PERRYVILLE
On June 24, 1848, Stanford Doud, county surveyor, laid out the town of Perryville for Hezekiah Jay and the plat was filed two days later. It shows ninety two lots and a large block, probably intended for a public square. The town was located in the northern part of section 9, township 77, range 21, on the north side of the Des Moines River, a short distance east of where Morgan Valley is now situated. Donnel says that the proprietor endeavored to forestall Baker and Gregory, who laid out the Town of Bennington in the same section the following August. Perryville never prospered and in time the plat was vacated.
