 The Founding of Strongsville

In the early 1800's, lands in northeastern Ohio belonging  to the state of Connecticut and called the "Western Reserve" began to attract  emigration from Connecticut, Vermont and other parts of New England. These lands  were sold by the state to the Connecticut Land Company and parceled out among  the members of the organization. Township No. 5, in the 14th range fell to the  ownership of Oliver Ellsworth of Hartford. The land was inherited by his sons, William W. and Henry L. of Windsor & Hartford, Connecticut.

In 1815, the Ellsworths began a correspondence with John Stoughton Strong of Marlboro, Vermont regarding sale of a considerable portion of their Ohio township. Agreements were made to purchase some of the Ellsworth land and to act as an agent for the sale of the balance of the land.

In February 1816, John led a party through New York with a stop in Cleveland. They followed a trail south along the Rocky River to Columbia. From Columbia  they traveled to Township No. 5. They cleared about an acre and built log cabins for shelter. The party included John's oldest son Emory, his brother-in-law, Elijah Lyman, Sr., and Guilford Whitney, a relative of John's wife. Guilford's  21 year old daughter Bernicey served as cook and cabin keeper for the men…….
