  11. Cemetery across the road from Biro Manufacturing and at the end of their parking lot between two fence posts is the the entrance. (for great panoramic views of the Quarry, terrific in Fall)
  12. Fulton Rd.in nearby Port Clinton is also = DeLery portage= The End of the Old Sandusky-Scioto Indian Trail, it became General Harrison’s Trail of 1812. It’s in nearby Port Clinton  it’s is where they ran a brush fence across the width of the Peninsula to corral General Harrison’s Mens Horses until they came back from Canada in the War of 1812 after the battle of the Thamses.  Those Pioneer Men and boys portaged their boats and marched across Fulton when it was just and Indian Trail and were hauled out to Perry’s ships bound to take them to the Battle of the Thames in Canada,  Fulton  is the end land part of the Scioto Indian Trail in Ohio that leads to Detroit. I wonder if Simon Kenton was taken this way as a prisoner, that time that Simon Girty saved his life?
