GREENE COUNTY INDIANA HISTORY

    Greene County is divided into 15 Civil Townships as follows:
Beech Creek, Cass, Center, Fairplay, Grant, Highland, Jackson, Jefferson, Richland, Smith, Stafford, Stockton, Taylor, Washington and Wright.
    Greene County was established on February 5, 1821, from unorganized land and Sullivan County. County seat is Bloomfield.
Before that Greene County, with a large portion of the State of Indiana, belonged to a tribe of Indians called the Piankeshews
Bloomfield has not always been the County Seat. The first County Seat was located at Burlington.
    The locating commissioners had selected this site March 10, 1821, and Thomas Bradford, Frederick Shepherd and Zebulon Hogue had donated the land.
It became necessary to relocate in 1824 for the reason that an adequate supply of water was not obtainable at this point.
At this time, not a vestige remains of this former County Seat.  Peter C. Van Slyke, a wealthy landowner, offered to donate the land for
the location of a County Seat, which the commissioners accepted, and Bloomfield came into being.
    The first old pioneer settlers in this locality were, old Isaac Stalcup,  Ephraim Owen, John H. Owen,  Evan Owen,  John L. Buskirk,  Colonel Jack Stokely, James Jackson,Timothy Jessup,  Robert Baber and  John Kelley.  Afterwards came William J. McIntosh, Jacob McIntosh, Moore McIntosh, Samuel Kelshaw, Thomas Osborn, Edward Buckner, Richard Buckner,  David Deem, Rev. Samuel Meddley,  Dr. Simon Snyder,  Bailey McCutchan, Grandfather Baber, George Baber, John Hunter, John Cloud, William Bland, Jesse Martin.
