LUDAWIES, LUDOWISE posted by Debbie Jo Ludowise on Saturday, December 19, 1998

Seeking information on Nicholas LUDAWIES (Ludowise?) who lived near Cooperstown" 1870-1888. Known to have relocated to Chippewa County 1889. Also seeking information on railroad development in NE Wisconsin 1866-1890 both to west (toward Green Bay) and to north (toward Houghton, MI, on Lake Superior). May 29, 1879 naturalization papers reportedly state Nicholas LUDAWIES arrived New York 1866 from Luxembourg, living 'Cooperstown' 1879. Three major points in naturalization records match oral history to indicate LUDAWIES may be founding name for LUDOWISE. So far unable to locate any Manitowoc County record of marriage - Ludawies nor Ludowise - (reported 1872), record of births (at least 14 children), and record of deaths (at least 3 children died/buried 'near Cooperstown') according to family prayer books and oral history. I know Cooperstown is short distance from Brown County and have heard some vital records pre-1880 may not have been filed in proper county - folks filed when traveled for supplies to larger communities. Nicholas had three sons who started families - all with surname LUDOWISE. Michael G., born 1874 - moved to Houghton; Frank C., born 1880 - moved to Chippewa County; & Louis H., born 1893 moved to Chippewa County. Today, only 18 surname LUDOWISE families exist in USA, maybe world. Nearly 70% of all children born in a Ludowise household are girls, and over past century 33% of males children did not become fathers (either death, not marrying, or not propogating).

I am searching for information concerning my G Grandfather William B. VINCENT. He was born, according to his obit on 24 May 1852 in Canada. He was married to Josephine RABIDEAU on 1 Nov or 30 Oct 1877 in West DePere, Brown, Wisconsin and died on 14 Nov 1920 in Superior, Douglas, Wisconsin.
