George Ish

February 28, 1878
Taken From the Henry Republican

The Peru Herald has a short sketch of the late George Ish of Putnam county. He was one of the oldest settlers of this part of the state, locating near Peoria in 1822, and near Granville in 1828. He was in the war of 1812, and was employed as a scout. He also held a captain's commission. He had much to do with the Indians of those time, gaining their confidence and good will. They entered the settlers cabins without ceremony, smoked their pipes in silence, accepted wheatever was given in the way of food, and departed as quietly as they came. His cabin was a double log house, as were most of the pioneer dwellings of those days. Mr. Ish lived to a good old age. He had several children who survived him, of whom Bazdel Ish still resides on the homestead.
