TUB FIRST AN'I) OLDEST SI '.DAY SCHOOL IN
On the 25th of July, i^!7, thirty-seven
years ago, Miss Harriet E. Bishop opened a
Sunday school in a lou, house, corner of
Third and St. Peter Btreets, udh .-.even
scholars. They were from parents of all
nationalities, and great Bkill was required by
the then young and Inexperienced but
perserving teacher, to make
them comprehend her meaning;
but she succeeded admirably, and finally had
twenty-five children about her. The school
was continued several years and Increased
in numbers, and at last became connected
with the First Baptist church of this city.
Miss Bishop died In 1883, ami a biographical
sketch of her life appeared in Article Five.
SIMEON P. lolsoM.
Mr. Folsom was born In lower Canada in
Ist'.i, and is consequently 65 years old,
which will greatly surprise most of his inti
mate friends, who presumed him to be a man
not much more than 50 years, lie studied
and practiced hnr, and then took op tb ■ pro
fessiOn of civil engineering. He left his
home in 1839, and came to St. Paul in I s IT.
or 37 years ago. lb- early enlisted in the,
Mexican war, as did Edmund Rice and M.
N. Kellogg, and also served in the Union
army for a term of three years during the
war of the rebellion. He was also on the
.staff of Major-General Bodfish, in 1839,
ranking as major, and In l s."ii-:i was clerk in
the legislature. He was also the :
surveyor of St. Paul, in Is:,!, and has I < n
a continuous resident of St. Paul, or near to
It, and Identified with her Interests, for ;si'
A CANOE RIDE OV 300 MII.ES.
In IM2 Mr. Folsom, having been
appointed by the United States gov
ernment to take t!ie cei,-us in this then
almost unknown region, and having per
formed his duties, purchased a birch bark
canoe of the Indian-, and alone, started on a
voyage, from Menominee, down the Chippe
wa river to the Mississippi, and from tie nee
to Prairie duChien, a distance of 300mOes. He
mad.' a Bail out of one of bis undergarments,
and thus floated on the broad bosom of the
great river, sometimes stopping with fur
traders, sometimes with Indian-, and ime
times alone. Then there were no farm,-, uo
Villages, no towns, no cities, and very few
whites. He came west when nineteen years
old, and has lived to see wonderful changes.
He speaks of visitinlt the old government
mill, near where Minneapolis now stands,
and between the mill and Fort Snelling, on
a wide stretch of prairie land, stood a loin
tree, and beneath this lone tree the sentini I
soldier would sit at noon day to shield him
self from the hot rays of the sun. When
that lone tree then stood, Is now a bustling
Mr. Folsom is a man of a great deal of in
telllgence and has led an active, busy life,
We remember him in the palmy days of reii
estate, when he dealt in broad acres an
drove about the city as a nabob; then we re
member him again, not so rich; in pooi
health, ready and expecting to die any mm
ute, and yet he has outlived a large numbei
of his old friends, and is as active as a kit
ten. Very few- men know more about rea
estate in and about St. Paul, than Folsom
He has surveyed it; he has owned it; he hat
sold it. He has been on the top-most rounc
of the ladder, and at the bottom, and jus
now he is in the middle of the ladder of life
and is as tenacious as an old hickory tree
He la social, kind hearted, generous; has an
excellent memory, and delights to revel in
the incidents of the past. Withal, he has :
vein of humor in his composition, whicl
makes him popular as a companion and likec
as a man. Mr. Folsom is in the best ol
health, and looks younger than he did twenty
