Iris, Yes, I am sure of the geography and Josiah's presence there (census, land deeds, a bronze road monument to Voree with Josiah's name on it, etc.). A mile or two west of Burlington is the county line between Racine Co and Walworth Co. The first sections of land west of that boundary, and on the river (name I forgot), and on a state road, is location of historic Voree. It's not there now, except for a historic bronze plate. My Josiah's land deed has Strang's first wife Mary P Strang, as one of the witnesses. Strang went on to Beaver Island 3 or 4 years after setting up Voree.
