Benton County Marriages


Information on Benton County:

When Minnesota's original nine counties were established in 1849 only three, Benton, Washington, and Ramsey, officially opened to settlers.  They lay in a triangle of land between the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers that reached north beyond Lake Mille Lacs, land ceded by the Dakota and Ojibwe Indians twelve years earlier.  Fur trading and lumbering first drew settlers to Benton County, largely from Eastern states and Canada.  The first census of the county in 1850 counted 418.
