Nathan Carpenter - Delaware SettlerThis recorded program will tell the story of the wife of Nathan Carpenter, the first white settler in the county, in what is now Liberty Township.

Sherry Carmichael will portray Irena Carpenter, who came here with her husband in 1801. She will present a woman’s perspective of coming to the wilderness of the Ohio Territory.

Working with the Powell-Liberty Historical Society, Sherry has created the video and will be on hand to answer questions.
