At fourteen years of age, he was apprenticed to a cooper. After
he became of age, he was a cooper in Connecticut. He also
taught school and held some township offices. Li 1801, he entered
into the employ of Elijah Boardman, of New Milford, his brother,
and two or three others, who were proprietors of land in the Western
Reserve. He was their general land agent in Boardman, Trum-
bull county, Ohio, ^nd Palmyra, in I'ortage county, and several
other places. He left Connecticut for Boardman, 15 April, 1801,

and arrived there May 1. He had a varied pioneer life, engaged
in selling and superintending the settling and clearing of land.
He superintended the survey and first settlement of Medina, in
Medina county, Ohio. Mr. Boardman heing the principal pro-
prietor of the town, he had experience in "keeping store," —
milling. He had a sawmill in 1814, and continued in that busi-
ness. In 1836, he established a carding, fulling and cloth-dressing
mill. He was also busily engaged in various public interests, in
surveying, care of estates, drawing contracts, &c. He m., 9 Oct.,
1805, Mary Mupert, b. 17 April, 178(3, in Delaware, dau. Jesse
Mupert. He was a (Quaker, from near Philadelphia, who moved,
after the Revolution, to Brownsville, Penn.; and in 1799, with his
son-in-law Josiah Kobbins, to Youngstown. They settled (1800)
in Youngstown, Ohio. Eli held many offices of townships — long
Justice of the Peace; in 1804, Militia Captain, County Commis-
sioner, J^ostmaster. With General Wad8worth,he fixed the seats
of justice when the counties of Stark and Tuscarawas were estab-
lished. He had been a Member of the House of Ohio once, and
Senate three times ; when, in 1822, he was a candidate for Congress,
but lost his election to Elisha Whittlese}" by sixty-six votes, there
being three candidates. He stood highest in Trumbull and Port-
age, second highest in Geauga, and third in Ashtabula. Whittlesey
w^as second in Trumbull and Portage, third in Geauga, and second
in Ashtabula, where a citizen of that county got the highest. It
was singular. Whittlesey was elected without standing highest
in the vote of any of the counties he represented. There were
three other candidates, all together receiving about two-thirds as
many votes as Whittlesey and Baldwin. He was thereafter elected
twice to the House of the State, twice to the Senate. In 1828, was
Associate Judge of Trumbull county ; in 1832, a delegate to the
Baltimore Convention; in Nov., 1832, one of the Presidential
Electors. He in Sept., 1811, shipped cheese to market, and was
perhaps the pioneer in a commerce which has grown to be a large
one in that part of the State where he lived. This sketch is mainly
from a manuscript written in 1836, now in the archives of the
Historical Society, at Cleveland. In 1836, he was the Democratic
candidate for Governor of Ohio, and was defeated bv a small
majority. He d. in Boardman, 3 Dec, 1841, so. quietly that his
wife, rising at four, found him dead at six. His extensive works

carding and clothing works, and had them running When he died;
but his losses, and the times of 1840, badly crippled his estate. His
widow sold her dower for one thousand dollars, and with that
bought a farm, upon which she settled, which is still in the family.
