From Primitive Baptist Family History Assistance... Other Primitive Baptists had already settled in the area. John Eveland The firsy white settler in the county, in 1820, lived for a short time near the present day Waterford, on Spoon River; then moved to Buckheart township, and built a cabin on what became known as the Eveland Branch, a small stream which flows into Big Creek westof Bryant... I have seen other material stating he was the first white settler
One of the SHAW family, James B. SHAW married Mary EVELAND in Oct 1877, so the family was still in the area. Betty Bower
