Jennings and Scott Counties

Book Description:

Early days in Jennings County and Scott County, IN, are recalled in this booklet of excerpts from the rare 1889 book: Biographical and Historical Souvenir for the Counties of Clark, Crawford, Harrison, Floyd, Jefferson, Jennings, Scott and Washington. Excerpts from Indiana, a Guide to the Hoosier State, a 1941 product of the WPA, are also included. The 36-page spiral bound booklet is 8 1/2 x 11 1/2" and is printed one-sided on 60# paper. A vinyl sheet protects the front cover. Individual booklets for Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Jefferson, and Washington counties are also available. Some of the topics in the brief history sections are: County boundaries; Physical features -- terrain, waterways, etc.; Agriculture; Pigeons in Scott county; an Indian massacre; Settlements; County organizations; Railroads; an unflattering description of the Negro population; Towns -- Vernon (county seat for Jennings County), North Vernon, and Scottsburg (county seat for Scotts County). This booklet is a goldmine of information for genealogy seekers, often giving the names of parents, spouse, in-laws, children, siblings, etc., as well as military service, politics, residence, occupation, and more. The bios include both early settlers and residents of the county in the 1880's: Jennings County -- Jeptha Dudley New, Pierson Conkling, Lincoln Dixon, John D. Kidd, John Overmyer, James Schultheiss, and Greene L. Smith; Scott County -- William B. Everitt, Thomas H. Everitt, Barnet K. Gladden, Dr. W.E. Green, Columbus B. Harrod, Horatio S. Hazzard, Levi R. Jones, Rev. Charlie A. Manker, Z.C. Mathes, Richard W. Montgomery, A. Newt Munden, Allen M. Peeler, William Rice, Dr. George M. Warmoth and Dr. John M. Watson. The WPA tour sections include stops at North Vernon, Muscatatuck State Park, Vernon, Scottsburg, Austin and the Pigeon Roost Memorial.
