History of Elected Officials
Suffield was founded in 1802 as Peasetown. On April 6, 1818, residents met and changed the name to Suffield Township and elected three trustees and one township clerk. Records from then until the later 1800's were sketchy and nearly impossible to find. From at least 1868 to 1896, trustees, clerks, treasurers and constables were elected, usually in March, for one year terms that began in April. In 1886, the term of office for trustee changed to three years, but other elected offices remained a one-year term. At some point, perhaps 1922, the trustee terms went to four years, and the clerk's terms have followed suit.
See the link below for a list of Suffield's trustees and clerks over the years. Every attempt has been made to make this a complete list, but trustee minutes books are missing, age to the existing documents have faded the handwritten pages to where they cannot be accurately read, the Portage County Board of Elections suffered a flood in 1951 and all records prior to then were discarded, the local newspapers printed election results for the large cities and the both the Ohio Secretary of State and the State Board of Elections are clueless to finding historical election facts.
If you have a trustee or clerk in your family tree, we are looking for photos. We will scan them and return the original to you. Thanks
