Richard Massy Yeilding, Jr., sold his holdings in Batavia, New York and, in the Fall of 1855, moved his family to Grant Co.,  Wisconsin.There they set up a plot of land near the Blue River and the new town of Muscoda.  Richard continued his profession of Veterinary Medicine while his sons, William and Alexander farmed.  Later Alexander would try his hand at merchandising.


It is not clear whether this land was Richard or William Massy's.  William moved here with his father, Richard, mother, Margaret, and brother, Alexander.  Here he married Mary Jane Wakeman.  Family lore says he married first, a Sue or Susan, but no other trace of her or a first marriage for William has been found.  Could this memory of a Sue or Susan have been Richard Jr.'s first wife and not William's?  That sometimes happens in "family lore".

Some time around 1857, older half brother, Richard Massy III, travelled to Wisconsin from Detroit with his wife Elizabeth and their first child, William.  William was about 3 years old at the time and Elizabeth may have been pregnant, because while in Wisconsin she delivered her second child, another boy, Charles.
