Land Owners on the Muskingum

First Ownership of Ohio Lands

While the first sale of lots was in progress at New York, the agents and directors of the Ohio Company of Associates were negotiating with the Committee of Congress for the purchase of the tract of land on the Muskingum River, west of the seventh range of townships. Papers were signed for this purchase, and for the Scioto River tract, on the 27th of October, 1787, and title to the property passed from the United States on that date. Prior to this date the Ohio Company had arranged to apportion the lands of their purchase among the proprietor-shareholders of the company, in number about a thousand, one numbered subdivision in each allotment for each share. Plans were formed at a series of meetings, beginning August 29, 1787, and extending beyond the date of signature to July 7, 1788, for the distribution of these shares of the lands to the proprietors by a method of drafts, the details of which appear in the form of resolutions entered in the manuscript minutes of the Ohio company. 99

First Ownership of Ohio Lands

Lists of the drafts kept by Col. May furnish means of obtaining the names of the proprietors of the Ohio Company, owners of lands on the Muskingum River, 1788-1792. 100 They present the drafts by name and number of the proprietor, the agency from which the shares were obtained, and the various numbers of the lots drawn against each name. An early list, dated 1788, gives names about in order of the alphabet, but a later list, 1796, 101 gives data from which corrections may be made, showing changes of residence, assignments of title, forfeitures, etc. A list, constructed from these sources follows, giving names of proprietors, residence, agency and number of shares held, 102 the corrections taken from the attested copy being inserted in each case in brackets.
