Prairie du Sac - Brower born 1864

I am trying to figure out why in the world my GG Grandmother Maria Garrison Craft Brower was in Prairie du Sac giving birth to her 3rd child, William Lanier Brower on 21 Nov 1864. She was born in NY and Maria married William DeWolf Brower in 1861, had a son and daughter in NJ before William L. was born. She spent the rest of her life in Newark, NJ. Husband was in the war, but no where near Wisconsin so I can't imagine why she was in Wisconsin, very pregnant! Any ideas? The Craft and Brower families may have had some lumber interests according to lore, but I can't trace anything. I have no birth certificate. Any help or ideas would be appreciated!
