Biography*   From A brief History of Tuscarawas County, Ohio by Supt. J. M. Richardson.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~barbarar/history.htm

Mineral Point. --Another of the active, energetic and progressive towns of record growth in Tuscarawas County is Mineral City, more generally known as Mineral Point on account of that being the name of the post office. Mineral City was laid out by Alfred DAVIS and George LECHNER in 1853. The original plat consisted of forty lots of various dimensions, located between Huff's Run and the Cleveland and Pittsburgh Railroad. Additions to the original plat have been made by DAVIS and LECHNER, DAVIS and MCGREW, Ferdinand BRINKMAN, Philip BLACK, Thomas MCCREARY, John DEIRINGER, Wesley M. TRACY, C. E. HOLDEN and M. D. SKEELS. 
Note   After getting conflicting information from the census on the number of children for George and Matilda, I found this message searchng for George:
