Biographical
George Norman, Sr., one of the pioneers of Henrietta, is a native of England, born in Somersetshire, July 17, 1811, where he spent his younger days. At the age of twenty-one he left his native land and came to America, and settled in the province of Ontario. He purchased land in what is now the town of Ora. Upon this land, which was heavily timbered, he built a log house and cleared a farm, and lived there until 1850. He then sold out and came to Wisconsin, settled in Jefferson county, where he bought property in Watertown, and lived there until 1855. In that year he came to Richland county and entered land on section 20, of town 12, range 1 east, now known as Henrietta. He built a log house and then began clearing his farm. He occupied the log house until 1859, when he built a neat frame house, in which he now lives, on section 17. He was married in 1834 to Mary Welsh. They have eight children --- George, Robert and Maria, twins; Joshua J, Caleb H, James, Thomas and Mary J.
