I'm looking for Josephine COON, daughter of Adam COON, her mother possibly a SPELMAN. Family records say she was born prior to Wisconsin becoming a state... around 1828 in West Division(?), Grant County, Wisconsin. I realize there probably won't be any birth records that early, but I'm not even sure where to start looking. Was Grant County considered a part of Iowa in 1828? Further, I can't find any reference to a West Division in the City/Township listings. Linda K. Sonnenberg. Email address: [email protected]
