Subject: Moffetts in Rome, Jefferson Co.


Hello: I'm trying to track down my Greatgrandmother's ( Mary Elizabeth Moffett)  parents, she was born in Rome, Wi. Jefferson Co. Feb. 8th, 1852.  Around 1854 the family of Abel Taylor and Orinzo Amanda (Foss) Bicknell Taylor took over raising Mary Elizabeth.  I have no idea if she had siblings.  There were two Moffitt families living in Rome, Wi. in the 1850 census, with children, two years before Mary was born. By the next census, there is no evidence of the Moffitts still being there.   I'd appreciate any and all help! Thank you kindly, Kathleen E. Martin

Subject: McAllen/McCall Families


I'm looking for possible descendants of my McAllen and McCall families.  They were only in Dodge Co. for a few years.  I don't think my McCall is related to the Frank & Edward McCall families.

James McCall was born
18 Aug 1825 in Co. Tyrone Ireland.  His declaration of intent was filed in Dodge Co. on 5 Oct 1855.  He had come to the US in 1853 through the Port of NY.  His wife was Anna McAllen--no marriage date or place has been found.  Their first two children were born in the Fox Lake area:  Anna McCall, born 5 Jul 1855 and Arthur McCall, born 1 May 1857.  By 1860 the family had moved to Vernon Co. WI.

Anna McAllen had two brothers:  Owen & Peter.  I found Owen in the 1855 census in Trenton Township.  His declaration of intent was filed
5 Nov 1855.  He came to the US in 1849 through NY.
His wife was Mary Boyle.  Their first child John was born in NY about 1852; Thomas born Feb 1855 and Isabelle born
11 May 1857, both in WI.   He had moved to Blue Earth Co. MN in 1857.

Brother Peter was born
10 Oct 1835 in Co. Tyrone Ireland.  His declaration of intent was filed on 3 Oct 1855 and indicated he arrived at the Port of NY in August 1851.  He came to Fox Lake in 1853 and worked as a blacksmith.  In 1858 he went to MN.  He married Mary Quinn Jul 1861 in Waupun.

There may also be a sister Mary.  I found a Mary McAllen who married a John Larkin with land in Mackford, Green Lake Co. about 1858.  Don't know if she is connected or not.  In the Famine Immigrants I found a Peter and Mary McAllion who arrived in NY in Aug 1851.

A possible brother, Charles, stayed in NY.

The parents for the McAllens were John McAllen and Isabella Hughes.  I have no other info.   For James McCall I have no parents or sibling names.

Please contact me at  Thanks!  /  Kathy Anderson

I just recently learned that Waupun was like a "headquarters" for many of the nearby Freewill Baptist churches, like Oakfield. I also found a mention of one of my ancestor's (Rev. Comfort Waller) colleagues, Rev. Alonzo Curtis. He appears to have been in or around Dodge County in 1855/6.

Are there any records regarding the Freewills in Dodge & Jefferson Counties and is there any info about Rev. Curtis? Thanks!

Howdy  -  I’m trying to do some research on William Bickle my wife’s relative who came from England and settled in Wisconsin. I have attached what I have as far as research and was hoping see what you might have on him. I’m confused as it seems like he settled in Jackson county but part of the family may have settled in Jefferson as well.


All the best  /  Bob Scott


William Bickle and Maryette Alvard


Ira’s Bickle’s father was William Bickle. William was born in the English County of Devon also known as Devonshire in 1827. Devon is located in the southwestern corner of England.


Devonshire, England

From “Barclay's Complete and Universal English Dictionary, 1842.


"A county of England, reaching from the Bristol to the English Channel, and bounded by Cornwall, and Somersetshire, and Dorsetshire. It is 69 miles in length, and 60 in breadth, and is divided into 31 hundreds. It is very hilly, and abounds in huge granite rocks, some of whose peaks are above 1500 feet in height. The highland is covered with wide moors, of which Dartmoor is the most extensive. But in the valleys and lower ground the soil is fertile. Its rivers are the Exe, the Culm, the Dart, the Tamar, the Otter, &c. Some parts of its coasts are composed of lofty cliffs, but at others there is a beautiful sandy shore. The air and climate are so mild and salubrious that invalids often retire to its sea-ports for the winter. Limestone, granite, some building-stone, and a species of wood-coal are found here, as well as some kinds of variegated marble. It produces corn, &c. and fruit trees, especially apples, whence much cider is made. Its fisheries also are of value. Exeter is its chief city. Population: 533, 460. It sends 22 members to parliament."  

