MetadataShow full item record
Wonewoc, Wisconsin: The First Forty Years is an attempt to compile the history of this small village in Wisconsin from its initial exploration and settlement to its incorporation. In attempting to enumerate the growth of this village it was necessary to provide background material in the nature of Indian land acquisitions and the formation of Juneau County. Primary sources of local information are almost nonexistent. Personal papers, diaries, and the like from the middle 1800's, dealing with Wonewoc history, were not available. The only primary source, other than newspapers dating from the 1880's, was a newspaper column written by Ruth Huff in the 1940's and 1950's. Her column often cited historical data in connection with Wonewoc. She used, as her foundation for fact, a diary kept by her father, Charles Huff, one of the early pioneers of Wonewoc.
