      Centennial History of Washington County, Indiana by Warden W. Stevens ( 1967 )

      Chapter XXVIII, Page # 592
      The old Vincennes and Ohio Falls trail passed through Posey Township, and it was along this trail the first white men located within the present borders of the county. Thomas Hopper settled a short distance north of Hardinsburg in 1803.

      Thomas Polson was the first settler in the township located where the old town of Fredricksburg was mapped out. He came in 1805. Polson's cabin was only a short distance from the trail, and he was kept from getting lonesome by occasional bands of Indians, soldiers and adventurerers who passed over the trail, bound for the Falls or Ft. Vincennes.

      Martin Royse and his sons John, William and Martin came early in the spring of 1806. Elijah Harriman and John Butler came into the neighborhood in 1808, Benjamin King a year later.
