Inscription
The Mormons, Clark County's first loggers, came in 1844 and established camps between Wedge's Creek and Greenwood to cut timber for their Illinois city of Nauvoo. After the murder of their leader Joseph Smith at Carthage, Illinois in mid-1844, the Mormons soon left. The sole legacy of their Clark County settlements is Cunningham Creek, named for Jonathan Cunningham who drowned in it while running logs.
