    A History of Tama County, Iowa, Vol I, by J.R. Caldwell 
    • The old settlers met August 26, 1898 at Oak Park, Tama. Prof C.E. Locke, superintendent of the Tama public schools, offered the invocation. Mayor S.C. Huber of Tama welcomed the old settlers. President Rogers responded. Music was rendered by a large chorus led by Mrs J.L. Bracken. Col. John Scott delivered the annual address upon the subject "From 1850 to 1865." He referred to the fact that in 1850 there were eight residents in Tama county. Careful inquiry developed the fact that they were the families of Anthony and William Wilkinson who were settled on a farm in Salt Creek township. These lands have been entered upon government warrants given in recognition of Anthony Wilkinson's valiant service in the Mexican war. Colonel Scott was captured with Anthony Wilkinson in 1847 by greasers and confined in a Mexican jail. He first came to Tama county in 1854 and was sheltered in Wilkinson's cabin. From there he went to Butlerville, one of whose citizens was a Butler. At that time lands were selling in Toledo for $5, $8, $12 and maybe $13 per acre, but there was nothing but land and stakes. A sawmill was in operation. He was entertained at the home of Amos B. Hancox, afterward known as the Barlow place. Hancox was a member of the 38th Iowa Infantry. He entered land on that trip in Tama county and afterward he sent an intelligent colored man with his wife and eleven children to farm the land near the Hancox place. This colored man's name was Anthony Waller. His son, John L. Waller, afterward represented the United States at Madagascar. He also referred to what had been done: that there are nine bridges over the Iowa river in Tama county and 800 other bridges in the county; a county home worth $40,000; a court house worth $45,000; a jail worth $10,000. Col. B.W. Wilson of Chelsea spoke in the afternoon. He first saw Tama county when deer ran across the present site of Tama and when the timber was full of skunks and raccoons. He had to go to Iowa City for flour and there were no bridges. Travel was with oxen. Horses were too expensive. There were no railroads nor telegraph lines. Miss Mame Ramsdell recited a poem entitled 'Old Settlers' written by John Ramsdell, one of the early pioneers of the county. L.F. Hammitt, Amos Rogers, W.F. Eshbaugh, G.M. Fee and Hiram Winders addressed the assembly.

      Uncle Hiram said "he was too cute to be an old settler. He preferred to wait until a lot of bridges had been built and other expensive luxuries secured with other people's money. He came to Tama county in 1868." [He had earlier, ca. 1858, migrated to Ogle Co, Illinois from Maryalnd]. Jacob Croskrey was in attendance at this meeting. He came to Tama county October 1, 1854, and settled on a farm southwest of Tama, where he lived ever since. His brother W.H. Croskrey came with him. Joseph came the same year.

  • Notes 
    • According to John H Winder:
      «u»«b»Hiram Winders «/u»«/b» (1836-1910) was born 6 June 1836 in Boonsboro, Washington County and preceded his slightly older cousins in moving to Ogle County by about 10 years, arriving there sometime prior to 1860. In March of 1860 he married «u»Hettie Tice «/u» (born 1 Jan 1837 in Ohio, died 16 Dec 1927, in Toledo, Iowa) and the couple eventually had 6 sons and 3 daughters, whom they raised on the big family farm (720 acres) in Tama County, Iowa, where they moved in 1868. So even before his cousins John and Elias arrived in Illinois, Hiram and his family had moved on further west, to Tama County, Iowa.
      «tab»According to a biographical sketch published in 1910 (A History of Tama County, Iowa, Vol2, edited by J.R. Caldwell), Hiram "worked at wagon making" in Maryland and as a carpenter after he moved to Ogle County, and then moved to Iowa in 1868, becoming a full-time farmer in Highland Township, Tama County (about 150 miles northwest of Ogle County, Illinois.) Hiram died on 26 August 1910 in Toledo (Tama County), Iowa and Hettie died in Toledo on 16 December 1927. [6]
