EARLY SETTLERS IN GREENE COUNTY


This list was abstracted by Mary Ann Kaylor from the "History of Greene County Illinois, published in 1879 by Donnelly, Gassette & Loyd, Chicago", pages 316 through 323. It was included in a chapter concerning the Old Settlers Association. The following paragraph preceded the listing:

"The following list of those who came to this county very early is not offered as being complete or nearly so. Neither do the dates profess absolute accuracy. They are simply some of the names I have come across with the dates I have found attached to them."

The first column is the name of the Early Settler, the second column is the Year in which he came to Greene County, the third column is Misc. info included, generally when and where the settler was born (although there are very few listings in this column.)
