YOGSOH SCIOTO-01: SOUTHERN OHIO TAXPAYERS IN THE 1820s [FOR] SCIOTO, LAWRENCE AND PIKE COUNTIES. By Heritage Research, compiled by Marilyn Adams, 1981, 59 8½" by 11" pages, cardstock cover, wrapper-style, stapled. This index to more than 4,000 taxpayers from these three counties is based on the following tax duplicates. For Scioto County they used 1823: land-tax list and the 1826-28 both land and chattel lists. For Lawrence County they used 1822 land-tax list and the 1828 both land and chattel lists. For Pike County they used the 1823 land-tax list and the 1826 both land and chattel list. Your surname may appear more than once on a list because the author could not determine if,because the name was the same, may not mean the person is the same. [The Scioto County duplicates present a special problem in that the original official sometimes wrote Smith A. John for John A. Smith, but he was not always consistent in that either. Determine surname, then please check both A. John and John A. as it was impossible to determine which order was correct.] There are a lot of names in this book- 25 or more names per column, three columns on a page and 59 pages will give you a good shot at finding out if your ancestor owned any land or chattle (personal property like horses or cattle) anywhere in these three counties. Sample entries in the book are given with an explanation as to their meaning.
Surnames with four (,) or more than four first names (#) are listed here: Adams 9, Allison, Anderson 7, Andre 5, Andrews 7, Armstrong 7, Austin, Baccus, Baker 6, Barber 8, Barger, Barn(e)s 5, Barrett, Beauchamp, B(ec/ee)kman 10, Bennett 24, Blank(e/i)nship 9, Bonser 8, Boswell, Bowen 7, Bower/s 5, Bowman, Boy(n/ing)ton 6, Bradford, Brammer 8, Brewer 6, Briggs 5, Brown 24, Bruce, Brumfield, Bryan 5, Bryant 5, Buck, Bull 5, Bumgarner 7, Burk/e 6, Burner 5, Burris 8, Burt 14, Butcher 5, Campbell 8, Canter 5, Carpenter, Carrol/l/Carrel/l 6, Carter 8, Chaf(f)in 6, Chapman 6, Chenoweth 12, C(e/i)ssna 6, Clark 26, Clay, Clingman 11, Cock(e)rel/l 7, Co(a)l/e 8, Collier 10, Collings, Collins 9.

YOGSOH SCIOTO-10: SCIOTO COUNTY, OHIO, 1880 OHIO CENSUS INDEX. By Mr. & Mrs. Ivan R. Scott. 1975. This index was copied from the film. Some pages of the original census film were not readable and of necessity have been omitted. 74 pages. These names were put in alphabetical order. They share a surname, but are not necessarily related. You will find the surname, the first names, [a column of numbers not identified, might be the microfuilm roll number?] plus the ward or township, and the number of the family (not the page number). Surnames listed here have five (,) or more than five (#) first names listed with them.

YOGSOH SUMMIT-01: GREAT NORTHERN SAVINGS 1984 SOUVENIR PRINTS PACKET. The cover envelope shows 13 scenes from Summit County. Enclosed in this are eight quite-framable reproductions of the area. The eight included in this packet are printed in black ink on white paper. They have a frame, the picture which resembles an engraving or woodcut and a panel across the bottom with an explanation of what is on view in each picture. They are each 8 ½" by 11" in size and could be matted in a 9" by 12" frame. The eight scenes are well done and clean. 1.) is of Bronson Memorial Church overlooking Peninsula Village. Bronson Memorial Church sits quietly beside Ohio Rt. 303 in the historic village of Peninsula. The "carpenter gothic" structure, built in 1839, has a wood paneled interior, candle chandelier, pot-bellied stove and old reed organ. Owned and operated by the Summit County Historical Society, it is used for weddings and other religious services. 2.) Everett Covered Bridge of Bygone Days. Spanning Furnace Run near its confluence with the Cuyahoga River was the last covered bridge in Summit County. Built in 1857, it was a favorite place for artists and photographers until washed out by a storm in 1975. Plans are being made to restore it. 3.) Maple Syrup Time at Hale Farm. Warm days and cold nights bring on the flow of maple sap. At Hale's Farm's sugar bush the sap is gathered and evaporated much as it was done in the early days by Hale family members. It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. 4.) Frazee-Hynton House in Valley View. Built in the 1820s, the handsome red brick Frazee-Hynton house on a hill overlooking the canal was one of the earliest structures in the Cuyahoga Valley. In its day it witnessed both stagecoach and canal traffic. The house has been restored as a local landmark.
6.) Cuyahoga Valley Line Train Passes National Park Offices. Explore the valley on Saturdays from June to October on the historic steam train that runs from Cleveland to Akron. Here it's passing the old mill tyown of Jaite, former company store and worker's houses have been restored and are now headquarters of the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area.
6.) Harvest Festival Time at Hale Homestead. October in the Cuyahoga Valley is truly a spectacle of colors. It is the time for shocking corn and harvesting fat pumpkins. Hale Farm and Village celebrates the season with a harvest festival in which the smell of hearth-baked Johnny cake and beef stew adds to the authentic nineteenth century atmosphere and one can observe many of the askills and recreational activities of pioneer settlers. 7.) Restored Locktender's House at Twelve-Mile lock. On Canal Road near the north end of the park the locktender's house is bing restored. Here' tradition has it, lived the locktender who operated and maintained the adjacent Twelve-Mile Lock. Eventually this building will house the National Parki Services Nuseum of the Ohio and Erie Canal, remains of which comprise one of the park's most important historic resources. 8.) Deep Lock on the Ohio and Erie Canal. This lock, the deepest of 42 on the Old Canal between Cleveland and Akron, raised canal boats 17 feet. Both the lock and nearby abandoned sandstone quarries are included in the Akron Metropolitan Park System. Complete set of eight prints. [Would make a lovely set as a gift for a teenager with ancestors from Summit County to color with a set of colored pencils to remind them of their Heritage and a few visits to the area to see these attractions would be good too! Would also be quite nice framed in a school, lawyer or doctor's Office to show local pride. Would be nice in the Main Lobby of the Courthouse, also. PRICE: $20

