      Richard Hoskins
      Birth: Oct. 16, 1761, Wales
      Death: Mar. 29, 1834, Delaware County, Ohio, USA

      Richard Hoskins and his family, immigrants from Wales, headed west in 1805 and arrived in Franklinton in December of that year. The following spring, they headed north on the Sandusky Military Road and settled at the mouth of Boke's Creek on the Scioto River. The settlement they founded there was the site of several firsts in the township, including the first log cabin (built by Zachariah Stephens, who died as soon as it was finished), sawmill, and school. Irish immigrants and their families built homes around the Hoskins land. Today there's nothing left of the two-hundred-year-old village.
