An Old Resident Found - A boat resembling a common Durham boat; was sometime since found in the Pymatuning swamp between this place (Mercer) and lake Erie. One end of it was near the surface, and the other was several feet deep in the mud, and a tree about two feet over, growing on top of it. When this boat may have been navigated here no man can tell. The remains on an old fortification are perceptible on the margin of the swamp. - Western Press
