HISTORIES before 1923

"History of Freeborn County : including Explorers and pioneers of Minnesota, and Outline history of the state of Minnesota" by Edward D. Neill; pub. Minneapolis: Minnesota Historical Co., 1882, 555 pgs. (LH12885, HeritageQuest images 5/2007; FHL book 977.6 A1 no.101 and film 1,000,256 item 4)
      Pg.465: Hartland Township. In the fall of 1858, a pair from Wisconsin, in the personnel of John P. Duncan and John P. Huggins, drifted in and secured homes. Duncan dropped anchor in section twenty, and remained a citizen of the town until within two years, when matters became too torrid for him and he left between two days, as the saying goes.
