... THE SCREECH OWL: LIFE HISTORY AND POPULATION ECOLOGY IN NORTHERN OHIO 5 From the beginning of settlement in the Black Swamp (circa 1820), the entire agricultural system revolved around corn. Most of the conversion to agricultural land in northwestern Ohio took place after 1850 and continued until the turn of the century (Kaatz 1953). Within a few decades, the Swamp was transformed into one of the most productive agricultural regions in Ohio. ...
... The Black Swamp, like most dense, unbroken forests, was not rich in wildlife (Kaatz 1953). Information on bird populations is scarce; however, it is almost certain that many of the species common at the time of settlement have been extirpated or greatly reduced in numbers. ...

The Amos Spafford farmstead (33Wo50) of Port Miami in northwest Ohio disappeared from the historical record after the War of 1812. Port Miami, a Franco-American village, was the first U.S. federal customs facility established in Ohio in 1805. It was destroyed in 1812 by a British and Native American detachment led by Captain Peter Latouche Chambers (British 41st Regiment of Foot), the Shawnee leader Tecumseh, and the Wyandot leader Roundhead. Port Miami’s destruction became lost over the years to the historical memory and consciousness of Ohio. Salvage excavations of the Spafford farmstead (1810–1823) in 1977 and its history provide an archaeological window within which to view Port Miami’s obliteration and its recovery to the community heritage of the state.
