Do you know many Revolutionary Soldiers are buried in this county?
Here is a list of men buried in Huron County who fought in the war of the Revolution.

Communion set is dedicated
The special service for the dedication of the communion set presented to the Universalist Church by I.W. Goodell in memory of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. I. W. Bostwick, and his mother, Mrs. Mary Goodell, last evening was a very pleasing affair and largely attended.
Rev. William Couden, until very recently pastor of the church, was here to conduct the service, being assisted by the new pastor, Rev. Allen Brown. Mr. Couden paid beautiful eulogies to Mr. and Mrs. Bostwick and Mrs. Goodell.
The set consists of a handsome oak table and a vase, matching the baptismal fount. Both the table and vase are richly carved and exquisitely finished. Carved in the table are words of Christ uttered to his disciples at their last supper, "In Remembrance of me."
Visit makes second trip
A number of Norwalk men expect to go to Upper Sandusky early in June to attend the 34th annual reunion of the Ohio Association of Union Ex-Prisoners of War, which will be held there June 9 and 10. A fine program has been arranged and the courtesies extended to the visitors include an auto ride around town. Norwalk men who are ex-prisoners of the Civil War are the following well-known citizens: Marion Lester, Clark Canfield, E.P. Snyder, Wm. C. Penfield and Charles Stacey. So far as it is possible to learn, this completes the list. These men were prisoners at either Andersonville, Ga. Or at Belle Isle, Va. and still tell stirring tales of the days spent there.
