Samuel Forrer "holds the distinction of having had the longest association of any individual with the Ohio Canal System. For over fifty years, from the very beginning of Ohio's canals, he was variously engaged as rodman, surveyor, engineer, contractor, and Commissioner" (Frank W. Trevorrow, "Ohio Canal Men: Samuel Forrer," in Ohio's Canals: History, Description, Biography ([Oberlin, OH]: s. n., 1973), 67). Samuel Forrer was particularly involved as engineer of the Miami-Erie Canal for many years.
