Reminiscences about the early history of the Village of Saxonburg, in Butler County, Pennsylvania, from 1831 to 1840, written by the eldest son of the famous John A. Roebling, engineer and founder of this village.
About 1800, John Ralson became one of the first settlers along the banks of the Slippery Rock Creek in Butler County. It was from this pioneer that his great-grandson William A. Ralston, the author, gathered most of his information about early times in the area. After William's death in 1945, his manuscript was published. Now this fascinating book, retyped for legibility, has been reproduced for the enjoyment of today's generations.
