      (4) History of Wayne and Clay Counties, Illinois, Chicago, IL: Globe Publishing Co., 1884, Part II, pp. 323, 324, 333, 336, 337, 470:

      A road was ordered cut out on the most eligible route from James Elliott's house to George Goble's mill on the Little Wabash, and from thence to the Fayette County line to Asa Ledbetter's. To this work was assigned James Leavitt, William Daniel and George Goble. . . .

      For the October Circuit Court, 1825, the following were designated as grand jurors: Isaac Brady, Isaac Elliott, Ephraim Haines, Benjamin Campbell, William Hargis, Basil Daniel, William Daniel, Levi Sceif, Francis Harman, Levi Daniel, William Smith, Isaac Romine, Andrew Evans, James Richerson, Seth Evans, John Jeffries, C. D. Worthen, James Leavitt, William Nash, Elisha Anglin, William Binion, John Miller, Sr., and Jacob Perkey. . . .

      The grand jurors for the April term, 1826, of the Circuit Court, were as follows: Levi Jordan, Enoch Wilcox, Ephraim Haines, Alexander Rogers, John Goble, Leonard Melton, William Melton, William Daniel, Benjamin Bishop, William Hargis, Francis Harman, John Bishop, James Leavitt, Isaac Romine, Joseph Brimhall, William Smith. . . .

      All voters residing north of Hurricane Creek, and northwest of Muddy Fork and northeast of William Smith's were authorized to hold their elections at the house of Samuel G. Weatherspoon, " formerly occupied by George Goble, it being at or near Goble's Mill," and Thomas Leavitt, George Riley and Basil Daniel were appointed Election Judges. . . .

      The new names that appear in the grand jury list for the October term, 1826, of the Circuit Court gave it interest enough to publish it in full as follows: Levi Self, Benjamin Bishop, Basil Daniel, John Goble, Thomas Leavitt, Thomas Nichols, Seth Evans, Alexander Rogers, George Riley, George Faris, William Webb, John Jeffard, Elisha Anglin, David Moore, Marcus Wilson, John Evans, James Nelson, Sr., Andrew Evans, Jacob Perkey, Philip Devore, William Smith, Levi Daniel, John Binion and Daniel Evans. . . .

      The county was divided in two voting precincts, and James Embrey, Mathias Meisenheimer and Thomas Nichols were appointed Judges of the south district, and James Leavitt, Hackley Sams and Enos Johnson, Judges of the north district. . . .

      East of this (Sailor Springs) was the James Leavitt settlement. This was a very early settlement. His brother Noah lived there. James Leavitt had sons, John and Obadiah. John died there, and Obadiah went West. . . .

      . . . August 3, 1833, Thomas Leavitt [was married] to Parmelia Stallings, by Squire S. B. Curbow. . . .

      At the October term, 1839, G. B. Shelledy's name appears on the record as an attorney. At this term of the court, John Service was tried for assault with intent to commit murder, and sentenced to one year. The order sentencing him says: "There being no Sheriff of the county at this time, the Coroner be allowed to take with him as guard to convey the defendant to the penitentiary two persons," etc. The jury in this case were Robert Scoggs, Richard G. Sorrells, George Baity, John Collasure, John Bullard, Daniel Evans, James Riley, John L. Apperson, James Leavitt, William Sneed, James Ano and William L. Lankston. . . .

      The first white settler in Pixley Township was James Levitt, who came here from Posey County, Ind., about 1826, and settled on Section 21, on the old Louisville & Vincennes Road, near where Buckville, afterward called Pleasant Hill, now stands. He was a good farmer, and at one time a well-to-do man; he died here, and his descendants are yet living in the township. A brother of James Levitt, named Noah Levitt, came here shortly afterward. He was a restless man, and moved from place to place; finally died in this township. . . .

      The following is a copy from the entry book, showing the names of men who entered land between the years 1833 and 1843:
