I am looking for information on William BARRETT and Anna QUINN who lived in Brown county (Cedarburg) in the 1800's. They and children, one of which was William Barrett and he married Elizabeth HUGHES. They also lived in cedarburg most likely.
I'm researching one of the first 7 families in Green Bay. According to Wisc Historical Collections, GRIGNON's MEMOIRs, Jean Baptiste BRUNET (or Brunette) came to Green Bay in 1775 from Quebec and worked for 1 year for Charles LANGLADE. The following year, 1776 he married Catherine Gautier - daughter of Charles GAUTIER by a panis servant of Charles Langlade. The slave has been identified as the sister of Chief Waupasha of the Mdewakanton Sioux according to Rentmeester. I am looking for more information about this Jean Baptiste BRUNET and for more documentation about his birth and death. I have conflicting information possibly because there is more than one generation witht he name Jean Baptiste Brunet and also because there is another Jean Baptiste Brunet in Prairie du Chein about the same time.
Hugh GRAHAM and Catherine DOHERTY of Sligo County; living in Green Bay, Brown Co., Wisconsin in 1850. Possible daughter Winifred Graham, b. 1831 in Sligo Co., married William b. WILSON. Other daughter Colleen chr. 1831 in Sligo.
Seeking NAYLOR & SARGENT
An entire branch of the Naylor settled in Brown County.
Other surnames: Cecil of Hatfield House, Walsh, Sturtevant, Cloutier, Benjamin
I am especially interested in finding out more about the parents and line of Anna Sargent, wife of Jerome H. Naylor (see below) as I've just discovered her name in his Civil War pension file.
Also especially interested in help tracing the Naylor line into Canada and beyond (Naylors were French and the name may have at one time been Cloutier). Family legend has it that they are descended from a Huguenot that eloped with a daughter from the Cecil family of the House of Hatfield. Lord Salibury's archivist at Hatfield House could not dispell that story because there were a couple of generations for which they do not have complete records of children.
Here's what I do know:
1.) Jeremiah Naylor, born in Canada 1774, migrated to Rutland County, Vermont c. 1800. (remarried, a Mary (?) after 1819). He appears in the Census for Brandon in 1850 & 1860; and the Rutland Census in 1840. He died May 31, 1862 at Brandon and is buried at Rutland's Pine Hill Cemetery (anybody seen this marker or have a photo?).

I note that there was a Tehan TAYLOR in Brown Co. at least in the censuses of 1850, 1870 and 1880. In each it says he was born in Nys. Since it is an unsual given name, and since it was a family given name in my own TAYLOR line in Nys, I wonder if anyone has information about this man. In 1870 and 1880 he and wife are listed. In 1850 he is listed as 50, occupation Miller, born NY and has children Harriet 16, Anna 11, Jane 9 and Julia 4, all born in W. There is no apparent wife.

The Henry DEBYL family lived in Brown County at least from 1886 into the 1900's. The Martin BOLENA family lived in Brown County from around 1868 to at least the 1880's. Both families had children that married in Brown County and lived in the Green Bay or Belleview areas. I am a direct descendent of both families and would like to share information and photos with anyone connected with these families.
I am searching for more information about my LUCAS and VAN_DE_LAAR ancestors. Daniel Lucas and his wife Nancy (Kisner) Lucas came to Brown County WI from Ohio in the 1840's. They had 6 children, Abraham, John, Francis, Martha, Alpheus and Daniel. Abraham married Mary Van de Laar from Holland on 12-31-1857 in Green Bay. The marriage certificate mispelled her name as Mary Bandelar. I haven't found a US Citizenship record for her and I do not know her town of birth in Holland. In the 1860 census Abraham is listed as an engineer born in Ohio married to Mary born in Holland. We believe Abraham fought in the Civil War. On his return he fathered my ggfather James Henry Lucas born 12-15-1868. By the 1880 census, Abraham is a 43 year old tin smith.
Has anyone else tracked down either the Lucas family history or the Van de Laar family history? I would like to exchange information.
