Sawmill on the Menomonee
-As transcribed from page 61
A mill was built in 1822 on the Menomonee branch of the Chippewa, by permission of Lawrence Taliaferro, the Indian agent at Fort Snelling, and with the consent of the Sioux. Joseph Rolette and Judge James Lockwood, both of Prairie du Chien, were the financial backers of the proposition, and Wabasha's band of Sioux were also interested in it.44
