      Joel Eli Stauffer was one of the first settlers in Kinloss in 1850 that settled on the "Free Grants". Stauffer is acknowledged as the first man to ever cross the Township of Kinloss.2a

      __________________________

      The number of settlers that came into the county in 1850 was largely in excess of the preceding year. As these settled principally on " free grant " lands, it is but fair to assume that the advantageous character of the offer made by the Crown was becoming widely known and realized. The greater portion of these settlers found farms to their satisfaction in either Brant or Kincardine, while a few passed into Kinloss, which in 1850 received its first inhabitants, who settled in the vicinity of "the Black Horse," among them being Joel Eli Stauffer, Thomas Hodgins, Thomas Smith, John and William Shel- ton and others. A fair number of settlers located on the Lake Ranges in Huron and Kincardine, largely attracted by the advantage offered of water communication, which gave ready access from the first. Arran received its first settler in this year in the person of Henry Boyle, a squatter who located on his lot in advance of the survey of the township3a
