Amerine Settlement

The first permanent settlement in the Marysville area, was founded
in 1817 by Revolutionary War veteran Abraham Amrine (1761-1849)
and his sons. The Amrines emigrated from Switzerland to Pennsylvania
in the early 1700s and, after living in Belmont County, Ohio for
16 years, Abraham purchased 1000 acres here along Mill Creek
circa 1817, paying $2 an acre. When Paris Township was organized
in 1821, the township officers were elected in Amrine's home on
Newton Pike (now Raymond Road). All seven of his sons, John,
Andrew, Moses, Frederick, Jeremiah, Abraham, Jr., and Henry,
settled here. Andrew was a Justice of the Peace and leader in
the church. Near this site, Henry built a sawmill in 1822 and a
gristmill in 1825, which were operated by the family for more than
50 years.


The Amrine Cemetery holds the remains of the Amrine family, as
well as other pioneer families, including the Reed, Staley, Westlake,
Wolford, and Wood families. Veterans of the Revolutionary War,
the War of 1812, and the Civil War are also buried here. The
Amrine Methodist Church, founded by the family, once stood adjacent
to the cemetery and also served as a school. When closed, it was
sold and moved to a nearby farm. The local militia held musters at
Amrine's mill in the mid-1800s. A covered bridge, circa 1885, built
by Reuben L. Partridge (1823-1900) of Marysville once crossed the
creek on Amrine Mill Road. It was destroyed by an accident in
1938, but the abutments remain.
