On This Date in Minnesota history: September 1

September 1, 1910 – Mrs. Hans Dalager is the first person in Pope County to pay an inheritance tax. The tax amounted to $60.74.

Hans Dalager, a farmer, died last spring. When his will was probated, it was found that he had left farms and other property worth $66,069, which he had accumulated in Pope County. When he settled in the county about 40 years ago, he was practically penniless.
