Note: Noah built and operated the only store, a General Store, in the old town of Foraker. After the railroad decided to build the train station a mile north and a mile west, it was decided that Foraker should be moved to the new site. Noah moved his store on a pair of skids and with the use of horses from Old Foraker to New Foraker. Noah Kauffman then took charge of the store. Work trains began showing up. On April 27, 1893, the first freight train ran over the Wabash-a west bound freight No. 97, had a few cars, old hand brakes, link and pin couplers, and a small engine. (My great-great uncle Nils Svenson invented the car coupler that is still used today, see Mansson Genealogy) On May 30, 1893, the first passenger train was run, going eastbound No. 54. Foraker Station was opened this same year. In 1893, buildings began to pop up every where. Noah Yoder erected a new store building on the southwest corner of the junction. Noah operated a general merchandise store for awhile as well as was postmaster in the same building. Another building was erected against his store, and later on Noah took possession of this building also, enlarged his store by cutting a large door through the walls between the buildings and throwing both rooms into one store. When Yoder sold out, the door was blocked up and became two stores again. There were living quarters above the store. We don't know if Noah ever lived there. Solomon Miller and Noah Yoder were the main stays at Foraker in its early history. Solomon and Noah erected a building just south of the little old harness shop and after its completion, put in a stock of buggies and wagons. Later, the building was made into a church. Another friend of Noah's, John Detwiler (a personal friend later on in life and his second wife, my wedding shower being held at their home [Karolyn]) had a blacksmith shop just north of the railroad tracks on the west side of Main Street. Detwiler also put up the first dwelling house, ended up being the 3rd house east of the depot. Detwiler and John Blenis put up a cider mill next to the blacksmith shop and did an enormous business. Later, they sold the business to Noah Yoder who run the cider mill two seasons and then sold out to George Wernitz, who moved the mill. Noah Yoder, John Detwiler, Emmanuel Kime, Lorento Kime, Earl Mishler (our church song leader), and Clarence Mishler then moved to Kempster, Wisconsin.

In her own handwriting were found these words: €œI have always tried to live the life of a Christian.€ Mrs. Vining was here during the big Indian scare of 1878 when all the neighbors gathered at the home of Lennie & Dan Gapin on the Sappy. Among us all she ranked always as a woman of sympathy, a kind neighbor, a devoted mother and a true mould in bravely meeting the stern requirements and often the disappontments of life. (Oibt of Mrs. W. H. Vining, The Beaver Valley Tribune 2/1943) William came to Furnas Co., Nebraska in 1873. He took a homestead on Sappa Creek and this place was his home until the time of his death. In February 1877, he married at Fremont, NE to Sarah Ridenour. For children were born to them. The oldest and the youngest died in infancy, but two daughters and the wife are left to mourn. The daughters are Mrs. Traxler and Mrs. McCarty, both of Furnas Co. The deceased was a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge at Beaver City, and was a man highly esteemed by his fellow citizens.

