Cass Township
The 1854 census included columns for "Colored Males" and "Colored Females," but none were listed for any of the townships.

CASS FACTS: This township is north of Fairview, and, though not the earliest settled, comprises a portion of the best farming land in the county. The south portion is considerably broken, and is principally timber-land, and a small district in north is likewise hilly and uneven. The central portion is a beautiful prairie district, almost entirely level or slightly undulating. There were but few settlers in the township until the year 1854, and the population increased rapidly after that time.
