Example of first settlers arriving in Fayette.Co.IA, coming from Rock.Co.WI
When Fayette.Co.IA opened for settlement in 1849-50, numerous families from Rock.Co.WI, relocated.

Fayette County In the 1850’s, T.D. Peterman/1902
…1850…The McMillian, Kinyon, Winston families lived in the same neighborhood in the NW townships of Union, Porter. Center, Magnolia, the 'to-be' Evansville village area of Rock.Co.WI,  30mi south of Madison; and all would move in 1850 to Fayette.Co.IA.  McMillian to Sec 5, Illyria.Twp,  Kinyon settled north of the Turkey River, and Alexander Winston to near Earl’s Mill, West.Auburn, Auburn.Twp.
…1850May22…John McMillan (in 1900, living between Elgin/West.Union), started from Janesville are, Rock.Co.WI, to explore for in Fayette.Co.IA for a place to remove, too.
…1850EarlyJune…McMillian crossed the river at Clayton, Clayton.Co.IA, arrived at Elkader; the next day reached the Gilson farm area in the NW corner of Illyria.Twp.
….1850June…McMillian selected & entered the NW1/4, Sec 5, Illyria.Twp, east of the Gilson farm in the ‘to-be’ Illyria/Highland village area.  On the ridge trail from Elkader to the Gilson farm there was only the Dolan cabin.
….1850AfterJune…McMillian retuned to Rock.Co.WI. 
….1851May…McMillan started back from Rock.Co.WI to his claim in Iowa with his family, with household goods and wagon pulled by 2 yoke (4) of breaking (sod) oxen.  It was a rainy year, trails were soft/muddy, streams high to ford. The group drove some cattle and hogs through, also trying to bring some chickens. 
……The father of Ed Kinyon of Fayette & a Holbrook came with the McMillians.  Mr. Kinyon, wife & 5boys, came with 4 yoke (8) of oxen, one team of horses, two wagons with a buggy hitched to a wagon.
……Within 2wks, they reached the landing across from Clayton.IA village.  It took three days to cross the Mississippi River by flatboats, paddles & poles.
……The father of Ed Kinyon of Fayette & a Holbrook came with the McMillians.  The group drove some cattle and hogs through, also trying to bring some chickens. 
……At the Clayton crossing Thos. Smith, Dr. Stafford, David & Wm. Stafford passed the McMillian group, all thought to located in Fayette.Co.
…..McMillian lost one of his yoke of oxen on the steep climb out of Clayton village.
…..Alexander Winston overtook the McMillian party between Clayton and Elkader, on his way to West.Union and on to the Earl Mill area of West.Auburn village/plat.
…..At Elkader the Turkey River was too high to ford, there was no ferry.  They  borrowed two small boats from the grist miller.  Their wagon slid off the boats, drowning their chickens.  They drew the boats/wagon out of the water by using their cattle.  The cattle swam across okay, the hogs forced by riders on horseback with a level of difficulty.
…1851Jun11…McMillian reached Patch Prairie, their claim location.  By that time Sam. Holton, McLaughlin, Gallagheer had also moved into the area.
…1851Jun12…McMillian went to Elgin for mill cut lumber to build a shanty from forked stakes driven into ground,  with boards leaned against a ridge pole in lean-to fashion, and a quilt on one end for door/window. 
…1851July… McMillian built/moved into a log cabin/house.  Francis Robbins & David Moats arrived, and took up a location just east, over the Clayton.Co. line.
…1851Fall…Illyria.Twp had not organized yet; 175 Whig & 125 Democratic votes were case in Fayette.Co.
…1852…McMillian took grain to Earl’s Mill at West.Auburn for grist.
…1853…Illyria.Twp organized, with only 10 votes cast.

NOTE:  Alex Winston brothers, Rueben, Charles and William were likely traveling with Alex as all ended up in West.Auburn village.
......Since Alex and Reuben Winston, in 1852 recorded 40a in Illryia.Twp, along the ridge trail from Elkader to West.Union, like McMillian, they likely explored for land in 1850, returning to Rock.Co.WI and bringing back families in 1851.
...1852Nov01...Land.Entry:  Alexander Winston, 40a, SW1/4 of NE1/4, Sec 4, T93N, R7W, Fayette.Co.IA.....Illyria.Twp (llyria village area, 2mi E of Gilson farm).

I. Shaffer began to use it for a restaurant.  It has been owned by John W. Winston of West.Union for a number of years.  Schoeepe & Smith expect to tear it down and erect a 2-story  brick structure, 24x78, with a basement under the whole building.  It is possible that arrangements may be made at that time to put a second story on the First National Bank building (next/adj. building to the north), in order to furnish office rooms.  The move by Schoeepe & Smith is because of the recent purchase by the State Bank of Fayette of the building occupied by the E.B. Scobey Grocery (on the SW corner of Main/State), which will cause Mr. Scobey to move into his own building now occupied by the Schoeppe & Smith Meat Market (adj/south of the present/2000 Fayette Bank).  Just what Mr. Polleymounter will do is not settled at this time, but there are rumors of still another new business block (set of buildings) in the near future.

...1919Oct...Winston Building Disappearing--The old wooden building on the NW corner of Main/State has begun to disappear as workman assaulted it with axes and bars.  In a few days there will be little left except a heap of lumber.  Schoeppe & Smith, who bought it some time ago, will erect a new 2-story brick building as fast as possible, and will move their meat  market there.  The Decorah contractor, Mr. Coffsen, who built the new creamery (south end of Mechanic.St), has the contract for construction.

Note:  In 1922, Smith will by out Schoeepe's interest, and become Smith & Son's Grocery until the mid-1900's.
