Walnut Creek Township, OH - Stutzman's Crossing, Peace Bridge - Walnut Creek's first permanent settler was Jonas Stutzman (1788 – 1871), who traveled here from Somerset County, Pa., in 1809 to clear land for farming and build a log home for his family. He was the first permanent settler in the eastern portion of what would become Holmes County. Jonas and his wife, Magdalena Gerber Stutzman, were of the Amish faith – descendants from a group of strict Protestant Anabaptists. Ohio’s newest covered bridge over the Walnut Creek has been named Stutzman Crossing in honor of Jonas Stutzman.
