"The settlers of the first decade came largely from some of the counties south of what is now Adair, particularly Randolph and Howard. Many of them had come to these counties from Kentucky and Tennessee. Some few came directly from Kentucky to Adair County. For the next twenty years after the first decade, we find the new settlers coming from other states also, such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. From Pennsylvania came a German element which founded Ninevah, some account of which will be given in another place. The neighborhood called Illinois Bend, was settled by people from Illinois. From Iowa came a few people. But the main streams of immigration flowed from the Mississippi along Salt River, and from Missouri along the Chariton." ~ submitted by dlbr 11/21/2011 for use by
