In doing research on my family who many lived in the Fort Seneca area, I was pleased to locate such a wonderful resource. In fact, I went to Tiffin, Ohio to locate this book and was amazed to find it via Google. Even more amazing is the fact that it can be downloaded free on Amazon.com. What a long way we have come in doing family research! Another interesting fact was that William Lang was the editor of the first newspaper in Tiffin, The Seneca Adler printed in German, April 1848.
I've only read the first 31 pages of introduction and was initially shocked at the language, "savages" etc. but am keeping in mind that this book was written in 1880 and attitudes were different. So far the history is detailed and, I assume, accurate from a white man's point of view.
I look forward to continuing reading this valuable history written by my ancestor. Emma Lang Dillon was a direct descendant of William Lange.
