the nearest grist mill was seventy miles away. A school was established three
years after their arrival, but an outbreak in 1861 of Sioux Indian attacks
forced the family to remove to Sauk Centre, Stearns County, and then to St.
Cloud, Minnesota. In 1867, Benjamin Pease sold his farm, and set out for
Washington with other pioneers, but decided to settle in Parke's Prairie,
Minnesota after an insurrection in the party. They removed in 1884 to

attending the district schools. The next six years of his life was spent
taking care of his father's cattle on the range, and in 1897, he bought from
his father, the farm. He put 35 acres of the farm under irrigation, five
acres as an orchard, one acre to strawberries, and the remainder to other
crops. He also grew fruit, and paid special attention to his dairy stock, a

Crow; b. 1839. She was the daughter of John Wallace, a noted Crow warrior.
David grew up in Steuben County, NY, and at age 18 headed west to Chicago,
Illinois. From there, he traveled down the old canal to Joliet, took the
train to Rock Island, and joined a party of pioneers at the Mississippi River
heading to Wisconsin. In that state, David worked in the forests as a
surveyor. He fixed the boundary line between Minnesota and Iowa, and worked
with the Sioux Indians in the lumber business. His next endeavor was
merchandising on the Missouri River, as a member of the "Little
Opposition" Firm, doing business along the river from Fort Benton to Fort
Sully. The firm joined the Northwest Fur Company, and traded with the
Indians. After the transfer of the company to Peck & Durfee, Major Pease as
he was known, left the business to join a company that supplied horses from
Utah and Colorado to the government. In 1860, Pease traveled back to
Pennsylvania to cast his vote for Abraham Lincoln in the presidential
election. In 1870, he was appointed as the first civil agent for the Crow
Indians, with his agency set up at the mouth of the Mission Creek, on the
south side of the Yellowstone River. In the spring of 1875, Major Pease, Paul
McCormick, and Z. H. Daniels made plans to form a colony and did so,
establishing it with about 50 on Pease's Bottom, on the Yellowstone.
McCormick and Daniels took care of the colony, while Pease went back East to
purchase supplies, a trip that lasted throughout the winter of 1875-76. While
he was gone, the attack on Custer had occurred along with an attack on the
newly formed Fort Pease. The colonists abandoned the fort. When Pease
returned, he sold the supplies to other posts, and took up mining in Park
County, before being appointed as agent of the Crow Indians at Fort Parker.
Some of the Crow Indians wanted to ally themselves with the Sioux, who were
always at war with the white man during this time. Blackfoot, chief of the
Crows, his wife, a daughter of Sioux Chief Crazy Horse, persuaded the Crow
to stay with the whites, preventing future conflicts, and establishing a
peaceful coexistence. Major Pease was instrumental in this effort, and he was
made an honorary member of the Crow Tribe, May 1920. He was made a Mason by
special dispensation at Knoxville, PA in 1868, and affiliated with the
Livingston Lodge No. 32, with the Scottish Rite Bodies and Algeria Temple of
the Mystic Shrine at Helena, Montana. Children of Major David Fellows and
