Daniel Eaton
Youngstown, O., May 17, ae. 84. He was among the pioneer settlers, having removed to Ohio from Pennsylvania in 1803 or 1804. Soon after settling he erected a blast furnace at the mouth of Yellow Creek, near Poland Village. This was the first attempt made to manufacture iron in that section of Ohio, and, we believe, in the state. A few years afterwards he disposed of this establishment, and, in company with his brother James, erected a furnace at the mouth of Mosquito Creek, (now Niles,) which remained in successful operation for a long period of years. He was elected to the Ohio Senate from Trumbull Co. in 1815. He was several times a member of the legislature from Trumbull Co.
