that this issue contains something of the history of every community with the exception of Crellin, Bloomington, Bittinger, Jennings, Swanton, Ryans Glade, Hoyes, Merrill, Gorman and Avilton. These were not omitted because of less importance but because of lack of space. The histories of Crellin by Erval Ream and Bloomington by the late F. E. Rathburn have been published in "The Glades Star"; also the other communities mentioned above with the exception of Avilton.

This issue is noteworthy because of the large number of people who have had a prominent part in its production: The Sponsors, Writers, and Advertisers. It is truly a testimony to the growing interest in local history, and that so many people are capable of writing interesting history about Garrett County. Perhaps this issue can be the springboard for a much larger and comprehensive history of Garrett. One volume should deal with community and institutional history, the second volume should deal with the history of the families.

CORRECTIONS OF FAYETTE COUNTY ISSUE:

(1) Fort Necessity was first rebuilt in 1932 instead, of 1934

(2) "Yards" for "Years" line 24 page 67

(3) Preston Martin was designated as the man in the picture on page 70. This is incorrect. The man was a stranger.
