Few things have changed Starke County more than floating dredges like the one shown in this photo. Before the 1890's, it was not unusual for most of Starke County to be under water much of the year. Early settlers talked of rowing boats from places like Brems and Hamlet to Knox. Winter actually made getting around easier, because the settlers could walk or skate on the ice.

Numerous ditches have been constructed in Starke County over the years to allow for drainage of the water and reclaiming of the land underneath. According to McCormick’s Guide to Starke County 1902, “The largest ditch constructed, and the one that has reclaimed the most land is the Place, or Kankakee River Ditch. The work of construction was begun in June, 1901, and finished in August, 1902. The ditch was established in the Starke Circuit Court in March, 1901.”

Happy birthday,  Mother Jones!!

Happy birthday, Mother Jones!!

This day 184 years ago – 1 August 1837 – Mary Harris was baptised in Cork (her birthdate is unknown).

Known as Mother Jones, she became one of the most famous union organisers in U.S. history after her family died.

She was once called “the most dangerous woman in America.”
