About Oliver Dodge

Oliver Dodge, one of the original pioneer party, came from Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. He owned a share in the Ohio Company, and was, during the war, at Campus Martius. He joined the colony in Adams, in the spring of 1795, and in company with the Coburns, Davises, and others, began to level the heavy forests which then covered the land. He lived one year alone in a large, hollow sycamore tree. In 1800 he married Mrs. Nancy (Devol) Manchester. He left, at his death, a valuable farm to his only son, Richard Hubbard Dodge. Oliver Dodge's only daughter, Mary Manchester, became the wife of the Hon. Perley B. Johnson, M. D., of McConnellsville, who, in 1843-5, represented his district of Congress.
