1876 "Pioneer Life in Kenosha County" by H.M. Simmons
To My Blog Readers:
I found found this twenty one page historical sketch, written by H.M. Simmons, July 4, 1876, one of the most personal and interesting histories written about Kenosha County. He writes, in detail, about the first settlers of the County in 1835 and mentions Somers and our early settlers. I especially like that it was written in 1876 when the information was current and pioneers were still around to be interviewed and tell their stories. In my opinion, you won't read a better history story!
Below is a link to the web site that provides a digital copy of the entire twenty one page story. I hope you enjoy!
