(The following is an extract from A HISTORY OF ADAMS COUNTY, OHIO by Nelson W. Evans and Emmons B. Stivers published in 1900 by E. B. Stivers of West Union, OH:)
Page 451: "Monroe Township was the home of many old soldiers of the Revolution. Among them was Henry Aldred who is buried in (McGovney)Beach's Cemetery on the McColm farm. He was wounded at the siege of Charleston by the British, which lamed him for life. He had an enduring hatred for everything English. Living in the vicinity of Aldred's home in Monroe Township was John Pike who had been in the English navy. At a log rolling at old Edward Hemphill's, Pike was relating his experience in the navy, and asked Aldred if he remembered what fine music they had as they marched into Charleston after its surrender. This so infuriated Aldred, that crippled as he was, it took several of the bystanders to keep him from striking Pike with a hand spike."
