jln August, ,1855, JcsscHewcll,, in
company with Jos. Fitsimons nnd oth
ers from Iowa, was passing through the
Territory of Kansas, "looking at the
counlrv," with a view of settling at no
distant day some where within "its
boundaries. Among tho points that-j
attracted the favorable notico'of Mr.
Newell, the present sitoof p&knlobsa,
was tho most prominent. But the
fckurns" in this region were already
nearly all taken by "squatters," and his
circumstances being such as to prevent
his cither taking or purchasing a
claim just a'tthat'time, Mr. Newell, re-,

on his first visit to Kansas conceived
the idea of'laying out a "town herp.
though he saiiTnolhing to his comrades
about it, ho determined to sell his farm,
as soon as a favorable opportunity pre
sented, which he did during tho, follow
ing winter., unending to remove to
Kansas the ensuing spring." n
On the 16th alay of May, 1050, Jesse
Newell nnd Joseph Fitsimons arrived
bere with their!. families. Mr. Nowcll
bought James Noble's claim,and moved
into his cabin, and Mr. Fitsimons camp
ed on tho prairie some where near whnt
is now tho Public Square. The latter
soon h afterward purchased a claim ad
joining Jlr. Nawclla, a portion of which
ho still owns.
, During that summer Mr.MNeweli
erected nud put in' operation on tho West
sidoof the present village.near a spring
which he lmd found in '55,a good steam
saw mill. In July of'lhc same season,
Mr. Njjmd Mr.'F. laid off. about forty
acres of ground between them, into
blocks, lots, streets and alleys,and gave
it'tho name of Oakaloosa; but owiug to
the troubles and difficulties of that limo
