This article was from 1912, george was my great grandpa, his grandpa started fishing on st. martins island in the early part of the 1800's and they moved to the mainland around the 1850's moving atleast 3 houses across the ice with them, some still stand in fairport to this day.

A remarkable article. Thank you for adding to the history of the rugged early settlers at Fairport, Mi.
