Calvin, I'm sorry but no matter where I look I can't find the date that Peoria actually came into being. If I read the Union Co. History correctly, it looks like Peoria was in the Marysville, OH records etc. before it was surveyed. However I can't find anything to substantiate that. I do know the name Spain [Spaine] comes into the records at very early times. They talk about the PEORIA SAW MILL but I didn't see a date on that or why it was called that. I suppose eventually something will pop up:)
