STORY OF HANCOCK COUNTY, ILLINOIS 



Although that chapter in Hancock County's past having to do with the found- 
ing of Nauvoo and the Mormon disturbances of the 1840's is one of the most 
dramatic in Illinois — and American — history, yet it does not contain the whole 
story of the county. For a complete narrative of the birth, rise and present status 
of Hancock County, located on the Mississippi River in west central Illinois, we 
must turn to the quiet, industrious, patient folk who, generation after generation 
both before the Mormons arrived and after they left, built Hancock County into one 
of the Prairie State's leading agricultural counties of today. 

Among the thousands of tourists who annually visit Nauvoo State Park for a 
glimpse of the historic buildings and landmarks in this early Mormon city, there 
are many who observe with an appreciative eye the great, level, prosperous farms 
of the county and the tall, white grain elevators that signalize thriving towns and 
villages on railroads or highways. Here, too, are the miles and miles of vineyards 
that form the background of Nauvoo's Festival of the Grape — an annual folk 
event that brings hundreds of additional visitors to the historic old town on the 
Mississippi. 

Another characteristic of Hancock County are its many fine pasture lands 
where graze the cattle that provide one more unique county product — its re- 
nowned blue cheese. Actually, the Grape Festival at Nauvoo, staged each Sep- 
tember, celebrates the Wedding of the Wine and Cheese, a picturesque ceremony 
introduced into the county by the French colonists who took over Nauvoo after the 
Mormons left in 1846. 



FRENCH EXPLORERS 

First white men to view the future site of Hancock County were the famous 
French explorers. Father Marquette and Louis JoUiett. After leaving Quebec in 
1673 and paddling in their canoes through the Great Lakes and down the Wiscon- 
sin River, they discovered the Upper Mississippi River that same year. 

On their way down the Mississippi as far as the mouth of the Arkansas 
River, Marquette and Jolliet passed the land that in aftertimes was to become 
Hancock County. They then returned to Quebec by way of the Illinois River and 
claimed almost all of interior America for the King of France. Thus it became a 
colony called New France. 

One hundred years later, after the close of the French and Indian Wars, this 
great wilderness domain came into the possession of the British. But by that time 



the thirteen colonies were firmly established on the Atlantic seaboard. Then came 
the American Revolution of 1775-1783. After George Rogers Clark and his handful 
of American backwoodsmen captured key British posts in Illinois and Indiana, the 
new American flag was for the first time raised over what is now the eastern half 
of the Midwest. 

There followed the formation of the Northwest Territory, out of which were 
later carved the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and part of 
Minnesota. When the Territory of Illinois was created in 1809, future Hancock 
County lay in St. Clair County, which then embraced most of upper Illinois. Then, 
in 1812, Madison County was organized and included what is now Hancock County. 
When Pike County was established in 1821, it embraced the region of present-day 
Hancock. And there the region remained until Hancock County was created in 
1825. 



EARLY FRENCH FORT 

If Marquette and JoUiet were the first white men to glimpse the soil of future 
Hancock County, the first to establish temporary settlement in the area appear to 
have been the soldiers who occupied an early French fort which, we are told, 
stood on the site of preserit-day Warsaw, second largest city in the county. It 
seems this log fort was built during the French and Indian War of 1754-1760 to 
protect French interests on the Mississippi against the British and their Indian 
allies. 

One account, written in 1874, says this French post, called Fort Johnston or 
Johnson, "was situated on the high point, two hundred yards below Main Street, in 
Warsaw." It adds that the fort was abandoned by the French when a large British 
force from the Great Lakes region threatened to attack it. By 1825, when Hancock 
County was organized, this old French outpost was in a state of ruins. 

AN AMERICAN FORT 

It would seem that from earliest times the site of future Warsaw was con- 
sidered a strategic one by military officers. For after this territory came under 
the American flag, and following the close of the War of 1812, the federal govern- 
ment built another fort here; one that safeguarded the frontier from Indian raids. 
This was called Fort Edwards after Ninian Edwards, who was then governor of 
the Territory of Illinois, which had been organized in 1809. 

From An Illustrated Atlas of Hancock County, Illinois, published by A. T. An- 
dreas, we learn that Fort Edwards "was situated on the high bluffs overlooking 
the Mississippi, about a quarter of a mile above Main street, in Warsaw. It con- 
sisted of two block houses, a magazine, and four other buildings, and enclosed 
about a quarter of an acre of land. It was built soon after the War of 1812, to pro- 
tect the frontier from Indian depredations. It was evacuated about 1827. In 1830, it 
was occupied as a hotel." 