Mr. Vining was elected Marshal in April of 1858, and reelected in 1859. In 1860 he was appointed Special Police, after William Case was appointed Marshal. In 1863, Mr Vining was elected Coroner. In May of 1864, Mr. Vining was appointed Marshal over Mr. William Case, but Mr. Case was elected again the following year. The years between 1865 and 1873 may have been when Mr Vining served as Constable. At any rate, no mention is made of him until November 3, 1873, when he served 35 days as Deputy Marshal. On May 4, 1874, he was again appointed Deputy Marshal and reappointed in 1875, 1876, 1877 and 1878. During this time he was also elected and served as coroner. (Elected in 1876 for a two-year term). On May 1, 1882, Mr Vining was appointed Deputy Marshal for the last time. He apparently resigned during that year due to his failing eye sight. Mr. Vining was married to Sarah (Newport) Vining. She was born November 15, 1814 and died on January 6, 1892. He died October 31, 1899, both are buried in Oak Grove Cemetery. * The following is from the Nov. 2, 1899 issue of The Democratic Herald * Elam Carter Vining, the oldest native born white resident, of this county, died this morning at 1:30 o'clock at his home at 125 South Sandusky street after suffering internal injuries sustained from a fall down cellar last Wednesday evening at which time, on account of his blindness, he mistook the cellar door for the sitting room door and plunged head long to the room below. Mr. Vining had one of the most interesting histories pertaining  to his life of any man who lived in this part of the state. His father was born in Hartford, Conn., in 1772 and came to Delaware county and was married. In 1806 the deceased's mother died and was buried in Berkshire township where his sister yet resides, aged 87 years.Mr. Vining Sr., married again and on March 9, 1811, Elam Vining was born.   He inherited the frugality and good qualities of both his parents and always lived a life worthy of imitation. He was industrious in his         youth and was well liked by everyone. This good quality him his life time and at the hour of his death, his friends numbered into the hundreds. As a testimony of his sterling worth a review of his military life is subjoined. For a great part of his life, he took a deep interest in military affairs in this, then village. He was at the head of or in the ranks of more than one company between the years of 1830 and 1862 and had the bearing of a soldier always on the street. In the latter part of May 1862 upon a requisition of President Abraham Lincoln on Governor Tod, of Ohio, for several Regiments of Infantry and Cavalry for duty for three months (this was the second three month's call) he enlisted. The Company to which he was attached, was Co C, of the 86th O.V.I. and organized at Camp Chase, Ohio. The company was nearly equally divided between students of the O.V.I. and the Delaware county boys. The company was officered as follows: Captain Alfred N Meade,First Lieutenant Elam C. Vining, Second Lieutenant Hugh Stephen Crawford, the first a student, the second and third citizens of Delaware. Hon. B. Burns, of Mansfield, was Col., the Lt. Col. H B Hunter of Lancaster, O., Major, Wilson C Lemert, of Bucyrus. The Company left Camp Chase on the historical 17th day of June 1862, for Clarksburg, Va. This was at the time when what is now West Virginia was struggling to become detached from the territory lying east of the Blue Ridge. The regiment did much guard duty along the Parkersburg branch of the B.O.R.R. made some narrow escapes from battle with the great hordes of Confederates tramping or riding the grass down under Jenkins, Imboden, and others. At one time in August 1862, six companies of the 86th and the same number of the 6th Va., were left at Clarksburg to guard $1,000,000 worth of military stores, with 25,000 Confederates headed that way, less than a score of miles away. The regiment was mustered out at Camp Delaware September 25, 1862. His official relationship with city and county bears him another credit.  He was one of the youngest officers that ever served in Central Ohio. He began his public life in 1837 as assistant constable and continued until 1882 when he resigned from the police force on account of his failing eyesight which afterward developed into total blindness, for which he drew the governments highest pension. He filled the offices of assistant constable, constable, police, city marshal, sheriff, street commissioner, coroner, all to his credit and to the satisfaction of his constituency. His public life record was his pride and he referred to it during his days of retirement with justified pleasure and pride. The deceased possessed many traits of character that won him the high esteem of all who knew him. He was kind to everybody and was particularly kind to those in distress. He was in this city, his wife having proceeded him to the other world in 1892, after six days of  illness.The children of the family now deceased are:  Maria, Jessie, William, Henry, Florence, Mrs Mary E Archor of Brooklyn and Mrs. Fannie Green of Florida. The survivors of the family are: Mrs J O Smith of Columbus, Mrs. Emma Arrighi a City Missionary in New York. There are 19 grand children and seven great grand children surviving.   The deceased remained conscious until Monday forenoon when he succumbed to the effects of his fall and in which condition he remained until his death. Prior to his death he gathered together the members of his family representing four generations and had a picture taken. Those represented were E.C. Vining, (the deceased), his daughter, Mrs. Anna Clark, his grand daughter, Mrs. Anna Clark, this city, and Mrs. Ralph Foster, Cleveland, Wallace M. Clark, Dawson City, Alaska, his great grand children, little Edna Clark and Marie Foster.

