John Spracklin expanded his holdings to the Town of Amity in Pike Township. Amity is in the very southeastern corner of Pike. Pike Township is in the north middle part of Knox Co., The lots are in Section 21 which is the very corner of Pike. I drove right by there when I was traveling there in 2011. I don’t think it is a recognized town anymore and when I was trying to find out more about it I would get other Amity’s in other locations, so be careful.
