The County of Fulton, Ohio, by Thomas Mikesell, Madison, Wis. Northwestern Historical Association, 1905....Pg. 629
Valentine Winslow is a type of those progressive and energetic farmers who brought the magnificent development of the agricultural resources of Fulton county, and he is numbered among the representative farmers and stock-growers of Pike township, where his entire life has been passed. He was born on the farm which is now his home, the date of his nativity having been March 20, 1843, and he is a son of Valentine and Lydia Ann (Welch) Winslow. His father was born in Lewis county, New York, in 1804, and at the age of fifteen years, in company with his brother Martin, who was thirteen years of age at the time, he came to Ohio, making the trip in a one-horse wagon and in due time, arriving at their destination, the home of Willard Gunn, at Waterville, Lucas county. This journey was accomplished in the year of 1818, so that the youthful brothers became pioneers of the Buckeye State. In the winter of 1832, Mr. Winslow took up his residence on the farm now owned by his son and namesake, the subject of this sketch......He developed his farm and became one of the honored citizens of the county, where he passed the remainder of his life, his death occurring on the homestead, in 1857, and his wife passed away in 1860. Valentine Winslow Sr., endured the hardships and deprivations incident to the pioneer epoch in this section, which is now marked by opulent prosperity, and he laborer faithfully in making a home in the wilderness...........In 1834 he utilized his ox-team and wagon in bearing the corpse of an Indian to the grave, having maintained friendly relations with the red men who still remained in this locality..........
