1805 to 1830/Immigration

In the first three decades of the 1800s, immigrants of German, English, Irish, and French ancestry moved to this region to clear the fields and make a living for their families. Settling this area was a slow process. From the earliest days, the settlers realized that prosperity would depend upon the establishment of commerce. The ability to compete in the commercial world was, in turn, dependent upon transportation. Transporting goods to and from Sidney, and to markets elsewhere, would be the key to success.
