    1819 · Panic! of 1819

    1822 · The Cuyahoga River Bridge

    Age 5

    Both sides of Cleveland, being split by the Cuyahoga River, came together and jointly built a float bridge to help residents pass from one side of the river to the other without having to use a boat.

    1851 · Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad

    Age 34

    The Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad started running in February 1851, 15 years after it was charted for construction. It later absorbed a small bankrupt railroad in 1861 to help expand its services beyond just Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. In May 1868, the railroad merged with the Bellefontaine Railway to connect the current cities with Indianapolis.

    Name Meaning

    English: from a word that originally denoted a wine steward, usually the chief servant of a medieval household, from Norman French butuiller (Old French bouteillier, Latin buticularius, from buticula ‘bottle’). In the large households of royalty and the most powerful nobility, the title came to denote an officer of high rank and responsibility, only nominally concerned with the supply of wine, if at all. As well as being widespread in England, this is also the surname of an important Irish family, descended from Theobald FitzWalter, who was appointed Chief Butler of Ireland by King Henry II in 1177. It is Gaelicized as de Buitléir.

    English: occasionally perhaps an occupational name from Middle English boteler ‘maker of bottles (usually of leather)’, a derivative of Middle English botel, Old French bo(u)teille ‘bottle’ and synonymous with Botelmaker.

    Americanized form of French Bouthillier (see Bouteiller ).
