denburg and Thomas Glenn, for George Tyler and Charles Atkinson, the
one for Atkinson being a double log house, one-half being used for a store
and the other for a dwelling both of which buildings can be seen to-day
in a somewhat dilapidated condition. In the Fall of 1836, came a colony
from New York, and stopped at the tavern of George Brandenburg, who
with the other settlers of Hanna Township, went with them and helped
them to erect their log cabins, which was the beginning of the city of
Geneseo, and which colony came to Dayton for their mail for some time
.afterward. In this year William Paddleford bought land, and in the Fall
of 1837, moved on it with his family, where he resided until 1838, when
he moved on the farm now occupied by his son, James Paddleford, where
Mrs. Paddleford still resides, in the 90th year of her age. The first
frame buildings in the county were built at Cleveland, by Atkinson and
Wells, in 1836, which can still be seen on the farm of John S. Hanna, in
the village of Cleveland.

In 1836 a temperance meeting was held in the double log house of



HISTORY OF HENRY COUNTY. 561

Charles Atkinson, in Cleveland, by the settlers and people from the
Geneseo Colony, and a society organized, it being the first ever held in
Henry County. In this same building was held the Presidential election,
in 1836, for Martin Van Buren, President, and R. M. Johnson, Vice-
President it being the first Presidential election ever held in the
county. Whiteside County being in this precinct, the vote of that county
was polled here with Henry. In this election there were 72 votes
polled, three of which were democratic those three were Thomas Glenn,
Dr. Thomas Baker, and George Brandenburg, who has been a true demo-
crat ever since, and expects to vote for Tilden this Fall. The returns of
this election were made to Knox County, and taken there by George
Brandenburg. The Judges of this election were P. K. Hanna, George
Tyler, Thomas Glenn and Dr. Baker.

The first school in Hanna Township was organized in 1836, and
taught by Narcessa Stewart, who afterward became Mrs. Huntington
Wells, of Moline.

In 1836 the population was further increased by the arrival of Dr.
Gawyer, a man thoroughly radical but a good citizen, of good moral
character, who has since left our town. In the same year came Thomas
and Anderson Miller, who settled in this township. In 1837 came Henry
Hand, and settled and run the first chartered ferry on Rock River at Cleve-
land, and who has been a prominent citizen of the township until this
day ; also, in this year, came D. P. Grove, John Williams, John Searls,
Columbia Aldrich, William and James Burnard, Rev. Woodruff and son,

all of whom settled in Hanna Township. In the same year came

Stanbro and settled in the east part of town, where he lived to a good
old age and was much respected at his death, leaving his son on the home-
stead, who still occupies it, aud who has filled several positions of honor
in the county and is now a Justice of the Peace.

As an evidence of the want of good markets in those early days, we
state the following:

In 1839 the settlers collected their hogs and drove them to Chicago.
It took about three weeks to make the trip. After cammng out for this
length of time they arrived at the market and sold their pork for from
one dollar to two dollars and twenty cents per hundred.

In 1838 came Wm. Whitehead, Thomas Hill, Adrian Vanwinkle,
and Wesley Hanna. In the years from 1838 to 1845 the town settled up
quite rapidly. Among those coming in those years we will mention a few
of the settlers : J. W. Taylor, Adam Hooker and family, also the Lin-
nells, the Henningers, the Quillans, James Miller and Meads, with fami-
lies, and many others that for want of space we are unable to mention.

James Searles, though a resident of Rock Island County, living on the
bank of Rock River, has, from the early history of the town, always been
so closely identified with the interests of Hanna, that it seems like one
of the early settlers is left out without the mention of his name. He
settled where his family now reside, nearly opposite Cleveland, and took
a very active interest in schools, churches, and the improvement of our
water power on this side of the river. Mr. Searles died only a few days
ago, at the advanced age of 74 years, and his funeral was attended at the
old settlers' church, in Cleveland, by a very large concourse of friends,
and many of the old settlers of Rock Island and Henry Counties.



562 HISTORY OF HENRY COUNTY.

As an evidence of our growth in wealth and advancement in in-
dustrial pursuits since those early days of hard toil and little recompense,
we have but to call your attention to our thrifty fanners and stock raisers,
with their well-cultivated fields and well-filled granaries, our unexcelled
water-power, with unequalecl advantages, and extensive flouring mills,
our railroad facilities and schools and churches, our ever yielding stone
quarries and vast beds of coal, from which millions of bushels are taken
annually. In order to substantiate these statements more fully we extend
to all a cordial invitation to visit our township and the village of Cleve-
land, and spend a day on the pleasant banks of Rock River, exploring the
labyrinths of our coal beds, and fishing.

Pleasant and interesting remarks were ther. had from Dr. Gregg, of
Rock Island ; M. B. Potter, J. M. Allan, William T. Allan, Lewis Shearer,
M. B. Lloyd, and John Logan, of Whiteside. The latter announced that
the old settlers' meeting of Whiteside County, would be held at Lyndon,
on the last day of August.

The speakers elicited much merriment and applause, and their rem-
iniscences were highly interesting. We regret that we can not report
them in our limited space. The social features of the reunion were not
the least delightful, and when the meeting broke up at about 5 o'clock,
every one went away pleased, we are sure, with the occasion, the place,
and the people. Especially did this editor, who bore away a token of
Mrs. P. K. Raima's distinguished consideration, in the shape of a beauti-
ful bouquet.

ULAH

is a small village a few miles southeast of Cambridge. It is the result of
the railroad passing through that portion of the county, and was laid out
by C. A. Morris, owner of the town site, June 5, 18T-3. There are a few
stores, one or two shops, a railroad depot, and a grain elevator. The
number of inhabitants is about fifty. The village at present contains no
school, tl^e youth being sent to the district school about one mile south
of town. There is one church, the Methodist Episcopal. It was organ-
ized by the Rev. G. M. Morey, present pastorof Cambridge M. E. Church,
on April 10, 1866. About thirty persons united in forming this church.
They had met for divine worship in the Pleasant Valley school-house,
where they continued to hold divine service until 1875, when they com-
pleted their present commodious church edifice, costing about $1,000.
There are at present 88 members, and 40 scholars in the Sunday-school.
The pastor is the Rev. H. K. Metcalf. The Rev. G. M. Morey, W. B.
Frazell, and S. H. Humes have also labored here.

LYNN

was laid out by Malcom McKillop, Nov. 25, 1870. It is a small town,
situated on the St. Louis, Chicago and Rock Island railroad, and contains
about one hundred inhabitants. There are three stores, two or three
shops of various kinds, and one hotel.

Ky., two hundred picked men from the regiment, nmler command of ('apt. Dunn, of Co. D, with similar
detachments from other regiments at Somerset, all under command of -Major Dow, of the regiment, joined
< 'oloiiel Sanders in his celebrated raid o\ i-r the mountains into Ma. -I Tennessee. J-'or rapidity of movement,
marching over mountains, swimming rivers, by da\ :md night, and for successful execution, battling the
enemy, doing him a trn-at am-nint of damage, and finally escaping from a vastly superior force, where every
mountain gap was supposed to be securely guarded, this raid stands among the most brilliant of the war. It,
severely tested the eminence of the men and Officers who participated in it; the detachment of the 112th lost
deven men captured, and live men drowned in swimming Clinch Km-r at night, l-'rom Somerset. Ky., the
regiment moved back to Danville, Ky.. and in the month of July assisted in driving about 1,500 Rebels under
