Conger Historical Events

1859
"Ira A. Conger was a young bachelor of 24 when he first arrived upon the scene in the new state of Minnesota. His place of birth was Canton in Lawrence County, New York. He came to Stillwater in the fall of 1859 and the following winter moved to what is now Kanabec County and started an Indian trading post at the mouth of Spring Brook, about two miles south of Mora, with his cousin, Alvah J. Conger, also a bachelor and about 30 years of age...Sometime after coming to Isanti County, Ira Conger built a log cabin beside A.B. Odell's stopping place and operated a general store. Ira was appointed postmaster on December 10, 1866, and his store was the center of commercial activity for Cambridge and the lumbermen who passed by on their way to and from the pineries. The young bachelor met the first schoolteacher, Leora Bunker, and they were married on Dec. 3, 1863. The rest of the Bunker family moved to Isanti County on June 6, 1865, after visiting Leora in the pioneer settlement and liking the location. Previously they had lived in Maine and in Hennepin County, Minnesota. Their farm was the southeast quarter of section 29, right next to their son-in- law's store. Kendall Bunker, the father, who died not too long after the family moved to Cambridge, is buried on the farm site. Part of the cemetery of the Cambridge Lutheran Church was donated to the church by the Bunkers..." Amy Rachel Conger was born in Isanti County March 12, 1870. She was my great-grandmother."
