There was an old cabin between Piketon and Beaver on Germany Rd. that is said to have been used as shelter for a night by Morgan and his raiders. I lived not far from the property and know the owner very well. His family has had the land for many years and would not tear down the cabin knowing its historical significance. Sadly, the cabin finally fell several years ago. He had no choice but to clean up the rubble, as it was very near his home.

How sad that was. That cabin was there for so long. I have lived very close to that property my entire life and when that happened I was very upset that we lost that piece of history for our community.

I like the Pee Pee township story. Correct me if I'm wrong....but the story I heard is that some of the early settlers found a tree where a scout had carved his initials....not sure of his first or last name but apparently his first name started with a P and his last name also started with the same letter.

My sister lived in the area for a while and talked to me about running for political office.....I told her I'd make up some Pee Pee Trustee t-shirts.

I have recently learned some interesting history during a family reunion on my mothers side. Her mother, my grandmother is a Satterfield, and one of her family has trace the Satterfields all the way back to 1802 in the Morgans Fork area. This would have been 1 year before Ohio became a state. They still had a portrait of the man, cant remember his name.

Punisher,
I think we're a little closer together than you may know.

No problem 73.

I'll ask Coach Beekman. I'd say if anyone around here knows it'll be him.

I asked Blaine Beekman this morning about this and he said that the settlement was out near the present location of Buchanan at the intersection of Nigpen Road and Carl Penn Road. If you type in Pee Pee Settlement on Yahoo there is quite a bit of related information.

I don't know him. I was teaching and coaching at Meigs in the early 1990's. Sounds like he was a dandy though.

The Noel family is a wonderful group of people.

Wiley Dunham was born on Tuesday, January 30, 1877, in Piketon, Ohio. Dunham was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 24, 1902, with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Charlie Starr was born on Friday, August 30, 1878, in Pike County, Ohio. Starr was 26 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 29, 1905, with the St. Louis Browns.

Branch Rickey, I have found several places where he was supposed to be born in Stockdale, Ohio and Flat, Ohio. I dont know where Flat is, but Stockdale is on the Pike/Scioto border, but it is officially in Pike County

These 3 players are the only paid professional players from Pike County that I can find. They all three played for the St. Louis Cardinals or Browns.

Others from Pike county have made it to either farm teams or lower levels of professional sports, but these 3 are the only I can find that actually made it to the highest level of professional sports.

All of these can be verified on baseball almanac.

The Lucas Mansion looks a lot like the old court house downtown.
