The Northwest Board of Education recently announced plans to purchase land for the new senior high school in the vicinity of Pippin and Stout Roads. This site is probably one of the few areas remaining in the ownership of an original pioneer family. Charles Stout had purchased his first 100 acres of land from Jonathan Dayton as early as 1805. The 1847 map of Hamilton County shows the site of his original house to be just about where the new high school building will stand. (This was written in October of 1970).

Harmer was defeated in Oct 1790 and Dunlap's Station Siege (& Big Bottom) were in Jan 1791. St. Clair failed that Nov, and DsS2 was in Jan or Jun of 1792. The Fort Jefferson battle just after that could have been led by Simon Girty, the similarity is noticeable. Then Fallen Timbers in 1794 and Grenville Treaty in 1795 ended the NWIW.

1790, Oct - Harmers Defeat by the Miami's led by Little Turtle at Kekionga, near present Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

1791, Jan 10-11 - Dunlap's Station

1791, Nov - St. Clair's Defeat (Wabash) by Little Turtle and Blue Jacket (Miami & Shawnee & Delaware) at the later site of Fort Recovery in Ohio, near Indiana border.
1792, Jan or Apr - 2nd Dunlap's Station...

Tipton History - MERGED:

Pg 16
]ohn F. and Sarah  Walmsley Newkirk migrated from Pennsylvania to Tipton County in 1848, settling on property that is now County Road 100 West, just north of 300 South. John was born in 1799 in Pennsylvania, and Sarah was horn in 1804 in Ohio. The Newkirks died in Tipton County and are buried in Sumner Cemetery. They had 10 children.

The Small family members are,
from left to right, Eliza and ]essie Small and Archibald and Mary Ann Coats Small. Archibald settled in Jefferson Township, near the county line, in 1837. He later donated the land that became Small Cemetery. His first Wife died in 1839 and was the first...

pg 22
C.L. O'Banion, son of Tipton Tribune publisher Ira M. O'Banion, demonstrates his fine sharpshooting form. The photograph is dated 1898, the same year Ira entered partnership with Arch W. Ramsay Jr. at the Tribune. At the close of World War I, C.L. and Floyd N. Ramsay jointly purchased the business from their fathers. The two remained partners in the business until Floyd's death in 1943.
(John O'Banion.)

Pg 25
In the late 1840s, Tipton Countians lived an isolated life, but the railroads—and change—were loming. Tipton's first train reportedly ran to Indianapolis on August 4, 1853, over wooden rails that started near the East Madison Street bridge over Cicero Creek. Although the passengers paid their fares, they were expected to climb off the train whenever the cars derailed and set them back on the track.
(Ken Ziegler.)

pg 43
Under construction is Waffler and Bates restaurant, owned by Fred Waffler and Al Bates, at 31 East Jefferson Street, around 1900. The workmen pose on the scaffolding. Among them is Tipton's revered Civil War veteran, Capt. Thomas Paul, the bearded man standing on the lower plank on the left. On the left in the work apron is J.H. Van, pioneer shoe and harness man of Tipton. The contractor, James W. Russell, was one of Tipton County's earliest residents, his family having moved to the county in 1854, when he was still an infant. Often referred to as a "pioneer artisan," he started his carpentry and contracting business in Goldsmith in 1881. Russell was a Spanish-American War veteran, serving with Company I, 160th Indiana Volunteer Regiment.
He died in July 1936 at the age of 82, outlived by the buildings he constructed. The Waffler and Bates Building was flanked by U R Next Barbershop to its west and J.C. Lindsay Drug Store on its east.

Qzy “Ute” Quakenbush of Sharpsville and his daughter Maxine Nash display the quilt that Was handcrafted for him by his mother-in-law, Lula Ramseyer. The quilt is made of the ribbons won at the Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio state fairs and other shows for his Oxford sheep. The photograph was taken in 1944, a short time before his death.

