Only Colonial Fort in Ohio

It seems hard to believe that there was only one fort in the back country of Ohio during the American revolution. On the hand, since settlers were not "supposed to" be going beyond the boundaries specified at the end of the French-Indian war, any colonial presence there would be a threat both to the native Americans. Colonial Virginia militia went up through Ohio to get to northern British forts.