MAJOR ZACHARY TAYLOR 

Not least interesting about Fort Edwards, located in what was to become 
Hancock County, is that it was built by soldiers under the command of young 
Major Zachary Taylor, who, about three decades later, became twelfth President 
of the United States. After joining the army in 1808, Taylor was commissioned a 
captain in 1810, and during the War of 1812, was elevated to major following his 
successful defense of Fort Harrison (afterwards Terre Haute, Indiana). 

With the close of the War of 1812, Major Taylor supervised the building of 
Fort Edwards, in what was then Madison County, as well as a number of other 
military posts on the frontier of that period. Then he fought in the Black Hawk 
War of 1832, and came out of that conflict a colonel. It was in the Mexican War of 
1846-1848 that Taylor, now a general, won his spurs as a military hero of the first 
rank. He became President of the United States in 1849. A year later President 
Taylor was stricken with typhus fever and shortly afterwards died in the White 
House. He was succeeded in office by Millard Fillmore. 

MILITARY FAMILIES 

When Fort Edwards was in its prime a number of army officers and their 
families lived in log cabins adjacent to the post. Among these was Major John R. 
Wilcox, who appears to have retired from the army afterwards to become one of the 
founders of the town of Warsaw. Others associated with him in the platting of 
Warsaw in 1834 were Mark Aldrich, John Montague and John W. Vineyard. The 
survey of the town was made by James W. Brattle. 

In addition to army officers, other early settlers of Warsaw were Curtis 
Caldwell, John Clark, Isham Cochran, Jarvis Beebe, Mark Aldrich, and a French 
family named Buisanette. By the time Warsaw was laid out. Fort Edwards had 
been abandoned as a military post and was used for a time as a hotel and a fur 
headquarters. 

FIRST PERMANENT SETTLERS 

Believed to have been the first permanent settler of what is now Hancock 
County was I. J. Waggoner, who arrived at an early day and staked out a claim in 
what now is Montebello Township. At that time the region in which he settled 
belonged to Pike County. Soon after Waggoner came another newcomer, Amzi 
Doolittle, built a log cabin in future Appanoose Township and he is believed to 
have been the county's second permanent settler. 

A glance at the county's first elected officers, and first grand and petit 
jurymen (see "First Election" and "First Jurymen") will reveal the names of 
other early settlers who came before Hancock County was organized in 1825. 



HANCOCK COUNTY ESTABLISHED 

By the middle 1820's there were enough settlers in the region to form a new 
county. Accordingly, petitions were soon in circulation among the citizens of the 
area, and when enough signatures were obtained, the petitions were presented to 
the Illinois state legislature. That body thereafter passed an enabling act creating 
Hancock County on January 13, 1825, the act having been signed by Governor 
Edward Coles. Five other new Illinois counties were established that same year— 
Calhoun, Clay, Adams, McDonough and Warren. 

At first, the seat of Hancock County was established at Fort Edwards, as 
this was the largest community at that time. Earliest sessions of the County 
Commissioners* Court were held in temporary quarters at Fort Edwards, usually 
a private log dwelling. When the town of Carthage was platted in 1835, it became 
the seat of justice of Hancock County. 

FIRST COUNTY OFFICERS 

It was not until 1829 that the citizens of Hancock County elected their first 
county officers. The election was held in Fort Edwards and the population of the 
county then was not much more than 350 inhabitants. When the voting was over, 
James White, George Y. Cutler and Henry Nichols were found to have been elected 
members of the County Commissioners' Court. They, in turn, appointed Isaac 
Campbell as treasurer; Wesley Williams as clerk; and John Johnson as county 
surveyor. 

At one of its earliest meetings, the County Commissioners' Court "ordered 
that, until otherwise directed, the courts of this county shall be held at the house 
of James White, at or near the head of the lower rapids." The county ruling body 
also ordered "that, on the motion of Wesley Williams, the Clerk of this court be 
permitted to hold his office at or near the house of Hazen Bedell, near the foot of 
the lower rapids, for the present, if he chooses." 

