Elizabeth Township was formed in July 1807. It borders
Clark County on the east. The Great Miami River flows through the township.
No actual settlement was made within the township until 1800. Michael Carver
moved from Staunton Township and purchased a half-section of land from
John Cleves Symmes at a rate of $2.50 per acre. Benjamin and Christopher
Knoop also established settlements during the same time period.
