The original owner of this volume, Cyrus Blood, was a Pennsylvania pioneer. Cyrus Blood (1795-1860), b. New Ipswich, New Hampshire; d. Marienville, Pennsylvania. Educated in Boston, he emigrated to Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, in 1817 to become principal of the academy there; afterwards he was principle of the academy in Hagerstown, Maryland; he later became a professor at Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pa. He was ambitious to found a county in Pennsylvania, and bushwacked into what was almost unbroken wilderness in northern Jefferson County, purchasing a vast tract of land, taking possession in 1833. First known as "the Blood settlement," the dream of founding a county failed, but the town of Marienville (named for his wife, Marien) remains.
