Among the first settlers in 1820 were Joseph Buchanan and his son Benjamin, then 19 years of age, who with Ansel Cox and Michael Antle pitched their tents on Section 3. The next year Lott Luttrell, Johnson, Shelton and Francis Petree followed and soon Joseph Fanning; after them, William, Robert, James and Russel Tablr, John Sappington, Rice Duncan, Richard Wood, and Andrew and David Samples. The first sermon was preached by Rev. Simeon Buchanan, a Baptist clergyman, at a camp on Section 3 in the fall of 1821, which we judge was the first in the county. The first death was that of Mary, wife of Ansel Cox, June 17th, 1823. the first marriage was John Wiswall to Miss Eda Tabor, in 1825. Rice Duncan taught the first school in 1825. Theophilus Bullard was he first Justice of the Peace, and Joseph Fanning, the first Constable, both elected in the spring of 1827. The surface, except in the northern part, is moderately level, with a rich soil well adapted to farming. It was originally about four-fifths prarie, and contains some of the best farms in the county. Most of the Government land was entered before 1835.
