Benjamin Golilo contributes to the
Moline Republican-Journal some in
terestiuir bits of local history that
are good reading'. A day or two ao
he saw some old timbers that re
called memories of former davs and
he writes, in part, as follows:
When Col. Davenport came on the
rovernmeut island with a company
of soldiers, they built Fort Armstrong
in the year 1817. The fort was built
of loj;s hewn on two sides. The out
side walls of the fort formed one side
of the dwelling houses, joining them
to the fort, the walls running north
far enough to admit live houses, then
the wall running west for four houses
more, and imp gate. At the north
east corner thev built a block house
about eight feet high, all of
logs. 1 his they used for a guard
house. They then turned the
logs crosswise on the corner, forming
the port holes ir the cannon. Holes
were also made through the sides of
each dwelling for the same purpose.
Soon after the completion this fort
Mr. Davenport was discharged from
the service. Then with his wife and
her daughter he built their house, and
settling near where he was afterward
murdered, went into business niakinir
indies and soap for the garrison
people. Soon alter this ne began
trailing with the Indians. When the
American Fur company came to know
that he was trading with the Indians
they paid him a li'.oe salary to stop
his trading with them. Find
ing this did not pay, the com
pany took him in as a part-
uer. I lie trade increased rapidly.
enoi"ii "Moils beinjr sold to the
Indians every year to amount to !?!.-
00,11 a vear. inu will ask how did
the Indians -ct this much monev?
The government paid it to them as
revenue tor their lands, ami thev
paid it t- Davenport. The Indians
eauirht a large amount of fur in
those davs and this monev was con
veyed to Davenport from the govern
ment in boxes containing $l,ooi
each in silver bv steamboats, there
being but two running up this far.
The names of the boats were the
Winnebago and Warrior. They
would dump this money olT at the
warl's where it would then lie until
they made their trip up to (ialena
anil hack, generally two days. It
was never disturbed. This money
came once too oiten. lor it was me
cause of the poor old man's death.
He was always fearful of this, as I
have often heard him say.
In the year l.".r Fori Armstrong
was evacuated. The officer in com
mand sold at public auction the logs
of which the fort was built. Col.
Davenport being the highest bidder
consecjuentl y got the logs for the
sum of $7."). 1 asked him what he
would do with them and he replied:
I am going to build a barn of
them." which he did. The barn is
still standing and a great manv
logs are comparatively sound,
examined them one day this
Those logs have been cut 70
last summer. These are facts.
