Notes: "In Dave Webb's device Mathais Noheimer has depicted that printer's fertile Scioto valley with Mt. Logan in the distance, a scene which inspired the Seal of the State of Ohio; a canal boat on the Ohio and Erie Canal, Chillicothe's (his home town) first link with the outside world; and "Old Susan," the only locomotive of the K&A Railroad in Webb's Ross county." © James Lamar Weygand
