My father's family came from Richland Co., Wisconsin. I read that Jimtown, Wisconsin was named for two Jim's. One was Jim BACHTENKIRCHER. I have not been able to locate any information on Jim and was wondering if someone could direct me in the right direction. My Great Grandfather was James BACHTENKIRCHER.
Thanks for your help,

In 1920 at the Richland Center, Richland, Wi. my Great Uncle Lewis ( went by the name of "Dewey") BAKER was at the Center. The U.S. Government sent him there. Dewey had diabetius and needed both of his legs amputated. He was trained to do a new trade. He was trained to do shoe repair.

The 1920 census shows he lived in a household listed with a variety of names on the Richland Center Grounds or housing provided by Richland Center off main property.

If any one has history of Richland Center at this time with the different kinds of healthcare and training they had available please contact me.

My grandfather was Frederick O. KINGERY. My father told me he is buried in Wisconsin and I am sure he told me it was Richland Center. I know that my father lived with him for a short while at Richland Center after he graduated from high school in the 1930's. How can I find out which cemetery he is buried in?

I would appreciate any assistance in this matter.
Thank you.

I am looking for information on P. V. and Mae/May COPPERNOLL and family. P. V. lived in Harpers Ferry for several years his first wife was Ada Florence HARPER daughter of David HARPER the man our town was renamed after.

P. V. and Ada Florence had a daughter named A. F. too. P. V.'s wife died shortly after giving birth due to complications. Eventually he married Mae/May BRENNAN / BRANNAN / BRANNON.

I would like to figure out who her parents and siblings were and would like to know who their descendants are. I did track P. V.'s daughter Ada to Herman, Nebraska. She married and had 2 children. Ada's daughter Edris did come back and visit Harpers as did descendants of David Hall HARPER son of the man the town was renamed for.

I think Mae/May was from Harpers Ferry too, so anything to answer the question what happened to P. V. and May after they left Harpers would be appreciated. Was Mae her real name or was it short for something?

Thank You,

Under "Civil War Soldiers" in "Misc Military Units" there are two mentions of men from Richland County serving in the "Iowa Cavalry" and in the "Iowa Infantry". Does anyone know if this was a local unit, an Iowa County unit, or a unit from the state of Iowa.

I ask because John N. PORTER, Town of Sylvan" is mentioned in Richland County records in the Court House as having been in the "Iowa Guard." I am a direct descendent of John N. PORTER. I am looking for any information on how these "Iowa" units are associated with men from Richland County. Thank you.

I would like to see if there is any information on the death of Lee BARNES (senior), son of William BARNES who was the son of Rezin BARNES. William operated a mill in the Richland County area. Lee may have died in Chicago. My father, Lee BARNES junior, was Lee senior's son (he was born in 1908 in Hammond, Louisiana when Lee and brothers went down there to build another mill, but spent his youth in Wisconsin and went to Black Earth High School). I don't really know anything about my grandfather, like what his profession was, except that I believe his wife's name was Mary FORD. I would like to see a death notice or know when and where he died or was buried.

You are our welcome visitor since 22 Jan 1997 -- thanks for stopping by!
