Sowerby Barn - Gratiot WI

In 1881 this farm was settled by Isaac Sowerby, who was born in Westmoreland, England and arrived in the US in 1851. In June 1866 he moved from Montana to Gratiot Township, Lafayette Co., bought 160 acres of land, and made the improvements and built a fine house, costing $1,000, then a barn costing about $500. He later owned 200 acres of land with his wife Sarah and six children.
