Titus, William A., 1868-1951 "Historic spots in Wisconsin"

Historic Spots in Wisconsin: The Lost Village of the Mascouten: This article reviews the textual evidence about a late-17th-century village occupied by the Mascouten or Mascoutin Indians. The town was located somewhere between Omro and Portage on the upper reaches of the Fox River in Winnebago, Green Lake, or Columbia counties. The author quotes liberally from the Jesuit Relations, including descriptions by Jacques Marquette (1637-1635), Claude Allouez (1622-1689), and their contemporaries. Scholars still have not located the site beyond doubt, though archaeological remains found about two miles southwest of Berlin, in Green Lake County, are suggestive. (6 pages)
