This county was originally settled by Germans from Pennsylvania, who were a plain and industrious people, and thrifty farmers. In the early they suffered many cruelties and hardships from the Indians and French Colonial Peter Muhlenburg, afterward a general in the revolution, was a Lutheran Minister, and distinguished himself by bravery and cool valor; he settled in this country from Pennsylvania, when quite young. The bones and skeletons of Indian Giants of great size have been dug up in this county, compared with those mentioned in Captain Smith’s history.
