    ___________________

    Beside the many hardships, labors and sufferings in getting here and making themselves homes, quite a few settlers along where Blair is now situated were visited by a fire this spring of 1806.

    On the 6th of May fire was set to a Job [a tract of land with timber slashed down ready to be burned so that the land could be farmed later] of 10 or 15 acres, soon after which a great wind arose, and swept through the new clearings and destroyed fences, houses and barns.

    Abraham Stauffer had his barn burnt.
    Abraham Bechtel had his house and barn burnt.
    Jacob Bechtel's house was saved but his barn and everything else were consumed.
    Nathaniel Dodge who was the last of the settlers along the river, had two barns with all their contents burnt.

    The fire went on making the most fearful destruction of all kinds of valuable timber. Thus those settlers who were probably the most advanced with their new homes were suddenly left without house, food or clothing, and were obliged to go below Dundas through mud, water, swamp and forest for provisions and other necessaries, which were not obtainable from their neighbors.
