    The approximate location of this road is indicated by the reminiscences of J. E. Y. Hanna as recorded in "History of Massac County" By O. J. Page Published 1900.

    "In an early day there was a path or trail leading from Fort Massac to Kaskaskia on the Mississippi, below St. Louis, which in the common parlance of the country was called "The Kaskatrace." This road, or pathway, crossed the Bay creek at the site of Green's old mill, and passing east of Columbus came to the bluff called the Massac Bluff, on account of its being the bluff nearest to Fort Massac, which could not be avoided. This bluff still retains the name. . . . . A few miles south of Eddyville, there was a settlement formed about the year 1815, among the members of which were Robert Penny, James A. Whiteside, Lincoln Harper, John Whiteside, and Adam McGhee. . . .This settlement was strengthened soon after in 1817 or 1818 by three brothers named Shufflebarger-or as since called S.Barger."
