In writing this paper I have had before me a mental picture of a young couple who left Martigny-Bourg in bas-Valais in the summer of 1854. They sailed from Le Havre with their small son on the new American ship Brother Jonathan to the Port of New York and continued overland to Wisconsin. The study of Valaisan emigration, of which this paper is a part, is my attempt to put this rather blurry mental picture in focus.
