Explanation of "Tannerville"
http://www.waynecook.com/ztay.html

STURGEON BAY

"Thompson's sawmill at Sturgeon Bay, erected in 1848 or a little before, is supposed to be the first in this township, and was situated, as Gibbard's map of 1853 shows, fully a mile up the Sturgeon River. The road had been opened to Sturgeon Bay from Coldwater in 1843-4, and the terminus on the Bay became a busy port, marked "Tay Port" on the map above mentioned, with steamers and other vessels making regular calls. *W.H. TANNER* acquired or built a mill here in 1873, and the place assumed the name of Tannerville."
