History of Washington Township, Porter County, IN
During the same year, Rufus Van Pool pitched a claim on what is now the Oaks farm. In the fall, the house of this man was destroyed by fire, and he was compelled to move his family back to La Porte County, but returned in the following spring, and remained until the land sale in 1835; after purchasing his claim at the Government price, he sold out to David Oaks. In 1833 or 1834, Jacob Coleman located
and made improvements two miles southeast of Prattville.
