The Youngstown Vindicator answers this question in a large article on pages A-6 and A-7 in the Sunday, July 9, 2000 issue. It explains the history back to the Connecticut Land Co. All of Northeast Ohio was called Connecticut Western Reserve. Eventually there was a dispute over whether Youngstown or Warren would be the county seat. Warren won, Youngstown broke away, and Mahoning County was formed in 1846.
