A Bit of the Old Sod
By Bernard Michaels
The poignant story of immigration and settlement of the Irish in Sheboygan County, this book gives an account of the Byron-Lima Settlement, a span of some thirty miles in which over 600 Irish families settled. The community's irregular borders ran from Kennedy's Corners in Lima to the frame church of Byron's St. John. The town of Mitchell, Sheboygan County is at the heart of this story.
