1804 Ashtabula County Area Tax List

According to an Ashtabula Chamber of Commerce history, the first settler in what would become Ashtabula County was one Thomas Hamilton, who in 1801 built a log cabin at the mouth of the Ashtabula River. By 1804, as shown by this tax list, more than 70 men -- many with families -- had moved into the area. Ashtabula County became an official entity in 1808, created from its parent counties of Geauga and Trumbull.

Note: Salem Township no longer exists; it was renamed Conneaut in 1833.
