They spent the night in a grove of trees. The next morning, when the men saw the area by daylight, they were very impressed. Waylander, driv- ing a stake into the ground, said, "Here is where I am going to have my home." Lund then began to look around and walked a short distance south and came to a flat clearing. Lund decided, "Here I am going to cut trees and make my cabin." They had promised Win- quist they would also find a place for him close to theirs, so they walked around a small lake (later to become known as Lund Lake) and found another place which impressed them, which they staked for Winquist. All three of these places are in section 4 of Action Township. They are now owned [in 1975] by Alois Schmalz (the Lund farm), Donald Slinden (the Waylander farm) and Erwin Nass (the Winquist farm). The Civil War was in progress and the young settlers were being drafted into the National Guard. On Sunday, Aug. 17, 1862, these young men who were waiting to be called to the Guard had a meet- Text from The Meeker REA Pioneer, October 1975; reprinted in the Tri-County News Oct. 2, 2003. The following are incidents relating to those who were resi- dents of Meeker County during the late 1850s and the early 1860s, as told by their descendants, who have recalled various incidents and stories told by their relatives who took refuge in the (Forest City) Stockade at the time of the Sioux Indian Uprising in Meeker County. These are but a few of the sto- ries that might be told about the residents of that time. In 1856, three families came by oxen to settle in the north part of Acton township. The Peter J. Lund, Nels Waylander Sr., and John Win- quist families came to America from Sweden. They lived in Illi- nois for a few years before coming to Meeker County (in Minnesota). The previous year, 1855, Lund and Waylander left Illinois on foot and traveled north until they came to St. Anthony, Minnesota, (now Minneapolis) in search of land. They then decided to go west from Minneapolis and seek their new home. As they traveled, they ing in one of the homes in Swede did not see a white man until they Grove Township. It was when they came to Dassel. When they came were returning to their homes that to Lake Ripley, they met the land they met a group of Indians (it surveyor. This was as far as the is thought they were about 12 in surveying crews had come at that number). The white men noticed time. that the Indians were excited, and The surveyor told them that that all were carrying guns.

The farms are now owned [in 1975] by Mrs. George Paulson and Boyd Paulson. A mon- ument stands on the George Paul- son farm as a memorial to those five white people who were mas- sacred by the Indians that tragic Sunday, Aug. 17, 1862.

Elevated dew points and light winds also all contributed to the fog problems. As a result, dense fog advisories were posted for parts of Minnesota. A weak system pushed across Northwestern Minnesota Monday night and brought some widely scattered showers and thunder- storms to that part of the state. Overnight lows were warm With lows in the mid to upper 50s and lower 60s for much of the area. Our next real threat of thun- derstorms returns by Tuesday night into Wednesday. Parts of far Southern Minnesota could see some severe weather. A few of these could move into parts of Central Minnesota as well, but it looks like the main concern will be well off to our south. Fog will continue to be an issue for much of the week early in the morning and late at night as dew points and light winds will stay over weekend with us. At this stage, it looks like Sun- day will be the better day of the weekend with highs both days in the low- to mid-70s. We could see some scattered showers on Satur- day, but it doesri't look like a wash- out. Have a great upcoming week- end! Weather history: On this date in 1899 "A killer F5 .tornado ripped through New Richmond, Wis." Newspapers reported that 117 people were killed and 200 were injured by the tornado and 300 buildings were destroyed as well.
