Old Settlers

This list is not ALL of the old settlers.  As I find more, I will be adding to the list.  If you have a listing or information about one of Lafayette Counties Old Settlers, please send it to me and I will then add it to our listing. Dori Leekley

You also may find "Duplicates" as the Old Settler may be on numerous lists.

Please remember that the following information is only a starting point for your research!

You should "Verify" all information found.
