Sylvan's
Early
Settlers


(An excerpt from "Honoring Our Heritage" by Marge Lawson. Pg. 80. Used with permission. Transcribed by Tonya Peck.)

During the early 1900's settlers reunions were held for a few years in Lincoln. Those who attended wrote their names in a county book along with the year they had come to Sylvan Grove and where they had come from. Of course, not all the early settlers attended the reunion. It was a long trip to Lincoln in the years between 1901 and 1910 when the reunions were held. A partial list of those signing from Sylvan Grove follows.
