p. 429: FABIUS TOWNSHIP

Ordered: That congressional township sixty eight and fractional township sixty seven north range fifteen west be established and organized as a township to be called Fabius Township and that the house of Elias Veatch be appointed as the place for the first meeting of the electors thereof.

page 589:

FABIUS TOWNSHIP

Population in 1880: 1063

This is all of congressional township 67 range 15 north of the Missouri State line and also three tiers of sections on the south side of congressional township 68 range 15 except a strip off the north tier of sections now belonging to West Grove township. It was named from Fabius creek which rises in the west side of the township and flows easterly across it. This township contains 27,000 acres of land and is divided into six school districts.

William Hensen, Levi Reeves, Archibald Toombs, Benjamin Ethel, Thomas Wisdom, William Eaton, and the Veatch families were the early settlers of Fabius township. Samuel Russell, one of the early settlers in this township, is one of the heaviest sheep raisers in southern Iowa. See his biography.
