      A Capsule History of Terrace Park
      Prehistoric peoples occupied this area thousands of years ago, building a huge earthwork that enclosed some 80 acres between Marietta Avenue and the bluff, and from the river almost to Wooster Pike. Archaeologists date it from some 2,000 years ago, but have no clue as to its purpose. All traces have been long gone, along with some burial mounds that once existed here. But there is evidence that an even more primitive people roamed the Little Miami Valley as much as 12,000 years ago.
      White settlers came here in January of 1789, a band of 45 men, women and children led by Captain Abraham Covalt, a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Most of them established Covalt Station, a fortification at the end of what is now Miami Avenue. Marauding Indians were a constant menace as the settlers strove to establish homes and farms. Records indicate that nine men were killed as they worked in the fields or went hunting in the woods. Four other men were carried off as prisoners and only one was ever heard of again. Covalt Station had to be abandoned one winter because of Indian raids. It took three military expeditions to end the menace and bring peace in 1795. The settlers then scattered and the forts faded away.

      (Research):Joseph Hinkle (H#623) Page 902 Hinkle book born about 1761 at Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania; died March 17, 1793, Covalt Station, now included in the city limits of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio; married about 1777 Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Lydia Cook, daughter of Abel Cook, Sr., born prior to 1761 in Lancaster County; died in Franklin County, Indiana. Six (6) children have been partially identified.
      Joseph Hinkle very probably served in the Revolutionary War and it is claimed he was one of the sons of Anthony Hinkle, III, who did not remove from New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Rowan County, North Carolina, but is said to have removed with his family immediately at the close of the war to Ohio.
      Official Roster of the Revolution buried in Ohio (1929, page 187) included:
      "Joseph Hinkle private, Captain Conrad Karner's Company, Lieutenant Adam Fisher's Regiment, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Militia. Born Lancaster County, Pennsylvania died in Ohio."
      NOTE: He was born at Germantown but resided in Lancaster County at time of enlistment on June 8, 1782 as "Private 5th Class."
      (He was probably the Joseph Hingle noted in the Pennsylvania Archives, Sixth Series, Volume IV, Page 291).
      Grover J. Hinkle of 507 Jefferson Street Valparaiso, Indiana has a very fine record of Joseph Hinkle branch brought down to date which he expects to publish in the very near future. (the compiler)
      The following is quoted from the "History of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Ohio" published in 1894, in part:
      "Captain Abraham Covalt, born in New Jersey, a resident of Bedford County, Pennsylvania, a soldier of the Revolution and one of the leaders of the Miami emigration, purchased lands of Lyman & Stites in 1787 or 1788."
      "January 1, 1789 he left Pennsylvania with his large family and several other families, among whom were Z. (Ziba) Hinkle, Timothy Covalt, and others. In all 45 persons landed a Columbia, Ohio January 19, 1789. Others of this party whose names were mentioned were: Robert McKinley, Jonathan Pitman, John Webb John Hutchins, David Smith, (R) Fletcher, (Levi) Buckingham, (Jacob) Beagle,-----Clemmons,------Coleman, --------Murphy, and -------Gerston.
      "The women and children slept in a tent all that bitterly cold, sleety, and snowy winter, as quickly as possible the men built a fort which was called 'Covalt's Station'. The first mill in Hamilton County was built by on Mill Creek."
      "Young Abraham Covalt of the Captain's family was killed by the Indians in 1789 some miles above Covalt's Station. Abel Cook (probably brother of Lydia Cook Hinkle) was killed at Round Bottom after Harmon's defeat in 1791. Many of this party were with these at this battle when so many of their number were killed, the rest left Covalt's Station and went to Gerard's."
      The following is a quotation from Charles T Greve's "Centennial History of Cincinnati"(Chicago Biographical Publishing Company, two volumes, published in 1904) Vol I page 289, in part:
      "(page 288) Covalt Station---this was in the valley of the Little Miami River about ten (10) miles above Columbia, near the present village of Terrace Park, it was established by Captain Abraham Covalt of New Jersey and a Revolutionary rebel. He left Pennsylvania, his then residence on January 1, 1789 with a party of forty-five.
      "He landed January 19th and built a strong fort, seventeen cabins and a mill. March 17, 1793 while getting timber for his own house, Captain Covalt with his two sons and Joseph Hinkle were attacked by the Indians. Hinkle was killed by the tomahawks and then scalped. Captain Covalt was shot twice, urged his sons to run to the fort saying that he was wounded. He ran one hundred yards holding his axe then fell dead and was scalped." "Mr. Greve cites as authority: Narrative of Captain Covalt's daughter in Dr. Jones's 'Early Days of Cincinnati.'
      Further information of this Indian raid may be found in McBride's Pioneer Biography of Butler County, Ohio. The following quotation sent January 15, 1912 to the Historian by Benjamin D, Hinkle a grandson of Joseph and Lydia (Cook) Hinkle and also on April 11, 1923 by George D. Kinder of Findlay, Ohio a great-grandson of Abel Cook:
      "During the years of 1791-2 the country was all most continually in a state of alarm on account of depredations committed by the Indians. Three men were killed and scalped by them near Covalt's Station, on the Little Miami River, about ten miles from Columbia. They were Covalt, Hinkle and Abel Cook.
      "As soon as the news reached Columbia, a party of which Daniel Doty was one, went to the relief of the station and to bury the murdered men." Mr. Kinder seems of the opinion that the Indian attack was in 1792.
      Mrs. Lydia Cook Hinkle married (2nd) Gabriel Hutchings, a revolutionary soldier of New Jersey, born 1758; died October 31, 1831 at Alquina, Fayette County, Indiana. They had seven (7) children, two sons and five daughters. It is recorded in the Hutchings family record that the mother only on one occasion visited her family in Butler County, Ohio and that she died in Franklin County, Indiana. No date given.
      Lydia Cook Hinkle and Gabriel Hutching had the following children:
      (1) William Hutchings born Butler county, Ohio died 1834 at Alquina, Fayette County, Indian; married Jane McCain. Five (5) children.
      (2) Samuel Hutchings born January 1803; died July 22, 1849, Delaware county, Indiana; married Margaret Stout (daughter of Jaconnah Stout) born February 4, 1803; died May 5 1856. Had fourteen children seven sons and seven daughters.
      (3) Hannah Hutchings married William Perrine.
      (4) Charity Hutchings
      (5) Lois Hutchings married Jacob Peyton of Muncie, Indiana
      (6) Jane Hutchings married Henry Mulkins
      (7) Rachel Hutchings.
      A tradition in both the Hinkle and Hutchings families, claiming Lydia Cook to be a niece of Robert Fulton, inventor of the Steamboat, has never been determined, but because of their respective ages was thought unlikely by the Henkel Family Historian. Robert Fulton, although born 1765 in New York could of course be related to the Cook family of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
