My ancestors spent some time in Vernon county in the mid to late 1800's. We have transcribed some early newspaper articles and I just put them online at http://members.tripod.com/~Eric_Borreson/index.html
Scroll down until you see the link to "Vernon County Stories".
The stories are:
James Allen Murders Bert Caucutt
History of Avalanche, Wisconsin
Alderman Peavey Tells History
Early Settlers in Vernon County
I am interested in getting in touch with anyone connected to the following families: Standiford, Calkins, Selby, Oliver, Allen, Richardson, Williams, Roberts