Bath Township, Copley Township, Norton Township. 104 pages, punched for a three ring binder but stapled together with cardstock covers. There is no way to tell how many burials for each surname appear on any one page of any one volume.

FFOH TRUMBULL-02 - TRUMBULL COUNTY, OHIO: D145. THE BOOK OF WARREN. Written and compiled by L. C. Vinson. Compliments of McCluer Lumber Company. This little book is 5.5 by 8.5 inches, worn and missing the back cover. Spine is ragged and torn in places, but contents are tight and hold together well. Map is well drawn in pencil on inside front cover. This is one of those souvenir booklets put out by a businessman in the town as a public service. This book is full of pictures, photographs of people, places and things that are important to this town and its people. There are a lot of ads, a lot of history of the town, well written, and the photographs are well done.
The history of the town of Warren started in 1795 when the state of Connecticut sold to the Connecticut Land Company 3,000,000 acres of land in what has been known as the "Western Reserve" for the princely sum of $1, 250,000. In 1796 that company sent Gen. Moses Cleaveland with a large party of engineers to survey their purchase prior to its sale. Moses Warren, one of the party, was assigned to the task of platting Trumbull County and adjoining territory, and laid out the town of Warren. After the survey was finished, General Simon Perkins was sent out to handle the sale of a large portion of the land now comprising the town of Warren, and he became one of the most prominent figures in the life of the community. The first public school was organized in 1802. It was taught by John Leavitt-the founder of Leavittsburg. The first regularly organized church was started on the Sunday of September 3, and held services regularly ever since, at least until the time of the publication of this book in 1920. There are hundreds of names in this booklet! No index! PRICE: $8.
FFOH TRUMBULL-03: HISTORY OF HARTFORD TOWNSHIP, TRUMBULL COUNTY, OHIO. [TYPED MANUSCRIPT, unedited] By Clara Hart Mizner. 1873. Photocopy of a typed history. Begins with a photocopied map of Trumbull County, Ohio, 1898. Scale is 3½ miles to the inch. Hartford is the middle township of five on the east side of Trumbull County, south of Kinsman Twp. and Vernon Twp., north of Brookfield Twp. and Hubbard Twp. Just east of Fowler Twp.
A description of the beginning of the white man's adventure in this New World that became America, we come to 1799. Three young men from Hartford, Connecticut started westward and stopped in what is now Hartford Twp., Ohio. Howard Brockway cut the first tree. The other two young men were Isaac Jones and Ashel Brainard. They built a cabin, cleared a tract, planted wheat. Jones and Brookway returned to Connecticut to bring their families back. Isaac Jones settled in what is now "old Burg Hill". He had married Chloe Brainard. Ashel Brainard settled on land east of what is called "Brockway Hill' on land later owned by Jacob Kepner. Asa Andrews bought 1,000 acres, surveyed by Holmes and Root, in what is now the State Line Road, selling some to Robert McFarland. In 1804 and 1805, the following families came from Hartford, Connecticut: Richard Hayes, Thomas Bushnell, Andrew Bushnell, Ashel Borden, Ashel Borden, Jr., Samuel Tuttle, Capt. Alexander Bushnell, Shaler Fitch, Elam Jones and William Tathbun. In 1806, the area around Weldon was settled by John Kepner and Isaac Pfoutz. The story was told of the Indians coming by, who were given some lard and sausage, and every year came back for more. Titus Broadway settled south of the center on land owned by Holmes Brockway. Daniel Bushnell and Capt. Thomas Thompson came from Farmington, CT and bought 500 acres southeast of the center. Charles Merry, Samuel Spencer and Gad Hart came and settled east of the center. Spencer, going north of the center. First school was erected in 1804. By 1802 they were planning a Congregational Church. They named the place Hartford after the capital of Connecticut. All of the above is found on the first two pages of this 17-page history. This article was not indexed, but I did a complete name and place index, but this newsletter could not handle the two-column format, I did place a copy of the index with the book. PRICE: $15
