From this book, I have discovered a historical society, who have produced several publications. Their website is here
This book has no information about my family, but I thought maybe I would do a slight Recap about what is in it. It is basically a few little stories that were presented at "The Head-of-the-Lake" historical society meetings. It was interesting reading about what this area was like back in the mid-late 1800's!

These records are listed at the back of the book...Unless I find out otherwise that I'm not allowed to post them, I will post my scanned photos here. Maybe they will help someone out in the future? By clicking on them it should open into a larger window to make viewing possible.
