Warren County FYI

Named for Joseph Warren, a Major General of the Massachusetts militia. He was killed at the battle of Bunker Hill.

In choosing the name of the new county seat, 3 commissioners selected the names; from these, three were drawn, which proved to be Isabella, Kosciusko and Monmouth. Kosciusko was drawn, when it was suggested by the commissioner who first selected it, that very few of the inhabitants could spell it correctly, and he moved a drawing of the other two names be made. This was done, and resulted in the name the city now bears.
