Mrs. Rachel Penn, who died in September, 1874, came to this township in November, 1811.

In the notice of the death of this lady the Pioneer Record says:

"She was, at the time of her death, the oldest member of the Methodist church, in Utica. She was born in Maryland, March 16, 1788, and had, therefore, reached the age of eighty-six years and six months. Mrs. Penn was the last survivor of twenty-five adult persons, who came to Ohio together from Maryland, sixty-three years ago. Her brothers Erasmus and Lemuel Jones came in 1813. The house in which Mrs. Penn lived until her death was erected in that year."
