W. H. Beers: History of Clinton County
The W. H.Beers Co.'s History of Clinton County, by Pliny Durant, et.al. was published in the 1870s. It is an excellent
resource for the early history of the area, although somehwat flawed by being subscription-based for inclusion of prominent citizens' biographies.
The work is presented as it is scanned. If you have a copy of this edition and would like to volunteer to finish the transciption
