Notes for Israel Shrieve LAPPIN:
History of Tuscarawas County, Ohio
Warner, Beers & Co., 1884

JUDGE ISRAEL SHRIEVE LAPPIN, retired farmer, P.O. New Cumberland,
was born May 5, 1801, in Fayette County, Penn.; son of Samuel and Nancy
(Gary) Lappin. Samuel Lappin came with his family to what is now Warren
Township, June 18, 1805, and endured the hardships of pioneer life when
Steubenville was the nearest general market and milling place. The paternal
grandfather of our subject was of Irish extraction, lived in New Jersey and
participated in the Revolutionary struggle. Israel S. was raised on his
father's farm, attended the primitive schools of his day, and, excepting
the time spent in learning the carpenter's trade at Richmond, Ohio, was at
home until his marriage, December 9, 1824, with Miss Sarah, daughter of
John and Mary McGrail, formerly of Westmoreland County, Penn. Mr. Lappin
settled in Warren Township, and has ever since remained its worthy citizen.
His mother died May 29, 1831; his father, October 6, 1832, in his
eighty-seventh year. They were honest, industrious people, and had the
respect of the best society of Tuscarawas County. Israel worked two years
at his trade. He was then a merchant at New Cumberland fourteen years,
after which he returned to the farm. He was twice elected Justice of the
Peace, but was obliged, from pressing business engagements, to resign
during his second term. Without effort on his part, he was elected
Associate Judge of the county, and served fourteen years. He has also been
a Notary Public for fifteen years. To Judge and Mrs. Lappin were born
eleven children, three of whom, Naomi, Adeline and Mary (wife of Daniel
Miller) are deceased; the living are Finley, Ann (widow of Enoch Fribley),
Addison, Silas, Amanda (wife of William Morrison, of Cleveland), Anderson,
Margaret and Hamline C. Mrs. Lappin died September 23, 1872, aged sixty-six
years. She had been an affectionate wife and a wise and loving mother, and
her loss was deeply felt and mourned by her many friends. Judge Lappin is a
Democrat, but retains the privilege of independent thought in political
affairs. He has always been foremost in the support of matters of public
welfare, and is one of the most honored citizens of Tuscarawas County.

Page 666 -Warren Township was formed March 31, 1819, from all that part of
Tuscarawas County included in Township 15, Range 7, and the west half of
Township 14, Range 6. It was thus six miles in width north and south, and
nine in length east and west. This land had previously formed a part of One
Leg Township. When Carroll County was organized in 1832, two-thirds of
Warren Township, as then constituted, became the territory of the new
county, leaving but eighteen square miles of the township in Tuscarawas
County. This tract was too small to maintain an organization, and Warren
must either acquire new territory or be dismembered. Through the efforts of
JUDGE ISRAEL LAPPIN and others, the Commissioners ceded to the shattered
township a strip half a mile in width, two and one-half sections, from the
eastern part of Fairfield, and one and a half sections from the north east
corner of Goshen. The original eighteen sections belong to the seven
ranges; the first survey made in the State, and the four sections,
afterward acquired, form a part of the United Stated Military District
Congress land.

Page 548 Fairfield Township - Savana was the title of a town plat which was
surveyed by Thomas King, surveyor, for Edward Ogden, David McConnell and
Israel S. Lappin, the proprietors, June 12, 1834. It was located west of
the river near the Ohio Canal. The plat contained thirty-nine lots,
regularly and systematically laid out, with streets and alleys intervening,
but it came to naught.

Page 671 - The following Justices have served in Warren Township: Israel S.
Lappin, 1831; Israel Lappin, 1834, resigned 1835;

Page 669, 670 Warren Township - New Cumberland was laid out by Philip Suter
in May, 1826, on the northwest quarter of Section 29. The plat included
thirty-two lots, each three perches in width and twelve in length, sixteen
of them fronting on Main street, which extends east and west, and sixteen
on Cross street, extending north and south. James Meek, in 1841, made an
addition of ten lots east of South Cross street; and, in 1847, John suter
made an addition of twenty lots on East Main street. Shortly before making
the plat Mr. Suter induced SAMUEL LAPPIN, JR., to open a store on the site
of the village. John Black a wagon maker, built the first house, and kept
the first tavern. His residence here, however, was very brief, for the Ohio
Canal, then building through Bolivar, attracted him thither, with the
prospect of more work. ISRAEL S. LAPPIN erected the next dwelling,
designing to follow the avocation of house-carpenter and cabinet-maker. His
brother Samuel, however, dying in 1827, Israel abandoned his craft at the
solicitation of friends and took charge of the store, continuing a merchant
of the little village fourteen years.

  Notes for Hannah MILLS:

MISS SARAH MILLS, New Cumberland, was born May 5, 1814, near
Magnolia, in Carroll County, Ohio, and is a daughter of Hugh and Mary A.
(Hibbet) Downning. They were natives of Virginia, but came to Ohio when
they were young, and were married there in 1813. Theirs was the first
marriage in Stark County. Capt. James Downning, paternal grandfather of our
subject was a famous Indian scout and experienced many narrow escapes. He
was commander in the celebrated fight on the Big Sandy, and took part in
several other sharp skirmishes with the redskins. Her maternal grandfather,
James Hibbet, was the first Justice of the Peace in what was then called
Sandy Township. Mr. Downing died in 1855. Mrs. Downing died in 1881, in her
eighty-seventh year. Our subject was united in marriage, July 8, 1834, with
Jonathan Mills, born October 15, 1813. He was a son of Thomas and Hannah
Mills, natives of Washington County, Penn., and who came at an early day to
this county. Their family numbered twelve children -Hugh; Hannah, wife of
SILAS LAPPIN (deceased); Thomas; Israel; James D.; Dyas M., who was killed
by an Indian in Colorado; Josephine, wife of Hamilton Fry; Margaret,
deceased; William S.; Jonathan, deceased; and Robert L., deceased. Mr.
Mills represented this county in the Legislature in 1855 and 1856, being
elected by the Republican party. He served his constituents faithfully and
well, and remained true to the principle of freedom and justice. He
departed this life November 13, 1869. He had been a pious member of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, and was a local preacher of much ability. He
acquired a large and well improved farm. Two of his sons, Israel and James,
served their country bravely in the late war of the rebellion. Mrs. Mills
still lives on the home place. Her children, grandchildren and
great-grandchildren make a large company. She is a member of the Methodist
Episcopal Church.
