Founder Cottonville 1856

Cottonville was founded when Emulous Plutarch Cotton settled in Preston township in 1856. A plat was filed in 1857 at the Adams County Register of Deeds office by E. P.'s brother Julius for an 11-block village of Roche-A-Cree, which would become known as Cottonville. The Cotton family built a home, dam and sawmill on the Big Roche-a-Cri Creek. Julius and his son, Edgar, left the area before the onset of the Civil War. E. P. later became the postmaster of Cottonville and held various Preston township offices. He died in 1888, and is buried in the Cottonville cemetery.
