Towns and Settlements
For a small county, we’ve sure accumulated plenty of settlements and towns over the years. As you’re reading various historical sources, you may find it helpful to refer to this page for some context about various places you come across.
See also Land Grants, most of which did not receive names. Acknowledgement is given to the David Rumsey map collection, along with the many public maps archives which are linked to below.
So far the place names have been cataloged until about 1920. Research continues, in particular checking these places:
