PREFACE



All life and achievement is evolution; present wisdom conies from past
experience, and present commercial prosperity has come only from past exer-
tion and sufifering. The deeds and motives of the men that have gone before
have been instrumental in shaping the destinies of later communities and
states. The development of a new countr}- was at once a task and a privi-
lege. It required great courage, sacrifice and privation. C^impare the ])res-
ent conditions of the people of DeKalb County. Indiana, with what the\-
were one hundred years ago. From a trackless wilderness and virgin land,
it has come to be a center of prosperity and civilization, with millions of
wealth, systems of railways, grand educational institutions, splendid indus-
tries and immense agricultural and mineral productions. Can any think-
ing person be insensible to the fascination of the study which discloses the
aspirations and efforts of the early pioneers who so strongly laid the founda-
tion upon which has been reared the magnificent prosperity of later days? To
perpetuate the story of these people and to trace and record the social, polit-
ical and industrial progress of the conmiunity from its first inception is the
function of the local historian. A sincere purpose to preserve facts and per-
sonal memoirs that are deserving of perpetuation, and which unite the pres-
ent to the past, is the motive for the present publication. A specially valuable
and interesting department is that one devoted to the sketches of representa-
tive citizens of these counties whose records deserve preservation because of
their worth, effort and accomplishment. The publishers desire to extend
their thanks to the gentlemen who have so faithfully labored to this end.
Thanks are also due to the citizens of DeKalb county for the uniform kind-
ness with which they have regarded this undertaking, and for their mau}-
services rendered in the gaining of necessary information.

In placing the "History of DeKalb County, Indiana," before the citizens,
the publishers can conscientiously claim that they have carried out the plan
as outlined in the prospectus. Every biographical sketch in the work has
been submitted to the party interested, for correction, and therefore any error
of fact, if there be any, is solely due to the person for whom the sketch was
prepared. Confident that our effort to jilease will fulh' meet the a])probation
of the public, we are,

Respectfully,

THE PUBLISHERS.
