Amanda Township of Hancock County in 1875, from Bobby Brown. There is an Amanda Township in Fairfield County too. I wonder if the first wasn't named after the second, and who named it. J. Brown can be found down on the southern border, Wm. Corbin a little below the center, E. Vanlue next door to him, E. Corbin down in the southwest, and a couple other Corbins up top.

Vanlue, Amanda Twp. OH. S. Brown is listed at the bottom as a school teacher. Union School is up between lots 43 and 44; Arthur Brown was owner of lot 44 when he died in about 1864, as well as of lot 7. One of the buildings in lot 7 is labeled "Brown", and lot 7 is also the location of the drugstore that Arthur bought. It's also worth noting that Abraham Browne was a doctor in this town in those years.
