During the mid nineteenth century, Monroe, Green County, Wisconsin, USA had two banks. One was N. R. Usher & Co. also known as Usher & Thrall.1 It was not a bank of issue, and after three or four years of trading, it closed in 1864, probably as a response to the National Banking Act which gave incentives for banks to submit to Federal supervision.

George Evans Thrall who was born on 4 February 1821 and died on 29 April 1905, is known to have moved to Monroe with his family and he went into the banking firm of Usher and Thrall.
