Type Summary
Text In 1801, Benjamin Babcock came, and was the original settler of what has since been known as the Brock farm. In the spring of 1832, while attending to his cattle, he was injured in the head by one of them, and died from the effects. He had been a Revolutionary soldier, and was eighty-two years old. During this year the township of Rush was erected. It included all the present township of Forest Lake, until the erection of Bridgewater.
