About

The Fremont Journal was established by I. W. Booth on January 27, 1853, in the seat of Sandusky County, Ohio. Said to stand on the side of morality, law, and order, the weekly paper supported Whig interests until 1854 when it began to align itself with the newly organized Republican Party. John Mastin became the proprietor on December 24, 1853, and less than a year later, on May 26, 1854, Isaac M. Keeler purchased one-half interest in the press and paper. The Fremont Journal continued publication under the firm name of Mastin & Keeler until Keeler eventually bought out Mastin's interest on December 1, 1854, to become the sole proprietor and editor.
