A town being "laid out" was the term used when a piece of ground was divided into lots, streets and alleys. A law of the Northwest Territory was passed in 1800, which required the proprietor or proprietors of all towns so laid out to have an accurate plat or map thereof recorded in the recorders office of the county where the same is situated.
The dates that are given in the following do not necessarily reflect the settlement of the locality, nor of the origination of a village, but of the regular survey and the platting of the town. The names or set- tlements of the towns are arranged in alhabetical order. Some have the names of the original proprietors, and number of lots in the original town plat along with some additional information. Many of these locations are just place names in the county. This writer has found information on 79 of these settlements.
