Elyria Ohio History
Ohio became a state only in 1803, and there is no census record of the area before 1810 (the 1810 Ohio census was destroyed by fire). Northern Ohio was used as an important hunting and fishing area, but there was no permanent settlement until the late 19th century, when the first settlers from the East entered the area. The Lorain area and its surroundings have been home to all kinds of people for several thousand years. As the county of Loraine was not incorporated in 1824, we cannot see the official records of its history, only the census records.
Cemetery inscriptions from Lorain County, Ohio, are also available at the library and linked to advertisements from gravestones and cemetery records. 929 - 3029 OH3 lists 65 of the 76 smallest cemeteries in the county that do not have a cemetery office on the site.
The library owns the census, which was conducted on microfilm in Lorain, Erie, Huron and Medina counties in the 1920s. It contains and includes data on women from the Western Reserve in the 1840s and 1850s, grouped by township.

The Eries, Heries and Cat Nation people are located in the eastern part of the Great Lakes region of North America.

Before white men entered the country, it was populated by gangs now called Sioux, Cherokee, and Iroquois. While the Kiowa, Comanche, and Native American tribes shared an area in the southern plains, the American Indians in the northwest and southeast were limited to the Indian area that is now Oklahoma.
