Silver Creek Township & Platt Map
 

August of 1835 is when Thomas Crain claimed a quarter section in the south-west corner. Crain's Grove is named after him. The first birth was Jacob Thompson in the summer of 1838. His proud parents were William and Lucinda Thompson. The first wedding didn't occur until February 11, 1841 when Frederick Baker and Miss Crain were united. The drowning of Milburn and Reed are supposed to have been the first deaths. (This may have occurred in Ridott.)
