      About a year ago I transcribed numerous articles on Cuyahoga and Portagecounties, OH, from "Memorial to the Pioneer Women of the Western Reserve"published under the auspices of the Woman's Department of the ClevelandCentennial Commission in 1896, edited by Mrs. Gertrude Van RensselaerWickham. The articles contain many details about the lives of the earlysettlers. NORTHFIELD 1807 - 1850The township of Northfield is about eighteen miles south of Cleveland, and about the same distance from Akron. The name given to the town at an early day was thought to be a very appropriate one, as it was on the extreme north side of Portage County then, and Summit County now.With the Ohio canal and the Valley Railway upon the west, the Cleveland & Pitsburg Railroad upon the east, and the A.B. & C. Electric Railway passing directly through the center of the town, the transportation facilities are all that could be desired.Historians have written that Northfield, for various reasons, was accounted one of the best townships in the Reserve, although not settled at as early a day as some of the neighboring townships.The first white settler was Isaac BACON, a native of Boston, Mass., coming with his family in April 1807, and for three years his was the only white family in town. Mrs. BACON (Nancy CRANMER) was often heard to remark that for six months after their arrival she saw the face of no white woman, save the reflection of her own in some clear pool of water. With this family commences the history of our township.

      Early in the thirties, Mrs. Catherine CRONINGER, a widow, much respected in the community, married Robert McKISSON. She had one daughter, Lucinda. The sad circumstances attending her death, on the night of July 24, 1837, are vividly remembered by many. She was the grandmother of Mayor Robert E. McKISSON, of Cleveland.

      Mrs. Samuel McKISSON (Susanna SHERRARD) was an early resident here.
