Lost Poem Found!, John Daggett c.1862 MN

Noticed the name DAGGETT which many of you are researching.

My family (Porter) came from Fairfield Co., CT to Steuben Co., NY (in 1840's to Dodge Co., Wisconsin, then in 1850's to Blue Earth Co. Minnesota).

Many other fellow New Englanders, have followed the same basic route about the same timeframe.

A few weeks back I posted to the Blue Earth Co., Minnesota GenWeb Archives a poem which I recently transcribed, written by a one John Daggett (see Miscellaneous - Letters and Poems). The poem is circa 1862 from the early Minnesota frontier.

Mr. Daggett is NOT related to me in any way but, the poem made through the 140 plus years in my great aunt's family notes and clippings as a fellow resident of Garden City, MN so I decided to publish it for local flavor and perhaps to return it to a decendant of John Daggett. See actual poem and background notes in the Archive.


Any relation to you? Hope it connects in some missing way. The work has finally reached international publishing status after 140+ years!