Above, Ruth lllges stops along Main Street near the Ritz Theater, around 1945. For many years, Tipton supported two movie theaters, the Ritz and the Diana. The Ritz took over the former Martz Opera House that opened in 1904 and for decades was a venue for many cultural activities, including musical theater, vaudeville shows, and speakers. Even Francis X. Bushman, the most famous silent-movie actor for his time, once appeared on the Martz’s stage. Below, the cast of an early-1900s production at the Martz takes a bow. Established by Nicholas Martz, the theater was gutted by fire April 8, 1929. Rebuilt in 1930, it was renamed the Ritz and remained a popular movie house until it closed in 1956. The building burned again on December 23, 1998. That time, it was a total loss.

Max lllges skates figure eights at the ice rink in the Tipton Park, about 1940. The rink was located south of Cicero Creek and West of the footbridge. The then new swimming pool building is in the background. Absent from the background is the Boy Scout cabin, which was not built until 1941.
(Ruth lllges.)

pg 79
About 1955, members of Brownie Troop 350 pose for a group shot in the basement of Tipton’s First Presbyterian Church, where they met each month for several years. The girls started meeting as ]efferson Elementary School second graders and stayed together as Girl Scouts and ultimately Senior Scouts. Through the years, their leaders included Bobbi Ramsay, Louise Bowers, Helen Leininger, and ]une Thornton. The Brownies are, from left to right,
(first row) Debbie Campbell, ]ane Ann Cooper, Debby Mclntosh, Karyn Harkness, Marcia Green, and ]anet Ramsay;
(second row) Nadine Haley, ]anis Thornton, Sandy Farmer, ]ennifer Wiggins, Nancy Stout, Wendy ?, Mary Martha Purvis, and Linda Bowers. Ten members of the original troop received their curved bars in a ceremony on May 23, 1962. The curved bar is the highest rank in the intermediate program, equivalent to the Eagle rank in Boy Scouts. At that time, only 11 other Girl Scouts in Tipton County had earned the distinction.

Pg 87
Students stand outside ]efferson School in Kempton, about 1910, alongside the horse-drawn school hack. The school was Kempton’s first brick school and served both elementary and high school students. It was built in 1888 at the intersection of Main and College Streets. WR. Dunham was principal for many years.

Describing a noble but disappointing football season, the 1909 Tipton High School yearbook nonetheless has only praise for its 1908 team, consisting of Monroe Hughes, Paul Van Buskirk, Herschel Francis, Verne Wagstaff, Herman D’Hara, Roderick Renner, Ray Glenn, Merle Brown, Dennis Thompson, Dudley Wagstaff, L.H. Brookbank, Eugene Teter, Ray Kirtley, and Frank Richey.

Members of the American ]unior Red Cross wave flags as they promenade south on Main Street during the 1939 Corn Festival parade. At the time of this photograph, more than 1,200 area students belonged to Tipton County’s ]unior Red Cross, a popular service program that taught the value of service, safety, good health, and world understanding. lts motto was “We serve.”
(Ruth lllges.)

pg 106
The Skidoo Band performed at dances, parties, and social events in the early 1900s. Also shown in this photograph, taken on the southeast side of the courthouse, are members of the Tipton Club, a young men’s organization. A 1936 Tribune article identifies some of the men pictured as,
in no particular order, Frank Vawter, William Nelson, Lawrence and  Carl Shiel, Fred Schick, G.]. Dglebay, Garnet Dodds, and LD. Behymer.
(Alice Ricketts.)

pg 112
Shown left, Capt. Thomas Paul was born in 1824 in Henry County. He claimed both his grandfathers fought in the Revolutionary War under Gen. George Washington. Paul moved to Tipton County in 1855 and worked at the sawmill. When the Civil War broke out, he enlisted with the 11th Indiana Volunteer Regiment and fought some of the war’s bloodiest battles, while steadily moving up through the ranks. At the time of his death on ]uly ZZ, 1918, he was one of Tipton County’s oldest and most revered residents. His obituary, headlined
“Captain Thomas Paul Goes lnto Eternal Bivouac,”
paid tribute to his military accomplishments, stating,
“Bravely he marched to that field where he made the last stand, and there he was finally mustered out, but all who know him deeply regret this day when he was handed his final discharge.”
He was 94.
Shown below, ]onathan Darke volunteered with the 26th Indiana Regiment, Company C, in 1861. Darke was a resident of Sharpsville, where he was the town’s blacksmith. He died ]une 8, 1911, at the age of 83.

