River Portal (East Portal), Colorado

I'm Irish & I'm a Mason...and I have a story to tell.

Sit By The River - Share My Journey

These entries document the stories of the men, women and children who lived at River Portal, Montrose County, Colorado while working on the Gunnison Diversion Tunnel - a historic pioneering project that celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2009.

Please read from the first entry forwards as I tend to have my own writing style that's more like reading a book than an entry that can be read individually. Reading the posts separate from each other doesn't really convey the story properly. :)

Household # 9 - George T. Dougherty

Ah, Monday ... and back to the documenting of the families listed at River Portal on the 1910 census.  This one will likely become interesting as it is the most common surname listed there and all appear to come from one family - living in multiple households.  Connecting the dots for this family should be fun.
