Posted by Richard Newton: I found this information on a single typed piece of paper entitled "Scrap Book". I have no idea of who the original author is.
NOTE: I am typing in as found, including typing errors.

Grindal Rawson & Dolly Talcott were born in Massachusetts in the year 1787 & 1792. They were married in Massachusetts in 1811. One child, Mary was born there. When she was five months old they moved to Genesse Co. New York, where they lived about two years. A son, Talcott Rawson was born in 1814. At the time they lived in York State, it was war time, the invasion of the British army and the burning of Buffalo. Grindal Rawson was drafted into the army to help conquer the British, reached the scenes of was in time to see british army leave.

Their stay in Genesse was not long. Malarial diseases were common, some of the family had chills and fever. They made up their minds to go West- somewhere on the Western Reserve. So they started by way of Buffalo, their destination being Cincinnati, on lake Erie, Ashtabula Co. Ohio. They did not stay there very long. They bought a tract of land in Bristol, Trumbul Co. Ohio, (this was about the time that Sweatland took his famous ride in a skiff across Lake Erie after deer). They moved to Bristol but did not like it, for the soil was clay, hard and dry. While living there Laura Rawson was born in 1817. After residing here about two years, they sold out and moved back to Pierfront, Ashtabula Co. Ohio, where Orange Rawson was born in 1819.

They did not live in Pierfront but a short when he took a wagon and oxen, loaded in his family and started for Cleveland, Ohio. They were on the road about two weeks. Roads in those days were scarce and bad. They came by Cincinnati, then up the lake, part of the time on sandy beach and part of the time on the South Ridge road. They did not like the soil around Cleveland, thought it too sandy, so they concluded to go back to Madison where there was a settlement of Massachusetts and Connecticut people. The Kimbuls, Bartrums, Coles, Dows, Balches, Crums, that had preceded them. Arrived there in 1819 or 1820, they caped in wagons for a time, bought 70 acres of land of Adison Kimbuls, and built a log house about 100 feet South and East of the Rawson residence, now standing. George L Rawson was the first child born in the old log house in 1821. On June 26th, 1825 Philander Rawson was born. April 5th, 1827, Mariva Rawson was born. The last one born in the old log house on July 30th, 1829 was Grindal Rawson. On August 16th, 1832 Adeline Rawson was born in the new house or residence on the Rawson farm, she being the youngest of nine children
