William A. Tweeddale, Biographical Sketch, about 1935

Source: "The Monument Index" General Biographic History of NE Wisconsin Centering in and Around the City of Algoma.

One of the three men who laid the foundation of the City of Algoma was Edward Tweeddale. He was born in England, May 8, 1819, and when an infant, migrated with his parents to St. John, N.B. [New Brunswick]. At 15 he went to sea and continued sailing until 1850 when he located at Manitowoc. Here he married Mary A. Clater, a Virginian, and with her and two other families, on May 27, 1851, located at the mouth of the Ahnapee river - being the first white settlers - and after building log cabins for homes, engaged in fishing.

The first baby born to the Tweeddale family September 10, 1851, was also the first white native of Algoma - William A. Tweeddale. In childhood he played with Indian children, grew up with the community, and engaged in sailing and fishing.

October 28, 1879, William (Billy) Tweeddale was married to Mary Madden of the town of Pierce, born January 31, 1852. They traveled by oxcart to Whitefish Bay, Door County, where they moved to Sturgeon Bay, where for many years Mr. Tweeddale was tender on the toll bridges.

William A. Tweeddale died December 15, 1930. Mrs. Tweeddale still lives in Sturgeon Bay, where she is still in fair health and mentally alert at the age of 83.
