On This Date in Minnesota History: June 1

June 1, 1854 – Isaac Staples begins to construct his first mill on the south end of Main Street in Stillwater. He organizes the Hersey, Staples, and Company with partners S. F. Hersey, Dudley C. Hall, George A. Whitney, and John Brooks Fenno. Once the mill is completed, it contains one muley saw, three sash saws, one live gang saw, and one small circular saw.”

If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MNHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
