York County

Death: 1891
Lakeville
Dakota County

In 1850 he bought what was known as Cow Island, but later known as Bean Island on Lake Winnepesaukee (New Hampshire), and moved his family there. In 1855 he sold the dairy farm on the Island and moved west. They traveled by train, not wishing to suffer the hardships of his cousin who went in the Bean Wagon Train of that year. The train stopped at Galena, Illinois, and from there they traveled by side-wheeler to the Mississippi River, and up that to Hastings, Minnesota. The last part of their journey to Lakeville,in Eureka Township was made by covered wagon and a couple yoke of oxen. At Lakeville he purchased 1,000 acres of land around Bean Lake.
