Excerpt from History of Floyd County, Iowa: Together With Sketches of Its Cities, Villages and Townships, Educational, Religious, Civil, Military, and Political History; Portraits of Prominent Persons, and Biographies of Representative Citizens; History of Iowa

As a consequence there will be some irreconcilable statements concerning the matters of pioneer history; and as local history, like this work, pertains to things of which nearly all its readers have been personally more or less cognizant, it will be sharply criticised. We have taken advantage of this ordeal in advance as far as practicable, and think we have succeeded in eliminating about all serious errors. For this purpose we have not only consulted many old residents and public men, but brought all the general history before the review of a competent committee of well known citizens.

In the arrangement of topics in this work we have endeavored to place them in an order as natural as possible; but one must scan the whole table of contents, to see its plan and scope, if he would become able readily to find any given point The history of Iowa is given first, then follows the general county history, next the history of Charles City, and lastly the township histories, in alphabetical order, with the biographical sketches in the same order, under the heading of the respective townships.

As one of the most interesting features of this volume, we present the portraits of several representative citizens. In this department of the work, it has been our aim to have the prominent men of the day, as well as the pioneers represented. Of course we could not give portraits of all the leading men of the county, or even half; but we have done our best to give a fair representation.
