In presenting the history of the Counties of Mercer and Hender-
son to the public, the editors and publishers have had in view the
preservation of ctrtain valuable historical facts and a vast fund of
information which without concentrated effort could never have
been obtained, but, with the passing away of the old pioneers, the
failure of memory, and the loss of public records and private
diaries, would soon have been lost. This locality being compara-
tively new, we flatter ourselves that, with the zeal and industry
displayed by our general and local historians, we have succeeded in
- rescuing from the fading years almost every scrap of history worthy of
'^ preservation. Doubtless the work is, in some respects, imperfect; we
c^ do not present it as a model literary effort, but in that which goes to
oS* make up a valuable book of reference for the present reader and future
^'historian, we assure our patrons that neither money nor time has been
2 spared in the accomplishment of the work. Perhaps some errors will
5 be found. With treacherous memories, personal, political and sectarian
;i prejudices and preferences to contend against, it would be almost a
y^ miracle if no mistakes were made. We hope that even these defects,
^ which may be found to exist, may be made available in so far as they
_- may provoke discussion and call attention to corrections and additions
;3~^ necessary to perfect history.

5, In this work we have been greatly aided by the officers and- mem-

bers of the Mercer County Historical Society, and to Messrs. Tyler
^' McWhorter, I. N. Bassett, C. S. Eichey, Graham Lee, and John
Geiger, we are indebted not only for valuable advice, but for articles
> on various topics that cannot but prove interesting and acceptable to
..^t-ejur patrons. Messrs. J. Simpson, Dr. A. W. Hyde, E. Mathews,



I'ltKFACK.



N. D. Hillis, M. S. (ireeiK Mrs. Pliebe Button, and many others
who have contributed to tlic work in Henderson County, have
placed the patrons of tlie work under lasting obligations for \-alu-
able matter rescued from oblivion, where it was surely tending.

The biographical department contains the names and ])rivate
sketches of nearly every person of im])ortance in the counties. A few
persons, whose sketches we would be pleased to have presented, for
various reasons refused or delayed furnishing us with the desired
information, and in this matter only we feel that our work is incom-
plete. However, in most of such cases we have obtained, in i*egard
to the most important ])ersons, some items, and have woven them
into the county or township sketches, so that, as we believe, we cannot
})e accused of negligence, partiality or jjrejudice.
