 Notes for William Lyman Stiles:
William (Bill) was a stone mason by trade.

In approximately 1858, or so, he took his family, which consisted of his wife, Betsey, and his two young sons Daniel Lyman, and Winfield Scott , to Gilmanton, WI. It is said that he made his way to the Ohio River where they took a riverboat down the Ohio, to the Mississippi, where they ended up at whatever riverboat stop was convenient to Gilmanton, WI. He then proceeded to have 2 more children, while living in Gilmanton. In approximately 1865 (Win was 10), William moved his family to Pleasant Valley, MN, in Mower County. Here 3 more children were born.

"William came from Vermont with his family to Gilmanton, WI by riverboat "up the Ohio River" (quote from Lucy Stiles, wife of William's son, William Stiles, who used to hear Grandpa (William Lyman Stiles) tell of coming to Wisconsin and Minnesota) to the Mississippi to either La Crosse, WI, or Winona, MN."
