Johnson of Oodfrey and Attorney and Mrs. John F. Gibbons of this 1 city. Attorney Gibbons and wife transferred property to Mrs. Johnson described as lot 4 and 5 of block 2 in Shephard',1 Second Addition to the City of Jerseyville, for $1 and other considerations Including 120 acres of land known as the Hussey Lake property, The Hussey Lake originated a number of years ago when the late Frank Hussey of Alton constructed a dam of concrete across the mouth of one of the principal hoi- lows of that part of Otter Creek township. A quarter of a mile above the dam were a number of never failing spj-mgs, and these supplied the wnler wftirh the dam impounded and covered an area ex- lending at times as much as 15 acres. >* Spent Weekends There Hussey was an instructor in social science at Boumont High School, St. Louis, and spent most of his weekends at Hussey Lake and much of the summer vacation at his home there. He acquired a large acreage of the wooded, broken land and his ambition prior to his death was to extend his holding to 1,500 acres, lie had planned to fence this area and restore the place to its original status. He Was also negotiating for the purchase of small herd of buffalo to be imported lo the place. Hussey's plans were never fulfilled as he suffered an attack of influenza and pneumonia from which he died. Following his death, his holdings in Otter Creek township passed inlo possession of others. Before his death, Hussey did muflh research into the history of the lo cality where the lake he created still bears his name. A short distance above the dam one may still find the remains of an old mill dam that at one time impounded water for propelling the mill that stood adjacent to it. This was one of the first grist mills in the early settlement of Jersey County. A few hundred yards from the grass grown mill dam, one may still find the remains of one of the lost villages of this part of Illinois. A quarter of a century ago, a few of the logs of the cabins that stood there and much of the'rock used for fireplaces and chimneys could still be found. The village must have consisted of at least 30 'or more cabins and store houses^ and flourished as a community center prior to the time of the Mexican War. Hid Horses In the pre Civil War period, the area was the scene f>t much ac- livily. It was in this locality that meetings of the Knights of The Golden Circle was held. Here, too. during Ihe Civil War, southern sympathizers hid horses that were being smuggled south for use by Conloredale forces. Research also reveals that it was in this vicinity that two horse thieves wore caught with a number of horses that had been stolen in Greene, Jersey, and Calhotin coun- SAMPLE BALLOT Village of Bethalto, County of Madison, State of Illinois Election, Tuesday, April 21, I9,i3 LOUIS K.
