LUCAS SULLIVANT
Lucas Sullivant was an early settler to Central Ohio and platted Franklinton, Ohio which is the land on the west bank of the Scioto River in what is now Columbus, Ohio.  Lucas left his "footprints" in Scioto Township when he named Boke's Creek after a freed-slave who had become a member of the Sullivant household.
DAVID BLUE
While surveying in Union County, Ohio, David Blue's horse fell through the ice and he got his feet wet.  They named this creek Blue's Creek.  For many years, the creek was known as Little Mill Creek in Scioto Township, but sometime after 1900, came to be known, as it was in Union County, as Blue's Creek.
