obituary-dorwin-higley-1918:

Comment Detail: Source includes date (September 7, 1846) and location (Licking County, Ohio). The text actually identifies the county as Licken. However, I could find no Licken County during Dorwins lifetime, after checking a map of Ohio counties from 1845, 1856, and following a sequence of county formation up to 1888 (all at mapgeeks.org/ohio). Therefore, the text is presumed to be an error and the county is actually Licking, the closest match I could find. (Lucas county is a potential candidate.)
