The History of Warren County Ohio
Part IV Township Histories
Deerfield Township by Louis F. Coleman
(Chicago, IL: W. H. Beers Co, 1882; reprint, Mt. Vernon, IN: Windmill Publications, 1992)


The citizens of Deerfield Township have every reason to be proud of their patriotic soldiery, both in the war of 1812 and in the great struggle of 1861 to 1865. At both times our men were in readiness to answer the call of the Government, and, during the years of the contests all her demands were responded to cheerfully and willingly. How much was done by the people of the township can never be known. Tradition is the only source of information as to the soldiers of 1812. We are told that Mason Seward and John Patton were among the first to enlist in our county. Others who followed were Philip Seward, George Cline, Maj. Mason, Caliph Leonard, John Cline, Capt Spencer, Brazilla Clark, James Striker, Richard Cox, Robert Doan, Dick Compton, James Johnson, Patrick Shaw, Byron Williams, John Parkhill, Jedediah Tingle, Sam Harris, James Seward, Joe Coddington, Isaac Coddington, Freeman Coddington, David Briney, Fred Briney, Nicholas Rynearson and several others whose names we are unable to get. Seward, Mason and Spencer held important offices while serving in the war.
