Requested move[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was Move Parsecboy (talk) 20:34, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

This page resided at Fort Dearborn since its creation on July 15, 2005. On January 4, 2009, it was moved to Fort Dearborn (Illinois) without discussion and the Fort Dearborn page was turned into a disambiguation page for this page and a non-existent Fort Dearborn (New Hampshire). Given that the other page does not exist and was not created at the time this move was made, it is clear that the Fort Dearborn in Chicago (which has more than twenty wikilinks to it) is of much greater notability. This page should reside at Fort Dearborn and, if the other entry is ever created, a hatlink should be added or [[Fort Dearborn {dismbiguation}]] should be created.

There was in fact a Fort Dearborn protecting Portsmouth, New Hampshire. But this one should be primary usage; we should move back, but create the wikilink and a stub. A link to the stub should be enough unless a third Ft. Dearborn turns up. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 17:22, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Concur with move back as primary page. With only two articles a dab is not necessary. Even hatnotes will solve the problem.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 20:01, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Support moving this article back to Fort Dearborn; the New Hampshire fort existed only 20 years,[1] never saw a battle, and today is far better known as Odiorne Point State Park (at present also a redlink). --Una Smith (talk) 04:40, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Support revert. Per Una. --Born2cycle (talk) 18:16, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

I checked all the incoming mainspace links to Fort Dearborn; none require disambiguation. --Una Smith (talk) 05:28, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Date of Death of Alexander Beaubien[edit]

The date of the death of Alexander Beaubien is incorrect. If one looks at the actual article announcing his death, it is dated March 25. The announcement was printed in the N.Y. Times issue of March 26. History1861 (talk) 18:17, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Corrected, which you could have done yourself.Shsilver (talk) 20:15, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Some of us newer members are afraid to edit articles on topics like dates of birth or death because we could be wrong and branded vandals. Maybe next time you don't have to be so rude to someone only trying to help. Kostantino888Z (talk) 21:37, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, Kostantino888Z. You are quite correct.History1861 (talk) 17:26, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
