Type Summary
Text THE erection of Deer in 1796 has been spoken of. As formed in 1805 the northern boundary of Indiana extended eastward to the mouth of Bull creek. The territory of Deer, as thus reduced, was divided in 1836, under the respective names of East and West Deer. Later in the same year the former was enlarged by the annexation of that part of the present area south of the northern line of Indiana extended, including Springdale township. Fawn and Harrison were also comprised within its limits.
