Those Places Thursday - Arad Franklin's Property in 1877

Earlier this week, I posted a transcription of the deed for Arad Franklin's original land purchase in Union County, Ohio, in 1828. According to Arad's obituary, he lived on that property until his death in 1897. Below is a land ownership map of Richwood Township, Union County, Ohio, in 1877. Arad's property is marked with a red arrow; it appears that he had sold a portion (or portions) of the original parcel by 1877. I need to research the records for sales.

The blue arrow marks Franklin Street. I wonder if the street was named for Arad, one of the earliest settlers in the area?
