Lawrence County, Ohio:
Aid Township Stories and Photos
Aid Township was named by Mr. Haymaker, who wanted a short name as he expected to be Justice of the Peace of it. After the township was organized, he ran for Justice of the Peace and was beaten by Thomas Lambert. He said that if they would elect an old fool that could not write his name instead of an educated man, he would leave the county, and did so.
