The dates at which the towns of the county were laid out are given below. Except in the case of Deerfield, the dates were all obtained from official records It will be borne in mind that these dates refer not to the first settlement of the locality, nor to the springing-up of a village, but to the regular survey and platting of the town-site. In some cases, villages had grown up long before

there was any regular division of the site into lots, streets and alleys. In other cases, the proposed town has never been built, and its site to-day is a field or a road crossing:
