Abstract:

Consists of business records, government documents, land surveys and field notes, journals and diaries, correspondence, writings, statements, addresses, newspaper clippings, court proceedings, and notes. Many of the documents in the collection are not originals but transcripts collected by John Barr and Charles Whittlesey during the period 1840-1860.

This collection is a remarkably rich resource for the study of the administration, exploration, surveying, and settlement of Northeastern Ohio. Of particular interest are the records of the Connecticut Land Company, which was formed in 1795 to distribute the lands of Connecticut's former western claim, the Western Reserve. An unsuccessful venture, the Connecticut Land Company was dissolved in 1809. The researcher should also note the assortment of land surveys and field notes produced between 1796 and 1808 by the surveyors working for the Connecticut Land Company. Dividing the land into towns (running north/south) and ranges (running east/west), these surveyors mapped and described the territory for prospective buyers. Appendix I provides a key to the sixty-five surveys of the forty-six area townships represented in the collection. An impression of daily life in the Western Reserve can be found in the diaries of surveyors and settlers in Series III, and in the early correspondence in Series IV. More detailed biographical information on settlers like Samuel Huntington, Alfred Kelly, John Walworth, and Lorenzo Carter can be found in Series V (Sub-series D). Especially interesting are the accounts of relations between settlers and Native Americans in the area, as in Quintus Atkins' diaries, and in several of the writings found in Series V (Sub-series A and B). The development of politics, civil institutions, infrastructure, and local communities is also well documented in the collection. Relating specifically to these issues are George Tod's letters concerning Ohio's pending statehood found in Series IV, Gaius Burk's description of early postal routes in Series V (Sub-series A), and the accounts of Alfred Kelly and the Ohio Canal in Series V (Sub-Series B). As for the towns themselves, the researcher will find precise descriptions of life in early Cleveland in Series V (Sub-Series B), and also in Series VII. This miscellaneous material includes land tax records for Cleveland (1807), the records of the first library (1811-1813), abstracts regarding the laying out of Public Square (1814-1857), and the constitution of the Cuyahoga County Historical Society (1858). Information on other nearby towns, such as Newburgh and Tallmadge, are in Series V, Sub-Series C. Finally, extensive information regarding warfare in the area is present in the collection, particularly the War of 1812.
