Biographical Note

George Pogue was one of the two pioneers credited with being the first settlers of Indianapolis, John McCormick being the other. Pogue, a blacksmith, had left Connersville, Indiana with his family of seven in 1819, cutting a trail in line with present-day Brookville Road. He settled in March of the same year, approximately where Pogue's Run crosses today's Michigan Street. Pogue disappeared mysteriously after venturing into the woods in search of some lost horses that he believed had been stolen.
