Also see . . .  Cadott, Wisconsin. In the late 1700s or early 1800s Jean Baptiste Cadotte, son of French Canadian fur trader Michel Cadotte of the Madeline Island area, established a trading post on the Yellow River near modern Cadott. In 1865 the village at the current site was founded by Robert Marriner, who built a dam and sawmill on the river and platted the town. Marriner named it "Cadotte Falls" after the earlier trading post. (Submitted on July 20, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
