1 "History of Athens County" by Charles M. Walker, 1869. Chapter VIII, Alexander Township, Page 351, states:

"Among the residents of Alexander as early as 1805 were Robert Ross, William Gabriel, Amos Thompson, Edward Martin, Isaac Stanley, John, Jonathan, Joseph, Thomas and Isaac Brooks, Matthew Haning, Thomas and John Armstrong, Jared, Israel, and Martin Bobo, Caleb Merritt, Joel Lowther, Michael Bowers, William Strong, Esquire Bowman, Abner Smith, Charles and Isaiah Shepherd, Thomas Sharp, and Richard and William Reeves. The population of the township in 1820 was 854; in 1830 it was 882; in 1840 it was 1,451; in 1850 it was 1,735; in 1860 it was 1,675. Hebbardsville, pleasantly situated in the western part of the township, is the principal center of population." 
Bobo, Jared (I539)
 
2 "History of Athens County, Ohio," by Charles M. Walker, 1869, page 352 states: "Jeremiah Clements and Israel Bobo, noted as hunters in the early settlement of the county, killed in one season sixty-five bears in one neighborhood, included in the site of the present town of Hebbardsville. The same men were fond of whiskey, and, to get a supply, took a horse-load of bear skins to the Ohio River and traded for a barrel of the desired article. The next difficulty was how to get it home. They finally cut two poles from the forest and formed sort of a drag to be drawn by the horse, the largest ends of the pole resting on the ground. The barrel of whiskey was then secured between the poles and thus dragged through the woods to Alexander township, where they lived. This was the first barrel of whiskey ever brought into Alexander. In after years the use of it became common and greatly the fashion, but at the present time it is not kept for sale at any place in the township." Bobo, Israel (I536)
