History Sketches
Minnesota Dames are descended from colonial ancestors, but many Minnesota Dames also have ancestors who were prominent in more recent history, right here in the state of Minnesota. We are working on compiling sketches of these Minnesota ancestors. In this first group of sketches are brief accounts of our founder, Eliza Thompson Edgerton Newport; the Cargill and MacMillan families of Cargill Company; and Minneapolis builder, businessman, and state senator Robert Bruce Langdon. Watch this space for new sketches, as they are completed!
