  • Notes 
    • Calvin Conner was a carpenter and bridge builder, who later moved to Galveston, IN. He built most of the bridges on the Richmond and Logansport Railroad. [The railroad connecting toward Chicago was completed after 1853. So it could be that Calvin Conner "worked" his way to Logansport as the railroad was build and settled there after the railroad was completed. - T. King]
