Capt. Stanley list of petitioners

Old Settlers.

When it was told Captain Stanley, of Lyle, that the 1,500 petitioners' names included many tramps and unknown persons, he rose in his might and prepared a list of the names in his and an adjoining township, with residences and the number of years each has lived in the county. The list is found in the communication below, and and examination proves there are only eleven that have been here a less number of years that the Captain himself, and he has been here three years.
