-As transcribed from page 96
Unity Township was not settled until after the two townships on either side. A number of claims were taken in 1856, but so far as is known, none of the claimants were living here at that time. Nearly all the first settlers have moved away. Probably the first two settlers were Dennis Lawler, who settled south of the Buffalo River in the eastern part of the township, and P. B. Williams, who settled in the central part of the township and had land on both sides of the river. These settlers came about 1859. It was not until 1870 that the real influx of settlement came to this township. Among the pioneers may be mentioned Esten Johnson, Ole E. Johnson, Engebret Pederson, Anders Larson, Even Evenson, Martin E. Rognlien, Simon Rise, John Rise, Ole Svendson, Simon Olson, Peder Inislund, Ole Dahl, Paul Christopherson, Nels Kleven, Peder H. Bjornstad, Ole Thomasgaard, John Christianson, Hans Paulson, Martin Olson and Andrew Call.
