Nicolas Bourlier, son of Georges & Anne

Atop "Osseo Ridge", in northern Trempealeau County, Wisconsin, stands an eight-foot concrete monument to Nicolas Bourlier, Turns out he lived nearby as a hermit or recluse, for many years. In early 1891 he died and was buried at a local cemetery, then in spring was reburied in New York City or Louisville, Ky. courtesy of Emile Bourlier (loomed large in Louisville horse-betting services). Emile was a nephew. Adele Bourlier, a sister, witnessed Nicolas' signature in New York City, on his "intent to become a citizen", as he and all siblings were born in the city of Montecheroux, (far-eastern France), and of course were expected to so register as immigrants

Any helps or hints on Nicolas would be very appreciated. Bill Allen, River Falls, Wisconsin