Plymouth is now the largest city in Devon. In 1842 Devon was mainly agricultural  but all was not rural bliss. Conditions could be harsh, open sewers and poor housing were the norm. Many emigrated at this time to avoid the economic misery of living in Devon. With no husband and three young boys William’s mother decided to start a new life in America. Her journey to get here was long and perilous. You have to admire her courage to set out on this venture without a husband. She had to have been a woman of strong constitution.


According to David J. Bickle, William’s son… After his (William’s) father's accidental death, his mother with her three young sons took passage on a sailing vessel bound for the United States. They mostly likely left from Plymouth as that was a major sailing port. A severe storm blew the ship off course and at its conclusion the travelers found themselves near the southern tip of South America at the Falkland Islands. After re-setting their course, they eventually made their way to the United States. In time after a long overland trip they settled with their Welsh friends in Wisconsin.  William owned a gristmill near Portage, WI which is about 40 miles north of Madison, WI.


According to Joseph H. Bickle, another of William’s sons… His father settled in Wisconsin before the Civil War which was 1861-1865. He was a solder on the side of the Union during the war. William was born in England and came to the United States as a steerage passenger when he was a boy. He left England because of his antipathy for the government. He settled in Wisconsin and at first and gathered cranberries, sold evergreen trees and farmed for wages. He earned enough money to pay the passage to the states for his parents and other children. The family finally all settled in Wisconsin and the parents are buried there. William’s father was also named William and young William was one twelve children born to his parents.  William Bickle acquired a fair education in England in spite of the independent character of his youth. He enlisted as a private in a Wisconsin infantry division during the Civil War and fought against General Sherman’s army.  He served three years and was never captured or wounded by the enemy. In politics he was a Republican and took what interest a good citizen should in political affairs. William moved his family to Kansas in the spring of 1870 and entered a claim in the Solomon Valley, the old homestead being near the City of Beloit. He served as assessor of his township in Kansas but declined re-election to the office preferring not to serve that way. His religious faith was that of the Adventist Church. As a settler, he was one of the first in the Solomon Valley. He was ambitious to make himself a good home, and to surround himself with cattle, sheep and hogs and with the comfort their profits brought him.  He died in September 1905, at the advanced age of 89 years old.


Note: Given the age and date of death according to Joseph, William would have been born in 1816?

Maryette Alvard’s family was originally from New York State. Maryette was born in Oswego, NY in 1839.  Oswego is located on Lake Erie about 90 miles east of Rochester. Maryette’s father’s name was David B Alvard and his wife was named Anna. The Alvard’s migrated to Jackson County, Wisconsin in 1856 and established a trading post with the Winnebago Indians. The Indians were playmates of the Bickle and Alvard children. They taught them to shoot the bow and arrow and to do many of the Indian dances. In later years William and his children would entertain or scare their grandchildren with authentic war whoops they had learned.

On July 1st 1848 a William Bickle purchased 40 acres of land in Wisconsin from the land office in Milwaukee. If this is the same William Bickle it may give us a clue as to when he first came to Wisconsin.

On the 1860 US Census for Manchester, Jackson County, WI William and Maryette show up as married and living there. William states that he is 30 years old and Maryette who is going by Margett says that she is 20 years old. They have a William A. Bickle age 40 living with them as well their first born son Charles age 2 (b.1857) William stated that he was born in NY but he was in fact born in England. It looks like William & Maryette must have married in either 1856 or 1857. Either way they were married not to long after the Alvard’s moved to Wisconsin.


There is a record of a William Bickle getting married on June 22nd, 1847 in Jefferson County. I suspect that this may have been William A. Bickle as Maryette would only have been 8 years old in 1847. If he is living with William & Maryette in 1860 what happened to his wife? Was he visiting them at the time of the census or was he a widower?


There is another Bickle family living 90 miles away in Mineral Point, WI. Thomas Bickle age 32 and his wife Sarah are living with their daughter Mary age 9 and 35 year old Richard Bickle. Could this be William’s two brothers? Thomas and Richard both state that they we born in England

In the late 1860’s William Bickle and his family along with Maryette's parents, the Alvard's, packed up and moved. Their eventual goal was to settle in Kansas. Traveling by covered wagon, oxen, mules and cattle, the women rode while the men and older boys walked and herded the stock. On their way to Kansas they settled in Iowa for some time. This is where Ira Bickle was born.

