  • Notes 
    • Sometime during the year 1811, it is believed, William Landiss, with his family, moved from Granville County, North Carolina to Bedford County, Tennessee, to the Landiss settlements on the Duck River. Five years later the family moved on into Indiana.

      John Landis of English, Indiana wrote: "In March, 1816, we, my father, a sister and myself, crossed the Ohio River into Indiana. In August of the same year all the rest of the family followed except one sister, who remained in Tennessee. We crossed the Ohio at Mauk's Ferry and settled in what is now Crawford County, about one quarter of a mile east of the Hazelwood Sulphur Springs and opposite the old burying ground, which was then in Orange County. At that time Orange, Perry and Harrison Counties cornered about a quarter of a mile east of the Sulphur Springs. The country was covered with a dense forest and there were only three families that composed the settlement."
