These items were collected during research of newspapers and other sources. They are intended as an aid to those interested in finding information on homes and farms in the Burlington area. Included are references to newspaper reports of people buying, renting, or leasing homes or farms; building homes; buying, renting, or leasing land; moving to or from residences or farms; making improvements; etc.  The items were collected at random; therefore, this database does not include every such event that ever happened in Burlington or every such event that was reported in the newspapers. A companion database, EVENTS IN BURLINGTON AND VICINITY 1835 - 2012, contains information on events that occurred in, or articles that mentioned, Burlington and other towns and villages in the area surrounding Burlington. Death, birth, and other information primarily on people who have lived in or near Burlington, Wisconsin, since about 1835 is in a database called PEOPLE OF BURLINGTON AND VICINITY.  Marriage information is in a database called MARRIAGES OF PEOPLE OF BURLINGTON AND VICINITY.

The research is on-going, so the database is subject to additions, corrections, and other modifications. Our intent is to update the database from time to time as the research progresses. The items are generally presented in summary or capsule form; for the full text, the user should consult the source document(s). Because information was collected from several sources, some conflicts are inevitable. Also, both the source documents and this database were prepared by individuals who are subject to all the frailties of the human race. If you spot a material error, please bring it to our attention, along with supporting documentation or a citation to a searchable reference. The corrections will be made in the next update. Names have been spelled, for the most part, as they appeared in the source documents. In some cases, but not all, alternate spellings are included.

Information on the location and availability of documents and records is listed on the "References and Sources" page of this website. There may be other locations where the documents and records are available.  Abbreviations and acronyms are listed on the Abbreviations page.

While we would like to be able to provide copies of articles, we do not have the volunteer help necessary to do that. The microfilms of the newspapers are available at the Burlington Public Library, the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, and possibly at other research facilities in southeastern Wisconsin, including the University of Wisconsin - Parkside.  They may also be available through your local library's reference desk.  The Burlington Genealogical Society sometimes has members willing to do some research work for a fee and expenses.  That Society can be accessed through the "Related Sites" link near the top of our home page.

Dec. 27, 1835    F 11/16/1898 - On Dec. 27, 1835, Moses Smith, William Whiting, B. C. Pierce / Perce and Lemuel Smith built a shanty in grove in river bend on east side of Fox river. They cut a large white oak tree near where malt house now stands, built a rude log hut on present farm of David Bushnell, spent 3 days prospecting and surveying on both sides of the river, and finally constructed a cabin on the west side.

 

1836                 F 11/16/1898 - In January 1836 Enoch D. Woodbridge built the body of a log house on the east side, which afterwards formed part of the tavern kept by Ruel Nims. In February 1836 Nathan H. Darling made a claim for Nelson R. Norton on what is known as the Rooker farm. In April 1836 Moses Smith took up his residence in a shanty on the west side of the river and in May built a log house near where the Ayers mill is situated. In the latter part of May, James Nelson built a log house and blacksmith shop near what is now the south end of Durgin's bridge. In June B. C. Pierce / Perce erected a building for a store, which was recently standing on the bank of the mill pond just outside the old fair grounds.

 

April 1836         Moses Smith built shanty where Burlington Feed company now stands. (F 6/6/1929 - Paper prepared by Elizabeth Wilson for Historical Society.)

 

 May 1836         Moses Smith is credited with having built the first house within what was, in 1916, the city limits. He located his claim on the west side of the Fox River and, in May 1836, built a log house, having passed the winter in a hastily constructed shanty on the east side in company with William Whiting, B. C. Perce, and Lemuel Smith. ("Racine, Belle City of the Lakes, and Racine County," vol. I, 1916, p. 158.)

 

1836                 F 8/15/06, L. O. Whitman reminiscence - Moses Smith built the first log house in Burlington in 1836.

Fourth log cabin - a double log structure of large proportions - built by Origen Perkins near site later occupied by the Brick & Tile factory.

 

1836                 The first permanent building in the village was a log house built by Enoch D. Woodbridge, on the east side of the river, which afterward formed a part of a tavern kept by Ruel Nims; but a house built by Moses Smith in May 1836 near where the Perkins mill was situated was considered the first residence in Burlington. Smith's house stood until 1875. (Burlington Schools, Board of Education report, 1898, p. 19.)

 

1836                 Some time in the fall of 1835 or spring of 1836, Enoch D. Woodbridge made a claim to a quarter section of land at the forks of the Fox and White Rivers, lying on both sides of the Fox and extending some 20 or 30 rods north to the mouth of the White River. Immediately after making the claim, Woodbridge built a small log house about 12 feet square. In July 1836 Enoch D. Putnam built a log house 19 feet square about 14 feet east of Woodbridge's building and filled up the space between the two buildings with frame work. (Enoch D. Putnam's April 13, 1885, letter in S 4/18/1885.)

 

1836                 In summer of 1836, Enoch D. Putnam built a house on the high land on the east side of the Fox river, about 70 or 80 rods below the mouth of White River. Only other houses in the vicinity were those of Moses Smith, on the west side of the river and about 75 or 80 rods above the mouth of White River, and about a half mile up the river was another house in which Milo Hayes and his family lived. Palmer Gardner had also built a shanty on the west side of what is now called Gardner's Prairie. (Enoch D. Putnam's March 29, 1885, letter in S 4/4/1885.)

 

1836                 In the fall of 1836, Dr. Edward G. Dyer came to Foxville, staying at brother-in-law Origen Perkins' rough shanty, about 10 by 12 feet, made of logs and puncheons split out of logs as substitutes for boards. There was no chimney, except a hole for smoke. The fire was in one corner on the ground, with a flat stone for a chimney back. Dr. Dyer stayed there about 5 weeks. (150+ Years, page 4.)  (Note:  A puncheon floor is a floor made of logs sawed in half with the convex side down and the flat side up. - F 2/27/1930.)
