Pulaski County was formally organized May 6, 1838, when a group of men met at a log cabin and designated "Winnemack" as the "Seat of Justice," and received donations of land for a public square, a public seminary and a graveyard. Winamac was named after an Indiana Chief who lived in the area in the early 1800's. The county was named after General Casimir Pulaski, a Polish-born soldier in the American Revolution. The county's first election was held May 13, 1839. In addition to being the county seat, Winamac was the location of a government land office from 1839 to 1857.

Located in northwestern Indiana, Pulaski County is rectangular, 18 miles north and south, and 24 miles east and west. The county is generally level, except in areas along the Tippecanoe River which runs from the northeast corner of the county through the south central part of the county. There are four incorporated towns: Winamac, Francesville, Medaryville and Monterey. Unincorporated villages include Star City, Pulaski, Denham and Beardstown. Pulaski County has had three courthouses since its organization. The present structure was completed in 1895 at a cost of $50,000.

I hope you find my efforts helpful in your research of your County roots. I am unable to do additional research on your family as I do not have direct access to records. I post everything I have for all to use.
