Before the Organization, which took place in 1869, Flynn was attached to Elk
Township. The Township was named for Thomas Flynn, who was one of the
first settlers, and the first Supervisor.

William Fitch was the first settler, stopping on section 36 in 1857. William
Flynn came about one year later, and soon after they were joined by William
McGregor and R. J. Nicholl.

The first school-house in the Township was a frame built in 1869, at Omard.
The rest of this village consisted of the Post Office.

About the time the Township was organized a Methodist Church was also
established, but no building was erected, the services were held in the
school-house at Omard.
