Perhaps a search of WILEY posts on the Quaker-Roots archives
would show someone already answered this question. Nonetheless, let me
give you my non-genealogical perspective:
Clinton County, Ohio had Quakers resident even before it was
carved out of adjoining counties in 1803. Miami MM in Warren County to
the west set off Center MM (with Caesars Creek PM), and Center
Particular Meeting met about two miles west of Wilmington. The early
Wilmington PM and Dover PM were under Center MM. Fairfield MM (and
later Quarterly Meeting) in Highland County to the southeast set off
meetings in southern Clinton County.
Here is a link to every Monthly Meeting that had its last meeting place
in Clinton County (17 in all, but some much later than 1820):

So far as I know, Hinshaw Volume V included genealogical information for
every Clinton County monthly meeting that existed in the 1800s.

Subject: [Q-R] WILMINGTON OH
I am looking for some help in locating a g-grandfather's marriage. I
believe he was living in the Wilmington area in 1820s. His father, Allen
and Sarah Wiley were Quakers and owned land in Clinton Cty. I have
never been able to find the marriage of their son Joseph Wiley and Mary.
He was born 1811 in PA.
The family moved to Belmont Cty OH sometime after 1816?
Then moved onto Clinton Cty about 1820.
Then Joseph ends up in 1870 in Hamilton Cty OH, per census. Those
in-between years are lost. If anyone can help or guide me in the right
direction in my research I would really appreciate the help.
