Orange County FLGenWeb: Early Settlers

The following biographies are contained in "Early Settlers of Orange County, Florida," by C. E. Howard, Orlando, FL, Publisher, 1915. The original images copy of the book is online at Central Florida Memory. It contains images and some additional information pertaining to the history of Orange County.

I will be slowly transcribing these biographies. When each is done, there will be a link to the obituary from this list and their surname will be capitalized. If there is a photo to go with the person, I will indicate this, but you will need to go to the original work to view it.
