Burkhimer, Michael, Mary Todd Lincoln: Lincoln Fellowship of Wisconsin,
You ask me to relate how Pasco county received its name. From toHernando county, especially the southern end, rapidly filled with a high type of settlers, many of whom I knew and remember pleasantly.
We all were weary of traveling the sand trails of Brooksville, the county seat, to attend court, or transact other business of varied nature, and when we would meet, as neighbors will, at our community post office and stores, comment was loud and complaint vigorous and prolonged against the hardships of the trip.

Hendley and myself being the committee selected.

As we learned that nearly every member thought he came from the Banner county, we began to seek for an unobjectionable name. At that time the body was in joint session, voting for United States Senator, and very enthusiastically elected Judge Samuel Pasco of Monticello to the position.
