The County of Highland: a History of Highland County, Ohio" By J. W. Klise, A. E. Hough Page 77
In 1800 John Coffey, Lewis Lutteral, Samuel Schooley, Joseph Palmer, James Furry, James Milligan and William Bell came to Greenfield and began house building and other improvements with the view of permanent settlement.
Mr. Bell died the following spring, leaving a wife and six children, three sons and three daughters. The sons all married and remained in Greenfield, and in the course of a few years were the leading business men in the town. Joseph and Charles were the first blacksmiths, and Josiah was the first hatter in the town. They all saved money, and quitting their old industries, engaged in the dry goods business and became the prominent merchants in the town. Joseph removed from Greenfield to Washington, Fayette county, where death found him in 1854.
