"History of Trempealeau County Wisconsin, 1917":

Chapter 7:

Influx Begins

-As transcribed from page 68

It was after 1850 that the settlement of the interior of the county took place, and for a period of fifteen years settlers poured into the valleys of Trempealeau County, principally from southern and eastern Wisconsin.  Many were from New York State originally, with a goodly number from the New England States. They came in all manner of ways, but steamboat, by stage, afoot, on horseback, with ox teams and covered wagons, with wagons drawn by horses, and often driving behind their caravan a herd of cattle, while tied to the rear of the wagon in a well-constructed box was the vociferous porker, proclaiming his presence at every stop.
