Samuel Pasco


The accompanying history of Jefferson County, Florida, was prepared by Senator Pasco at the time of the dedication of the court house at Monticello in 1910, and was in part used by him in an address on that occasion. As first written the history of this region was traced from the earliest times to 1910; but because much relating to the period prior to the establishment of the county in 1827 has appeared in other articles in the QUARTERLY the narrative will begin with that year. The entire manuscript has been given to and may be seen in the collections of the Society. Samuel Pasco, of Pensacola, has been asked to bring together here an outline of the most important events and services of his father’s life. It is hoped that an adequate biography of one whose services to Florida were so extensive will appear in a future issue.--Ed.
