Our Hoosier Heritage and Its Foundation 1680-1820 gives a short review of the Indian culture, individual Indian naming habits and tribal units found in the old Northwest Territory. Included in the book is a review of the early and little known men who helped determine the development of Indiana, their language peculiarities and recollections of early events in their lives. It contains a short review of the entry dates of the first Indiana counties and some time sensitive maps of the county boundary as development occurred.

About The Author

Ronald Bell is a Hoosier native with his family roots extending back to the early 1800s on Indiana soil. His family stock is both Scotch and Irish and well represented in the first generation settlers in the Indiana Territory. Both his paternal and maternal linage have original land grants in land north of the Ohio River and his family served in the early Militia and State Government during the tumultuous 1800s. Bell has a keen interest in the history of South Central Indiana and since his retirement in 2000 has participated in County and State historical associations. Currently he is the state appointed County Historian for Lawrence County. To his literary credit, he has previously published two local history books, The Early History of Indiana Limestone and The Rise and Fall of the Southern Indiana Railroad and it’s founder John R Walsh.

Here is a short interview with the author.
