History of Pemberville, Ohio 1876 to 1926

History of

Pemberville, Ohio

 

While researching my family genealogy and going through old papers, I found this history of Pemberville and "Old Freedom." The document is 24 pages. I have converted the complete booklet into PDF format, which you can download here (file size is 37 MB). In addition, I have created a web page for each page of the book.

This booklet was issued to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Pemberville and covers the history from 1876 to 1926. It was written by Mr. C. S. Van Tassel of Bowling Green, Ohio.
