ADAMS COUNTY BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES

Adams County Genealogical Sketches

Transcribed by J.T. Elderkin, August 1997

Ancestries of pre-1900 Adams Co. residents extracted from MEMORIAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD AND ILLUSTRATED COMPENDIUM OF BIOGRAPHY CONTAINING A COMPENDIUM OF LOCAL BIOGRAPHY INCLUDING BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES OF HUNDREDS OF PROMINENT OLD SETTLERS AND REPRESENTATIVE CITIZENS OF COLUMBIA, SAUK AND ADAMS COUNTIES, WISCONSIN, published 1901 by Geo. A. Ogle & Co., Chicago.

Notes: Names of profiled individuals are listed in alphabetical order. Only direct line ancestral information has been extracted. Names of siblings, which are often given in the book, have not been extracted. The book contains extensive data on each family's children, including spouses and residences, also not extracted. Where discrepancies exist between accounts, the information has been transcribed as it appears in each entry without attempting to alter or reconcile the differences. In one instance, a date which the compiler knows to be incorrect (from primary documentation) has been omitted to avoid perpetuating inaccurate data.
