His name fippears on the cornerstone of the town hall as a member of the village council when the structure was built. A builder by trade, he worked on nlany structures in the town’s early days some of which are still stand in g.

And Lafayette’s postoffice was formerly officially designated as Herring, altho the town always was known as Lafay ette and the postoffice was later changed to that name. And John T. Huber, pioneer resi dent of Beaverdam sets us right on the name of that town which was formerly Shulltown, being laid out by a man named Shull about 1862. Its present name was acquired from a dam built by beavers in low ground west of the town. The animals felled trees to form a small body of water in a swampy area near the village. Mr. Huber says he recalls that in constructing an open ditch thru the Edgecomb farm the workmen un covered logs of the beavers’ dam un der some three or four feet of soil. Also he remembers when there were wooden slabs on the present Lincoln highway to make pioneer travel pos sible thru the swampy region in that vicinity. These slabs, he says were found several years ago when con struction of the present paved road was under way. Mt.
