Prior to the Civil War, there were a few clearings in the town of Levis, some in Pine Valley, near Neillsville, and at Weston Rapids, perhaps the largest then was the farm of Conrad Dell, known afterwards as the Chandler place near the mound on the west side of the river across from Weston Rapids.


December 25, 1864, a few Lutheran families banded together and incorporated a congregation which was called "Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church of Lynn Township." (Lynn and Grant townships were originally one township known as Lynn.)

The families first forming this early congregation were the following: Andreas Rausch, George Kleinschmidt, Friedrich Sternitzky, Carl Sternitzky, Friedrich Yankee, Johann Riedel, Gottlieb Garbisch, Carl Schlinsog, Christian Dietrich, and Conrad Dell, Friedrich Gerber.


At the first town meeting of Pine Valley, April 4, 1854, the following officers were elected: Supervisors- James O'Neill, James French and Hugh Wedge; town clerk- B.F. French; justice of the peace--Moses Clark and James Conlin; assessor--James O'Neill; constable--B. F. French; Superintendent of schools- James O'Neill; overseer of highways--James Conlin, Conrad Dell and Elijah Eaton.


His daughter, Sophia Louise Dell (Dec 1835), married a store keeper named Jacob Paff (1825).  They had seven children and resided in Wausau, Marathon County, Wisconsin. She died in 1889 and was buried in the Pine Grove Cemetery and he was laid to rest in 1895.  Her mother, Elizabeth, lived with them when the 1870 Census was taken and died in 1888.