FIRST JURYMEN 

In addition to the above officers, all of whom were early settlers of Hancock 
County, the names of the county's first jurymen give further glimpses of the 
region's early pioneers. Summoned to serve on the county's first grand jury in 
1829 were Daniel Crenshaw, Luther Whitney, Morrell Marston, John Clark, Leonard 
L. Abney, Philip Malett, William Clark, Reuben Bratton, Thomas Payne, John 
Sikes, John Johnson, John Harding, William Vance, Hazen Bedell, John Waggoner, 
Robert Wallace, James Miller, Davison Hibbard, Samuel Gooch, John Reed, Isaac 
R. Campbell, Edward White, Hugh Wilson and a Mr. Dewey. 

On the county's first petit jury of the Circuit Court were Horace B. Whitney, 
John R. Wilcox, Edward Robertson, Samuel Brierly, James Brierly, Robert Harding, 
Aaron Harding, Abijah Wilson, Abdiel Parsons, Richard Chaney, Benjamin T. 



Tungate, George W. Harper, Charles Robinson, Charles Smith, Patrick Moffitt, 
William Wallace, Nathaniel Kennedy, John Campbell, Ralph Raborn, Thomas 
Softly, Enoch Hankins, Arthur Parvin, Abraham Moore, Alexander White, Asa Reed, 
William Flint, Peter Williams, Dan Van Burkloe, Amzi Doolittle, Hezekiah Spill- 
man, Richard Dunn, Sam Bell, Noah W. Payne, Joseph Puryear, and a Mr. Yaples 
and a Mr. Lewis. 

The above-named, and others, were the men who pioneered in Hancock 
County history. "The early settlers of this county," says a local historical work 
issued in 1874, "were men of energy and courage, and came mainly from the 
Middle and Southern States. They were men of rough manners, but generous im- 
pulses . . . They had to encounter the usual vicissitudes and hardships of the 
pioneers; and were brave participants in the early Indian wars; but there is no 
record extant that they were particularly assailed in the Black Hawk and Winne- 
bago wars, the theater of the Indian depradations being more intimately associ- 
ated in the memories of the early settlers of adjacent counties." 

CARTHAGE BECOMES COUNTY SEAT 

As population rapidly increased in the new county, the desirability of a more 
centrally located county seat than Fort Edwards (afterwards Warsaw) was felt 
throughout the countryside. And thus it came about that Carthage was platted, 
and designated the county's new seat of justice, in 1835. Soon afterwards a 
permanent courthouse was built here, as well as a county jail. Today, Carthage 
has a population of 3,214 and is served by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy and 
Wabash railroads as well as by US 136 and State 94. The city contains Carthage 
College, founded in 1870 and the first Lutheran college in the Midwest. 

WARSAW PLATTED 

When Hancock County was organized in 1825, old Fort Edwards, on the 
Mississippi River, was abandoned as a military post, but the settlement around it 
remained and this became Hancock's first county seat. It was in 1834 that this 
settlement was formally platted as a town and its name changed to Warsaw. The 
founders of the town were Major John R. Wilcox, Mark Aldrich, John Montague and 
John Vineyard. 

A year after the town was platted, however, it lost the title of county seat 
to the new town of Carthage, located in a more central position than Warsaw. 
Today, Warsaw is the second largest city in Hancock County, having a population 
of 2,002. It is situated on the Toledo, Peoria & Western Railroad and adjacent to 
State 96. 

Other towns and villages founded about the same time as Warsaw and Carth- 
age and still in existence are Appanoose, Augusta, La Harpe, Fountain Green, 
Chili, Plymouth, Pulaski and Pontoosuc. It is to be noted these towns and vil- 



lages were established just after the Black Hawk War of 1832, a conflict that 
resulted in the permanent removal of the Indians from Illinois. 



JOHN HANCOCK 

Hancock County is named after John Hancock, patriot of the American Revo- 
lution whose elaborate signature heads the list of signers of the Declaration of 
Independence. As is well known, John Hancock's name has now become a popular 
folk expression, being another term for anyone's signature. A native of Braintree, 
Massachusetts, where he was born in 1737, John Hancock was educated at Harvard 
University, inherited his uncle's wealth and mercantile business in 1764, and 
became a leader, with Samuel Adams, in the American Revolution. 

From 1775 to 1777, John Hancock presided over the Continental Congress. 
In 1780 he was elected the first governor of Massachusetts. He was re-elected to 
this office almost continuously until his death in 1793. One of the best biograph- 
ies of him is John Hancock, written by L. Sears and published in 1912. 



