West Virginia History, Vol. 1 History of West Virginia and the People Chapter XXIX Big Sandy River Region: "The first land survey was made within this county, as now constituted, by George Washington, in October, 1770, and it contained a tract of 28,627 acres, including the Ohio bottoms immediately above the mouth of Big Sandy river. It was bounty land belonging to Captain John Savage and the men composing his company, for services during the French and Indian war. The First settler near the forks of the Big Sandy appears to have been Samuel Short, who reared his cabin where the town of Cassville later stood, about the year 1796. Robert Tabor followed him, and in 1798 patented a tract of 2,500 acres. The first to locate on the head waters of Twelve-pole river was a man named Nevens, in 1799, and the next year was followed by about a dozen who became his near neighbors. James Bias reared his cabin at the mouth of Lick creek, on the banks of Twelve-pole river, in 1802, David Bartram coming the next season. John Thompson built the first distillery i n Wayne county.
