    • (1) J. Douglas Sailor :

      The following appears in the history of Elkhart County, Indiana:

      "Olive Township in Elkhart County, Indiana, is in the western part of the county. This township was organized in the spring of 1836 by Cornelius Terwillinger, Jacob Sailor, Frederick Morris, Samuel and Levi Martin, and David Allen. Of the above named persons, Jacob Sailor was the first settler here, having arrived in the early part of 1834. The first election in the township was held in April 1837 at the home of Issac Morris. The voters were Daniel Michael, Jacob Sailor, Sr., Jacob Sailor, Jr., Samuel Martin, Moses Sailor, William Sailor, Cornelius Terwillinger, James Dodge, Issac Morris, Aaron Medders, and Frederic Morris. The latter three were sons-in-law of Jacob. "

      A bronze plaque in the Elkhart County Historical Museum in Bristol, Indiana commemorates Jacob Sailor as the first settler in Olive Township, Elkhart County.
