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.
