History of Samuel Marshall and his Bank

My hobby is genealogy, and Samuel Marshall, the founder of M & I Bank was a 3rd cousin of mine. His first wife, Elizabeth Grubb was a 2nd cousin.I mention these things because it is within the context of research that I purchased this book. It certainly has historical value, especially concerning the cities of Milwaukee and Madison, WI.I would highly recommend the book for those that have an interest in the early history of these towns, the history of banking in Wisconsin, or a personal interest in Samuel Marshall or Charles Ilsley (Marshall's partner).The book is well illustrated. Illustrations from the M & I archives, and perhaps from the Wisconsin Historical Society, can be found throughout the pages. The research provided by the author, Ellen Langill, is exceptional. I know there were a couple of minor errors, but in general, she was able to reconstruct the story very well.Ellen Langill, is well known among Wisconsin historians as a major contributor and has written many other historical accounts of early Wisconsin life. Her style of writing is easy to read and flows well. She transitions from chapter to chapter with ease. Certainly this book is no exception. The illustrations, the bold print--even the cover are colorful. After all, what's wrong with enjoying yourself while doing research!
