Query: Rockwell - Elkhorn, WI

Surname(s): Rockwell

Locales: Elkhorn, WI

Query Text:


My search started with a Rockwell & Co's banknote signed by LeGrand Rockwell.

The search has shown that Mr. LeGrand Rockwell is credited with being one of the founders of Elkhorn, Wisconsin (the Christmas Card town) in the mid 1800's. Mr. LeGrand Rockwell is also credited with starting two banks in Elkhorn, one the site of an 1865 bank robbery that happened when the town was celebrating the end of the civil war.

I am searching, in vain, for more on LeGrand Rockwell and his family tree. I have found quite a lot in the History of Walworth County by Albert Beckwith, but not enough.

Any suggestions?

Thank You!
