Bartholomew Co., IN - Founded 1-9-1821; formed from Jackso County and Delaware county. The new county extended far westward until part of it was trimmed away to Brown county in 1836. Thomas Harrison was one of the earliest purchasers of land in Columbus, IN. 6th St. was originally named Harrison Street. Enoch Harrison built the Elizabethtown Methodist Church, ca. 1854. Carter Harrison settled in Wayne Township about 1830. Rev. W. Harrison served as a pastor of a county Methodist church after 1856. Settlers mostly came from KY, VA and the Carolinas, and found a burgeoning little village in the 1820's, but also conditions that made for slow growth. The largely swampy and malaria-infested environs invited dreaded frontier diseases. Tombstone: Vinson D., husband of Rebecca Harrison, Died July __, 1857, aged fifty-six years. Remember me as you pass by; as you are now so once was I; as I am now so you will be; prepare for death and follow me. Buried on Connor Farm, Bartholomew Co., IN
