All life and achievement is evolution; present wisdom comes from past experience, and present commercial prosperity has come only from past exertion and suffering. 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 country was at once a task and a privilege. It required great courage, sacrifice and privation. Compare the present conditions of the residents of Whitley county, Indiana, with what they were one hundred years ago. From a trackless wilderness it has come to be a center of prosperity and civiliza tion, with millions of wealth, with systems of intersecting railways, grand educa tional institutions, marvelous industries and immense agricultural productions. Can any thinking person be insensible to the fascination of the study which dis closes the incentives. Hopes' aspirations and efforts of the early pioneers who so strongly laid the foundation 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, political and industrial progress of the community 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 preservation. And which unite the present to the past. Is the motive for the present publication.
