p. 180 CHAPTER II...
SETTLEMENT OF THE COUNTY BY THE WHITES...
p. 194 In the same year as given above (1807), settlements were made in Trenton Township... John Culver, Michael Ely and their families were the first settlers north of Culver's Creek, and located in the settlement in 1809.  Shortly after them John Williamson came and bought land of Ely, and during the year married his daughter Rosanna...
p. 587 CHAPTER XXVII.
TRENTON TOWNSHIP...
MANY of our elderly readers will readily remember the time when a large portion of the east half of the county was known as Sunbury Township.  It was the third township created after the organization of the county and dates back to June 16, 1808... it was whittled off... to what is now Trenton Township...
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...
p. 590 But few of the early settlers of the township are still living.  Most of them lie sleeping in the little graveyards. The first birth which occurred was that of Madison Williamson, who was born about the commencement of the war of 1812.  He was a son of John Williamson, an emigrant of 1809, who, in 1810, was married to a Miss Ely, and was the first marriage, probably, to take place in the community.
