Excerpt from Pioneer Biography, Vol. 2: Sketches of the Lives of Some of the Early Settlers of Butler County, Ohio In issuing the concluding volume of these Biographical Sketches, we have little to add to what we prefaced to the first volume. A number of the sketches are of comparatively little importance, historically, containing as they do not much else than private family details; and, while an apology may be due for admitting them into a Historical Series, yet, they have a certain value as records of some of the oldest pioneer families, which may sufficiently justify their publication. We are not without hope, too, that some Genealogical Society in this Ohio Valley may yet be grateful to us for preserving what we have been tempted to reject. So, trusting in this hope, and not on present appreciation, we give all the sketches which Mr. McBride selected for publication, even though some of them are only of local and personal interest. In one case only - the sketch of Captain John Cleves Symmes - have we deemed it proper to omit any considerable portion of Mr. McBride's manuscript. He was a firm believer in the "Theory of Concentric Spheres," and most of his sketch was taken up with an argument in its defense.
