The board of justices at their March session in 1830 created Washington thownship, with the following limits: Beginning on the Wabash river at the mouth of Big Pine creek; thence up said creek to the line dividing townships 23 and 22 north; thence west on said line to the state line; thence south to the line dividing townships 21 and 22 north; thence on the north line of township 21 to Rock creek; thence down said creed to its junction with the Wabash river; thence up said river to the place of beginning.

At the same time the following territory was attached to Pike township, being taken from Mound township: Beginning of the Wabash, where the line dividing sections 10 and 15, township 20, range 9 west, intersects the same; thence due west to King's creek; thence up said creek to the north line of said township 20; thence east with said township line to the river Wabash; thence down said river to place of beginning. This territory was taken from the northeastern corner of old Mound township.

At the same date as above, Pine township was formed with limits as follows: Bounded on the east by the line dividing ranges 7 and 8, south by the north line of township the north line of township 22 north, west by the state line and north by the north line of the county. The township then included the present Prairie and Pine townships and the southwestern portion of Newton county. All of old Warren township 22, was attached to Warren county by an act approved January 30, 1830, and lying west of Big Pine creek, should be attached to Pine township; and also all that portion of such territory east of Big Pine creek should be attached to Medina township. A little later, in March, 1830, all of Warren east of the line dividing sections 2 and 3, range 7 west, was attached to Medina township.
