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

FAIRVIEW FACTS: Previous to June, 1837, no white man had settled in what afterward became the village of Fairview or in the township of that name. At the date named, Clement Russell, wife and four or five children, originally from the State of New York and last from Michigan, reached the place by wagon, in the search for a permanent location combining both prairie and timber land. Here he fixed his abode, and the aspect was really one of beauty. The prairie, six miles in width, ran east to west, and the sun apparently rising out of the prairie on the east and setting into the prairie on the west.
