Sac County Society
1850-1950
 
This society was organized in 1878. Dissolved several times before reorganization in 1903. The first permanent organization was effected at Sac City on September 29, 1903. The meeting convened at the court house.

OFFICERS elected:
President, Thomas Farquhar of Early
Vice president, W. Y. Herrick of Lytton
Secretary, F. H. McCray of Schaller
Treasurer, J. H. Stafford of Sac City

Members: Thomas Farquhar and J. W. Graham of Early; W. Y. Herrick of Lytton; F. H. McCray of Schaller; A. T. Brenton, Z. Fuller, J. H. Stafford, W. J. Findley, and W. H. Townsend of Sac City.

Meetings were to be held quarterly, and they were for a year or more. Interest then waned and meetings were scheduled semi-annually - then annually. Still later they became irregular, doing little more than was necessary to maintain the organization, which is the average experience of many of the small county societies in Iowa.

In 1914 the officers and members were listed as follows:

OFFICERS:
President, J. C. Iverson
Secretary, F. H. McCray of Schaller
Treasurer, J. H. Stafford of Sac City
