    Notes 
    • After the marriage of Amos and Phoebe Dakins, they lived in Canada for nearly twelve years. In June 1850, the family started for Wisconsin. By wagon they traveled sixty miles to Port Huron, where they took passage on a boat and reached Sheboygan. Journeying by wagon to Fond du Lac, WI, Mr. Dakins, with the aid of his brother-in-law, built a sailboat, on which they sailed up the Wolf river, as far as Fremont. Here he bought 160 acres of government land, and after cutting timber on the same, he sold eighty acres, and for five years they resided in a log cabin. Then Mr. Dakins bought forty acres, upon which stood a comfortable dwelling.

      Amos Dakins [note: I assume Amos, Jr] enlisted at Fremont March 23, 1864, in Co. B, Thirty-seventh Wis. V. I, which was sent to Virginia, and participated in the battle of Petersburg. Mr. Dakins was taken sick in Virginia, and came home on a two months furlough. Rejoining his regiment, he remained till the close of the war; meanwhile the mother sold the Fremont property, and purchased eighty acres of partially improved land in Lind township. Here they lived until 1873, when they came to Buena Vista township, Portage county.

      Mr. Dakins bought forty acres of wild land, and built the home in which his son, Albert H. now lives. In 1890 he removed to McDill, where he died May 16 1892, aged eighty years and one day. His wife now resides with her son, Albert H.
