Bazaleel INMAN, Parkman, Geauga County, OH
"The farm lying south of that of James Donaldson was settled in 1816
by Bazaleel Inman, brother-in-law of that the DONALDSONS (James &
Samuel). After his death, it was owned by his son, Henry, who built
a frame house, to take the place of the log one. In 1860, he sold
the farm to Joseph B. CROSS, who has owned it since that time.
Powers INMAN, son of Bazaleel, purchased the northern part of the lot
lying east of that of his father, in 1829. It was afterwards owned
by Hiram MOORE, oldest son of Nathaniel MOORE." (Taken from PIONEER
