Abstract: Portage County, Ohio, was organized in 1808. Early inhabitants included David Hudson, Turhand Kirtland, Benjamin Tappan, Calvin Austin and Owen Brown, father of the abolitionist John Brown. Hudson and Brown were county commissioners, thus frequent signators to these documents. The collection consists of fifty-seven documents relating to the early administration of the county, including seven booklets of county treasurer's records dated 1810-1818, a tax list, legal agreements, receipts, petitions, bills and land surveys.
