Beginnings [1]

In the spring of 1834 the settlements in Linn County began springing up. The Indian war having closed, the old settlers began returning to their claims. At this time came John Holland, the founder of Linneus City, familiarly called "Jack." His cabin was built by John Yount and David Curtis on the present site of Linneus. Holland moved into it that spring. William Howell and others had returned, and quite a number of new immigrants began to settle in different parts of the county.
