From "History of the Western Reserve," by Harriet Taylor Upton, H. G. Cutler, Editor of the Lewis Publishing Company; and a staff of Leading Citizens... [The Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago/New York, 1910], Vol. 1, p. 537:
Ashtabula -- Catherine Braddock and Beverly Star.
Andover -- Polly Carpenter and Artemus Smith.
Conneaut -- Aaron Wright and Anna Montgomery.
Colebrook -- Cleora Phillips and Asahael Canfield.
Dorset -- Mr. Griffin of Morgan and "widow of Abitha Sutliff." Women were surely such relics in early days that their own names are not used even after their husbands died.
