    (Reference to Permelia Ashbrook's age place this history as written in 1906. Therefore I assume it is from the following book: History of Pickaway County and Representative Citizens by Van Cleaf, Publ Biographical Publ Co., Chicago, 1906  
  I wonder if this is the complete transcription since in 1900 Henton wed his third wife and she is not mentioned. I think a second page might be missing from this transcription.
