ST. JOSEPH Township, settled in 1854, organized in 1858, and its city, founded in 1855 and incorporated January 18, 1890, bear the name of its church. The first settler, German immigrant Peter Loso, came in 1854, made a claim on sections 9 and 10, on which the village was platted, owned a store, a mill, and a hotel, and died in 1877. The post office was established as Clinton in 1856, with John Linnemann as postmaster; when the name was changed to St. Joseph in 1870, Loso was postmaster; it had a station of the Great Northern Railway in section 10.
