This township was first called Tama after the Indian chief Tama. The Prairie was called Tam town Prairie. Tama a Sac chief had a Village on Tama Slough above the City and the Island made by the Slough is called Tama but my old democratic Friend. John Salladay who resided in this township in fact there were but two or three whig voters in the township and a few other democrats came to town and induced the county commissioners who were All democrats to change the name from Tama to Benton. It was named after Hon. Thomas h. Benton senator from Missouri and one of the leading democrats of the nation at that Day. This township was about half Prairie and half Timber. The Prairies were Small so Timber and Prairie farms were combined and it settled up quite rapidly. The first settler was the late Mathew w. Latty. He came from Adams county Illinois in the Spring of 1834, and told me he had to Cut a Road through the Timber to get to the claim he had selected and i have no doubt but that he was the farthest North of any settler West of the Mississippi River at that Date unless at the Lead mines and they were miners. His claim was in what is now sections 20 and 29. He claimed a half Section a Quarter of Timber and a Quarter of Prairie and the Timber was North of the Prairie so As to protect his House barns Etc., from the cold storms of the Winter he built his Cabin on the Edge of the Prairie near where is Latty station on the Burlington Cedar rapids and Northern Railroad nine Miles from the City. Or. Latty was from the same county in Kentucky that i came from Gallatin and a neighbor of Gen. We. O. Butler. He was in a Kentucky company in the War of 1812, and was in the cattle of new Orleans Jan. 8th, 1815, and i believe always thought that Gen. Jackson did not give the kentuckians credit for what they did in that Battles. He was always a Henry Clay whig and cast one of the two or three whig votes in Benton. I am not sure but at one election his was the Only whig vote cast. Or. Latty died a few years ago a worthy citizen the last survivor of the first grand jury his son Warren resides on the Liotine place and his Mother a very old lady resides with him. Nearly All the family Are dead. One daughter resides in Oregon and one in the City. The second settler was Harrison Brooks near or. Latty. I think he sold his claim and made one farther West in Franklin then in 1834. William Richardson made a claim in the Bottom known in late years As the Long farm and m 1836 he was killed on that claim by an irishman named Henry of Hammil it was in on the place now owned by mrs. John k. Long and about claim lines. O Ham Mil bad a gun and swore he would shoot the first Man who stepped Over a certain Furrow or line and Richardson did so and was shot and killed. Or. Alexander Gordon was present with others. Of Hammil was arrested and brought to town and put in jail with Harmut and in a Short time after both escaped and went Down the River in a Canoe and that was the last heard of either. Afterwards Captain Jack a Settle lived on that claim or a part of it. He died there and the family moved to Oregon. Jas. Clark also lived on it for a Short time and then his son in Law Henry Neil who sold to old Man Paul and he or his heirs to Kendall Long. James Gore lived on a part of it also and moved to Oregon with the settles he was a son in Law of old Man Settle and Henry. Josiah and Milton Settle were sons Josiah and Milton moved to Oregon Josiah died in Washington territory and Milton lives in san Jose California. Henry Settle lived on that forty where Richardson was killed South of the Creek. J. Gore lived just n Orth of the Creek and the widow and sons lived Back on the Side Hill where Kendall Long lived for so Many years. South of these places in the Bottom James Lorton son of John Lorton of Dodge Ville had a claim and lived there some sold out and moved West am not certain but that he moved Back to Illinois that place has been owned by the Pauls hartmans and others. Peter Bazel owned part of the Henry Settle claim. Then in the Bottom lived Thos. Gilli Kand and his son John and Eliphalet Conant and i think a Man named Payne. West of the Longs places the place now owned by John f. Foster was claimed by James Hatcher in 1834, and in 1835, he sold the claim to Alex Ander w. Gordon and made a claim at the Point above Kingston known As the Bradley place. He sold that and moved Down on the place Northwest of town the one owned so Long by old or. Ende. Or. Gordon lived of that farm for Many years sold it Anc moved to Oregon sixteen years ago and now resides in Albany Linn county Oregon and i believe he is one of the oldest subscribers for the Gazette As he was always a Democrat South of Jota t. Foster who resided in Benton some years moved to Wapello county but after a few years returnee again lives and has lived for Many years his brother Chilon Foster. South of him lives another very old settler John Burkholder. I knew John when he was a Young Man a Mechanic in town. He married a daughter of col Arthur Inghram built a House just North of .

The Ole gentleman moved Down West of town his son in Law. J. W. Penny resides on that place now and North of Kastern was one of the first claims made. When 1 first knew of it William Edmundson and David Edmundson resided on it but i believe it was the claim made by Harrison Brooks the Edmu Misono a resided there severs years and sold out to Robert d. Pool who resided on that place nearly forty years and was one of the few who vote the whig ticket. His son and son in Law reside there now. Or.
