains of Maine, where he was married and lived and died. Mr. and Mrs. Small raised a family of thirteen children, all but two of whom lived to maturity. Louis, the oldest of the family, died about 1840, leaving a large family, some of whom are living in Michigan and some in Iowa. Maria was married to Lorenzo Holly, and they died in Michigan. Mary Small was married to Riley Hance. ... Fidelia first married .... Catharine Small .... Joseph Small .... Robert Small, one of the oldest settlers of Marion township, was born June 25, 1819, near Cincinnati. ... (MAD: 1994 query by Diane Williams: Margaret Duncan b.1786 Bowdoin, [Lincoln then Sagadahoc Co.], Maine, m. Joseph SMALL.)
