16-3-3, Historical Fiction heavily based on historical fact, is the story of the original settlers to Range 16, Township 3, Section 3 of the US Military District in central Ohio. The section, a quarter township, was originally granted by President John Adams to New Jersey Legislator, John Cleve Symmes in April, 1800. Symmes sold the section, the purchaser defaulted, and the land was sold at Sheriff's sale in Franklinton, Ohio (now part of Columbus) in June, 1807. A beggar showed up at the Sheriff's sale and to the amusement of all in attendance, bid on the property and successfully bought it for a quarter of what it was worth. The beggar, who had come from Granville, Ohio for the sale, moved his family onto the section that same summer. From the Sheriff's sale, the story follows the historical record (and sometimes family accounts) of the first settling family and the others who followed and settled in 16-3-3 - Washington's drummer came and settled as a squatter, a hero of the Wyoming, Pennsylvania Massacre came with his son, a young millwright came from Vermont and brought granite millstones with him. Life was not easy on the frontier. The settlers were faced with threats of Indian attack, inclement weather, and great distances to the nearest settlements for provisions. But by 1812, the new community was thriving and the settlers had built themselves a church. When the War of 1812 began, it wasn't long before young men from 16-3-3 left their new homes and signed up to serve with the Ohio Militia. Before the War was over, Washington's drummer had run off to enlist at the age of eighty and one of the young men had been promoted to Captain. 16-3-3, a story of real people who carved out a community on the Ohio frontier, ends with the end of the War of 1812.
