1855 State Census 

This index is for all of Shawano County and these are among the very first "settlers", with the county being only 2 years old and the state being only 7 years old at the time, too.  The 1855 Wisconsin territorial census recorded only the heads of household, number of white males, number of white females, number of "colored" males, number of "colored" females, and the numbers of residents who were deaf and dumb, blind, insane, and of foreign birth.  This is available on microfilm through LDS Family History Centers or at the WI Historical Society.
