Asaph Whittlesey, Late of Tallmadge, Summit Co;, Ohio free pdf Excerpt from Asaph Whittlesey, Late of Tallmadge, Summit Co-, Ohio: Vesta Hart Whittlesey, and Susan Everett Whittlesey, Ne Fitch His father, John Whittlesey, of New Preston, Connecticut, inherited the ancestral name, but did not transmit it in the family- nor did Asaph, as was done by his brother Elisha, and by a branch of the family living in Atwater. In 1793, his father moved to Salisbury, in the same county. He was a lad of remarkable activity, and a fine flow of spirits. As Salisbury was a newly settled township, his opportunities for education were not as good, as for those living in older towns. His physical constitution was a very fine one, capable of great endurance- but by an accident, which occurred just before he became of age, he was injured so as to cripple him for life. An older brother and himself were chopping in a wood, when one of the trees fell upon young Asaph- striking him upon the back of the neck, and crushing him into the ground. For some time it was thought he was dead, and his back broken. This accident so impaired his ability to labor, that it changed the course of his life. He removed to Southington, Connecticut, and entered into a partnership with his brother Chester, in the mercantile business. In November, 1807, he was married, at Southington, to Miss Vesta Hart. In July, 1812, he came to Tallmadge, made a contract for a piece of land at the center, cleared a small part, sowed it to wheat, and then returned to Southington for his family. In the Spring of 1813, he started for Ohio with his wife and two children, in a four-horse wagon, taking the southern route by way of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, a journey at that time full of trials and hardships. War was then raging in the West. Their neighbors looked upon them with forbodeings, that they might be the doomed victims of the tomahawk and scalping knife. In passing "the Narrows," between Pittsburgh and Beaver, their wagon run off a steep bank, and turned completely over, so that the wheels were uppermost. His wife and children were beneath the load. Their groans and stifled cries were growing weaker and more faint, when, by a desperate, almost superhuman effort, he succeeded in raising the wagon and load alone, sufficiently to remove some boxes that lay upon Mrs. Whittlesey. She and the children were rescued, but the injuries received impaired her health, for the remainder of her life. They were detained some days in consequence of this accident, and did not reach Tallmadge till July, where they were received by the inhabitants with great kindness. Mr. Whittlesey was soon after elected Justice of the Peace, an office which he held nearly to the close of his life. In 1814 a Post Office was established in Tallmadge, and he was at once appointed Post Master, a place which he held until his death.
