      This atlas has a history of Wood County, Ohio, including biographies, cha rts, maps,
      and illustrations. Hiram Pember and Harriet Arnold married for their seco nd marriages.
      His biography is listed under Freedom Twp section of the atlas. I believ e the line
      "They had eight children - Elizabeth, Catharine, ..." refers to childre n Hiram Pember
      had with Matilda Heath, not Harriet Arnold Walters Pember.
