History of the township and village of Mazomanie, Wisconsin

The first settlement in Mazomanie was made by Charles Wilson, Joshua Rhodes and Alfred Senier in 1843. These three men arrived about Christmas of that year, and for some weeks lived in a deserted Indian wigwam which was located about three miles southwest of the present village. Charles Wilson was the duly authorized agent of the British Temperance Emigration Society which had been formed in Liverpool, England, the previous year.

The country into which they came was almost an unbroken wilderness. The nearest settlers were at Cross Plains, ten miles southeast. When Wilson, Rhodes and Senier came from Milwaukee by way of Madison, they stopped at the log houses of Berry Haney and John Thomas at Cross Plains. Only a few other families were in that vicinity, and the first settlement had been made there only three years before. Madison had been laid out and named in 1835, and seven years later was a scattered village of less than four hundred people. In June, 1848, a census showed there were three hundred and forty-two inhabitants, seventy-one buildings, four church organizations and two printing offices. Three years later the population was six hundred and twenty-six.
