John McDougall1

b. 18 May 1777, d. 1824
     John McDougall was born on 18 May 1777 in Dumbarton, Scotland.1 He was the son of David McDougall and Ann (?) John McDougall married Margaret Stockton, daughter of David Stockton and Ann (?), on 12 November 1799 in Northwest Territory, now Ohio.2,3,1 John McDougall died in 1824 in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana.
     He immigrated , departing from Scotland, arriving before 1799 in Hanover County, Virginia.4 He appeared on the census of 1820 in Chillicothe, Ross County, Ohio.5

Biography: "JOHN McDOUGAL The subject of this sketch, one of the earliest of the pioneer merchants of Chillicothe, was born on the east side of the Blue Ridge, in Virginia, about the year 1777, and emigrating to the Northwest Territory in 1796, settled in Chillicothe, then but just laid out, and the fifth in time of settlement after Marietta, which was the first permanent settlement within the boundaries of Ohio.

Of his life, previous to his emigration, there seems to be no record, but the fact itself is an honorable one. A youth of nineteen starting out into a wilderness, "with a heart for any fate," challenges a respect and admiration which few can withhold.

The first business announcement of this adventurous youth, places him before the Chillicothe public as a competitor for patronage, under the character of a "trapper and licensed trader." From some of his early advertisements, published at Wheeling, before Chillicothe could boast that modern enginery of universal enlightenment, a printing press, we learn that he was "prepared to furnish the very best whiskey, and other things required." It is to be hoped the stock in trade not enumerated, was of a description worthier to head the list. Justice requires us, however, to remark that eighty-three years ago, public sentiment did not prohibit the sale of whiskey and wholesome articles over the same counter. Still later, his place of business was above the corner of Mulberry and Water streets, in connection with Dr. Buell, where he sold "goods;" which fact, as evidence of a radical reform, is very gratifying; as, in that case, the doctor dispensed medicines unadulterated by even the "very best whiskey." In another advertisement, several years subsequent to the above, we discover still further evidence of a disposition to undo the evil of the past. Here he speaks of himself as especially interested in the education of the young; "in which to assist them, he has a fine collection of school books."

It may interest some to know that his list comprised Dilworth's spelling-book, Murray's grammar, Pike's arithmetic, and the English reader. Knowing that these books, with the addition of the Bible and Shakespeare, had made many finished English scholars, his Scotch-Irish wit never suggested to him the propriety of keeping any others; and the fathers of his time were spared the vexed and vexing questions attending changes in school books. Wars there were, and geographical divisions, and boundary lines were often at the bottom of these contests; but and actual "war of geographies," like that recently waged at the state capital, which left the public schools for weeks without a textbook, simply because there were so many, was reserved for a later generation.

The position occupied by Mr. McDougal, when years had matured the powers foreshadowed by his early enterprise, was such as to leave us in no doubt of the high esteem in which he was held. He was clerk of the Territorial court in the days of Worthington, McArthur and Finley. And when he had, like many of our pioneers, been made the victim of disigning men, moved by the desire to warn others who might come after him, he published, at his own expense, a manual entitled "Every Man his Own Lawyer," designed "to protect his friends and the farming community of this and the surrounding counties, from the rapacity of land sharks, otherwise called lawyers."

The honorable members of the profession, who have no higher opinion of shysters than Mr. McDougal had, will not, of course, consider themselves included in this somewhat bitter arraignment. And though they may consider the accusation too sweeping in its character, yet they will be able to pardon much in one who had doubtless suffered many provocations.

Mr. McDougal's familiarity with judicial proceedings, derived from his position as clerk of the court, rendered him peculiarly competent to perform the task which he undertook. And since the precepts of the Territorial law, with very little variation, were embodied in the laws of the State, as afterward organized, this work may be as useful under the present organization as under the former.

Mr. McDougal was the father of a most remarkable family. One son (David) has achieved distinction as an officer, high in rank in the United States navy. Another (Charles) as army surgeon, during the Florida war, became celebrated for the performance of a difficult surgical operation never before (or since) successfully performed in this country.* Another (John) was governor of California, when the gold fever was at its highest. Still another (George) a romantic adventurer, strayed down the coast from San Francisco, making himself very much at home among all the peoples on his way, and, finally, "turned up" as the chief of a Patagonian tribe.

Robert D. McDougal, the well-known lawyer of Chillicothe, is the son of Thomas McDougal, who was a half-brother of the merchant.

The subject of this too brief and imperfect sketch died in 1821, and was buried in the graveyard donated to the public by his old friend, Nathan Gregg. About the year 1867 his remains were removed to the new cemetery, but no memorial stone yet marks the last resting place of this prominent pioneer merchant of Chillicothe. Would it not reflect credit upon those who now occupy the places won by the indomitable spirits of those rugged days, to raise a monument over the ashes of honest John McDougal?

*He afterward became chief medical purveyor, and is now retired on half-pay."

References to a John McDougal as a pioneer merchant and businessman, sheriff and Ross County clerk for 7 years appear frequently in the Chillicothe newspapers until May 1818 when he announced he was moving to Missouri Territory. Evidently he left his wife and children behind as he went in search of a new home for the family. He was a member of Ohio Legislature.4

FELLOW-CITIZENS OF THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY:
The resignation of the Governor of our State was this day communicated to your respective bodies. Under the requirements of the Constitution, the duties of that office devolve upon the Lieut. Governor. In assuming, therefore, the high and responsible trusts of the Chief Magistrate of our State, I must take occasion to say that I do so with many distrusts of a proper ability to discharge them with that wisdom so essential in our new and anomalous condition; relying, however, upon your characteristic liberality, and that of our fellow-citizens, to regard with an indulgent consideration whatever I may do in my new capacity, I can only give the assurance that in the discharge of my Administrative duties I shall endeavor to be governed and guided by a determination singly to the prosperity and happiness of our people. You have met, gentlemen, under peculiar and extraordinary circumstances. You have assumed upon yourselves an amount of labor, the importance of which cannot be overrated nor too frequently reverted to; and I trust that in all of your Legislative labors, you may be governed by that calmness and consideration so necessary to sound and practical Legislation, giving you insurance of my energetic operation in all matters necessary to further the wishes and interests of a confiding constituency.4
