Today, few area residents recall that Wayne County was once a major tobacco producing center, the culture transplanted here with German settlers who migrated from the Lancaster, Pa. area.  Often the initial cash crop that a frontiersman would plant, it was typically discontinued in favor of wheat, corn, sheep and cows when conditions permitted.  Jacob Gish and his sons, however, were very successful exceptions to this pattern by perfecting the skills needed to grow, cure and ship high-quality tobacco.  Largely through their efforts, the Chippewa and Styx valleys became a major tobacco growing area by the end of the 19th century.
