: Two photographs of the Johnny Appleseed monument near Dexter City in Noble County, Ohio were taken in the 1960s. The monument is constructed of stones donated by people in areas where John Chapman is believed to have planted apple seeds. The photographs measure 2.75" x 2.75" (6.99 x 6.99 cm). John Chapman (1774-1836), also known as "Johnny Appleseed," was born in Massachusetts and planted his first apple seeds in western Pennsylvania around 1798. He then began traveling throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania planting apple seeds and helping settlers establish orchards. Chapman was a follower of Emanuel Swedenborg, a Swedish scientist and theologian, and shared his religious views along with his apple seeds. He died in Fort Wayne, Indiana. View on Ohio Memory.
