The first settlement in what is now Rubicon township was made in 1826, by Thomas Piper, a native of Kentucky. From his native state he removed to Indiana in an early day, and resided there until coming to Greene county. He settled on section 10, this township, where he lived until overtaken by the hand of death. He had a wife and five children when he came here.

Israel Piper, a son of Thomas, came with him. He was, at this time, a young man, having been born in 1813, in Kentucky. He helped his father for a time, but in 1833, was united in marriage with Louisa Fair, and started out for himself. He was a resident of this township until his death, which occurred Sept. 5, 1850.
