    Local History  Tampico TownshipPortrait & Biographical Album of Whitside Colorado. 1885TAMPICO TOWNSHIPThis township lies on the south line of the county, with Bureau County forming its southern boundary. It is exclusively a prairie township, a postion of it being rolling and well drained, while the remainder is flat, and much of it originallycovered with water.The big slough, north of the village of Tampico, was for years almost impassable. For a large portion of the year it was covered with water from one to two miles in width. in 1862 the slough was piked, and in 1863-64 the county ditch was dug,draining this land to a considerable extent.Being prairie land, and much of it covered with water, prevented this early settlement of the township. The first to make this section their home were Hiram Tompkins, John and Nicholas Lutyens and Jacob Barney, in 1852. A beginning having beenmade, others came in from time to time. Among those denominated as pioneers were George W. Curtis, Aaron S. Miller, Rev. Wm. Gray, Wm. Aldrich, Rufus Aldrich, James Conroy, Daniel Foy, J.C. Aldrich, John W. and T.A. Glassburn, J.P. Badgley andA.M. Smith.Nicholas Lutyens doubtless erected the first house in 1852, on section 27. John Lutyens located on section 28. They were from the State of New York, but of German descent. John long since moved away, but Nicholas yet resides on the old homestead.Hiram Tompkins was also from New York. He located on section 33, where he remained until about 1857, when he moved away and his wherebouts are unknown.Jacob Barney came from Canada and located on section 26. He remained in the township some years and then moved to Sheffield, Bureau Colorado., Illinois, where he has since died.Geo. W. Curtis came to this township from the Fox River Valley, but was originally from New York. After remaining here some years, he moved into Hume Township, where he yet resides.Aaron S. Miller was from TompkinsCo., New York He yet resides in the county.Rev. Wm. Gray was a Protestant Methodist minister from Bradford Colorado., Penn. He yet resides about two miles south of the village.Daniel Foy was originally from Cattaraugus County, New York , but came to this county from McDonnough Colorado., Illinois, locating first in Prophetstown, but moving into Tampico in 1853, and locating on section 29. He was Supervisor severalyears, and also held the office of Justice of the Peace some years. in 1884 he moved to ks.The Aldriches were from Bradford Colorado., Pa. William came in 1854, Rufus in 1855 and J.C. in 1856. They are yet excellent citizens. See sketch on page 742 (in Portrait and Biographical Album of Whiteside County - 1885).John W. and T.A. Glassburn were brothers from Ohio. They are yet well-known, enterprising citizens of the township, biographical sketches of whom are given elsewhere in this volume.The first birth in the township was that of Emma, daughter of Rufus and Mary A. Aldrich, born October 23, 1855.Mrs. Baker, a daughter of Jacob Barney, died in the summer of 1856, the first in the township.The first marriage was that of Eleary C. Brown and Susan Gray, in 1857, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Wm. H. Gray, the father of the bride.in 1866, when there were but a few people yet residing here, a school-house was erected in the Aldrich neighborhood, in which Orlando McNickel taught the term of school. The township was subsequently divided into districts and school-houses wereerected at various points. There are now six whole and three joint districts, with seven good school-houses in the township, the estimated value of which are $8,9000. For the year ending June 30, 1884, there were 348 persons of school age, with anenrollment of 264. During the year $2,672 were paid out to teachers. The highest wages paid was $70 per month, and the lowest $12.50. The tax levy was $2,550. School is held in each district from seven to nine months in the yeArkansas The townshipfund amounts to $14,480.88.Rev. Mr. Pinkney, a Methodist Episcopal minister, was the first to preach the gospel in this township. The first services were held in the Aldrich School-house shortly after its erection. Rev. Wm. H. Gray, a Protestant Methodist, came next. Thereare now three Church organizations all in the village of Tampico.Tampico was behind no other in sending her sons forth to fight in the War of the Rebellion. Every call was responded to and its quota promptly filled.The township in 1870 voted to subscribe for stock in the Grand Trunk Railway, to the amount of $20,000. Bonds were issued in March, 1871, and of the amount $4,000 was to be paid in five years, the remainder in equal installments annuallythereafter, the whole to paid in ten years. The amount was all paid several years ago, and the township is now out of debt.When the township organization law was adopted, Tampico was given its name, but the eastern half was attached to Hopkins and the west half to Prophetstown until such time as it would have a sufficient number of inhabitants to organize a seperategovernment. This was not until 1861. The first election was held April 2, 1861, resulting in the election of the following named: Daniel Foy, Supervisor; E.C. Brown, Clerk; Rufus Aldrich, Assessor; John P. Badgley, Collector; Joseph Rainer,Justice of the Peace.Supervisors1861-63: Daniel Foy1864: J.C. Aldrich1865: Daniel Foy1866-69: G.A. Stilson1870-73: J.C. Aldrich1874-75: M.H. Brewer1876-77: T.M.
