Can anyone tell me the local name of the river that
runs through Gile WI, where Gile Falls is located. According to the maps the 'official' name is the West Branch of the Montreal River, but there was a sign on
the bridge in town with a very long and interesting
native name. Thanks in advance.

Stephen: Don't see where anyone has responded to your query about the native name of the river through Gile. I checked my plat book maps and other maps to no avail but then looked at a composite map I have showing the original survey plats made in the mid-1800s. They show a Ke-chi-se-be-we-shee River in that area. I think that may be the one in question. I go through that area every fall so will double-check next October.
