Established: Jan. 6, 1837
Parent County: Carroll
County Seat: Chillicothe
Named After: Secretary of State Edward Livingston.
Is situated in the northwestern part of the State, and contains an area of 530
square miles. The surface of the county is generally level or slightly rolling, and the
soil admirably adapted to the production of all kinds of grain, grasses, fruit and
vegetables that flourish in this latitude. Stock-growers will find here an excel
lent location for the profitable prosecution of that enterprise. Lead has been found in
several localities, and banks are already opened near Utica, and at other points in the
county, which will in some measure compensate for the scarcity of timber. Principal towns
Chillicothe, Utica, Bedford, and Dawn. Population in 1860, 6,833.
