George W. Bly, Corporal Company G, 6th Regiment, Wisconsin Infantry.

Blyville, established in 1873 in the northeast part of the county, was named after George W. Bly, one of the old settlers of that vicinity.

"Blyville, in the northeastern part of the county, is composed principally of Americans and Swedes. George W. Bly is one of the first settlers, and has one of the finest dwelling houses in the county." Nebraska Place names, university of Nebraska Press, 1960, "Blyville. A former village which was named, according to Gannett's treatise for George W. Bly, an early settler in the vicinity."
