    James & Minerva Lytle settled in Stafford Twp. in the summer of 1836.  They are credited with being the first settlers in Stafford Twp.  On May 26, 1837 they sold their farm to William Pryer.  My great, great grandfather, Edward Scoville, bought 2/5 of this farm in 1857 from 2 of the 5 heirs of William Pryer.

    I'm not sure where I found this information.  Eleanor, daughter of William Pryer, was born on Sept. 2, 1835 near Newville.  I don't know when the Pryer family came to DeKalb County, but apparently they were very early settlers.
