Page 102 - J. W. Eldred, M. D., is one of the two early doctors mentioned
on page 46 of the journal of Jerry Church.
Page 35 - Samuel Harvey and Rev. J. J. Harvey are listed as members of
the Thespian Society organized in 1822 by Dr. Joseph Hunt (the other
early doctor), grandson of Joseph Hunt who came to Old Town in 1790 and
purchased land from John Fleming. The Thespian Society met once a week
at the inn owned by Alexander Mahon.
Page 21 - Philip Fithian, a licensed Presbyterian minister, in his
journal writes about a canoe ride with several young people, one of whom
is Jennie (Jane) Reed. He also writes about spending time with the Reed
family at the Fort on July 29, 1775.
Page 22 - William Reed, born in Donegal, Ireland in 1740, came here at
age 7, moved to Old Town in 1773, built a log cabin on East Water Street
and called it Reed's Fort. He married Jane Mitchell, and they had 5 sons
and 5 daughters. After the great runaway, they bought a tract of land
across the river where Reed died in 1808. Jane, the daughter of William
Reed, is the only one of the 5 daughters written about in history books,
and she never married.