Obama’s sixth cousin, Dr. Grover Cleveland Dunham, above left, took over the house after
his father, Riley, died. The photograph below, dated June 1935,  shows Dr Dunham outside his Kempton office. He served patients in Tipton and Clinton Counties for some 50 years and was Tipton County’s health officer around 1910. Following his death in 1956 at the age of 72, his wife, Hazel, shown above with their daughter, Melba, continued to live in the house until her death in 1969. Hazel was the last of the Dunhams to occupy the Kempton home.

Claybaugh, Pg 601-2
EMANUEL BURGET, present county auditor and thriving farmer of John-
son township, Clinton county, Ind. , was born in Butler county, Ohio, February 9. 1839. His great-grandfather Burget came from England and was killed by the Indians while he was swimming the Big Miami river in an attempt to reach his block-house.
Emanuel Burget, grandfather of our subject, and an early stttler of Butler county, Ohio, was a soldier of the Revolution and married Catherine Garner. His son, William Burget, was born in Butler county, Ohio, married Lydia Keever, daughter of John Keever, and became the father of the following children: Margaret C, Emanuel, Elizabeth J., William M., Rachel E., John H. and Samuel. William was a gallant soldier in company H, Eighty-sixth IVI. Elizabeth J. was the first white child born in Johnson township.
The parents were Baptists in their religious faith, and the father, at first a democrat, became a republican on account of the war, and was elected justice of the peace eighteen consecutive years. He lost his wife in 1833, and he followed her to the grave in 1881.

Emanuel Burget was brought to Clinton county, Ind., in 1839, before he was a year old.
He was educated in the old log school-house, but secured a fair education, and now owns eighty acres of good land. He enlisted, March 4, 1865, in company C, Fifty-eighth IVI, and was assigned to the Fourteenth army corps, army of the Cumberland. He passed through the campaigns of North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and Kentucky; was a member of the pontoon detail, and was constantly skirmishing for many weeks. He was honorably discharged July 25, 1865, and now receives a pension of six dollars per month. In politics he is a republican, has been a justice of the peace, and was once nominated for county auditor. He Ist married Naomi Stroup, daughter of Jacob and...

Pg 602

Naomi (Debington) Stroup, and a sister of Jacob Stroup, whose biography appears on another page. The children born to this union were named William J., Cinderella, who died in 1882, and Nora. Mr. Burget is an industrious and enterprising citizen and farmer, and he and family are highly respected in the community in which they live. He was again nominated for county auditor June 7, 1894, and elected in November by a majority of 570 by the republican party, and he took possession of the office November 15, 1894.

WILLIAM M. BURGET, an ex-soldier and a well-known farmer, is a resident of Johnson township, Clinton county, Ind. , where he was born June 28, 1844. He is son of William and Lydia (Keever) Burget, and grandson of Emanuel Burget. On August 13, 1862, he enlisted in company H, Eighty-sixth Indiana volunteer infantry, and was assigned to the army of the Cumberland. He fought through the campaigns of Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama, and took an active part in the battles of Stone River, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge and Knoxville. At the latter place he was taken sick and was in hospital a short time, and then was furloughed home to recover; having recuperated, he rejoined his regiment immediately after the fall of Atlanta, and later took part in the battles of Columbia, Franklin and Nashville; was honorably discharged June 6, 1865, and is now drawing a pension of $10 per month. In politics he is a stanch republican, but is not ambitious for office. His farm contains forty-three acres and is well taken care of.