ARRIVAL OF THE MORMONS 

In the spring of 1839 thousands of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of 
Latter-day Saints, popularly known as the Mormons, came to Hancock County and 
established a headquarters city they called "Nauvoo," this being a Hebrew word, 
they said, for "beautiful place." 

Although the Mormons are now divided into two branches, namely the Church 
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (with headquarters at Salt Lake City, Utah) 
and the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day (with headquarters at 
Independence, Missouri), both groups look to Nauvoo, in Hancock County, Illinois, 
as an historic shrine of the first importance in their system of religion. 

For not only was Nauvoo, once the largest city in Illinois, laid out and built 
by Joseph Smith, founder and Prophet of the Mormon religion, but it was here he 
was arrested during the Mormon disturbances of the 1840's and, while in jail at 
Carthage, shot and killed (together with his brother) by a mob of angry citizens. 
But today the old town of Nauvoo is of interest to others besides those of the 
Mormon faith, and it was for this additional reason the State of Illinois converted 
it into a state park. 

It was in 1830 that Joseph Smith, after he published the Book of Mormon at 
Palmyra, New York, founded the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 
Subsequently, church headquarters were moved to Ohio and then to Missouri. When 
Joseph Smith and his followers were expelled from Missouri, they moved across 
the Mississippi River and established the city of Nauvoo in Illinois. 



NAUVOO FOUNDED 

On his arrival at the site of Nauvoo in 1839, Joseph Smith found there a 
small village called Commerce. It had formerly been an Indian trading post. "The 
place," wrote the Prophet afterwards, "was literally a wilderness. The land was 
mostly covered with trees and bushes, and much of it was so wet that it was with 
the utmost difficulty that a footman could get through, and totally impossible for 
teams. Commerce was so unhealthy very few could live there, but believing that 
it might become a healthy place by the blessing of heaven to the Saints, and no 
more eligible place presenting itself, I considered it wisdom to make an attempt 
to build up a city." 

Here, then, Joseph Smith built the city of Nauvoo. When completed, when 
its great hill-top temple looked out over the Mississippi valley, Nauvoo had 
20,000 inhabitants— it was then the largest city in Illinois. And it was at this 
time, too, that Joseph Smith, now wielding widespread influence, announced 
himself as a candidate for President of the United States. He sent missionaries 
to all parts of the nation. 

BUILDING OF THE TEMPLE 

What was to have been the masterpiece of all public buildings in the "New 
Zion" here on the Mississippi River was the Nauvoo Temple, which, although 
actually completed, was used only for a few months before the Mormons were 
driven from Illinois. A tall, ornate, stone edifice topped by a gilded statue of the 
angel Moroni, the Nauvoo Temple stood on a promontory above the Mormon town, 
and, during its short existence, was something of a landmark to Mississippi 
steamboat captains. After being partially destroyed by fire started by an incendi- 
ary in 1848, it was later completely ruined in an electrical storm. 

MURDER OF THE PROPHET 

As more and more converts to the Mormon faith poured into Nauvoo from all 
parts of America and even from England, as the huge Nauvoo Temple was nearing 
completion and as Joseph Smith grew in power and influence, opposition to the 
new sect increased steadily among the non-Mormon settlers of the countryside. 
For one thing, the non-Mormons, most of whom lived at Carthage, feared the grow- 
ing political influence of the Saints at Nauvoo; they resented the balance of 
political power in Illinois now held by the Smith followers. 

In the midst of this increasing antagonism, there occurred a sudden break 
among the leaders of the church. Joseph Smith was accused of tyranny and oppres- 
sion. When the Prophet destroyed his opposition's newspaper and printing press, 
he, together with his brother Hyrum and several others, was arrested and placed 
in the county jail at Carthage. While confined here, Joseph Smith and his brother 
were, on June 27, 1844, shot to death by an enraged mob that stormed the jail. 



DEPARTURE OF THE MORMONS 

Although the murder of the Prophet and his brother brought a temporary halt 
in the activities of those opposed to the church, it was not long before resentment 
again flared. After a number of armed clashes, Brigham Young, who took command 
of the Saints, ordered that the church should abandon Nauvoo, leave Illinois, and 
seek a New Zion elsewhere. And thus it came about that the Mormons migrated to 
Salt Lake City, in Utah, the last of them leaving Illinois 1847. 

