The Village of Stockton, in Hillsdale Township, was laid out in the summer of 1856, although the land was pre-empted in 1855; J.B. Stockton, Wm. Davidson and Wm. Springer were proprietors. The town was named after J.B. Stockton; Stockton stands on the E ˝ of Section 34. The plat is one mile long and one-half mile wide, and embraces as area of 320 acres. Rollingstone Creek enters the town plat on the west and flows northeast through the village. Stockton stands in the main Rollingstone valley, sometimes spoken of as the “west branch”. The creek was later renamed Garvin Brook, after philanthropist H.C. Garvin, founder of Bay State Milling Company, in Winona. Garvin also donated land west of Stockton to use as a park, known as Farmers' Community Park. It was told to me that the reason Stockton got named was because J.B. Stockton had half of the town property and the most money to begin the village. ...
