CONTRIBUTED BY PATRICK FINNEGAN:|
The following files were contributed by local historian Patrick Finnegan.
He became interested in local history while reseaching his family tree and discovering the U.S. Census
of 1870 for the Montana Territory, which he later turned into his second book Taylor Made: Gallatin
County's First Census. Taylor Made and his first book, Passages, with co-author Jeri Malby,
are available at the Headwaters Heritage Museum gift shop. Patrick continues to research, write, and speak about the history of the headwaters area
and has been the Treasurer for the Three Forks Area Historical Society since 2003.
Feel free to download his articles for reading. All articles are copyrighted.
