Abigail Mathews Bailey was born in October of 1802. For her birth place, I selected Washington County, Northwest Territory, United States. She was actually born in the town of Springfield which had been platted by her father, Rufus Putnam, and Levi Whipple in 1801. Unknown to the founders, there was already another town by this name, but their town was not renamed Putnam until 1814.
In 1803, Springfield Township was formed. In January of 1804, Muskingum County was formed - but not effective until January, 1805.
I was going to add Levi Whipple's son today but the birth place choices gave me pause.
"The First Child Born in Springfield township is supposed to have been Warner Whipple, in 1803." Direct quote from History of Muskingum County, Ohio With Illustrations and Biographical Sketches of Prominent Men And Pioneers, J.F. Everhart & Co., 1882.
Technically Warner Whipple was born in Springfield, Springfield Township, Washington County, Ohio. A genealogy tree on FamilySearch shows his birth date as July 2, 1804. This is before Muskingum was effective.
My only choice from the list is Putnam, Springfield Township, Muskingum County, Ohio which I feel is incorrect. Since I'm unsure how to record his birth place, I didn't add his profile.
