Biography* From the HISTORY OF COSHOCTON COUNTY, CHAPTER LXVI, TIVERTON TOWNSHIP. Page 595



"One of the nurseries of the famed Johnny Appleseed was located in Tiverton township. It stood near the north line of lot 36, section 3, a short distance from the Mohican river. Tradition with that it was about one acre in extent, and that in this space Johnny had planted three bushels of apple seeds. While tending this young nursery, he lodged at the house of John Butler, about a mile from the nursery and in Knox county. This was before 1807. The earliest orchards in this vicinity were from this nursery. Isaac Draper had one on the northwest quarter of section 15, and many pioneers from Knox county also had resource here in providing themselves with early fruit trees. A. single tree, the sole survivor of a once large orchard from this nursery, may still be seen on the farm of K. B., Cummings, lot 15, section 3. It measures about twelve feet in circumference and is much broken down. It blossoms every spring, but has not borne fruit for many years."
