Thanks to Jon Peterson for sending the following:

"Oliver Faribault...Here's some things that I know about him:
He was born in 1815, most likely in Prairie du Chien. He died in October 1850 (I've got the exact date somewhere)  He is buried in Faribault, in the same plot as his brother Alexander.  His wife Harriet is buried in Shakopee, (I think in either the cemetary on a hill just south of Canterbury Downs, or in the small one near the high school.  Memory fails me right now.)
If you've ever read "Old Rail Fence Corners" there's a few pages there written by his daughter Lucy. I've got copies of his purchases from H.H. Sibley's post in Mendota."
