About Naperville,IL

In July 1831, Joseph Naper arrived at the west bank of the DuPage River with his family and friends to found what would be known as Naper's Settlement. Among those original settlers were Naper's wife Almeda Landon, his brother John with wife Betsy Goff, his sister Amy with husband John Murray, and his mother Sarah. Their arrival followed a nearly two-month voyage across three Great Lakes from New York in the Naper brothers' schooner, the Telegraph. The area was still frontier and Native Americans such as the Sauk contested the European-American encroachment of their longheld territory. They first landed in the settlement that developed as Chicago, and several families stayed there.
