Early Settlers By Name

Efforts were made to obtain the names of the principal actual settlers prior to 1850, and to arrange them by neighborhoods, but it was found to be almost impossible, and accordingly they are here given alphabetically. These names have been taken from the public records and interviews with some of the remaining pioneers.

Of course it is not proclaimed that this is a full or complete list of all the early settlers, but it is believed to be a larger and more complete list than has ever before been published.
