Nekimi Township

Nekimi is what in most states would be called a township. Here in Wi the official phrasing is "Civil Town of Nekimi." Pronounce it Neh-ky-my with long "i" sounds. It means sugar bush (I've forgotten if it's in Menoninee or Winnebago). This is a rural area south-southwest of Oshkosh. You won't see it on a highway map, but if you go to the Winnebago County government web page and click on GIS (Geographic Information Systems) you should be able to pull up a map. Settled in the 1840s by Yankees and Welsh, with some German-speaking Swiss along the eastern edge.

Thanks. I had never heard of it and I grew up near Oshkosh. Is there any history available on it? Is it still in existance?

The family I have that settled there is NOE. I don't have all of the spousal names listed so I can't be sure. Does NOE show up on your records?

No pun intended, but NO -- I do not have any NOE. I'm hoping you or someone else may have a LOWER or FARRAND.

My husband's ancestors settled in the Nekimi Township area in the late 1840's. Many of them are buried in the Zoar Cemetery. I am trying to translate/decipher the Welsh writing on the bottom of some of their headstones. Is there anyone that can help me?
My email is christhiessen@windstream.net

Thank you,
