An early Milwaukee settler recalls the city's infancy
George P. Delaplaine's statement: Recollections [of 1830s Milwaukee]
George P. Delaplaine came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1835 with surveyor Garret Vliet. After spending the winter surveying around Oconomowoc, Delaplaine returned to Milwaukee in 1836 and became a clerk for Solomon Juneau. Here, in a statement made in 1887, Delaplaine recollects life in 1830s Milwaukee where he associated with numerous early settlers, including Andrew Vieau.
