Listed below are those names found in the tax duplicate for 1848, the year Auglaize County was formed from Mercer and Allen counties. Noteworthy is the fact that Jackson Township is included in this list since it was a part of German Township until 1858. From the spelling of the names it is evident changes have been made (then and now) and there are alternatives to seek when one is researching early records for genealogy or otherwise. There are, of course, residents who did not own property.  [from the November 1977 NBHA Newsletter published by Janet Fledderjohn.]
