    THE TOWN OF HARPERSFIELD

    Electronic text by Marilyn L. Nichols Trumbull, Ohio:

    About 1800 David and Ebenezer Penfield were carrying on a scythe and axe factory near the Centre, using a trip hammer to assist in forging. They finally dropped the scythe business, dissolved partnership, and started two separate shops at the Centre under the names of E. Penfield & Son, and D. Penfield & Son, both firms making axes and doing a general jobbing business, the sons succeeding them. The last Penfield left the business in 185

    The reputation of the Penfield axes extended over Delaware and the adjoining counties, and the makers often shipped axes by the dozen, as the large manufacturers do at present.
