Sandusky Bay

Sandusky Bay is a bay on Lake Erie in northern Ohio, formed at the mouth of the Sandusky River. It was identified as Lac Sandouské on a 1718 French map, with early variations recorded that suggest the name was derived from Native American languages; the Thomas A. Edison Memorial Bridge was constructed across it in the 20th century to connect highways in Erie and Ottawa counties; the bay was known to historic and ancient indigenous peoples, including the Iroquoian-speaking Wyandot who dominated this area. Located in territory claimed by early French explorers, the bay was identified on a 1718 map by Guillaume Delisle as Lac Sandouské; the Indians of the area Wyandot were said to refer to what is known as the Sandusky River and the bay, as well as the general area, as saundustee, meaning "water" or andusti, "cold water". In his 1734 history of New France, Charlevoix transliterated the word as "Chinouski". Sandusky Bay is identified as "Lac Sandouské" on a 1718 map by Guillaume DeLisle; the name "L. Sandoski" appears on a 1733 map.

Sandusky Bay was called Lac Otsandaské, in another French transliteration of the Wyandot. The Wyandot occupied areas along the river at the Upper and Lower falls. In 1745 Chief Nicolas of the Wyandot allowed the English to establish a trading post on the north shore of the bay, which they called Fort Sandusky and the French knew as Fort Sandoské; this was the first fort built by Europeans in Ohio Country. The bay has been referred to as Lake Junandat and Lake Otsandoské. Lake Sandusky, Sandoski Bay, Sandusky Bay, Sandusky Lake are recorded. French engineer Gaspard-Joseph Chaussegros de Léry passed through this area in 1754, commanding forces to reinforce Fort Detroit at the outbreak of the French and Indian War, he found the ruins of the earlier fort on the north shore of what he referred to as Lac Otsandoské. He had the French Fort Junandat built in 1754 diagonally across from the former Ft. Sandusky. Sandusky Bay is one of the principal bodies of water in northern Ohio, it is situated between Erie and Sandusky counties in the U.

S. is part of Lake Erie. According to Francis Leroy Landacre, it is a "shallow land-locked harbor averaging about twelve feet in depth, some fourteen or fifteen miles in length, with a width of something like two miles." It serves as an entry point for several streams. Sandusky Bay runs from Muddy Creek Bay to Cedar Point; the Sandusky River drains into the bay at its westernmost point. The Thomas A. Edison Memorial Bridge carries Route Route 269 across Sandusky Bay at its eastern end; this is the only direct highway link between Erie counties. Sandusky Bay can be viewed from Marblehead Lighthouse at Marblehead Lighthouse State Park; the Sandusky Bay Water Trail was dedicated on June 2, 2007 to provide recreational opportunities along Sandusky Bay. The water of Sandusky Bay is shallow and clear. According to author Tom Cross, "Sandusky Bay is known for great early spring crappie fishing." On June 14, 2012, the U. S. Customs and Border Protection agency opened Sandusky Bay Station. Samples of water from Sandusky Bay gathered on July 30 and 31, 2012 showed that invasive Asian carp may have reached Lake Erie.

If so, they may adversely affect Lake Erie's $1 billion fishing industry and $10 billion tourism industry. Queen Anne's War.

Tom Smalley

Thomas Smalley known as Tom Smalley, was an English professional footballer who played as a half-back for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Norwich City before the Second World War and for Northampton Town in the post-war period, making a total of over 420 appearances for the three clubs. He made one appearance for England in 1936. Smalley was born at Kinsley, West Yorkshire and after school he worked for the nearby South Kirkby Colliery. Whilst playing for South Kirkby, he was spotted by a scout from Wolverhampton Wanderers who signed him in May 1931. Whilst at South Kirkby he was occasionally called upon to play for Barnsley reserves, but Wolves beat Barnsley to his registration; as a schoolboy he represented the Yorkshire County team. In his final year at South Kirkby he was prolific. At the end of his first season with the Molineux club, Wolves won the Second Division title to return to the First Division after an absence of 26 years. Smalley had a "never-say-die" attitude which brought him to the attention of the England selectors who picked him to play at right-half for the Home Championship against Wales at Ninian Park, Cardiff on 17 October 1936.

England lost the match 2–1, with Wales going on to claim the championship. Smalley helped Wolves reach the runners-up position in the First Division in 1937–38 before being sold to Norwich City for £4,500 in August 1938. In his seven years at Wolves, Smalley made nearly 200 first-team appearances in all competitions. On joining Norwich, Smalley was appointed team captain and was ever-present during the 1938–39 season. Smalley played in the first three matches of the 1939–40 season before the League was abandoned following the outbreak of the Second World War. Smalley remained at the Carrow Road club throughout the war but was transferred in October 1945 to fellow Third Division South club, Northampton Town where he "formed a formidable partnership with Bill Barron as the last outfield line of defence", he remained with "the Cobblers" until 1951 when, in his fortieth year, he dropped out of League football. He had a spell as player-coach at Lower Gornal Athletic before retiring completely.
