The latest date entered is 1895 and all others are much older. Its in very good shape for the age. It has 4 pages of names and a couple of notes inside loose. On the back of a letter dated 1885 says,
"April 20-1885 Joseph Johnson was born August 31, 1811 on the old homestead east of Clinton in Morris township (looks like Honot) County Ohio."
Thanks to Linda Hoover for sending in a correction to "April 20-1885 Joseph Johnson was born August 31, 1811 on the old homestead east of Clinton in Morris township (looks like Honot) County Ohio." Linda tells me that "(looks like Honot)" is actually HURON County and Clinton is now Fitchville, Ohio
