Land agent for the Connecticut, Big Beaver, and Union land companies, and founder of Poland, Ohio. Kirtland owned almost 2,000 acres in the township named after him, although he never permanently resided there. Kirtland Township was an "equalizing" township used by the Connecticut Land Company to compensate for losses of those settlers or investors who received swampy or poor land throughout the Reserve.
