Query: Boeckle(y) of Perry County

I am looking for information concerning Tell City and the Swiss Colonization Society. These two subjects were mentioned in the will of my g-g-g grandfather, Andreas Boeckle(y) (spelled in other various fashions). His will stated that he owned stock in the Swiss Col. Soc. and that he owned lots of land in Tell City. He arrived in the U.S. from Austria in 1852 and settled in Cincinnati. He married Catherine Mohr, who was born in Switzerland. Andreas died in 1861. Are there any existing land records for Tell City or information concerning members of the Swiss Col. Soc.? Thanks for you help.
