If you want to really go back, I'm pretty sure that all the players from teams like the Montreal Shamrocks were basically taken from the same neighborhood. The teams were formed out of athletic clubs, and based around close circles of friends.

I'm not sure if there's enough biographical information available to confirm that they were 100% home grown, though. Maybe there was a random guy from out of town.
