Hagler, OH – (1814 – present farming town with less residents than in the past)

Classification: small town

Location: Jefferson Township, Fayette County – On Old US Hwy 35 near the intersection of Harmony Rd

Hagler is an unincorporated village. It was first settled by War Of 1812 veteran Captain Isaac Hagler (1792 – 1830) & Susannah (Stookey) Hagler (1793 – 1887). They were farmers & had nine children. Their son Jesse took over the family farm after his father’s untimely death & went on to own over 1,000 acres of land. Farming, cattle, & horse ranching were the main sources of income. Hagler had a post office located on Township Hwy 87 (Inskeep Rd) from 1886 – 1906 & a train station on the the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton Railroad. The Hagler family cemetery is in a field on private property near US Highway 35. There are newer residences in the area & no known remnants of the original town aside from the cemetery.

Yankeetown, OH – (1810s – present farming town with little to no growth)

Classification: small town

Location: Madison Township, Fayette County – On SR 207 at the intersection of Cook – Yankeetown Rd

It was settled in the 1810s by several different families, mostly from the New England States, hence the name Yankeetown. It was never platted or incorporated & didn’t have a post office. The closest railroad was 5 miles north in Mt. Sterling, which had a train station on the B & O Railroad.

The first store was built in Yankeetown in 1815, followed by a church & blacksmith shop in 1823. Many other small businesses operated over the years, but the town didn’t have a lot of them at any given time, so the population always remained stagnant at around 100 or less. Yankeetown Cemetery is in a field down a short gravel road off of Cook – Yankeetown Rd, about 3/4 of a mile southeast of SR 207.
