    • Notes:

      Samuel Patterson Starrett emigrated to this country from New Brunswick, Canada, in 1853 and settled in Monticello, Minnesota in 1858, living with his parents, Harvey and Margaret Starrett.

      In July, 1861, he inlisted as a corporal with in Marquette County, Michigan, with the First Infantry Regiment of Michigan, Company I. While in battle, he was shot and blinded. He was taken prisoner and was detained at Libby Prison in Virginia. He was exchanged, and, on 14 Aug, 1862, after just 1 year and 17 days of service, at David's Island in New York Harbor, was given a disability discharge. The Special Schedule for Surviving Soldiers, Sailors and Marines states Samuel was "wounded in the face causing loss of both eyes."

      He returned to Minnesota and married Jane Lydia Jordan, descendant of Rev Robert Jordan, an early settler of New Hampshire, and Reverend Samuel Veazie, infamous minister of Duxbury and Hull, Massachusetts.

      Samuel and Jane had three daughters, who resided with them for most of their lives. Though blind, he served as Postmaster in Anoka for some five years. He and Jane remained in Anoka until their deaths.

Fannie was a music teacher from before 1895 to some time before 1910, when she is listed as housekeeper, perhaps for her aging parents.
