HENRY STONE, BEAR GROVE TOWNSHIP.
Henry Stone, another of the original trustees, had only resided in the township a little over a year previous to his election. He was a Connecticut farmer, and a few years after his marriage migrated to Henderson county, Ill., where for a long time he farmed rented lands. When he came to Bear Grove township he settled on an "eighty" which he had purchased in section 1, and afterward became the proprietor of a fine 160-acre farm. Despite his short residence Mr. Stone was already popular with the ten voters of the township, who, as will be seen, chose him to be both trustee and assessor.
