Belgian immigrants to Robinsonville-Champion, Brown County, WI
Ed, we have some of those names as well, settling here as well. Rubens Bodart desjardins in our tree are often parents or spouses of some, but seem to have a connection in that way.
Some ones I have found few researching are the ones here.
Surnames: LeFevre, Nellis, Rubens, Destiche Cravillion
I am researching the LeFevre, Nellis, Rubens, Destiche with connections to Cravillions, Ducats, Namurs & others who immigrated from areas of Belgium to the Northeast side of Brown County, Southern Door County and Kewaunee Counties in the 1855-1857 time period. I have a great deal of information already accumulated and researched and am hoping to connect some of the missing links and pieces that exist. If you connect with any of these families, please let me know, as perhaps we can fill in some missing details for one another!
ALSO, I wondered if any of you have went to research the documents on file with any of the local historical societies, libraries, and/or the Mormon Church locally/in Brown County, Wisconsin or elsewhere? If so, I am interested in learning of information or documentation that can be found by visiting any of these locations, to determine the value of time put into doing just that.
