This current structure was established in 1865. Before that there were differences that impacted the 1850 and 1860 census records. In February 1850 the differences were as follows:

Washington was formed 11 Mar 1856.  Prior to then, it was part of Savanna Twp.
Shannon
was included with Cherry Grove.
Rock Creek, the west half was added to Salem and the east half to Lima.
York was included in Harlem.
Fair Haven, the west half was included in Harlem, the SE was included in Wysox, and the NE was included in Salem.

For the 1850 census another township, Carroll, appears in addition to the one named Mount Carroll. He may have just abbreviated Mt. Carroll.  (See 1850 Census Error)
