_________________________________________________________________________ From: Joanne Scobee Morgan Date: Mon, 28 Dec 1998 My mother-in-law, who was from Camden Co., MO., died just prior to Thanksgiving, leaving me all her genealogy books. Also, this. I don't know where she got it...sounds like a newspaper article. (She was related to the Popes, Selbys and Parrishes, as you will be able to tell. "A number of mounds by Prehistoric race was found near Chauncey Post office. Lover's Leap -The chief of Osage Indians "Okema" fell in love with Winona, but she had a lover, Minetus, to which she had pledged her hand, so she rejected Okema. He chased her to what is now Lover's Leap, and to escape capture, Winona jumped from the precipice and died." The first permanent settlers were Reuben BERRY and William POQUE, settling in 1827. Mr. Berry on the Dry Auglaize, and Poque on the Osage, and Thomas H. PARRISH on the Dry Auglaize, all from Kentucky. William A. POPE was appointed assessor of revenues for the county for the year of 1841. Linn Creek was organized in 1845. The county seat was transferred from Erie to Linn Creek, November 15, 1850. June 1867 at the June term of the court Thomas SELBY was appointed Superintendent of the court house. On May 10, 1867 the court made an order appropriating $6500 with which to build a court house on the public square in Linn Creek. Thomas SELBY served as County court clerk from 1868 to 1870, as Prosecuting Attorney from 1873 to 1875, and again from 1879 to 1881. The population of the county in 1850, 2338 white and colored, 1860 (4975) 4769 white and 206 colored, 1870 (6108) 5959 white and 149 colored, 1880 (9266) 7152 white and 114 colored. County was coorganized in 1841. First grand jury for the county in 1841, was impanelled band sworn. The names of the panel were Green WOODS, foreman: William C. MCGEE, William OWENS, Ousley CLIBURN, James MARLOW, Isaac H. PARRISH, William NORTHRUP, Samson W. WILXON, Daniel MERIDITH, John D. DEAN, George SHUMATE, Levic C. FULBRIGHT, Thomas PARRISH, Thomas HART, and Berry T. BENTON. Fifteen good and lawful men in legal parlance. _________________________________________________________________________ From: Joanne Scobee Morgan Date: Sat, 02 Jan 1999 I also found this in my mother-in-law's things.