But not all of them followed Brigham Young to Utah. With the death of the 
Prophet, a sizable number of the Saints felt that leadership of the church should 
legally pass to the Prophet's son and namesake. As a result of this division, a 
new group was established and called itself the Reorganized Church of Jesus 
Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was headed by Joseph Smith, son of the Prophet, 
and set up headquarters at Independence, Missouri. 

A FRENCH UTOPIA 

After the Mormons left Nauvoo, the town was deserted and in time its once- 
populous streets were overgrown with weeds. And thus it was when, in 1849, a 
group of French communists, known as the Icarians, took over the abandoned town 
with the intention of setting up here a socialistic Utopia. These Icarians were 
headed by Etienne Cabet, a prominent French lawyer who, in his widely-read book 
Voyage to Icaria, urged the formation of a socialistic community based, we are 
told, on "the moral teachings of Christ." 

Soon the town of Nauvoo was brought back to life by the Icarians, who lived 
and worked under rules established by a president, elected annually, and a cabi- 
net of directors. But in time the Icarians became restless, dissension followed, 
and by 1856 this ideal community fell to pieces. In that year Cabet and a few of 
his followers retired to St. Louis and there the French idealist died a short while 
later. If the Icarians did not achieve their dream of a Utopia in the middle of 
America, however, they at least introduced an activity that has remained in the 
region — the gentle art of wine-making. 

GERMAN IMMIGRANTS 

Once more a "deserted village," Nauvoo, again, did not long remain so. For 
by this time an increasing number of German immigrants were settling in Hancock 
County, and a goodly portion of these came to live in the abandoned houses at 
Nauvoo. Some of these Germans were refugees of the Revolution of 1848 in Ger- 
many. As they were all sturdy, industrious, quiet and conventional folk, the 
countryside round about Nauvoo soon was a normal, thriving, rural area of farms, 
pastures and vineyards. 



MR. LINCOLN SPEAKS 

Another outstanding event in the history of Hancock County was the oc- 
casion on which Abraham Lincoln spoke before a large crowd in the county seat 
town of Carthage. It was during the Illinois senatorial campaign of 1858 when 
Lincoln, then running as a candidate for United States senator against Stephen 
A. Douglas, addressed a crowd of 6,000 persons in the Public Square at Carthage. 
Afterwards, the Chicago Tribune said that "Mr. Lincoln was in admirable spirits 
and voice and gave us the best speech ever made in Hancock County." The site 
where Lincoln spoke that day (October 22, 1858) is now indicated by a stone 
marker at the south entrance of the Hancock County Courthouse in Carthage. 

CARTHAGE COLLEGE 

Near the eastern limits of the city of Carthage is located Carthage College, 
a co-educational seat of learning established in 1870. It was the first Lutheran 
college to be founded in the Midwest. Today, the college occupies a broad, elm- 
shaded campus on which stand a number of low brick and stone buildings. It is 
attended by students from many parts of west central Illinois. 



LOCK AND DAM NO. 19 

Serving Hancock County, as well as many other counties in both Illinois and 
Iowa, is Lock and Dam No. 19, a giant hydro-electric power project on the Mis- 
sissippi River at Hamilton, in Hancock County. It was built in 1913 at a cost of 
$23,000,000 and was then the largest hydro-electric plant in the Midwest. Other- 
wise known as the Keokuk Dam, this project is one of twenty-six locks and dams 
constructed to improve navigation on the Upper Mississippi River. It has a ca- 
pacity of 200,000 horsepower and its cables, supported on steel towers, supply 
electricity to such a distant city as St. Louis. 

LAKE COOPER 

When the Keokuk Dam was built in 1913, it resulted in the formation of a 
placid body of water on the Illinois shore that now is known as Lake Cooper. It 
was named after Hugh L. Cooper, chief engineer in charge of the construction of 
Lock and Dam No. 19. The lake affords opportunities for boating, bathing, fishing 
and duck-hunting, and on its hilly banks are located numerous summer cottages. 

FESTIVAL OF THE GRAPE 

An annual folk event at Nauvoo which brings many visitors to the historic 
old town is the Festival of the Grape, held each September in celebration of the 
grape harvest. It was the French Icarians who first introduced grape culture into 



the Nauvoo region, and, since then, this activity has been greatly expanded by 
the German immigrants who came later and by others. 

