1. William Lynn
Glennville, settled by Madison M. Glenn in 1857, is located northeast of Bakersfield in what is known as Linnís Valley.
William P. Lynn, a farmer who mainly grew hay and potatoes, first settled in the region in the year 1854. He built the first mill in the county, on Poso Creek but the high waters of 1861-1862 washed away the mill. After the floods, Lynn sold his interests and went to Colorado.
