Don't know what your family lore is, but Vilas County was named after Secretary of the Interior, William Vilas.
It was split off of Oneida County, in 1893.
William was also an officer during the Civil War, Postmaster General and a Wisconsin Senator (state or US, I don't honestly know).
Stephen and Mickey Walker
Looking for Ole and Hilma (Thorson)Jacobson of Lac du Flambeau, in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
