This county was named in honor of Captain Samuel Grant and Moses Grant, who were killed in 1789, in a battle with the Indians, near the creek since called by their name, in the northeast part of Switzerland county. The surface of the county is quite level, except a strip along the Mississinewa river, where it is decidedly rolling. It was originally heavily timbered. The soil, without exception, is rich, and well adapted to the cultivation of grain, grass, fruit, etc. The farmers of the county are all blessed with abundant harvests; they are growing wealthy and independent. Marion, a town of two thousand five hundred inhabitants, is the county seat, and a thrifty place.
It has excellent railroad facilities, good schools, and, being surrounded with a fertile region of country, is destined to have a continuous growth.  Jonesboro is another thriving town in this county.
