SAN JOSEOnly a portion of this village lies in Logan County. It is mainly in Mason County on the Jacksonville division of the Chicago & Alton Railroad and contains a population of about 500.
That portion in this county was surveyed in 1858. This same year Brown's addition was made by Bentley Buxton, Sr., surveyor, and ten years later another by Crab & Linbarger.
The town is an excellent point for grain. Stevens & Barker have shipped from Logan County alone, from February 1 to November 1, 10,000 bushels of oats, 5,000 bushels of rye and 80,000 bushels of corn. C. B. Van Horn has shipped during the same time 10,000 bushels of corn from this county. I. G. Cunningham has shipped about 40,000 bushels of corn and 4,000 bushels of oats, making a total of nearly 150,000 bushels, aside from what is purchased in Mason County.
