The grandfather of Abraham Peters, who married Edith Runyan, also named Abraham Peters, came with is wife from Germany in colonial days.  They located on a farm in Rockingham County, Virginia, where he took up 900 acres of land under what was known, in the English law, as "Tomahawk Rights," which consisted of tomahaw blazing on trees to mark the lines.  The Peters and Zircle plantations joined each other.  Both families owned Negro slaves.  They treated them kindly and refused to sell them.  They supported a colored Baptist minister for the benefit of the darkies.  The slaves were taught to b e prompt and regular attendants to Sunday School and church.  The old people died there and the estate, by unfair means, mysteriously passed into the hands of an uncle, who completely robbed the heirs of their rights.  They started out from the once happy home in all directions and trace of their whereabouts was lost.

The father of the husband of Edith Runyan, also named Abraham Peters, was raised on his parents' plantation in Rockingham County, Virginia.  A childhood and school day romance started on these neighboring estates, where he frequently met Catherine Zircle.  About the time of our first frost comes to make persimmons edible, in 1790, they were married.  She was born and reared to womanhood o n the adjoining plantation, owned by her parents, and given a good education.  About 25 years after their marriage they left Virginia and came to Ohio.  They stopped for a while in Barnesville, Belmont County.  In 1814 they settled on a farm near Byesville, in Guernsey County, Ohio, which is about four miles south of Cambridge.  At the time of their landing here everything was new and the county had only been organized four years.  The upland is hilly. Thee is much excellent land in the valley of Wills creek and its branches, which are about one-third of the county.  It is wonderfully good grassland.  Sheep, cattle, hay and coal are largely produced.  Later they moved with their family to the Penrose farm, on Wills creek, near Byesville, Ohio.  He died on a farm at Trail Run, Ohio , about 1 830, and was buried in the Enon cemetery at Byesville, Ohio.

The Runyan family came in from Philadelphia and the Peters family from Virginia about the same time, both locating near Byesville, Ohio.  It was here that Abraham Peters went a courting and was married to Edith Runyan about "peach blooming time," in 1829.  She was a milliner by trade and her specialty was that of making and whitening what was known in those days as Leghorn bonnets.  She was also a weaver of home-spun linens, woolen goods and carpets.  She possessed a wonderful memory and after hearing a sermon she could repeat it almost word for word to the folks at home.  They remained in Guernsey County until 1834, at which time they moved to Morrow County, bought a farm and lived there until the fall of 1847, at which time they went to Wood County, Ohio.  They bought a farm of all timber land one mile north of where North Baltimore, Ohio, is now located.  They operated a limekiln, which they erected on the farm.  It was necessary to keep a fire in the kiln at night as well as day.  Wolves were troublesome and plenty in those days and sometimes the night fireman would have to flee to the top of the kiln to escape their ravenous appetite.  A few years later they sold this farm and bought another a mile west of what is now Hammansburg, Ohio.  They were always farmers and lived on this farm their remaining days.  He died September 1, 1875, aged 82 years, 6 month s and 1 5 days.  She died February 17, 1895, aged 86 years and 5 months.  Both were buried in the Hough cemetery, at the north edge of North Baltimore, Ohio.  They were members of the Winebrennerian church.

Some Madison County men have been buying sheep for shipment there.  The Guernsey County sheep are in good repute.  The efforts of Mr. Cowden, Mr. Spencer and others will soon give them a wider reputation.  These Madison county buyers bought some very fine ones from Wm.

Solomon Peters is a brother of Abraham Peters and was born on a farm in Rockingham County, Va.  When a boy of fourteen he came with his parents to Ohio.  Their first location was in the town of Barnesville, Belmont County.  Later they settled on a farm near Byesville, in Guernsey County.  He was married to Isabel Dickison, about "chestnut gathering time," in 1822.  She was born November 20, 1803.  She died January 14, 1836.  They had 10 children.  An infusion of fox-hunting blood must have come over in the "Mayflower."  It cropped out in George Washington and very many of the Virginians.  Mr. Peters was fond of the fox-hunt and on pleasant evenings you could find father and the boys on the hill listening to the music of the hounds. He was always a farmer and owned 196 acres of land near Byesville, Ohio.  He had a fine flock of sheep and plenty of good shepherds to guard them.  He was twice married and was the father of twenty-two children.  The increased voters in this great family has enough influence and voting power to cause the state of Ohio to go Democratic more frequently than it now does.  He married his second wife, Elizabeth Devore, June 12, 1836.  She was born in Guernsey County, near Byesville, Ohio.  She was of French extraction and descended from one of the eighteen families from the British Isle of Guernsey, near the coast of France, who were among t he earl y settlers of this section.  Largely through them and aided by the Virginia settlers the county derived the name of Guernsey, and was organized in 1810.  Ten children were born to his first marriage and twelve to his second marriage.  He died January 31, 1892, and his wife, Elizabeth, died July 9, 1893.  Both are buried in Enon cemetery at Byesville, Ohio.

Attempted Murder?

A Peaceful Citizen Assailed With A Revolver

At a late hour Saturday night Lloyd Selby, a well-known citizen of Jackson township who resides on the farm of his father-in-law, Thomas Williams, a half-mile south of Byesville, was called to the door by a rapping.  As he left his bed he demanded, "What do you want?" and the answer came back, "Stottlemire wants to see you."  Without waiting to dress he went to the door and opened it, to have a revolver thrust in his face.  Observing his peril he dodged, just as his would-be assign pulled the trigger, and the ball whizzed past him through the house, cutting the curtains of a window opposite.  But Mr. Selby did not escape unharmed, as in throwing his head back he struck a nail which cut his head slightly.  After firing, his assailant ran off into the darkness but not before he was closely observed and recognized - as he claims - by Mr. Selby.  As he ran away the fellow dropped a pint whisky bottle with a paper stopple and this paper contains writing which it is thought may be a clue to aid in the detection of the party dropping it.  This is the story as Mr. Selby tells it.  Monday morning Selby made affidavit before Justice Wm. Smith, charging Solomon Peters, Jr., with "malicious assault with intent to kill and Peters was arrested.  On Tuesday he appeared in the Justice's Court, waived an examination, and was held in bonds of $500 to answer to the Common Pleas Court.  It is but fair to say that Mr. Peters indignantly and emphatically denies any connection with the alleged shooting.
