In Reply to: Fox-Wisconsin Canal of 1850s by Ken Nordtvedt of 92

The book I have, EARLY DAYS AT THE FOX-WISCONSIN PORTAGE by Ina Curtis (1974) give the dates ( on a quick scann by me) of starting the canal in June 1849 and first boat, governerment steamer Boscolbel made the trip thru the canal July 30, 1876. A lot of delays in construction. . There was also Fort Winnebago, surgeon Quarters still reamin as museum, in Portage, WI., Columbia CO.Don't have any info on Mormons in the area. Good luck
