Local Histories

Land and Property

Land in Warren County was originally surveyed under two different systems. Clear Creak, Deerfield, Franklin Turtlecreek and Wayne townships were surveyed as part of the Symmes Purchase. The Symmes Purchase covered land located between the Miami Rivers (the resulting survey was sometimes referred to as the Miami River Survey or the Survey between the Miamim Rivers) and was surveyed according the Northwest Ordinance of 1785. According to the 1785 act, section one was located in the southeast corner of the township. Section two was then located directly north of section one with section three just north of two and so forth through section six. Section seven was located just west of section one and sections eight through twelve to the north of section seven. Sections were numbered in this manner through section thirty-six, which was located in the northwest section of the township. Meanwhile Hamilton, Harland, Salem, and Washington Townships were originally part of the Virginia Military District lands and divided using Military District numbers. Military Districts were not numbered according to a standard so it will be necessary to locate a plat map of Warren County to locate a specific Military District number.
