I have ancestors that settled in Blue Earth County, Garden City, in 1854 ... Samuel Titus Mills and his wife Permelia operated a hotel there for a number of years on the bank of a lake, which was later named Mills Lake after them. Permelia was the first white woman in the area for some time ... their son, Lucius Mills, started a nursery business near Garden City, introducing the first everbearing strawberry to Minnesota. The book by Lucius D. Mills is in the collection of the library at MHS.
