My 3x great grandfather was born between 1826-1830 in Watertown, Wisconsin.  His name was Alexander McNeal.  I know his father & mother were born in Ireland according to later census records.  Reading about the early history of Wisconsin I understand that many of the Wisconsin towns weren't even organized at his time.  It is possible his father was mining??  Not sure where to look to find any McNeal's in Wisconsin in the 1830s.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Can't give you an exact answer as to where to search but here are some tips.  Watertown was settled by Irish and German farmers.  Some Irish Catholic records from the mid-1850's will be associated with Fox Lake, WI.  Other records from this period will be found in the St Luke's/St Peter's/St John's Cathedral records in Milwaukee.  This area was part of Father Kundig's mission.  If your family purchased land in this area for farming the purchase was recorded and available on the internet.  The Dodge County Jefferson County Genealogy Society in Watertown would be a good source for info.  The Watertown library has books on this period as well.
