      The following is copied from page 340 of History of Ross and Highland Counties, Ohio: "The early settlers had their times for enjoyment and jolity, among which were gatherings for log rollings, house raising, corn hucking, etc. At such times rhymes were made and sung, in which the names of most of the settlers were brought in something as follows:

      "I see a bear,
      Said Jacob hare
      Shoot him down
      Said George Brown
      He's very poor
      Said Ben McClure
      Poor as carrion
      Said Sam Irwin
      Throw it to the dogs
      Said Alex Scroggs, etc.
      Laurence A. Weaver, Jr. is the compiler.

      In the compiler's file 47, generation 6, will be found a photocopy of a very old hand-written document, which appears to be in very bad condition. The hand-writing seems old-fashioned and belabored. There are apparently two documents photocopied on the same paper, so that wording below follows the positioning, misspelling, etc. as closely as possible" Jacb Hare was born about 1730 in Germany. Died about 1820 in Ross County, O. and buried in Twin Township. His wife Christine Afau was born about 1734 in Germany. Lived in Huntington County, Pennsylvania on Hares valley. Died in Ross County, O. about 1823. Their children were Michel, Daniel, Jacob, Philip and Elizabeth Hare. Lewis Igo married Elizabeth Hare in Kentucky April 3rd, 1794.".

      Ed. Note by Michael A. McKenzie: future. researchers interested in this line will need to evluate the discrepancy concerning Elizabeth Hare marrying Lewis Igo/Igou and also being married to John McKenzie, b. 1786. See the notes on the home page of John McKenzie (c. 1786) and the following from Find-A-Grave, which is confusing and calls into question whether this Elizabeth hare was married to John McKenzie.

      irth: 1780
      Death: Dec. 7, 1803
