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 First Sunday of September, the 3rd, and has 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 3 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 went away, but every year they came back for more. [Thought they were getting paid rent or blackmail not to attack?  Well, it worked, whichever it was!] 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.  It needs, but does not have an index, so I have decided to properly index it for the buyer and for your information.  The numbers behind the name are the page numbers in the booklet on which that name is found.  RESEARCH  MONOGRAPH:  PRICE: $2 FOR THE FIRST PAGE ORDERED (COVER INCLUDED. NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.) 50 EACH ADDITIONAL PAGE.  WHOLE BOOKLET $8.

2009 Patricia A. Gooldy  I am so sorry about this, but I had this arranged in a standard two-column format, but the Constant Contact Services Provider said the HTML couldn't handle that, so this is the best I could do without doing the entire nelwsletter over in a different format.  Since it was already 6:30, I haven't had dinner yet, and I am hungry; I hope you can figure it out.  Thanks for understanding that you don't work with tecnology, you simply cope with it.

Every time I talk myself into doing an index, I am continually amazed at the amount of time and care it takes to do one.  There were just too many names to NOT do it!  I do not believe this was ever finished, never mind published, but it was so nice of her to send it to a fellow genealogist..
