     In March, 1806, Thomas Stroud became the first settler in Crawford County. He
 settled on Clear Creek in the northeastern part of Crawford County, not far from the
 Orange County line. Several families, in 1807, settled on Big Blue River near the eastern
 boundary of the county. “Big Springs” is on Whiskey Run near the Buffalo Trace. It
 appears that these settlers came over the Fredonia, the Big Blue River and the Buffalo
 Trace and settled near the rangers’ camp on the Buffalo Trace. The Buffalo Trace
 rangers who patrolled the Trace east from their camp near the corner of Crawford,
 Orange, Washington and Harrison counties were in the charge of John Tipton who later
 took a fighting part in the battle of Tippecanoe, become a general of the Indiana state
 militia and still later a United States senator from Indiana. Traces in the Crawford
 County ran from the Ohio River to this camp and thus the junction of the traces became
 a place of more than ordinary pioneer importance.
