The first permanent white man settlement in Flowerfield was in 1829 by Michael Beadle. This was at the now village of Flowerfield. In the early days this township was known as the timberlands and open oaks. David beadle operated the first mill in the township and in the village. Many times the local Indians would loot the vegetables from the garden and slide in the chimney hole on the roof of houses and steal the bacon and flour.
