The Wisconsin Historical Society has information about births, deaths, and marriages prior to 1907 ( ).

Here is the link for the Trempealeau County Museum: ( ).

You can also download a copy (free) of History of Trempealeau County, Wisconsin, which was written in 1917, and may provide some clues. Link here ( ).

No relation...just trying to help :)
