In Reply to: Death or Divorce Record Dodge Co 1850-1855 by Richard Peterson of 321

The Dodge County Court House burned in the 1870's. There are few death records even for the 1890's. You might try looking for a church record if you know the religion and town/township. There weren't a lot of churches at that time so that wouldn't be too difficult. Some of the church records are very good. Wisconsin became a state in 1849. Records prior to 1900 are sparse. I don't have any information about divorce records.

Was Issac a farmer? There was an 1850 agricultural census that has interesting information.

You might contact this society on your surname.