Included in the festival is the ceremony called Wedding of the Wine and 
Cheese, a custom brought over from Roquefort, France. For Hancock County is 
also noted as the producer of Nauvoo blue cheese, an appetizing product that has 
become widely popular. There are many old wine cellers and underground cheese 
storage places in Nauvoo. Beyond the town, on rolling, sunny slopes, stretch 
numberless vineyards in all directions. 

NAUVOO STATE PARK 

Because of its rich historical associations and its surviving landmarks, the 
older portion of Nauvoo, known locally as the Flat, has been taken over by the 
State of Illinois and converted into a state park. It comprises an area of 200 acres 
and contains such landmarks as the Joseph Smith and Brigham Young homes, as 
well as the dwelling houses of several other Mormon leaders. 

Beyond this lower town rises the Hill, where may be found the site of the 
great Nauvoo Temple, and also several French Icarian apartment houses and an 
Icarian meeting hall. Here, also, stands the Oriental Hotel, only stopping-place 
in Nauvoo today. With its many relics on display, the Oriental Hotel is something 
of a local museum. 



HANCOCK COUNTY TODAY 

According to the latest U. S. census figures, Hancock County in 1950 had a 
total population of 25,790, which in population rank placed it 1,111th among the 
3,103 counties in the United States. Its principal city and county seat, Carthage, 
had a population of 3,214-an increase of 24.8 per cent over its 1940 figure. With 
a land area of 797 square miles, the county's density of population was 32 inhab-

THE ILLINOIS STATE FLAG 



12 



STATE FLAG OF ILLINOIS 

Illinois' State F^lag was officially adopted on July 6, 1915, after a vigorous 
campaign by Mrs. Ella Park Lawrence, State Regent of the Daughters of the Ameri- 
can Revolution. 

Early in 1912, Mrs. Lawrence began visiting local D. A. R. chapters throughout 
Illinois seeking cooperation in promoting selection of an official State banner to 
place in the Continental Memorial Hall in Washington, D. C. In 1913, Mrs. 
Lawrence offered a prize of $25.00 to the Illmois D. A. R. chapter submitting the 
best design for the banner. She also wrote to members of the General Assembly 
seeking their cooperation. 

Four judges were then selected to choose the winning design. Thirty five 
designs were submitted and the Rockford Chapter entry was chosen as Illinois' 
future emblem. 

State Senator Raymond D. Meeker introduced the bill which was to legalize 
the flag. After passage in the Senate it was pushed through the House of Represen- 
tatives, despite an overcrowded calendar. 

The measure automatically became a law July 6, 1915, when the Governor 
failed to affix his signature to the bill. 

The first official flag, made in Washington, D. C, was three by five feet in 
size, of white silk. Flags were given by Mrs. Lawrence to Secretary of State;, 
Daughters of the American Revolution in Illinois; National Society Daughters of 
the American Revolution in Illinois; National Society Daughters of the American 
Revolution (to hang in Memorial Continental Hall, Washington, D. C); Rebecca 
Parke Chapter, Galesburg and the Illinois State Historical Society. 

Visitors to Springfield cannot fail to notice the State Banner flanking the 
Stars and Stripes in the Rotunda at the State House. In the same juxtaposition it 
appears in the office of the Secretary of State. It is flown on ceremonial days by 
numerous patriotic bodies throughout the State. For officials and the public alike 
it stands as a reminder of our greatness as a State and our pride in our membership 
in the United States of America,

CARTHAGE 

In the geographical center of Hancock County is located Carthage, seat of 
justice and largest city in the county. In 1950 it had a total population of 3,214 — 
an increase of 24.8 per cent over its 1940 figure. The city is served by the Chi- 
cago, Burlington & Quincy and the Wabash railroads and by US 136 and State 94. 

Just east of Carthage, on US 136, is situated Carthage College, a co-educa- 
tional seat of learning established in 1870. It was the first Lutheran college to 
be founded in the Midwest. The college occupies a number of low brick and stone 
buildings on an elm-shaded campus and is attended by students from all parts of 
west central Illinois. 

An outstanding historic sight in Carthage is the old stone county jail in 
which the founder of the Mormon church, Joseph Smith, and his brother were shot 
to death by an angry mob during the Mormon disturbances of the 1840's. Another 
notable historic sight in Carthage is the stone marker on the Public Square mark- 
ing the spot where Abraham Lincoln spoke in 1858. 

