    • This township is one of the northern tier and lies just east of Mississinawa. It was taken from Brown township in March, 1839, and containd all of townships 14 and 15 north, range 2 east, except one tier of sections from the eastern part of each. It was reduced to its present size in 1848, when township 15 was thrown into Mercer county, and now contains thirty sections of land. It is drained. mainly by the upper Wabash and the head of the north branch of the Stillwater. The former enters the township near the extreme northwest corner and runs southeastward to the southeast quarter of section 15, thence northeastward to the southeast quarter of section 11, where it crosses the Wabash township line. The Stillwater rises in the southwest corner of section. 17, near school No. 4, flows southeastward to southeast quarter of section 26, thence southward and crosses the Brown township line near the center of the south line of section 35. The water shed between the Wabash and Miami liasins traverses this township, and the surface is generally rolling with occasional hills along the streams. The uplands contain much clay, while the bottoms are of a rich dark soil. There was much fine hard timber in this section which was cut off to a large extent later than that in the sections further south.

    Notes 
    • Currently no land records have been found for Jacob Shire in Darke County, Ohio. The 1850 census shows his family enumerated between the families of James Bayman and Abraham Byrd. It is possible that Jacob's family lived on the land owned by one of these two men. Perhaps rented from them or worked the land in exchange for housing.

    • Extracted from: http://dcoweb.org/church/OldChapel.htm

      Darke County deed records confirm this history of the Old Chapel. Jonathan Byrd, brother of Magdalena Huddle, was one of the two trustees of the United Brethren Church listed in the June 14, 1851 deed for the land on which the Old Chapel was built (Darke County Deed Book W-1 Page 338). "Know all men by these presents that Zachariah Marker of the County of Darke and in consideration of five dollars in hand paid by Jacob Shire and Jonathan Byrd, as Trustees of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, hath bargained and sold and doth herby grant, bargain, sell, and convey unto the said Jacob Shire & Jonathan Bird as such trustees and to their associates and successors in office, forever, for the use of the said church, the following premises. Situate in said county of Darke and described as follows: a part of the south half of the southwest quarter of the SE quarter of Section No. thirty six (36) of Township eleven (11), Range three (3) E, beginning on the Township line between Adams & Wayne at the corner of the road leading from Ithaca to Jacksonville. Then east five rods, thence north five rods, thence west then rods, thence south five rods, thence east five rods to the beginning, making fifty square rods. To have and hold the said premises with the appurtenances unto the said trustees, their associates and successors in office forever, for the use and benefit of the said Church of the United Brethren in Christ." James Bayman and Levi Huddle were both involved in the sale of the land after the Old Chapel was abandoned. On March 9, 1876, "George Sellers, James Bayman, and David Warvel, Trustees of the United Brethren Church in Christ called the Bethel Chapel" sold the land to Levi Huddle for $21 (Darke County Deed Book 71 Page 282).
