Age 3

"By 1803, when the general reconstruction of the old and the creation of the new townships occurred, it was thought well to provide such a municipality for the Congressional division of the territory of Hamilton; and the township of Whitewater was set off, ""to include all that part of Hamilton county west of the Great Miami river."" The voters thereof were instructed to meet at the house of John BENEFIELD, and elect three justices of the peace. This was, like most of the early townships, a large one. It comprised the entire tract now occupied by Whitewater, Crosby, and Harrison townships, and covering not less than sixty square miles."
