"Ohio’s Westward Expansion Recognizing the work of an early pioneer, county surveyor"


Sharing a link to this insightful story about one of Ohio's early surveyors, David Camp.  It is by Sherri Lee Barnes from "The American Surveyor"

Excerpt:

"As Sandusky County prepares to celebrate its bicentennial, it seems appropriate to reflect on the work of pioneering county surveyors, those who came after federal government surveyors were done “laying out the land” of the Public Land Survey System and after Ohio became a state in 1803. This article focuses on the contribution of David Camp and how his work was essential to the growth and development of northwest Ohio, specifically Sandusky County."
