Hi, am hoping to find out some information on Roaring Creek, Jackson Co., Wisconsin. I have a letter written in 1856 from family in Scotland who mention that a John + James Douglas had bought 2 hundred + 12 acres of land in Illinois + had built a blacksmith shop + had commenced farming + Blacksmithing. The address given to write to them was written as:
Roaring Creek P O
North of Wisconsin
Hoping someone may be able to tell me something of them. I am in Australia where other members of the Douglas family emigrated to, but would like to start to trace these American settlers.
Thank you in anticipation
