Excerpt: .a considerable stream in its course across the township, although not large enough to make it sufficient for mill-power. The township is bounded on the north by Martin, east by Cheneys Grove, south by West, and west by Padua, and is second from the eastern and southern boundary line of the county. Owing to the lack of timber it had few early settlers, and correspondingly fewer early incidents of importance. EARLY SETTLERS. So far as the facta in regard to the earliest settlement in this township are at hand, it seems that the sons of Jonathan Cheney were the first to take up claims and live in what is now Arrowsmith. The land around the head of the timber was attractive on account of its grass. All around the old Indian fort, the blue-grass had come in after the prairie-grass had been killed out. The first year of Jonathan Cheneys residence in the county, he had driven his cattle here for late pasturage. Undoubtedly attracted by this fine pasturage, his sons, when they began to look out homes for themselves, looked this way, for, in 1833, two or three of them had taken claims in this township. Thomas lived for a while in Section 31, where he had a little patch of about ten acres fenced in. He did not remain on it long, however, as a few years after he sold it to Daniel Hall. and joined his brother Owen, iu Padua, in building a mill. He afterward went to California. Cassel Banks, father of Marks Banks, of Padua, rented this land one year. David Hall came here about 1837, and settled on this land in Section 31. Here hi and his sons, Pryor and Daniel, built their cabins, and remained here until the old gentleman died. Pryor removed to California, and Daniel, Jr., died here, his children living around here. Their sister married Mr. Maurice. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
