The Alta Heiser Collection Index Vol. 3, January 1, 1944 & December 18, 1947. Prominent men, as optimistic as they were, were perfectly willing to go their security only to find themselves involved in financial problems. Some of these were Major William Ruffin, one of the first proprietors of Rossville, Butler County, Ohio, William Irwin who in the teens of the 1800’s had a tannery at the river end of Rossville’s Main Street in partnership with John Sutherland, and Joseph Hough, a contemporary pioneer merchant and nephew of J.N.C. Schenck, the Warren County, financier. The original Nicholas Longworth, and the young attorney, Salmon P. Chase, were interested in several of the judgments against Mr. John Sutherland.
