The Maquoketa Sentinel began publishing on May 25, 1854. It became the
Jackson Sentinel sometime in 1866.
As far as the info I have, that is probably the earliest paper
published. Hope that is some help.

The earliest newspaper I find listed on the Jackson Co. pages is the
Maquoketa Excelsior that was established in 1855. Any suggestions for Jackson Co.
coverage prior to 1855...in particular the death of Noah SYKES who drowned in the
Mississippi River Apr. 16, 1853?
