Warsaw Signal

City: Warsaw

County: Hancock

State: Illinois

Thomas C. Sharp and James Gamble began publication of the Warsaw Signal in May 1841. They ran the paper together until November 1841, at which point Sharp continued on alone. In the summer of 1842, Sharp defaulted, and the paper was published as the Message from 1843 to 1844. Sharp resumed the Signal in 1844 as an anti-Mormon outlet, and it continued in that vein until 1846. After the Mormons left Hancock County, Sharp turned over the Signal to Thomas Gregg, who published it until 1850. In 1851, Gregg revived the Signal and published it until 1853.
