1818 Road Authorization

While begining to work on the documents found in our recent new discovery, we came across this authorization for a road near Pigeon Creek.  It is dated 1818 and also lists the men who were tasked to inspect the road.  This signals the development of our county’s infrastructure.  It is also signed by county founder and the very first Vanderburgh County Clerk, Hugh McGary.
