Salem Bend History

You are located in the NW quarter of Section 2 of Madison Township.
From atlases and information we have on hand it looks like it was farmed until at least 1900.

The 1st landowner was Robert Wilson who purchased the entire section Aug 9, 1809.

In 1820 taxes were paid by (and probably owned by) John Ehrstine.
1851 it was still owned by John Ehrstine.
1869 it was owned by John Denlinger, 53 acres
1875 it was owned by John Denlinger, 63 acres
1895 it was owned by John M. Baker., 67 3/4 acres

I have a couple of more sources to check and hopefully I can find some more recent info
You are in the area of what was known as Taylorsburg – not an official platted settlement but they actually had a post office for a while, 1888-1915.
