Roads and Pikes
From History of Madison County, W. H. Beers & Co, Chicago, 1883
This township is supplied with good roads and free turnpikes, passing through it and heading in all directions to the important towns in other townships and counties. Through the northwest corner of the township passes the Jefferson, South Charleston & Xenia Turnpike; running in a northeast and southwest direction through the township, a little west of the center, is the old London & Xenia road; then further east is the Madison & Fayette turnpike, the London & Blooomingburg road, and the Yankeetown road, the latter forming the boundary line between Paint and Union Townships for two to three miles. Through the northward Part of the township, and running nearly parallel with the Jefferson, South Charleston & Xenia Turnpike, passes the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati & St. Louis Rail road, and, although there is no town on its line within Paitn township, yet they have a way station called Florence.
