2. COL Cornelius Hagerman Forman.
The township, the school district, and the Village all bear his name, since he was the owner of the original townsite. For 15 years he was justice of the peace, in which office, by the exercise of diplomacy, tact and sheer kindness of heart, he made friends of all with whom he came in contact; he had nevertheless a keen sense of justice, and his decisions met with universal approval. He was township supervisor for twelve years and of the village for ten years, and was for over twenty years school clerk.(Submitted on September 8, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
