The Illustrated Historical Atlas of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin (Chicago, 1876), 10, 48, informs us that twenty-five years later the following families with Dutch names lived in Milwaukee County, north of Milwaukee in Town Eight, and along the shore of Lake Michigan: Schram, Koeslag, Loosen, Schoof, Looysen, Baas, Westendorp, Vruwink, Obma, Swart, Cappon, and Grootemaat.--henk 15:04, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

On April 10, 1848 a shipload of Dutch emigrants set sail from the Netherlands and arrived in New York 33 days later. Aboard this ship were four families who chose the Fox Point area for their new home. They were the DeSwarte, Tellier, Vruwink, and Koeslag families. It took these Milwaukee bound immigrants an additional 12 days to reach their new homes in what are now the villages of Fox Point and Bayside.

Nineteenth-century Dutch immigration, numbering about 200 people annually before 1845, increased that year to 800 and averaged 1,150 annually over the next decade. That movement stemmed from religious and economic discontent in the Netherlands; a potato famine (1845-1846) and high unemployment combined with a division in the Reformed Church that pitted conservative Calvinists against the increasingly liberal State Church forced many Dutch to emigrate. At the same time, three clergymen organized colonies on the Midwestern frontier. In 1848 Father Theodore J. Van den Broek (1783-1851) established a Catholic community in Little Chute, near Green Bay, Wisconsin. Two conservative Reformed pastors, Albertus Van Raalte (1811-1876) and Hendrik P. Scholte (1805-1868) founded respectively, Holland, Michigan (1847) and Pella, Iowa (1847). Once these communities were established, printed brochures and private correspondence triggered a persistent flow of newcomers until 1930, when immigration quotas and the Great Depression closed out that 85-year period of migration. During that era, Dutch immigration followed typical northern European patterns, increasing or decreasing in response to economic prospects at home or in the United States. With peaks in the mid-1870s, the early 1880s and 1890s, and again from 1904 to 1914, a total of about 400,000 Netherlanders immigrated to the United States between 1845 and 1930.
