....The first corn was grown in Harrison township in the summer of 1841. Charles Harmon, who settled on the quarter section in the southeast corner of the township, had by the spring of '41 cleared enough ground to put in a patch of five acres. That was undoubtedly the largest cleared strip of ground in the county at that time, outside, of course, the small prairies in the northern and northwestern parts.
....The first orchards in the township were planted by Marion Crist, J. W. Heaton and Charles Harmon. The latter went to Indianapolis for his trees. He brought back one hundred, mostly apple, but mixed with them were a few cherries and pears.
