Petition to Change the Name of Mosquito County to Harrison County and to Alter Its Boundaries, 1844

Petition to Change the Name of Mosquito County to Harrison County and to Alter Its Boundaries, 1844

Date
1844-03-06
Description
Petition by the citizens of Mosquito County to change the county's name to Harrison. The petitioners called the name Mosquito "unpleasant." While the petition itself does not explain the idea behind the name "Harrison," it likely was meant to honor the late President William Henry Harrison, who died in 1841. The territorial legislative council did indeed change the name of Mosquito County in 1845, but it was to Orange, not Harrison.
