    • Owned a farm at Ft. Howard, Wise.

      Could not find a city or county named Fort Howard in Wisconsin.

      But, in 1717 the French rebuilt the French Fort la Baye, a frontier outpost and trading post built by Nicolas Perrot in 1684, naming it Fort St. Francois (also spelled St Friancis). It was destroyed by Indians in 1728 and was not rebuilt for five years. It was abandoned in 1760.

      In 1761 it became British Fort Edward Augustus but was abandoned during the Pontiac Uprising (1763-1766).

      After the Revolutionary War this area was USA territory, the Territory of Wisconsin until 20 March 1848 when it became a state, in 1816, the Americans built Fort Howard on the same site. Some of these buildings have been preserved and moved to Heritage Hill, a Wisconsin State Museum.

      It must be this fort Howard that is referenced here.
