Looking for someone that can look
at the original source materials ...book that it is from 1912 that indexes biographies of
notable Minnesotans - this is just an index, but it mentions your Samuel
Olmstead. It says:
"Olmstead, S. Baldwin, b. in Otsego county, NY in 1810; d. in Burnett
county, Texas, Jan. 27, 1878. He came to the Northwest in early manhood,
and resided in Iowa and Minnesota; was engaged with government contracts
about Fort Ripley for a time; was a farmer at Belle Prairie; was president
of the territorial council, 1854; removed to Texas at the close of the Civil
War, and settled on the farm where he died."
I'm Looking for who the parents of Samuel Baldwin Olmstead .
