August Imgard

Country of origin: Germany
German settler, August Imgard, was said to have put up the first Christmas tree in Ohio and possibly first in the nation in 1847 ...[as well as] sugar "crooks" (candy canes)
[Also he] had the local tinsmith pound out a metal star for his spruce, where it was placed alongside paper decorations.
From here.
