Constant Jean Baptiste Thiry was one of the first of the Belgian settlers in Red River, WI coming in 1856. He bought 80 acres of swampland from the State of Wisconsin on July 10, 1857 at 50 cents an acre. He returned to Belgium for his wife, Amelia and their three children. Records show them returning to the USA in July 1959 with son Ernest, landing at the Port of New York. Constant's brother Celestine accompanied them in their journey. When they returned, they built a cedar log cabin that expanded to 16 x 20-foot to house more children.
