Mertz, Peter

Was born in Auglaise county Ohio, in the year 1851. When he was young, the family removed to Hancock county, where Peter was reared on a farm. In 1875, he came to Mille Lacs Lake, Crow Wing county, and kept a trading post there for two years, coming thence to Brainerd {1877], where he now carries on the business of a livery stable. He has been Sheriff of Crow Wing county since January, 1880. (History of the Upper Mississippi Valley, Winchell, Neill, Williams and Bryant, Minnesota Historical Company, Minneapolis: 1881; p. 650)

15 February 1930, Peter Mertz, an early day's sheriff of Crow Wing County, and widely known here, went west to become the police chief of Spokane, Wash. Now retired, and being interviewed by the Spokane paper, he gave a lengthy account of his early Brainerd days. (Brainerd Dispatch, Monday, 15 February 2010)
