    “David Copple, Bala Johnson and Adam Keller, who owned land in the vicinity of New Washington, were the first persons who made a successful attempt to found a village” in Washington Township; New Washington was laid out in 1815 with 128 lots, each 90x150 feet. In 1819, Johnson made an addition on the west side of 9 lots. “Bala Johnson came from Kentucky, farmed for a living, and, after a life of much fruitfulness, died near his ideal village.” David Copple came from the Carolinas. David Frazier, a wheelwright and edge-tool-maker, was here before 1820, had a grist mill, later added a sawmill

    Bailey did not die in New Washington.
