AUTHOR'S PREFACE



In preparing this work, which. is not so much a county history as a collec-
tion of notes to serve the coming historian, the following sources of informa-
tion have been used freely: The printed and manuscript collections of the
historical societies of the state and county ; the records of the adjutant-gen-
eral's office at Madison; the Legislative Manuals and other official publications
of the state; the Geological and Hydrographic Surveys of Wisconsin; the
county records at Elkhorn. including those at the office of the county jndge,
county clerk, clerk of the circuit court, treasurer, register of deeds, and superin-
tendent of schools; the books of the County Agricultural Society; "History of
Walworth County" (Chicago, 1882); Cravath's "Annals of Whitewater";
Simmons's "Annals of Lake Geneva" ; the files of Delavan, Elkhorn and White-
water newspapers; the personal recollections of the compiler and of many of
his known and unknown friends, within and without the county; the tomb-
stones of forty-five burial grounds; and unreckonable minor or incidental
papers, pamphlets, documents and letters.

A few words as to the plan and arrangement of this volume may not be
wholly useless. The theory of its construction is that a local history, its inter-
est, if any, confined to a narrow plat of ground, cannot have in it too much oi
the personal element. An arch-necromancer's uncanny skill could not avail to
restore anything like the semblance, even though but ghostly, of all those men
who once answered to the names found in the lists of land-patentees ot [838,
in the juror lists of [839, and in the town-officer lists of [843; but the patient
searcher of fading records may find a date, a wife's name, a hint oi heirs
wrangling over a will — something to show that these men have not all of them
become as forgotten kings ,,f pre-Mosaic dynasties.

The neighboring counties, in two States, were much like Walworth in
their origin and development ; and human nature was and is the same in all ol
them. Walworth included. But there were little lines in the lives of the earlier
men and women of Walworth that are yet of some human interest to their
descendant- and successors. To., little can be recovered of lives Ion- gone to
make each one's tale over-tedious. for mosl of them, little more than the
length of a tombstone inscription remains, but for us that little differentiates



AUTHOR S PREFACE.

Walworth from Rock and McHenry and all the other counties of the Union

and the Dominion.

[f this work were our county history's last word, far more could with
reason be required of it than is herein performed. A little, no doubt, worth
another workman's consideration, is added to the store of historic material.
It will be observed that in the lesser divisions of the volume the town- art-
taken in their alphabetical order for their readier finding. Citizen- of each
town of whom nearly nothing was learned but their names and a date or two
for each, are named with their towns. They of whom more detail was found
are placed in alphabetical order as a county list.

It would be pleasing to acknowledge explicitly all the favors shown by
old and new friends, official and unofficial: but the tally-list would be very long.
and omissions would seem coldly careless if not intentional. No person, how-
ever, can make even a barely passable local history without that kindly co-
operation nowhere to be found more intelligent and willing than in "glorious
old Walworth."

Albert C. Beckwith.
Elkhorn, July 15, 1912.



PUBLISHER'S PREFACE



All life and achievement is evolution; present wisdom comes from past
experience, ami present commercial prosperity has come only from past exer-
tion and suffering. The deeds and motives of the men that have gone before
have been instrumental in shaping the destinies of later communities and
states. The development of a new country was at once a task and a privi-
lege. It required great courage, sacrifice and privation. Compare the pres-
ent conditions of the people of Walworth county. Wisconsin, with what they
were one hundred years ago. From a trackless wilderness and virgin land.
it has come to be a center of prosperity and civilization, with millions of
wealth, systems of railways, grand educational institutions, splendid indus-
tries and immense agricultural and mineral productions. Can any thinking
person be insensible to the fascination of the study which discloses the
aspirations and efforts of the early pioneers who so strongly laid the founda-
tion upon which has been reared the magnificent prosperity of later days 5
To perpetuate the story of these people and to trace and record the social,
political and industrial progress of the community from its first inception
is the function of the local historian. A sincere purpose to preserve facts
and personal memoirs that are deserving of perpetuation, and which unite
the present to the past, is the motive for the present publication. The work
has been in the hands of able writers, who have, after much patient study
and research, produced here the most complete biographical memoirs of
Walworth count). Wisconsin, ever offered to the public A specially valuable
and interesting department is that one devoted to the sketches of representative
citizens of this county whose records deserve preservation because of their
worth, effort and accomplishment. The publishers desire to extend their
thanks to the gentlemen who have so faithfully labored to this end. Thanks
are also due to the citizens of Walworth county for the uniform kindness with
which they have regarded this undertaking and for their many services ren-
dered in the gaining of necessary information.

In placing "Beckwith's History of Walworth County, Wisconsin," before
the citizens, the publishers can conscientiously claim that they have carried out
the plan as outlined in the prospectus. Every biographical sketch in the
work ha- been submitted to the part) interested, lor correction, and therefore
any error of fact, if there he any. is solel) due to the person lor whom the
sketch was prepared. Confident that our effort to please will fully meet the
approbation of the public, we are,

Respectfully.

THE PUBLISHERS.
