|Ohio county owes its existence to a
county seat fight, which had been waged in Dearborn
county for many years prior to 1844, when Ohio
county was formally organized by an act of the
Legislature. There can be no question but that Ohio
county was the direct result of the three-cornered
struggle between Lawrenceburg, Wilmington and Rising
Sun for the honor of being the county seat of
Dearborn county. The final outcome of the struggle
resulted in an act of the Legislature, passed
January 15, 1844, establishing Ohio county, with
Rising Sun as its county seat.
The first term of court in Ohio county convened on
the second Monday of December, 1844, at which time
Asaph Buck was the only resident member of the Ohio
county bar. At this first court Miles C. Eggleston
was the President Judge, and Samuel Fulton and
Thomas H. Gilmore were the Associate Judges.
