I have been the facilitator and organizer for three Ohio Historical Society Markers in southern Delaware County. This one is the the second marker I worked on. It is located in Highbanks Metro
The first one I did was for Williamsville, Anson Williams and the Columbus and Sandusky Turnpike. Anson Williams purchased 1,000 acres in the north west section of Orange Township just south of where Orange Road is now located. He had surveyed an 80 lot village that bordered the Columbus and Sandusky Road. The marker is located at at the entrance to Kingwood Memorial Park. Kingwood is located just about one-half mile south of Orange Road on US 23. The Williamsville Cemetery where Anson Williams, his wife and several of his family and neighbors are buried is located on the east side of US 23 across the road from where the marker is located.
The third marker was dedicated this past May at Liberty Presbyterian Church. It honors Nathan Carpenter the First Colonial Settler in Delaware County. He is buried on the Mary Crest Farm. The obverse side of the marker honors Liberty Presbyterian Church, the First Church founded in Liberty Township in 1810. The Chapel, which is still standing, was built in 1820. There were Goodings who attended the Liberty Church.
