Excerpt from The Last of the Flatboats: A Story of the Mississippi and Its Interesting Family of Rivers

Vevay, from which The Last of the F lat boats starts on its voyage down the Mis sissippi, is a beautiful little Indiana town on the Ohio River, about midway between Cincinnati and Louisville. The town and Switzerland County, of which it is the capi tal, were settled by a company of energetic and thrifty Swiss immigrants, about the year 1805. Their family names are still domi nant in the town. I recall the following as familiar to me there in my boyhood: Gri sard, Thiebaud, Le Clerc, Moreraud, De traz, Tardy, Malin, Golay, Courvoisseur, Danglade, Bettens, Minnit, Violet, Dufour, Dumont, Duprez, Medary, Schenck, and others of Swiss origin.
