FIRST SETTLERS [in Elkhorn Township]
In going about along well improved highways, with excellent farms on either hand attracting the attention of the passer-by, the question naturally arises, today, "Who was the first to claim land and build for himself a home in this goodly territory?" By careful research among the pioneers it is learned that in 1876 Charles
Bullis came from Franklin county, Iowa, and purchased land in the autumn of that year, on section twenty-six, township ninety and range fourty-four, which now constitutes Elkhorn civil township. At that date there was not a house of any description to be seen in Elkhorn's eastern neighboring township of Garfleld.
