George Bancroft, History of the United States from the Discovery of the American Continent, Vol. 4, 15th edition., Chapter
Moving from one State to another with house and family. --A strange spectacle was witnessed on the Illinois river a few days ago. In low of the Resolute, going North, was a barge on which reposed a two-story frame house. This house is the property of a man who lives in St. Louis. Becoming alarmed, at the late commotion he had his house moved, as stated, and taken to another State. His family went along with him. While going up the river the man's dog sat in the door, the cat reclined lazily at a window, and the good wife carried on the household work as usual.
