William Henry was a prominent figure in Wooster’s early history as he was both an initial surveyor and served as a judge for the Court of Common Pleas.

William Henry’s obituary in the Wooster Republican listed his numerous positions including judge, businessman, and member of the Christian community.

The Larwill brothers, John Bever, and William Henry laid out the town center and main streets of Wooster in 1808.

Many of Wooster’s streets are named after the early surveyors such as North Grant Street (pictured above), North Bever Street, and West Larwill Street.
