      (2) Wiseman, C. M. L., Pioneer Period and Pioneer People of Fairfield County, Ohio, Columbus, OH: F. J. Heer Printing Co., 1901, p. 305, 306:

      Isaac Meason, son of Thomas [?] Meason, was born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, November 20, 1773. He married Rached Cherry, daughter of Ralph Cherry and Annie Meek, his wife. She was born June 17, 1774. Ralph Cherry died April 25, 1836.

      Isaac Meason and wife came to Fairfield county, Ohio, in 1799, and settled near the present Summit church in Greenfield, where the Masons still own the land. They were both buried in the Wells graveyard near Hooker.

      They were the parents of nine children: John Meason, son of Isaac was born March 26, 1795; Ralph Meason, was born September 29, 1797, and died November 15, 1799; Hiram Meason was born May 10, 1799, and died June 3, 1802; Jeremiah was born August 1, 1801, and died May 18, 1825, and was buried in the Wells graveyard. Elijah was born March 20, 1804, and died January 31, 1823; Enoch was born August 24, 1806, and died July 28, 1822; Isaac Whatcoat was born February 21, 1809, and died April 25, 1852, and was buried in Wells graveyard. Nancy Miranda was born October 14, 1811; she married Mr. Baxter, moved to Lima, and died there. George Wesley was born April 11, 1814, and died January 16, 1847. . . .

      Isaac Meason was one of the most noted of the pioneers for strength and activity. Few men, if any, among the pioneers could throw him in a wrestling match and only Walter McFarland, his friend and neighbor, could lift a heavier load.

      He once met a famous athletic Indian in a wrestling bout. His friends feared that he had found his match, but he threw him three times in succession. At the raising of Hooker's barn, Walter McFarland carried one of the square plates a few steps, that required six men to lift it and place it upon his shoulders. Such were the amusements of the pioneers. Every neighborhood had its champion.
