Forward and "Faug a Balac": An Irish Immigrant Family Dugout in Wisconsin (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jennifer Picard. Alexander Anthony. John Richards.

Much of the historical research on Irish immigrants, particularly women and children, focuses on those who moved to urban areas during the time of the Famine. Less has been written about Irish immigration prior to the famine, particularly to rural areas. The McHugh family immigrated to the United States in 1825, settling in Waupaca County, Wisconsin circa 1849. The McHugh site (47WP0294) was occupied by this family for over a century. Following her husband’s death in 1856, Mary McHugh was left...


The House of the Good Shepherd: A Late Nineteenth Century Orphanage on the Banks of the Hudson River (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jenifer C. Elam. RPA.

In 1866, Reverend Ebenezer Gay became the guardian of six orphaned children. The home he would make for these children and many others, known as the House of the Good Shepherd in Tomkins Cove, New York, was a self-sufficient, working farm that taught the children hard work and responsibility and also acted as the hub of Reverend Gay’s mission work in the community. While some of the site’s architectural history is still extant, much of its archaeology is obscured by the structural debris left on...


Nineteenth Century Domestic and Industrial Landscapes within Military Installations on the Panhandle of Florida (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Dawn M Bradley. Susan Andrews. Marc Wampler.

The panhandle of Florida in the nineteenth century was a time of flux and hosted an array of settlement types across the landscape - from small, single family homesteads to larger established communities all exhibiting physical evidence of domestic and industrial land use over time. As the primary context for human behavior, the landscape shaped by early settlers of Florida can also reveal the economic class and social standing of those that lived there, with evidence of such found in structural...

Portrait of a Port: Industry and Ideology in El Salvador (1805-1900) (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lauren Alston Bridges. Roberto Gallardo.

The impact of the Industrial Revolution affected El Salvador far more slowly in the pre-independence period due to the Spanish trade monopoly. Yet Atlantic World demand for commodities such as balsam, cacao, coffee, indigo, and sugar steadily increased through the early Republican period of independence, encouraging entrepreneurs to invest in the technologies of the nineteenth century. Technologies like the steamship and railroad inextricably connected El Salvador to global markets, resulting in...


Reconstructing Daily Life in Little Flat Creek Valley (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Emma L Verstraete.

The early nineteenth century was tumultuous for Barry County in southwest Missouri. Originally made up of unclaimed acreage and the land grants for the Osage and Delaware Native American tribes, the area was redefined as a county when Missouri reached statehood in 1821 and then later divided into four smaller counties. Through all of these boundary changes the Little Flat Creek Valley was occupied nearly continuously, first by native tribes and later by Phillip Marbut and his family....
