Notes for Winfield Scott Stiles:
Winfield came from Vermont with his family to Gilmanton, WI by riverboat "up the Ohio River" (quote from Lucy Stiles, wife of William Stiles, who used to hear Grampa Stiles (William Lyman Stiles) tell of coming to Wisconsin and Minnesota) to the Mississippi to either La Crosse, WI, or Winona, MN.
When Win was 10 years old, he moved with his family from Gilmanton, WI, to Pleasant Valley, MN. They came by oxcart. Because he was 10 years old, he walked beside the oxcart the whole distance, reserving seating on the oxcart for younger siblings and his mother.
Win was a stage coach driver where he met his future wife, Ella Jefferson.
In 1899, Win was elected (or appointed, not sure which) to be the constable of High Forest.
