Now revealed: The Lottery of Life: Scholes Household 1814-2016, 4 Generations from Lancashire and Wisconsin Acquire US

 William Scholes (1814-1864), a cotton carder in one of many “darkish Satanic mills” of the Industrial Revolution in England, gained a staff’ lottery on New Yr’s Day 1849. That fall, he and spouse Ann Mills (1814-1875) and their youngsters arrived in central Wisconsin with excessive hopes and few abilities. In 37 chapters, “The Lottery of Life” follows the ancestral couple and their descendants — amongst them academics, telegraphers, engineers, homesteaders, energetic union members, farmers, inventors (from farm tools to recycling fluorescent lights), an encyclopedia supervisor, and a world authority on glass.
