Moundville Station is a post village on the Wisconsin Central line. which runs north and south through this town. It was settled in 1848, and 1890 had a population of about 400. This place is fourteen miles SW of Montello, and ten miles N of Portage, the nearest banking point. It contains a church and a school. Following is a summary of its principal business interests: C.A. Mettitt, lumber dealer and proprietor of a general store; H. Ennis, merchant; J. Smith, blacksmith; C. Ellison is postmaster. This was taken from "Come Back in Time" Volume I: Communities, By Elaine Reetz. Some census will show Moundville as a town. 1900 it showed on the Marquette Co. map as town S of Endeavor, WI. But todays map it is the name of the township. Hope this helps. Dee

Dee, Yes that helps a lot. I am using a new program I found (GenSmarts), that checks you files(in several different programs), and gives you ideas on where to look and why. I have found several cities, in various states that I couldn't match to a county. (using USGS). Thanks for the post.

I have been doing research in Marquette County and Columbia County area. I have obtain listings of some of the cemeterys in that area and have a listing for Moundville if you would want me to look up a name for you. The cemetery isn't on the net but I sent for it. I also have people in this area from my family.

In Moundville do you have any others by the same last name? The Cemetery must be by the Church. Is this part
of your family? Do you have a listing for Louis Hoffman in a different Cemetery? Wife, Mary Marie Johnson both d. around 1960? Dee

I want to thank everyone for their response. I got it wrong it was not a death in 1851 but two births in 1851. Luther John Hawes Aug 7, 1851 and Orpha Hawes, Jan 8, 1854. Both born in Moundville, WI. There are 8 chldren in this family. Two of them died in Oxford, WI(that I know of) Ursulla Hawes, Feb 5, 1887, and Permelia Ann Hawes, Sep 5, 1913. They were both born in OH. These are not in my direct line, I was doing some fill in research.

Yes I have been reseacrhing the Bartels and or Bartells name there and have info on that family. If you can give me around about years I will pull out my listings and look for them. I have been doing the Bartels from Mary and Sarah Peake who both married Bartel brothers back in the 1800's, and have some of the family up to living today. E-mail me directly instead of posting, would be a lot easier.

Yes, there is a Moundville, Wisconsin. I have ancestors who settled there when they came to the United States from England and Ireland. It is just north of Madison and Portage on highway 39. I was able to find it using Google maps. They put a pointer there even though there is no name printed on the map itself. I think it is a very small place. Good luck finding it.
I also have ancestors who died in that area, one even in 1850.

I also have relatives from Moundville according to the 1905 state census by the names of Whoriskey and Collins. I am told they are buried in St. John's Catholic cemetery but cannot find the cemetery listed any where.

Any help would be appreciated.
