24 Aboard the ship "Trumbull"", from Antwerp to New York, 4 March 1856 to 22 April 1856 FRANCOIS, Adrien (I1643)
25 According to a story about how Thomas died, while he was having a stroke the town doctor was riding by on his horse to deliver a baby. One of Thomas' children ran out a started waving their arms at the doctor to get his attention. Unfortunately, he just waved back and kept on going thinking that the child was just saying hello. CORRIGAN, Thomas Joseph (I1)
26 Adrien Francois was born 17 March 1834 in the village of Hevillers, Brabant Wallon Province, Belgium. In 1856 he immigrated to the U.S. along with his wife, Marie Francoise Sufriangville (ca. 1834-1862) , and their three children, Adam, Marie Florentine, and Celestine; others in the party were Adrien's brother Pierre, Pierre's family, and a neighbor from Hevillers, Jean Joseph Tonnon. The party proceeded to the then frontier Town of Brussels in Door County, Wisconsin, where in May 1857 they made land claims and established the foundations of the village of Misiere.

Adrien's wife, Marie Francoise, died in 1862. The following year Adrien married Fulvie Adelaide Piette (1846-1905), a fellow immigrant from Belgium who had arrived in the Misiere area with her parents in 1857. Adrien and Fulvie had six children, all born at Misiere.

Adrien continued to reside at Misiere until the mid-1880s. He was involved there in many enterprises, including farming and the operation of a saloon and dance hall. He also held a number of civil posts, including postmaster at Misiere, member of the Door County Board, and Clerk of the Board of the Town of Brussels. He was also among the founders of the St. Michaels Catholic Church, which was built upon land donated by Adrien.

Adriens twice lost he home to fire, first in the Great Fire of 8 October 1871 which laid waste to a large portion of northeastern Wisconsin, and again in a fire that destroyed his home and saloon in 1885.

After his time in Door County Adrien first moved to Green Bay, where he engaged in a brick-making business with his brother. He subsequently moved to Springville (later named Plover) in Portage County, Wisconsin. He died there 5 January 1900 and is buried in Saint Stephen Cemetery.

His name at birth was spelled Adrien. During his years in Door County the spelling most commonly used was Adrian. In his last years he was mostly known by the name Andrew, perhaps as an attempt to anglicize his name when he was no longer a member of the dominantly French-speaking community at Misiere. Also, in some late records, including his obituary, his surname was recorded in the anglicized form as Frances or Francis.

Died at Springville:
Andrew Frances of Springville, who died Friday evening of apoplexy, aged 66 years was buried from St. Stephen's Catholic church Monday morning at 9 o'clock Rev. W. J. Rice officiating.
Mr. Frances was born in Belgium on March 17, 1832, and came to this country when a small boy. After residing 35 years in Door county and 14 years at Green Bay, he came to Springville in 1894, and bought a small farm on which he had lived ever since. He leaves a large family of children all grown and married including Mrs. Mary Simon, Mrs. Josephine Gesion [Gyrion] and Mrs. Lucy Simon of Springville.
He died at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon as the result of a third stroke of paralysis received the previous Wednesday. (Stevens Point Daily Journal, Stevens Point, Wisconsin; Saturday 13 January 1900 p.5

28 After the marriage of Amos and Phoebe Dakins, they lived in Canada for nearly twelve years. In June 1850, the family started for Wisconsin. By wagon they traveled sixty miles to Port Huron, where they took passage on a boat and reached Sheboygan. Journeying by wagon to Fond du Lac, WI, Mr. Dakins, with the aid of his brother-in-law, built a sailboat, on which they sailed up the Wolf river, as far as Fremont. Here he bought 160 acres of government land, and after cutting timber on the same, he sold eighty acres, and for five years they resided in a log cabin. Then Mr. Dakins bought forty acres, upon which stood a comfortable dwelling.

Amos Dakins [note: I assume Amos, Jr] enlisted at Fremont March 23, 1864, in Co. B, Thirty-seventh Wis. V. I, which was sent to Virginia, and participated in the battle of Petersburg. Mr. Dakins was taken sick in Virginia, and came home on a two months furlough. Rejoining his regiment, he remained till the close of the war; meanwhile the mother sold the Fremont property, and purchased eighty acres of partially improved land in Lind township. Here they lived until 1873, when they came to Buena Vista township, Portage county.

Mr. Dakins bought forty acres of wild land, and built the home in which his son, Albert H. now lives. In 1890 he removed to McDill, where he died May 16 1892, aged eighty years and one day. His wife now resides with her son, Albert H.
