History of Westville, LaPorte, IN:
The first number of the Westville Herald was issued on May 2, 1856, by C. G. Townsend and Alfred Townsend. The partnership continued only until the following August, when the office was sold to a company composed of Samuel Burns, Henly Clayburn and James Concannon. Townsend conducted it until November, when Chas. G. Powell took charge of it, and having bought out the proprietors, removed it to LaPorte in the month of August 1859.
