page 380 - This section is talking about the early settlers of Pleasant Township (Georgetown) in about 1800-1803. Then a paragraph mentions Jacob, Aaron, and Valentine Burgett along with other settlers who came to the township to settle "somewhat later than most of the above" (the ones who came in 1800-1803.