Mr. Burget has been thrice married. His first wife was Miss Permelia Mott, daughter of Sayres Mott, and to this marriage were born May, born May 15, 1867, died September 20, 1868; Eugene O., born January 5, 1869; Lula, born February 13, 1872, and Sarah, born July 10, 1874, died same day. Mrs. Burget was a member of the Church of God and was a most estimable lady. The second marriage of Mr. Burget was to Miss Sarah Longfellow, daughter of John Longfellow, and to this union was born Leon V., born June 10, 1880, died August 14, 1881. The mother was a member of the Christian church. The third marriage of Mr. Burget was to Mrs. Hester J. McCreary, daughter of John M. and Hester (Mott) Dunn, and this union has been blessed with the birth of four children - John P. , born October 16, 1884; Earnest D., born January 2, 1 886; Minnie T., born April 3, 1887, and George E., born May 18, 1888. Eugene 0. Burget has been engaged in teaching in Johnson township for seven years. He graduated from the State Normal college, which he attended two years, and is the present deputy auditor of Clinton county.

Our Heritage... Dunlap, John. by Carol Eddleman

June 13, 2011 01:59PM
John Dunlap, who gave the name Colerain to the township, seems also to have emigrated to Lawrence Co., Illinois where he surveyed and platted the county seat, Lawrenceville in 1821. He was one of the first three county commissioners. It is believed that he died sometime in 1822 or 1823. He had a son, Samuel, who was one of the first Senators in the Illinois legislature. In 1830 John Dunlap's widow, Sarah Goode Dunlap, married Benjamin McCleave. There were probably more children of John and Sarah (Goode) Dunlap, for Benjamin McCleave, Jr. married Ester Dunlap in 1832. Other Dunlaps appear in these early Illinois marriage records. John must have had a son James born in Illinois, James Dunlap served as guardian for Ester (Dunlap) McCleave's minor children after her death in 1854.
There may still be descendants of John Dunlap living in Illinois today. There may be a will or probate file for John Dunlap in the Lawrenceville, Ill. courthouse. Other histories of Ill. may have further information on Senator Samuel Dunlap. It is to be hoped that somewhere exists more stories about this brave band of settlers who founded the settlement called "Dunlap's Station".

Charles Cist (editor) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charles Cist (born in Philadelphia, 24 April 1792; died in Cincinnati, Ohio, 5 September 1868)[1] was a United States editor.


He was the son of printer Charles Cist. He was educated in Philadelphia, and during the War of 1812 was engaged in garrison duty in the eastern forts. After the war, he settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a few years later moved to Harmony, Pennsylvania, where he opened a store, and was for a time postmaster.

During the winter of 1827/8 he moved to Cincinnati, where he opened and superintended the first Sunday school in Cincinnati, and continued it until it grew beyond his control, when it was divided among the churches. Cist also worked for the success of free schools.

In 1843 Cist established The Western Weekly Advertiser, a family journal devoted to the early history of the First Nations of the west, and to statistics relating to Cincinnati and the state of Ohio. A few years later the name became Cist's Weekly Advertiser, and it continued until 1853. He prepared and published Cincinnati in 1841 (drawing largely on an 1815 work by Daniel Drake),Sketches and Statistics of Cincinnati in 1851Sketches and Statistics of Cincinnati in 1859, and The Cincinnati Miscellany, the last composed largely of incidents in the early settlements, with many of his own writings (2 vols., 1845 and 1846).[1]


He married Janet White in 1817. They had 13 children.[1] Their son Henry M. Cist was noted for his history of the Army of the Cumberland. Another son, Lewis Jacob Cist (born in Harmony, Pennsylvania, 20 November 1818; died in Cincinnati, Ohio, 30 March 1885), worked in banking, and was noted for his verses and his large collection of autographs and old portraits. His collection was sold in New York City in 1886 and 1887.
