  1. There is an old record in Crawford County Indiana on a Fort Mansfield, which was located in Leavenworth Indiana, but I cannot find any history, information or documentation about it. There is also an old trading post (built in the 1700’s), that is still standing today, but I also cannot find any history, information or documentation about it either. Any help would greatly be appreciated!
