Remarks of Enumerator
The County is nearly equally divided into Timber Prairie and what is called here Barrens. Heavily timbered with white, black and red oak, hickory elm, ash and black walnut. Coal a highly bitumunous charter is found on serverl creeks. The season ending June 1, 1850 was an unfavourable one for crops. The spring of 1849 having been wet. There was some cases of Cholera in1849. I know of no local cause for the same. The Fever & Auge has been prevalent upon the River & Creeks but is becoming less as the country becomes settled. The water is impregnated with lime. The soil is a rich Loam it varies in depth from six inches to six feet.
