Deerfield Twp, Hamilton County, Territory Northwest of the Ohio

This extensive township embraced the greater part of the territory now included in Warren County. It was formed under the Territorial laws, by the County Commissioners, about eighteen months after the first settlement at Bedle’s Station. Deerfield, the most important settlement on the Little Miami above Columbia, was the capital and early elections for the Deerfield district were held at the house of David Sutton, in that town. When the people failed to meet and elect a Constable and Assessor, the County Commissioners filled these offices by appointments. On June 10, 1797, the Commissioners appointed Benjamin Stites, Jr., Assessor, and Isaac Lindley, Constable and Collector for Deerfield Township. The tax return that year for the whole township was $111.15. Stites’ fees were $5.50, and Lindley’s $2.30.

Peter Drake was appointed Assessor in 1798, and Joshua Drake, Constable and Collector. In that year, the Assessor was paid $11.21 for his fees, and the Constable and Collector, $4.13.

In 1799, Michael H. Johnson was Assessor; fees, $8.22; William Sears, Constable; fees, $6.19; William Mounts, Collector. Total assessment of the township, $366.22. In the same year, Timothy Boothby was Lister of the
