from FIRELAND PIONEERS by Uriah Hawley;

"Charles Whittlesey, my partner, was born March 12th, 1796, in Stockbridge, Mass., and came to Brownhelm, Ohio, in 1817. He was married June 11th, 1820, to Mary Crocker, of Dover, who died August 2d, 1843, in Ridgeville. He died July 12th, 1852, with a cancer, which commenced in one eye and eat it out, then eat off the nose, and then eat out the other eye so that he was totally blind eight or ten months. The cancer did its work in eighteen years. His extreme sufferings he endured with a Christian patience and fortitude. I might mention other things, but have probably written enough."
