Winona County, MN Biographies

EDWARD B. DREW was born in Steuben county, New York; received a common school education and remained on a farm until the age of twenty two years, when he removed and settled on the Wabash, in the State of Indiana. After remaining there two and a-half years, enduring all the horrors of the ägue, Mr. Drew set out in search of a more healthy location, and arrived at Minnesota City in the spring of 1852, and from thence removed to the farm upon which he now resides, about two miles west of Minnesota City. Mr. Drew was married to Miss Sarah A. Meddie, who died in Rolling Stone township in 1868. Mr. Drew has been a very prominent man in the township, having held many county offices and represented the county twice in the legislature. He is a democrat in politics, but has always received the suffrages alike of all political parties, and, if he would oniy accept, could be elected to any public office in the gift of the citizens of the county. Mr. Drew owns about 700 acres of land, and can be counted as one of the successful farmers of Winona county.
