What a great find! Thanks for sharing. Wish I knew of any ancestors who worked on the Canal. I did check just to be certain.



I just came across an interesting website in Rootsweb regarding the Irish
and the building of the Illinois and Michigan Canal southwest of Chicago.


The website contains the names of many people who were involved in the
construction of the canal - many Irish.
