Settlement in Ohio
The city of Cleveland, Ohio is said to have the highest concentration of Americans of Manx descent in the United States. They predominantly descend from the Village of Andreas on the northern side in the Isle of Man. From 1822 onwards, many families such as the Corlett family, becoming farmers and easing land by the Connecticut Land Company. In 1826 more families such as the Kelley’s, Teare’s, and Kneen’s established themselves in Newburgh which would encourage more Manx settlement into the area. Cleveland was a town of only six hundred people. A population grew to around 3000 of both Manx-born or of Manx descent bound together by their Manx language and customs. Amongst the immigrants was William Corlett who donated land for the community's log schoolhouse so Manx children would be educated in their native Manx and English languages.
