Research taken from the Hiram College Archives about itinerant preachers in the Western Reserve. The life of a nineteenth century preacher was difficult, with long separations from family, sickness, fatigue, and difficult journeys on foot and horseback. William Hayden, Amasa Clark, and Francis M. Green are the preachers discussed. Francis M. Green is Frank Green, author, historian, and former sexton of Stow Cemetery.
