GENEOLOGY OF TOMAHAWK

Postby YANKEELADEE » Sun Dec 31, 2006 12:05 am

My Gr-gr Uncle Orrickenner Keenan Welty was raised by Alonzo Weller (mother was Martha Post) in Amhurst and then married and moved to Tomahawk. I understand he was a pioneer of this area. Does anyone know ANYTHING about this man? He was prominent in the Tomahawk area in from 1860 through 1890's as I understand it. where can I find newsclips on this man for those years?
thanks for any input...wendy

You may want to check with our local library as they have newspapers on microfilm.

I found this on the Wis. history web site. Might be a place to start. An Obit. should have some of the information you are looking for.
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.

hi all.. i am new to this site. i spent my first few years in tomahawk. and a few vacations as well. tomahawk is a special place to me. tomahawk is where my lineage runs through. alex robarge is my great great grandfather (married to levina bouchard) he was one of the original settlers to tomahawk. i remember the great north woods and the friendly people. hopefully,i can gather some money together for another trip. my wife has never been up that way, so when i go i will want to have it planed perfect. well thats all for now just like to say hi again... aaron (aaronallstar@yahoo.com)