Carthage city is the only community in Carthage Township, which has a 
total population of 3,771.

NIOTA 

Only community of Appanoose Township, in the northwest corner of the 
county, is the village of Niota. It is sometimes called East Fort Madison because 
of its location on the Illinois side of the Fort Madison toll bridge over the Mis- 
sissippi River at this point. Niota is on state highways 9 and 96. The township 
in which it is located, Appanoose, has a total population of 717. First settlers of

CARTHAGE 

In the geographical center of Hancock County is located Carthage, seat of 
justice and largest city in the county. In 1950 it had a total population of 3,214 — 
an increase of 24.8 per cent over its 1940 figure. The city is served by the Chi- 
cago, Burlington & Quincy and the Wabash railroads and by US 136 and State 94. 

Just east of Carthage, on US 136, is situated Carthage College, a co-educa- 
tional seat of learning established in 1870. It was the first Lutheran college to 
be founded in the Midwest. The college occupies a number of low brick and stone 
buildings on an elm-shaded campus and is attended by students from all parts of 
west central Illinois. 

An outstanding historic sight in Carthage is the old stone county jail in 
which the founder of the Mormon church, Joseph Smith, and his brother were shot 
to death by an angry mob during the Mormon disturbances of the 1840's. Another 
notable historic sight in Carthage is the stone marker on the Public Square mark- 
ing the spot where Abraham Lincoln spoke in 1858. 

Carthage city is the only community in Carthage Township, which has a 
total population of 3,771.

FOUNTAIN GREEN 

Northeast of Carthage, in a fertile farming area, lies the village of Fountain 
Green, which in 1950 had a population of 150. The village is one of the oldest in 
Hancock County, having been laid out in 1835 by Jabez A. Beebee and Stephen G. 
Ferris. It was platted by James W. Brattle, pioneer surveyor. The village is the 
principal community of Fountain Green Township, with a total population of 666. 
One of the earliest settlers of the township was Abraham Lincoln, a cousin and 
namesake of the Great Emancipator. He arrived in 1830. First settler of the town- 
ship, however, was John Day, who came in 1829.

WEBSTER 

The only other community in Fountain Green Township is the village of 
Webster, which in 1950 had a population of eighty-eight. It is served by the post- 
office at nearby Carthage city. Webster was founded in 1840 and is therefore one 
of the older villages of the county.

BENTLEY 

On the Wabash Railroad just south of Carthage lies the incorporated village 
of Bentley, which in 1950 had a population of eighty-eight. It is situated adjacent 
to State 94. Bentley was founded more than seventy-five years ago after the rail- 
road was built through the area. The township in which it is located, Harmony, 
has a total population of 716. One of the earliest settlers of the township was 
George M. Browning, who arrived in 1834. 



231 




DENVER 

Another community in Harmony Township is the village of Denver, which 
also was founded more than seventy-five years ago. Situated south of Bentley and 
in a fertile farming area, Denver is likewise on the Wabash Railroad.

PONTOOSUC 

The village of Pontoosuc, with a population of 214, is located in the north 
portion of the county and fronts on the Mississippi River, which at this point 
runs in an almost east-west direction. The village is adjacent to Dallas City on 
the one hand, and Fort Madison, across the Mississippi in Iowa, on the other. It 
is the only community in Pontoosuc Township, which in 1950 had a total popula- 
tion of 478. The village of Pontoosuc was founded in 1837 by Hezekiah Spillman, 
Marvin Tryon and James W. Brattle. Its site was formerly known as Spillman's 
Landing.

ELVASTON 

Another village in the county founded more than seventy-five years ago is 
Elvaston, which today has a population of 238. It is located on the Wabash and 
Toledo, Peoria & Western railroads and on US 136. Elvaston is the principal 
community of Prairie Township, with a total population of 660. Among early 
settlers in the township were H. M. Walker, J. W. Hawley and William Hamilton, 
all of whom arrived in the 1830's. 



355 




McCALL 

Only other community in Prairie Township is the hamlet of McCall, which in 
1950 had a population of twenty-five. It is served by the postoffice at nearby 
Carthage. McCall was founded in the 1870's after the Toledo, Peoria & Western 
Railroad was built through the region.
