Birth: Jan. 9, 1779
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 12, 1861
Sandusky County
Ohio, USA

Pioneer of Sandusky Co., Ohio.

George Glick served in the War of 1812 as a Private in Richard Hooker's Ohio Militia Cavalry from July 30th to August 13, 1813. The payroll was for 8 dollars a month, and George served for 15 days earning a total of 3 dollars and 81 cents for his service, and an allowance for his horse at 40 cents per day.

He died at the age of 82 yrs., 1 mo., 18 days and is buried in the Dana Cemetery, Green Creek Twp., Sandusky Co., Ohio.

It is not known where George and Christina were originally buried in this cemetery as their stones have been propped up next to a tree. George's is on the right side and Christina's is on the left.

NOTE: The following notations were found in some Court Records of Sandusky County, Ohio;

"George Glick was accused of holding tavern and selling spirituous liquor without a license, the first time was in 1832, for which he was acquitted, and in 1834, when he pleaded guilty and was fined $5.00".

George and his family lived across the Maumee Pike from Amos W. Crane, near Fremont, Ohio.
It was said at that time in history there was a tavern every mile on the Pike. This was the first road cut through the wilderness in 1825. It was a virtual swamp and most of the year was many feet deep in mud. Those who lived along the Pike made a living by keeping tavern, pulling people out of the mud, and putting people up for the night. Because of the Black Swamp which went through much of Ottawa and Sandusky Counties, this northwestern Ohio area was the last part of Ohio to be settled. Most of the early pioneers died of malaria, or ague. It is described as a jungle, infested with wolves and mosquitoes.
There was very little sunlight except what filtered through where settlers had hacked down the trees.
They say it was knee deep at all times in muck and was often as high as a horse's belly. Many people feared this area and would detour around by the lake and then pass through along the Pike (now known as Route 20). There were logs found buried 12-15 feet down in the mud. These were logs which at one time were put on the road so they could travel over the mud, but in time this "road" sunk.

I can well understand the need for the "spirituous liquors" of those old pioneers who so bravely dealt with the elements of that swamp.

According to a file in the Hayes Library, Sandusky County, Ohio, a folder containing information on George Glick stated that "On May 12, 1859, John S. Greene was assigned as guardian for George Glick. At that time George was living with his daughter, Esther Crane. There was a listing of bills and expenses pertaining to the care of George Glick, by his daughter Esther, and these receipts had George's signature from June and July of 1859, after that all receipts were signed with his mark X.
