      From: "The Douglas County History and Centennial Observation" 1961

      pg 29 "Early Organization of County" Huston
      "It was during the latter part of 1881 that J. C. Baird, C. E. Huston, and A. D. Mather decided to file on land in Douglas County bordering Choteau Creek. The decision was made by tossing a coin. They had come from Milltown in Hutchinson County and had spent the day inspecting farm land in Douglas County. As a bad storm was approaching and as they were undecided whether to attempt the return trip or remain overnight, they finally came to a decision by flipping a coin. As a result they spent the night with Jefferson Manbeck and filed on nearby land the next day."

      pg 208 Appendix County Treasurers A. D. Mather 1882 - 1883
