And it would be helpful to know the names of those 17 head of household at least -- did they come before 1803 or after 1803 and from where did they come (PA, TN, RI, ME, VA, where?) 

Ohio was founded 01 Mar 1803 Ohio - HISTORY  "Ohio became a state on March 1, 1803, although no formal declaration was madeuntil 1953, when President Dwight Eisenhower officially signed the documents making it a state, retroactive to the original date.Dec 2, 2009"

Typed in GADDIS on FaG for Ohio, and there is currently a listing of 350 -- with 76 of them born before 1850

I think what is most interesting is the fact that Ohio was not actually signed on as a State of the Union until Pres. Eisenhower signed the papers in 1953 ... and yet that whole time 1803 through 1952 the residents voted in national elections, for instance; civil authorities (city, county, state) issued certificates and licenses and taxed residents and collected fees and assessments ...

Try spelling as GEDDES, too. If they might be connected, most of those that I found in my wonderings came from Pennsylvania.
