p. 589 The first settlement made north of Culver's Creek was by John Culver and Michael Ely.  They are noticed among the arrivals of 1809.  Not long after them came John Williamson and bought land from Ely.  He was a bachelor when he came to the settlement, but, sometime during the year 1810, he married Ely's daughter, Rosanna.  Their son, Madison Williamson, is reported as the first birth in the township...
