According to authentic records, namely the testimony of Rev. Capt. John Steel, who visited this locality in April, 1768, the following persons were then resident at or near Turkeyfoot:
Henry Abrahams
Ezekiel Dewitt
James Spencer
Benjamin Jennings
John Cooper
Ezekiel Hickman
John Enslow
Henry Enslow
Benjamin Pursley
Some of these “trespassing settlers” doubtless lived within, the bounds of Addison township.
