The “genesis” of Marshall County; chapter eight
By TOM STEWART
The next few entries were applications to build a few more roads and grist mills, saw mills, and to lay out the fundamentals of roads. But the next meeting established a system of election of officials of the district.
The language is difficult and confusing by our standards. The names are difficult and not clear so if anyone knows of family names that fit, please let me know. The intent and situation however is clear. The thing that confuses me, and I have difficulty with, is trying to visualize the physical existence of a situation where in March a few are trying to organize while still placing markers for streets and lots and two months later they are meeting in “offices” and other places. One wonders if they were sleeping on the ground one day and building a town and a government the next. The rate of development is, to me, astounding.
