Sentinel and written by Charles Charley Baldwin of Nashville. The exact published dates of many of these articles are unknown; however, the few dates that are noted it appears these were published between and Baldwin, provided some background information about his father: " Charles was the oldest son of R. Baldwin who was one of the pioneers in the fruit growing industry. His farm was located just west of Irvington.

Dad was born inso his experiences would have covered the period prior to the turn of the century until about It was interesting to note that during this period, the harvesting, which was labor intensive, consisted, to a large extent, of the "Hoboes. Many were well educated which always surprised me.

They had a code among them that they lived by and their differences were settled by their own rules. This led to the ultimate demise of the entire fruit growing industry in Washington County. It is certain that it crossed the northern part of what is now Washington county and possibly the southern tip of Marion county near Walnut Hill. He probably followed the old Vincennes Trace blazed by the French in the 's. Charles G. Baldwin, Nashville florist and boyhood resident of Irvington has devoted considerable time to putting a few scattered records together and drawing reasonable deductions as to the location of the historic route.

Following are a articles under the banner of "Looking Back" appearing in the Centralia Ill. Transcribed, edited and furnished by : Jo House. In Charley's son, J. By Charles Baldwin It was almost 50 years ago that I first became interested in locating the exact trail used by Clark and his troops when they marched on the British at Vincennes. I was attending McKendree college, inand the president of the school, a Mr. Chamberlin, was doing some research for the Illinois State Historical society.

As I was from Irvington, he asked me if I had any information on the location of the trail, in relation to the present city of Centralia. I told him that my grandfather, who had settled land near Irvington inhad some definite ideas on the famous march.

Grandfather's farm was located a quarter of a mile north of a famous landmark, "The Lone Richview IL wife swapping which in turn was about a mile southwest of the present curve of the highway where Route 51 it turns west into Irvington. Grandfather said that Clark's band ate a noon meal at that tree.

On another occasion he took me to a spot south of Walnut Hill and pointed out a slash through the wooded country which he said was the George Rogers Clark Trace.

It could plainly be seen from the high ground where the Bates peach orchard now stands. It led off in the direction of Lone Elm. That gave me two points on the line of march. Several years later, inI received a letter from Homer Hosner of Nashville, who was a practicing attorney in Washington, D. He said that in going through some old records he came across a report of the expedition which mentioned "camping on the North Fork of Grand Point Creek.

Taking into consideration the logical inference that Clark would shun the lowlands because of the high water; would travel across the prairie rather than through the woods, it would seem that Clark travelled the divide between the Okaw and Big Muddy rivers, running southwest between Irvington and Richview. I figure that Clark made his camp very close to the present location of Grand Point church. If you draw a line from the church past "The Lone Elm" destroyed in a cyclone in '96 and Richview IL wife swapping northeast to the visible trace near Walnut Hill, it would cross the highway east of Irvington just about at the curve.

So, if the historical society ever gets the notion again of putting up a plaque on a hard road marking the path of Clark and his soldiers, I vote for a spot about a hundred yards north of the Route 51 curve east of Irvington.

The Centralia Sentinel has given me the happy task of touching up in a series of friendly stories, the highlights in the stately history of Washington County -- the intimate little details, episodes and happenings, that are too local for more than passing mention by the historians. The asment, which involves a study of the times -- the men who lived then -- and the incidents hold for me an absorbing interest.

I can only hope I may be able to convey that interest to the reader. But first a bit of background is necessary. The records show for instance, that the first white man to die in the county met his death a full two years before the first white man came to settle in it. So in painting that background I'll go on back to the French settlements of years ago. The French established a civilization and a delightful culture in the American Bottoms. Along the nearby bluffs running south from Belleville, they built their homes and planted acre after acre of grapes.

From these vineyards they turned out wine equal, if not superior, to those of southern France. They built their homes of stone or brick -- many are standing today -- and under each was a vaulted carefully-ventilated wine-cellar ten to 12 feet deep. Then the British took the territory away from them. I can't help but feel -- with the soil, the climate, the know-how and those wine cellars -- Southern Illinois lost a gigantic industry to California when Johnnie Bull took over.

In the year interval, between the Revolutionary War and the formation of the United States, Virginia claimed all the land now in the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin and called it one of her counties. Patrick Henry, governor at that time, sent General George Rogers Clark with men down the Ohio river to take possession, and he did. During the next 25 years he crossed and criss-crossed Washington County perhaps a dozen times. Soon after the Richview IL wife swapping was formed Virginia ceded this territory to the Federal Government and a huge surveying program got under way in preparation for settlement.

In Congress made one of its many divisions, lopping off the land now in Illinois and Wisconsin and calling it the Territory of Illinois. Ninian Edwards was named as the governor. Now to go back a couple of years, Asa Fletcher, 29 years old, was the first white man to die in Washington county. While at work with a government surveying crew, July 13,in what is now Lively Grove township, down in the southwest corner of the county, he was bitten by a rattlesnake and died less than two hours later. He was buried "on the first hill south of Mud Creek" probably over the line in Perry county.

The first settler came two years later -- John Lively and his brother-i--law David Huggins, with their families. They settled first -- maybe squatted is a better word -- near where young Fletcher met his death, but moved the next year to a location about two miles west of New Minden. And here the following year, the Lively family, with the exception of a half-grown boy, was massacred by Indians.

But that is a story in its own right. Somewhere back there, before Governor Edwards took over in Illinois Territory, two counties had been organized, St. Clair, embracing some 80 present counties north of a line drawn through New De, a sort of socialistic settlement four miles south of Waterloo and probably along our south county line, and the county of Randolph which took in the 20 remaining south end counties, Washington county which then embraced Clinton county also, was organized Jan.

In a Doctor William H. Barbsy settled on the west side of the timber on Crooked creek about two miles south of the Okaw river. This became quite a little settlement and as it was near the center of the new county, it was made the county seat under the name of Covington. Barbsby must have been a man of many parts for he was a farmer, a doctor, the county clerk, the circuit clerk and probate Richview IL wife swapping, surveyor, postmaster, treasurer -- when there was any money. And our fist state representative. Others have to work all their lives.

It's that way with the present owners of real estate in Washington county. They just do not know how lucky they were in the choice of an Uncle who knew how to survey their land for them way back there. Uncle Sam had a system. First, he established a base line and a meridian which he set at right angles to each other. Onto these he fastened townships six miles square.

Then he checkered-boarded these townships into 36 sections each a mile square. Finally, he divided these sections into 18 forties, each in form of a square. And these forties are the units of land measure, all snuggled up against one another without loss of time or space. That system has saved Washington countians hundreds of headaches and thousands of dollars. Contrast that condition with the jam parts of St.

Clair and Randolph counties are in -- those parts occupied by the French when they dominated the territory.
