New Maysville was an early thriving community in sections 27 and 34 of Jackson Township, which is in Northeastern Putnam County. The history of this community is so vast, this will be split between two parts. Check back in a few days for part 2. A review of Malcom Romine’s recently released book on New Maysville is available at the Putnam County Museum and is a great resource. I am going to also list some sources at the end of this article which one can obtain online from the Hoosier State Chronicles, some of which predate the 1879 history of Putnam County and were almost certainly used as source materials for that publication.
New Maysville was platted June 22, 1832 by Richard Biddle on land owned by Orthaniel Talbott, John Johnston, William Welsh and Aquilla Talbo
