Download Reminiscences Of Quincy Illinois books, Excerpt from Reminiscences of Quincy, Illinois: Containing Historical Events, Anecdotes, Matters Concerning Old Settlers and Old Times, Etc Almost, since the Settlement at Jamestown, Va., in 1607, and the subsequent landing and more permanent Settlement of the Pilgrims at Plymouth in 1620, there has grown to be a laudable custom in America to preserve more or less extensive histories of the early times, old stories, and matters of supposed interest pertaining to such particular localities as challenge the allegiance and the affections of pioneer people. If the histories of Rome go back to Romulus and Remus, why may not our earliest settlers, such as John Wood and Willard Keyes, figure in the history of Quincy. Rome at the end of the first fifty years after her first Settlement was no larger than Quincy is now. In writing this short history of Quincy, 1 can not reasonably expect to avoid such errors as seem predestined to creep into every book. Though this book will most probably be read by but few outside of our own city and county, I desire to preserve in it, some matters of a wider range. Who was the first white man that visited the spot now covered by our city? Of course this inquiry does not relate to prehistoric times. The question of who were the mound builders, what people buried their dead upon our Mount Pisgah -the high mound through which Maine Street was opened to the river - and other high points along the river bluffs, I leave for others to explain. Historically, we know that Marquette, the French-man and Roman Catholic Ecclesiastic, discovered the upper Mississippi river, passed down this river, and passed the present site of Quincy (whether he landed here or not we do not know) about July, 1673.
