MetadataShow full item record
Family on The Frontier was written to offer a glimpse into one family’s journey to western Wisconsin. The family that was looked at was the Hewitt family, who traveled to from England in the early 1840s, and made a life in Augusta, Wisconsin. The paper also looks at the different waves of immigration and migration of settlers into the United States, and subsequently, the Wisconsin area, beginning in the early 1800s continuing through the next three-hundred years. There was a great variety of people who came to Wisconsin, coming from several countries around the world, and states around the nation. The paper was written with the use of census data, land records, and family records, along with various secondary works detailing the movements into the state of Wisconsin.
