My family was among the very early settlers of Rush City, my great great grandfather chopped the wood that built the Cartier / Krueger family home on the French Road north of Rush City, that is still a family home today.
Starting with every person listed in the 1880 US Federal Census for Rush City, this tree highlights the lives of the early settlers and traces each family line to the last living individual. We will find out who was here first, who left and who stayed.
We are continually expanding our site to include settlers listed on the 1860 census from Chisago County. Almost 55,000 profiles to-date.
We will include historical stories of Rush City's past as told by residents past and present.
