Rose Divider Bar

Besides sharing the general interest in such a public improvement, the people of Grove township felt that they were especially close to the Western Stage Company--first, because of the Kirk station, and secondly from the fact that one of its citizens became a driver on one of those grand four-horse coaches. The latter was Thomas B. Morrow, one of the first settlers in Grove City. At first he and his brother owned 160 acres of land covering the eastern part of the present city of Atlantic and the county fair grounds. Mr. Morrow subsequently bought a farm on section 18, and raised some of the finest stock in the township.
