I am researching The Lauderdale Family of Walworth County, Wisconin. I am trying to connect those Lauderdale's to The Earls of Lauderdale from Scotland. I have gone so far as the early 1800's when John Lauderdale settled in New York with his family. I know of nine generations from him leading to The Midwestern States of Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. My 3-Great Grandfather was James Lauderdale who, along with James Stewart, purchased much of the land within LaGrange Township and surrounding Lauderdale Lakes from The Government for $1.25 per acre in 1841.
Is anyone else researching this same subject? Perhaps we can share information.
Is anyone else researching this same subject? Perhaps we can share information."The LaGrange Pioneers" book, published by LaGrange Ladies' Aid Society in 1935 has a good deal of the early pioneer life in Walworth County and would be worthy of your pursuit if you are researching Walworth County. comments powered by Disqus
