     In 1859 brothers Marion (1835-1927) and James Loyd (1837-1922) of Illinois purchased this site. Marion built a log house to which their father John and several younger children came to live. Marion married Friendsina Cheshier (1841-1870) in 1862 and had four children. In 1879 he married his brother Thomas' (1848-1873) widow Ann Haney Loyd (1853-1912) and had three children. Marion was a farmer, area leader, and organizer of Loyd school. His deep soft water well made his home a gathering place for neighbors and travelers. Loyd descendants remain on the land. (1980)
