PREFACE. of cen-The turbulence in Hillsdale for three-fourths a tury after its first settlement by civilized people and the different nationalities of those people has prevented any historic record being kept of them, and their scores of cemeteries, not being under legal protection, have be- come to a great extent obliterated. For want of historic records a majority of the most prominent inhal^itants living in town half century ago are now nearly for-the a records, half hence,gotten. Without such a century a majority of the present population of the town will be forgotten or oidy preserved by our better organized cem- eteries. Availing myself of my social intercourse with the old inhabitants of the town in the long-ago, I have attempted, in a crude way, to give the past history of the town. To am nowpeople of the that end I supplied with much additional and interesting matter, and am promised much more that may appear in a future volume. How- ever imperfect these volumes may be they will enable future historians to keep a record that will be vastly in- teresting to the people of the town for all time, and will produce a strong moral and religious influence. Many minute histories of individuals and families in the town would be very interesting and instructive—and I am prom- ised which will appear in futuresuch— a volume. Many New towns are taking histories fromEngland the epi- VI PREFACE. taplis in tlieir cemeteries, and I have received vol-just a ume of that character from Bridgewater, Massachusetts, which has given me important information in respect to my maternal ancestry. If encouraged by expressions from the people, I may be induced to give such history from the cemeteries in Hillsdale. JOHN F. COLLIN. Hillsdale, Y., Janiuiry 8t,li,N. 1883.
