New Glarus, Swiss history, Wisconsin history, Swiss colony, Imigration
Published histories of New Glarus have been inconsistent in the names and numbers of original settlers. They generally peg the number at 108, 118 or even 122. The Settlers' Monument in New Glarus, erected in 1915 to commemorate those pioneers, has a listing (only the men!) that differs somewhat from written histories. A comprehensive listing based upon the primary sources of the time has never been fully enumerated or fully referenced.