Jared & Salmon Vining were Pioneer of District (Article in Canadian Baptist in 1913) The Vining Cemetery & the Vining Baptist Church, located on the corner of Concession 5 and the Thorndale side road, received the name from the Vining family who settled in the district in 1822, and who were prominently associated with the early life of the Baptist Church in Western Ontario. The first interment made on the Vining Cemetery was that of Joseph Vining, son of pioneer Elder Salmon Vining who died March 1855 at the age of 16 years and six months, a victim of Typhoid Fever, which was prevalent in the district at that time. The Vining brothers, Jared & Salmon with their wives, who were the daughters of Captain Bodwell, came to West Nissouri in 1822. They were the sons of Ebenezer Vining, a Baptist minister who had charges in the states of New York & Massachusetts and were descendants of two brothers who in the early part of the 17th century left Wincanton, Somersetshire, England and sailed for America.

Jared & Salmon Vining worked side by side in hewing out homes for themselves in West Nissouri and in promoting the welfare of the community. Jared Vining was a tall and commanding in appearance and attracted the attention of all with whom he came in contact. Salmon Vining was a member of the West Nissouri Twp. Council and in this capacity devoted much of his time and effort to the building of good roads throughout the Twp., for which he received no remuneration. He did not neglect his home and on his farm was a small nursery where fruit trees were grown from seed.

Salmon Vining also did missionary work in many parts of Western Ontario, traveling hundreds of miles on horseback. Traveling missionaries sent out by the American Missionary Society held meetings in the Vining neighborhood. Elders Crandall and French, who recognized the oratorical ability of Salmon Vining and also his wide knowledge of the scriptures, urged him to enter the ministry. A service was later held in a barn on the Vining farm and Salmon Vining was ordained as an Elder. He had four appointments in the East and West Nissouri Twps. He organized the West Nissouri Chapel 74 years ago. Elder Vining performed marriage ceremonies in the Counties of Lambton, Middlesex, Oxford, and Perth. A book in which all the marriages solimnized by the Rev. Salmon Vining from 1833 -1844 are recorded, is the possession of a granddaughter of the pioneer.

In this book of nearly a century ago are found records of scores of marriages in tghe pioneer settlements. Another valuable book owned by this pioneer Baptist clergyman, and now in the possession of a relative is a large commentary on the New Testament, edited by Thomas Scott, D.D. and published in 1818 by William Woodward in Philadelphia. In this book are recorded the birthdates of the early settlers.

Rev. Salmon Vining, who was born on Sept. 17, 1791 died in 1879. Jared Vining, brother of Rev. Salmon Vining, who was born in 1789 and died in 1858, was a deacon in the Baptist Church and assisted in the establishment of the Vining Baptist Church in West Nissouri Twp. Prior to the errection of the Baptist Church, services were held in the log schoolhouse on the corner. A singing school was also conducted in this building and the Vining brothers were ever ready to promote the educational interest of the community.

Rev. Andrew J. Vining, formerly of London and prominent clergyman of the Baptist Church, was the grandson of the pioneer missionary Rev. Salmon Vining.

Another article: THE VINING FAMILY
Among the early settlers of Nissouri were the Vinings -two brothers, Jared and Zalmon. These two brothers, like the Scatcherds, settled on adjoining farms. They came from New York State, U. S. Zalmon was a soldier in the war of 1812 and for his services in that war, drew from the United States Government lands, located in Michigan, not many years ago. Notwithstanding this soon after the war they preferred settling in Canada to their own country. They were sons of a Baptist minister. They both married sisters of the late Captain Bodwell, of Dereham. Both they and their wives were of more than ordinary talents. A few years after their settling in Nissouri two missionaries, Elders Maybee and French, were sent to labor in Nissouri by the Christian ladies of the Baptist church in Oxford, who, having no money, paid them with coats, socks, and other home-made clothing. The labors of these missionaries were not vain for the word was blessed and many were awakened and converted and among the converts were Vinings. Though the Christian ladies and the missionaries are long since gone the way of all the earth, yet €œBlessed are the dead which die in the Lord for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them.  A Baptist church was formed in the Vining neighborhood and these brothers were leading spirits in it. The elder brother Jared became the Deacon and Zalmon soon became the minister; he was of more than ordinary talent for preaching. This church has had its difficulties like all other churches. Though these brothers have passed away to their reward, there still remains a Baptist congregation in that locality with a fine brick church; many of the children and grandchildren of the two Vining brothers are members of it.  Hal Gordon Brown (Editor and Publisher) 19 Terrace St., Keene, NH 03431-3210
