Fayette County Census of 1860
Westfield Township


....1875 Map;  by this time the railroads were crossing Fayette County and there was significant population growth an development.  In 1860, although there was several thousands settlers in the County there was still a large amount of unclaimed, uncleared, unbroken land.  This was a time of rapid movement into the county and the claiming of new farms for many settlers, however nearly all manufactured commodities and supplies were still being brought in from the Mississippi River port of Dubuque, with a small amount from McGregor and up from the Cedar Rapids area to the south.  By the time of the above map in 1875 all areas had been settled and developed, major communities were developing and the rapid rail movement of human commodities was revolutionizing the culture of the area.

1860 Census of Westfield Township


The First Pioneers

---Pioneers in Fayette County Before 1850
....Between 1840 and 1850 there were people who lived in Fayette county, for a while at least, whose names did not appear in the census list recently printed in the column for 1858. Most of those folks had moved away by 1850. A few who continued to live here may have been skipped by the census taker. The names of some of such earlier settlers may be found by searching the history of Fayette county, published in 1878. Others may be secured from a series of twenty-eight newspaper articles, "Fayette County in the Forties" contributed by T.D. Peterman to the West Union Argo in 1901. Those works were written while folks were still living who could remember back to those earlier years.

In the Beginning of Fayette County


....There were 154 families shown on Prices 1850 census of Fayette County.
....Fayette County is 6 townships wide and 6 townships "tall." Each township is 6x6 miles or 36 square miles per township. Total square miles in Fayette County therefore is 36x36 or 1296 square miles, which when divided by the 154 families mean there was only one family for every 8.5 square miles in 1850.  There were no actual towns developed, only couple of merchants and craftsman located together near future town locations.
....Not all of these families were farming, as one of the first tradesman to follow farmers into a pioneer area are millwrights who would set up sawmills on the Turkey and Volga Rivers. Plus traders and merchants were always pushing into the frontier. Assuming about 100 of the families were setting up farming claims and perhaps attempting to plow or pasture 60 acres each, which would probably be generous at this early date, only one growing season after the land was officially opened to farmers, only 6000 acres of the 83000 acres in Fayette County were being farmed. Within ten years, by the 1860 census,  almost every inch of the county would start to be exploited in some fashion by the rush for land and a living on the frontier.

---The first Villages in the County---The early platted villages in Fayette county were: West Union-June 1850, Westfield-July 1851, Auburn-1851, Volga City (Lima)-Oct 1851, Taylorsville-Feb 1852, West Auburn-Sept 1853, Centerville (adjoining Taylorsville)-May 1854, Albany-July 1854, Elgin-Feb 1855, Fayette-June1855.


Some notes on Upper Iowa University, at Fayette

....The 1860 census lists a number of Upper Iowa University students living within the village of Fayette/Westfield. Upper Iowa opened in 1857 for students, but in the first years of growth the numbers remained small.  The Seminary building was started in 1855, with the first floor ready for occupation by late 1856.  
....The Seminary building was constructed by local craftsman, quite a number of whom came to Fayette specifically to work on the building, especially the stone masons as the Seminary building was a major construction right on the edge of the frontier with absolutely no local industry in place to support such a feat.  
....Initially the university of conceived in 1854/5 by the Roberston's and Alexander's both as a family endeavor to support education, but more importantly for economic speculation and gain, as the two families owned nearly all of the prime land around the Fayette/Westfield valley area. Robert Alexander was one of the very first to claim land in the newly opened are north of the Neutral Ground line in 1849, building the first mill at today's Klock's Island, and within six years a university would start.


....The vision of the first building was simply a much smaller construction of hewn timbers and rough cut boards.  After John West arrived in 1856 to head up the construction it apparently was obvious to him that the local limestone beds might be utilized for a much more elaborate construction of huge limestone blocks.  His ideas were more costly but after apparently a short deliberation with the Robertson's and Alexander's the present project as we know it started by the summer of 1855.  As no local industry was in place, limestone quarry areas had to be located.  A major lime kiln was put into operation to supply lime for the making of lime mortar and plaster.  Lumberman, sawyer's, stone masons,  blacksmiths, carpenters, teamsters, laborers had to be advertised for and rapidly moved to the newly platted village of Fayette, in the control of the Robertson's.  Along with the buiding of the university was an increase in farming activity, craftsman, merchants.
....Many of the first families to take up permanent, long term settlement in Westfield Township came by 1860, some to farm, some like GGGrandfather Reuben Sr. Hunt, a master head stone mason, to work the new College building.
....The early development of a  University at Fayette  in the frontier times had significant positive impact on the quality of life in the county, drawing improved economics, social and genetic base into the area very early in its development.

