The area on the east and south labeled 11 was ceded by the Treaty of Greenville in 1795. The two areas on top labeled 53 and 54 were ceded in 1805 with the Treaty of Fort Industry

The Treaty of Fort Industry was a successor treaty to the Treaty of Greenville, which moved the eastern boundary of Indian lands in northern Ohio from the Tuscarawas River and Cuyahoga River westward to a line 120 miles west of the Pennsylvania boundary, which coincided with the western boundary of the Firelands of the Connecticut Western Reserve.[1] In return, the United States agreed “every year forever hereafter, at Detroit, or some other convenient place” to pay $825 for the ceded lands south of the 41st degree of north latitude, and an additional $175 for the Firelands, which lie north of 41 degrees north, which the President would secure from the Connecticut Land Company, for a total of annuity $1000.00, to be “divided between said nations, from time to time, in such proportions as said nations, with the approbation of the President, shall agree.“[2]
