Lately I have become concerned about the people I represent. I no longer see the Pride in your eyes that I once saw when I traveled down your streets in the Veteran's Day parades and on the 4th of July. The people that once saluted me and those that held their hand over their heart as I passed now just look around to see what others are doing. Could it be that they don't see me? This is what it must be, because I haven't changed. I am still the same flag that accompanied so many of our countrymen as they defended this great country.

AMOS F. HANNAH, hotel keeper, Nelson, was born in Nelson Township, Portage County, January 3, 1836, the second in a family of four children born to John and Clarissa (Foot) Hannah, natives of Connecticut and Massachusetts, respectively. John Hannah came to Ohio in 1813, lost his wife in 1844, and subsequently married Susan Hannah, who now resides with her step-son; John Hannah died in 1872. Our subject was married, in 1861, to Maria L. Clark, a native of Nelson, who has borne him five children, only two of whom, Archie and Ruby, are living. Mr. Hannah followed the occupation of a farmer until the spring of 1877, when he purchased the "Cascade House," erected in 1868 by H.L. Bancroft, at Nelson Ledges, one of the most romantic spots in Northern Ohio, which has become a very popular summer resort, and under Mr. Hannah's able management the business of this hotel has steadily increased.
