PGS INDEX OF NAMES IN

TOWN of GIBRALTAR

(incl. Town of Chamber's Island 1858-1859)

updated 23 May 2010


This is a PGS index of names in the Door County Civil Towns as listed in Martin's "History of Door County"-1881 created by Sue HOHNEKE.  Names are alphabetical under each of their towns on this website.  The pages on which each name is found is at the end of their entry. Go to HISTORY OF DOOR COUNTY Page to find how to see the original pages of the book.

 

This Index Page is for the Town of Gibraltar which includes Pages 51 to 56 in Martin's History of Door County-1881 and the Town of Chambers' Island (9 Nov 1858-May 1859) was turned over to the Town of Gibraltar and is listed on P. 56 of Chas. I. MARTIN's History of Door Co.-1881.

 

There have been some added clarifications, for instance state or county references, have been added in italics for researchers when known.  Much of the information that is in MARTIN's History of Door County is included here in this index but has been put in sequence by date when possible to help researchers.

 

Chas. I. MARTIN was not infallible, there are some errors in his volume.  However, his History of Door County is a wonderful resource-as a starting place for family researchers in early Door County. Please use it as a starting place to do research through records. 

 

Whenever a transcription is made, errors are possible.  Because of that I hope you will check MARTIN's "HISTORY of DOOR COUNTY-1881" original pages.-Sue HOHNEKE 

 

We welcome any additions or corrections to this index, which we will note in italics.  Any pictures of individuals or families will be appreciated as well to be linked with their names.  Please send them to the PGS e-mail: pengensoc@yahoo.com
