"The information for the early histories of the townships was drawn almost exclusively from the History of the Fire Lands, Comprising Huron and Erie Counties, Ohio, by W. W. Williams, 1879. Some information was also used from the History of Huron County, Ohio, by A. J. Baughman, 1909, particularly the 1840 and 1880 Census information for all townships, and information for Clarksfield Township, which in Baughman's book apparently included an extract of a book by Dr. T. E. Weeks on Clarksfield Township, which did not appear in Williams' book.
