I am a native of Clark county, Wisconsin where I have lived most of my life. I have been very interested in genealogy and local history since I was a boy. I grew up in the rural Neillsville area and married a native of the Withee area so that I have come to know both ends of the county and the area between fairly well.
Surnames I am interested in: Jilek (from Kuklik, Moravia); Prokop from Klinovice, Bohemia and settled in Chicago; Toellner and Strebing from Mecklenburg, Germany and settled in Lyons, Cook county, Illinois area; Struensee from Wittstock, Brandenburg, Germany and settled in Winnebago county, Wisconsin; Yarrington, Young (originally Jung) and Welty that settled in Bureau county, Illinois; also Darwood and Hewitt respectively from villages of Haddenham and Cottenham in Cambridgeshire, England.
On my wife's side: Bush and Ripp that settled in Jackson county, Wisconsin area; Myllykangas (shortened to Kangas) from Ahtari, Finland area; Lehtonen / Huuhanaho from Multia, Finland area; Makinen (changed to Hill in the U.P.). All of these Finnish families settled either in DeKalb, Illinois or the U.P. of Michigan first, then came to the Owen-Withee area here in Clark county, Wisconsin.
