E.A. Dalrymple's Father and Mother Chauncy Dalrymple and Lydia Heddy, First in County.


Tells of the Old Road That Ran From St Joseph Through Savannah and Maryville Into Iowa

E.A. Dalrymple, whose parents, Chauncy Dalrymple and Lydia Headdy, were the first couple married in Nodaway county after it was organized, was born in Nodaway township in sight of where that county [sic, township] corners with Polk and Union.

"My father took up his land before the section lines were laid," says Mr Dalrymple, "or a least before we had any exact knowledge of where they ran. When an accurate survey was finally made it was found that father had land in four fourties. He had settled right on the line of two sections.

"Afterwards he sold out and came down into Polk township, acquiring considerable land. He got out on the prairie this time, but the first time he was in the edge of the timber, as were all the first settlers. We had no fences, I remember, until after I was big enough to help split rails.

"We were on the old road to Iowa. It ran from St Joseph to Savannah, then to Maryville and up the divide between the One Hundred and Two and the Nodaway rivers to the state line.

"It crossed the state line into Iowa at a point about where H.E. Bradley's farm now shows on the map and a short distance on the other side divided, one road going to Clarinda, and the other to old Hawleyville. There was some travel down the other side of the White Cloud [River], but most of it came through Maryville.

"One incident of my boyhood that I recollect distinctly was when my brother and myself found an immense elk horn. We had been out after the cattle and ran onto this in the grass two or three miles from home. We had been used to finding deer horns, but this was a new one to us.

"Well, we carried it home - and it was quite a load, too, and father immediately said it was an elk's horn. He cut some of the prongs off and used it for a gun rack and I think it was still about the house when he died.

"There had been no elk in this country for a great many years previous to even that early date, I think, and the horn had probably been out there in the grass for a long time before we found them."
