Have been wondering/researching how the Mailloux family emigrated to Green Bay, Manitowoc, De Pere area in Wisconsin from Aylmer, Quebec. This happened in 1866. There were no trains to take, cars/trucks to drive, only ways were by wagon (too far with 7 kids) or boat. If by boat I have to solve the following;

How much did it cost for the Mailloux family of 9 on a boat? Were there any passenger boats at that time? How did they know about and get to a port that was going to Wisconsin? Did they know there was work in Wisconsin? Could they work their way on the boat? How long of a trip, by boat down the St. Lawrence Seaway, through Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Detroit River, Lake Huron and onto Lake Michigan, was it?
