The series is of early Oconto County history before 1876. Richard Hall researched the newspapers of previous years, his personal notes and memories to compose each segment. His articles were originally published in the Oconto County Reporter for the year of Centennial Celebration for the United States. These articles later appeared as the first part of a 1976 Oconto County historical book written by his grandson, George Hall.
