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.
