The Alta Heiser Collection Index Vol. 4, January 1, 1948 & December 26, 1951. Nancy Ramsey Sutherland was deserving of her husband’s devotion. Her sister Mary Ramsey married Archibald Irwin. Their daughters Jane and Elizabeth Irwin married sons of General William Henry and Anna Symmes Harrison. Through the Irwins, there were relationships with the Smiths, Findlays, Torrences and other prominent Cincinnatians who spoke of John Sutherland as their Scotch cousin. William Irwin, a brother of Archibald Irwin wrote to Cincinnati relatives about moving to Ohio from Pennsylvania and asked about bringing along slaves. His wife was a sister of James Smith, father of C.K. Smith. Whatever may have caused the Irwins to come to Hamilton instead of Cincinnati, they were here in 1819. William Irwin and Mr. John Sutherland formed a partnership in the tanneries near the West End of the new covered bridge. However, the Irwins soon moved to Oxford, Butler County, Ohio.
