Thanks, PalmTree.  I got in and I'm ransacking the Wisconsin press right now.

My best find so far, although not as good as the report on the giant hair ball that gg-uncle Jack found in the stomach of a "beef creature" in 1875.

Thanks for all your comments & I finally got in, so thanks for that tip Paul. Managed to get absolutely loads of info, even though it's not easy to navigate. It's so expensive normally, I'm sure if they dropped their prices more people would take out subscriptions.

I have searched almost non-stop and found dozens of useful articles and I haven't even got out of Marquette County, Wisconsin yet.

Ellenmai,
You thanked me but I need to thank you, if you had not posted that you were having access problems I would not have known about the free weekend. Rootschat teamwork in action.  ;D

I've accessed obituaries which had lots of useful information. Also some other articles, including a possible scandal 😱😱😁. So thanks for the heads up.
