I have been doing genealogy for over 25 years. I have researched and compiled the Schoville family history and the Potter family history.
My parents were from Soldiers Grove, Crawford Co., WI; Readstown and Viroqua, Vernon Co., WI so my research takes me to the southwest corner of Wisconsin in the counties of Crawford, Vernon, Richland and Grant.
Names that are on in the Schoville family are Schoville and the variations with and without the H or the E; Singles, Hall, Hill, Hull, Ward, Knause, Nevil, Ayers.
Names in the Potter family are the Potter, Wilkinson, Crook, Hutchison, Ward, Aikens, Hall, Hill, Livermore, Anderson, Harris, Sutherland and Barlow.
Both of the families came from the East...Ohio, New York, Vermont, Rhode Island and Massachusetts- Warren, Cowdrey, Ackley, Barnes, other spelling of my paternal grandfather's last name Schoville (and was spelled several ways- Scoville, Scovill, Scovil); Proctor, Stevens, Pike, Church, Cleveland, Brigham, Keyes; Councilman, Hathaway, Chase.
Then there is my husbands family which includes Buchanan, Peterson, Dotson, Kennedy, Daniels, Phillis, Dodd, Willey, Ackley, Horan, Stone, Stallard, Chesley, Osborn.
