Members of The Ohio Company (Many Ohio Shareholders Names!)

Posted: 3 Mar 2004 8:16PM GMT
Classification: Query
MEMBERS OF THE OHIO COMPANY
Following is a list of the member of the Ohio company among whom the lands were divided. There were eight hundred and nineteen shares classified in sixteen agencies; this order has been followed in making the list, the names being alphabetically arranged under each agency. Where an individual owned more than one share the number is given. Where two or more names appear in the same line there was a partnership in the share or shares. The list includes the names of many eminent characters and a very large number which are familiar to residents of Washington county. There are others which will appear strange, even to those persons be acquainted with the settlement of the Ohio company’s purchase. A large proportion of this class belong to individuals who bought shares from purely speculative motives, and never settled in the territory of which they owned a part.

(TRANSCRIBER NOTES: THESE NAMES WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK IN PARAGRAPH FORM. I PAID CLOSE ATTENTION AS TO SEPARATING THE NAMES ON EACH LINE AFTER THE ; . IF NAMES ARE GROUPED TOGETHER WITH A , AFTER THE NAME, THEY WERE IN PARTNERSHIP OF THE SHARES
