Note: The biographies of the Baum, Sandusky (Sodowsky), and Sconce families are intertwined with multiple marriages between the families, and the repetition of many names from generation to generation. Their stories are amazing. However, the lack of accuracy, neglect of important facts, plus the haphazard writing style of that century, make it impossible to assure the reader that all of the details are accurate.

Note: William's uncle, Abraham Sandusky, brother of Josiah Sandusky, lost $300,000 at the Exchange Bank of Danville. William was acquainted with Abraham Lincoln. Note: Several dates in this biography seem to be inaccurate regarding father Josiah, mother Margaret Susan, and William. Some are in error, some are not. Josiah's birth date of 1837 is probably correct because his Bio 747, 748, states he was born in Carrol Township in that year. The birth date for son William is given as 1826, but it should be May 27, 1880. Margaret Susan is the only wife of Josiah mentioned, and her birth date is listed as 1851; Josiah built his house in 1872 and married Margaret Susan in 1873 when she was 22 and he was 36.

Note: The biographies of the Baum, Sandusky (Sodowsky), and Sconce families are intertwined with multiple marriages between the families, and the repetition of many names from generation to generation. The lack of accuracy, neglect of important facts, plus the haphazard writing style of that century, make it impossible to assure the reader that all of the information is accurate. The stories are amazing and inspiring.

Note: The biographies of the Baum, Sandusky (Sodowsky), and Sconce families are intertwined with multiple marriages between the families, and the repetition of many names from generation to generation. The lack of accuracy, neglect of important facts, plus the haphazard writing style of that century, make it impossible to assure the reader that all of the information is accurate.

Note: "Sandusky" was originally "Sodowsky, its Polish origin, but soon changed to "Sandusky". 193, 473, 474, 493, 494, 495, 500, 503, 504. Originally Polish royalty banished because of a political dispute, the Sodowskys (later called Sandusky) came to America in 1756. One of the forefathers, (probably James, f/o Abraham) married a sister of Gov. Inslip. He may have been the Sodowsky who became an Indian trader, and was killed by angry Indians who murdered him near Lake Erie, mistaking him for another white man. They deeply regretted their action and named the bay in his honor. Also, the towns of Upper and Lower Sandusky were named in his honor.

Owner of famous Short-horn farm, Woodland Stock Farm. Harvey brought the first car load of thoroughbred Short-horn cattle to Vermilion County in 1862. Harvey's right hand man for 10 years was James McMellan, who was at his bedside when Harvey died. James met his future wife, Ida (Dye) McMellan at the Woodland Farm as she served as maid and companion of Mrs Sodowsky for 11 years. From 751, 752 Bio of Frank A. Carter: When Frank's father, Abraham Carter, died, Frank was only 9 years old, and he went to live with his uncle on his famous Woodland Farm. He was the "show boy" of his uncle's prize winning livestock. Frank lived with his uncle from 1869 until 1881.

Education was limited to subscription schools. His father was ill, so Alvin took the lead in farm work. Many times he went 30 to 40 miles to the mill, and many times the boy went 16 miles to Danville in the dark of night to get a doctor for his father. He stayed in his father's home for more than 22 years. Alvin built a log house on his father's property, and when his father died, Alvin purchased land from the heirs to add to his inherited land, except that of his mother. Alvin had less than $50 when he married. His property finally reached 600 acres, so he gave each child a quarter section, and to one child a house and lot. Alvin was the administrator of the estate for both his father, and the Lee estate of his wife's family. He was also the administrator for the estates of Aaron Hardin, William Clutter, Alfred Harden, and Mr. Yount. Alvin served as Assessor and Collector, Road Commissioner, and served as School Director for 12 years. Note, Page 320: Aaron Dalby was "bound out" for a term of six years to Alvin Stearns.
