Reminiscences of a pioneer settler in Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Reminiscences of a pioneer settler in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who left his home in Vermont in 1831, traveled by schooner and stage to Coldwater, Michigan, where he practiced medicine and taught school. In April, 1835, he drove a team to Milwaukee. In his narrative he describes and characterizes many of the pioneer men and women of Milwaukee, and speaks of Indian conflicts, the organization of government, the development of industries, and local rivalries. A portion of the sketch was published in James S. Buck's Pioneer History of Milwaukee, 1:49-52 (Milwaukee, 1890).
