The Urbana Daily Citizen
February 14, 1888
I was born in Windham, CT, on 25th October, 1803, and lived there until 15 years of age. In 1818, my parents moved to Ohio. We came across the mountain with an ox team, we were on the road 3 or 4 weeks. We stopped near Dayton that summer and in September removed to Darby Plains where my father built a cabin about one mile south of Woodstock. At age of 21 and on my birthday, I was married to Jeremiah Clark and with him traveled back to CT, crossing the mountains in a wagon. I lived there eleven years where my husband died in 1833, and in 1835 I came back to Ohio with four children, the eldest being nine years old and the youngest three years. I came by steamboat and canal as far as Columbus and then by wagon to Clark County where my parents then lived. In 1838, I married Marvin Gager and in 1845 we moved to Woodstock where we have lived most of our lives. Two of my six children have passed on, of the four left, the youngest is 42 years. I am now at the advanced age of 84 years and enjoying good health. ML Gager.
