I know there is an Evergreen Cemetery in Centerville but I suspect that at one time the "Trempealeau Public Cemetery" was known as the Evergreen Cemetery. In a few cases, I have one spouse buried in the Trempealeau Cemetery and the other spouse buried in Evergreen. Are my suspicions correct? Evergreen = Trempealeau Public Brian L.

At least I did not see any. Your link did not go through. It is frustrating. When I went to Wisconsin about three years ago, I visited Whitehall. There is a newspaper publishing company. I don't recall whether it was Trempealeau Times or Whitehall Times, but it was in downtown Whitehall. I went inside and spoke with a woman who works there. They had packages of old historic fragile newspapers in the back, which they would not open. She ripped open a small portion and I could see very old, very fragile newspapers stacked one on top of each other. They probably would have been to fragile to even handle. The owner/publisher saw us back there and just about had a cow that one of his employees took me back there. I assume they were preserving these papers for a reason, but I have no clue if anything was done with them, or whether those involved in Chronicling America are aware of them. They might have something in them which would be of interest to me, considering my family lived in Arcadia, Trempealeau, County.

    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: Marilyn_Kenyon Surnames: Kenyon, Phelps Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.wisconsin.counties.trempealeau/1550/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I'm not sure of the date of death for my 2nd great grandfather, Lyman Kenyon. The Arcadia, Trempealeau Cemetery informs me he was buried there September, 1882. My 2nd great grandmother, Melissa (Phelps) Kenyon was buried there in January 1888. I do not have an obituary for either one of them Their son, Frederick Kenyon, died when he was 11 years old of an accidental gunshot. He died 28 June 1873. His death was reported in The Trempealeau Republican, Friday, July 4, 1873, page 3. Someone sent me a copy of it several years ago. I assume Lyman Kenyon died August or September of 1882, but, I am sort of perplexed why his wife, Melissa, listed herself as a widow on the 1880 census. Perhaps she was just naming herself as the head of household. So, from this I can see that the Trempealeau Republican reported on things involving Arcadia. The publication of it was limited. The Historical Society Library Microforms Rooms has some limited issues: Microfilm: P73-2947 N17309 Microfilm: P73-2948 2n P73-6318 P73-6319 These films might not cover when Lyman or Melissa died. I don't have the name of Lyman's father, which has been an ongoing search for me. If anyone can help me out with this, I would greatly appreciate it. I would have to come to Wisconsin to view these. It doesn't look like this is film I can order out of state. I flew to Wisconsin three years ago to do research on Lyman, but it would be difficult for me to make the trip again. I don't know if anyone who makes periodic trips to the Wisconsin Historical Society or a Wisconsin University could help me out with this.

    3. I still can't access the rootsweb site so will answer this way. Though I don't have a complete answer, just a guess. In 1907, there were few automobiles around, especially in rural areas like the town of Trempealeau. At least I'm guessing that's the location referred to. So probably "killed by the cars" refers to railroad cars. He might have been killed on the tracks, or at the station. Or it's remotely possible it was an industrial accident, in a brickyard or something of the kind. Though I don't know of much industry in that small town at the time. It's still a place of around 1000 or fewer, to the best of my knowledge. Anybody else have an idea. Glad to see something is up on one of the lists!

Author: DorisWaggoner Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.wisconsin.counties.trempealeau/1547.1.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: This list is a wonderful resource for anyone wanting links to sources in Trempealeau Co. However, I clicked on the LOC URL and it doesn't work. But if you remove the "n" from "american" and make it "america" then it does. What you get is a list of all the newspapers published in the county, the town they were published in, the dates published, who owned/printed the paper, the form it exists in (microfilm/online, etc), and what library it can be found in. A very valuable resource for all kinds of things besides vital records and obits. As an example, I have an ancestor involved in a court case in the county in 1889-1890, and again several times later leading up to his 1895 release from prison. The court documents themselves are lost, so newspaper records are important. Newspapers at the time were very sensational, so they must be read with buckets of salt. Very interesting, though, and sometimes they quote trial testimony at length. This list includes papers I haven't found through other sources, so I'll hunt through it again. Thanks!
