    Age 19

    Londonderry was laid out in 1831 by Adam Stewart and Nathan Cox. But the latter sold out his interests to Stewart, and removed from the county. The sole proprietor, being an Irishman from county Ulster , chose the name of his native town which is generally abbreviated to " ‘ Derry." When the postoffice was established, about a year after the town came into existence, the previous existence of a Londonderry in north Ohio necessitated a change, and the first postmaster, James Gillespie, was honored in the choice of Gillespieville as the postoffice name. But the name of Londonderry has clung to the town.
