Abstract William Scholes and wife Ann Mills Scholes (daughter of Samuel Mills and Alice Stocks) emigrated from Oldham, Lancashire, England to Marquette County, Wisconsin, US, in 1849, with their six children, with the help of the mutual-aid Potters’ Emigration Society. Five more children were born in Wisconsin. William was a cotton carder in England, a farmer in Wisconsin, and a Civil War soldier who died at Vicksburg, Mississippi, in 1864. Seven of their eleven children are believed to have living descendants. Surnames: Audiss, Dixon, Hull, Hume, Mills, Mozley, Park(e)s, Scholes, Sherwin, Stocks, Smith.
