The mid to late 1800's were a time of land speculation and development as the original settlers started dying off and their heirs sold off the land. Western Reserve Lot 65 was settled by Moses and Ebenezer Fish. Lot 75 was mostly owned by Ebenezer Foster and his brother, Daniel C. Foster. Ebenezer's mother was the sister of Moses and Ebenezer Fish. So some form of extended family owned most of the land along Denison Avenue from about W36th eastward to the Cuyahoga River.
