 Selby Township
History of Bureau County Illinois, H. C. Bradsby, Editor, Chicago Publishing Company 1885, Page 435-436

Selby is drained by Bureau, Brush and Negro Creeks, all running from the northeast to the southwest. The early settlers here made this a noted place. Amos and Daniel Dimmick were the first and they sold to John Hall. Then there was Judge Hoskins, the Seatons, Kellums and last but not least the Searles and Haslers. Extended accounts of all these people are given previously. The negro that settled on Negro Creek was said to be Enoch Love.
