Polly Frost

Mrs. Polly Frost died at ther residence near Coolville, Troy township, Feb. 9th, 1881, in her 87th year. She ranks as "one of the first settlers of Athens county", coming here from Massachusetts in 1797. Her father helped to erect the Barrow's grist mill a mile from the mouth of Federal Creek, the first mill of the kind in Athens county. When she came to our county there were but foot-paths between here and Athens, and the entire Hocking valley was covered by a dense forest, inhabited by panthers, bears, wolves and deer. Mrs. Frost was a very estimable woman, a good christian and withal, a devoted patroit. She had eight grandsons and one son in the Union army, the latter was starved to death at Andersonville prison, a victim of rebel barbarity.
