"History of Trempealeau County Wisconsin, 1917":

Chapter 8:


-As transcribed from page 97

Sumner was settled in 1856 in the vicinity of the present village of Osseo. The first settlers were E. M. Sexton and W. A. Woodward. A year later a postoffice was established at Beef River Station, a mile from the present village, and George Silkworth appointed postmaster. The present village had its beginning in 1858, when W. H. and C. G. Thomas built and rated the first store. Excellent articles on the subject are found elsewhere in this volume.
