I have recently posted an essay with the above title on the web. In the early 19-th century a number of members of the Fassett family of Vermont came to Licking County. They were children or grandchildren of John Fassett (1743-1803) of Cambridge, Vermont, who was a judge on the Vermont Superior Court during the interval when Vermont was an independent country before being admitted at the fourteenth state of the Union. His son Joseph had a farm in Granville, a daughter, Persis Fassett Follett, had four children living in the Granville/Johnstown area, and she came to live with her children in later life and is buried in Johnstown. Another son, Gen. Elias Fassett, had two sons who settled in Licking County: Elias Fassett settled in Granville and married Jerusha Munson, and Dr. Harry Fassett, physician, settled in Johnstown and married Clarissa Peck.
I have attempted to trace their descendants, many of whom moved a generation later to California to mine for gold or to Texas or Colorado to farm. The most recently deceased Ohio descendant I am aware of, Sarah Fassett Castle, died in Wilmington, Ohio, on April 25, 2004, and the genealogical pages are completed through her death.