....
Additional notes and information has been inserted.  Families were generally sensed by a in a sequence of some type, often by the census taker riding back and forth, east and west on a north south pattern through a county or township.  The point being, families near each other in the numbering sequence are living in close proximity, on an east/west pattern.  Within town, the census takers would simply walk the platted streets in a pattern attempting to locate any households living in more remote areas.

The Hunt family migrated directly from New York State in 1855 to work on the College. He would build a small frame house on several lots of land purchases from the Robertson's, at the base of the hill coming down into Fayette (College Hill) from the south and on the east side of the road. In 1856 he brought his family from New York to Iowa to stay for good.  Eventually he added to the house and build a major brick house in the area. Later his son Reuben Wrench Hunt would farm the land on the bottoms and hillside to the SE of Fayette. After Reuben finished his work on the Seminary he traveled to Ames to be be a lead mason on a number of the first Iowa State University buildings, then to return to Fayette to live out his live as an area stone mason, building number of the larger cut limestone buildings in the area.  Fayette would then become the hometown of the Hunt family until the death of his Great-grandson, Walter Reuben Hunt, who farmed 180 acres along the Big Rock Road, just north and east of Fayette, until he died in 1977, the last of the Hunt Clan in Fayette.  All of Reuben Sr's sons would become mason's as well as farmers and teachers.  Many families however, listed in the 1860 census would move on to other locations. Reuben would become a head stone mason of the Seminary project

....GGGrandfather Samuel 1 Andrew Thompson grew up in Carroll County, Ohio.  In his mid 20's he removed by ox wagon with at least two of his brothers and made original claim to land 2 miles west of Taylorsville in Fairfield Twp, in 1854.  During the next couple of year's Samuel claimed land in various locations around Fayette County, some on the far side just north of Fairbanks, as well as around West Union and Elgin.  Eventually all of his ten siblings would end up in Fayette County, centering around the Brush Creek (Arlington) area but also locating north around Fayette, West Union, Elgin and Wadea.  Samuel would die in 1865 on a journey back to Ohio, and be buried in Allen Family Cemetery, apparently to escort his parents Zach 1 Caleb and Priscilla Albaugh Thompson to Iowa.  His parents would make the journey immediately after Samuel's burial and farm the remainder of their lives on 120 acres of land originally claimed by their son's immediately to the SE of the Six-corner's Intersection at the south edge of Brush Creek (Arlington).  The farm listed above in 1860 was in the SW 1/4 of Section 36, Westfield Twp.  This is the extreme SE corner of the township. Samuel was also owned other land in the Fayette, Wadena, Brush Creek triangle.

....Richard Earl was a miller and farmer.  My 1865 he would acquire several hundred acres around the southern rim of hills at Albany, plus buy out the original Albany mill and then build one the biggest mill and mill dams  on the Volga River. Farmers traveled for miles to the Albany mill to have flour ground because of the reputation of the mill.  Like many big mills, Earl's mill ground grist (grain) and also sawed rough cut lumber utilizing water power.  Grain was often ground at night as flour production took significant time.  Mills needed millers and sawyers so attracted other families, plus craftsman such as blacksmiths, carpenter, leather workers, coopers, merchants.  The village of Albany and adjacent Lima were very prosperous pioneer towns during the early decades of development, with the big mills being a strong drawing card.  By the late 1860's there was an adjacent chair "factory" which shipped chairs and furniture by ox cart and eventually by rail when the railroad came just north of Albany in about 1874. The Earl family remains in Fayette County today, with many of the relative moving into the Fayette area as Albany declined in the 1900's.  At the time of the 1860 census the Earl's were milling and farming the northern part of Section 23, Westfield Twp, adjacent to the southern part of Albany.

....Hiram Marvin built a mill about a mile upstream or to the SW of Albany near the shear bluffs as the Volga came around a bend.  Hiram would trade Albany mill and farm for land near Fayette, and with his son Joseph would build a unique mill powered by the wind, which would sit just to the north and east of the present day bridge (2000) in Fayette.  Joseph and the Marvin family would run a flour steam mill in this location until the 1940's, specializing the grinding of buckwheat flour.  The son's of Lloyd Marvin donated the remains of the steam mill to the Old Thrasher's of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and a nearly total recreation of the buckwheat mill is in place, utilizing much of the old machinery, in one of the big metal museum buildings on their ground, and available for tour.  At the time of the 1860 census the Marvin family was milling and farming in the SW1/4 of Section 23, in Westfield Twp.
