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.