Subject: Lane family


This summer I began searching the Lane family who, after leaving England in the 1830s, lived in Jefferson County, New York before making their way to southern Wisconsin (with a brief stop in Northern Illinois) in the late 1840s.


The family members were:


Father: John Lane (buried in Evergreen Cemetary at Johnson Creek)

Mother: Mary (Case) Lane (buried in Evergreen Cemetary at Johnson Creek)

son: James Lane (died and was buried in Iowa. Still trying to trace what happened to his son, Adelbert Manville Hunt, last spotted in South Dakota.)

son: George Lane (married, no children)

son: Job Lane (A civil war casualty, he is buried in Tennessee)

daughter: Ann Lane (listed in 1850 census of Farmington Township, not listed in 1860 census) 

daughter: Emma Lane Hotchkiss (buried in Evergreen Cemetary at Johnson Creek)

daughter: Jane Lane Hunt (married to John Hunt, moved to Sparta area and then to Barron County near Chetek)


Jane Lane Hunt is my great-great-grandmother.  I began this search at my mother's request but have become obsessed with filling in the blank spots in the record.  


I am attempting to learn:


Did Ann Lane die between 1850 and 1860 or did she marry and move away?  Who did she marry?  Where did she live?  Where is she buried?


What was the first name of Emma's husband?  When did they marry?  Where is he buried?


any help anyone can provide will be much appreciated.


In re-reading my post, I realized I made a couple of errors.


The son of James Lane was Adelbert Manville Lane, not Hunt.


Also, I neglected to list one daughter, Mary E. Lane.  She never married and is also buried in Evergreen Cemetary in Johnson Creek.

Subject: CROWLEY


Looking for information on my great, great grandfather Daniel Crowley. He was  born about 1830 in Ireland, married to Genevieve (Jane) Lightbody.  Daniel and Genevieve moved to Horicon around 1855.  Daniel died in a tavern brawl in 1878.  (The local paper reported there was a coroner's inquest but I have yet to find a death certificate.)  Possible siblings of Daniel:   Jeremiah Crowley also of Horicon and Margaret Crowley married to Jeremiah Crowley (no relation) of Oak Grove.

     Genevieve died around 1874 and the young children were placed in an orphanage in Chicago. The older children stayed at home with Daniel.  I believe their son Cornelius stayed in the area while most of the other children eventually settled in Milwaukee.

     I have ordered many of the newspaper clippings but I'm interested in other information and possibly connecting with someone else researching this family.

     thank you.  Stacey Duncan

Subject: Query for Alvina nee Holz Borchard Solveson


Hello Everyone -             I am looking for information on ALVINA nee HOLZ BORCHARD SOLVESON, born 8 MAY 1871, in Pommern, GR.  She came to the U.S. with her parents, Ludwig and Henrietta nee MAASS HOLZ on the ship Herder on 04 DEC 1880.  I know who and where she married later on in her life, but cannot find who this "BORCHARD" name is.  There is a family tree on her, but the area where you can contact the submitter is blank and I desperately would like to know who has this information on my family that I do not!  I did a data base search on Ancestry. COM and it came up with a pre-1907 marriage of 01 May 1907 in Dodge County.  Can anyone check on this for me and see what names are listed as the parents?    Maybe I can get some type of connection here to solve this mystery.  Thank you!

Subject: genealogy query from Ohio


hello - I've been trying for some time to find some information on a family who lived in Watertown, without much success, and wonder what's actually available. My great-great grandmother was a resident of Zoar, Ohio, settled in 1817 by a group of German religious Separatists, among whom were her grandparents. She was widowed in 1887 and left with 3 small children (I'm descended from the oldest of those children). How she met her 2nd husband is uncertain, but she later packed up the kids and took the train to Appleton, WI, and married a man named Christian Barth. He was then working at a lumber camp at Knox Mills. We are assuming they were married there as we've found no records here, but would like to know exactly when and where they were wed. They later moved back to Ohio and had 5 more kids. According to one of them, the Barths came to the US about 1854, settling at Watertown, and later ran Barth's General Store. Christian was born in Germany ca.1850, but the exact town is unknown. According to Ohio death records, Christian's father's name was also Christian, but we know no more than that, how many siblings there were, where they're buried, etc.  I've tried looking up info online (am sort of a novice at that), and what info is available at the Canton (Oh) library but havent had much luck. Would appreciate very much any help getting steered in the right direction. My email is Thank you, Stephen Shonk.
