D. Gray's story

  • August 13, 2012 - 2:31 PM

My great-grandparents settled in Maine Prairie between present-day Kimball and St. Cloud.

They build a stockade for defense and burned their standing crops in August-September 1862, though they were never attacked.

They are buried in the Maine Prairie cemetery on the west side of state highway 15. We must teach this history to our children so they may know of the great crime, and be able to avoid the hatred and violence, that underlies our modern prosperity.
