The Benedict and Robie Families were very prominent in the early history of Idaho County.  Deb Starr has sent me numerous items that I have added to this county site.  I will try to add more of her family information here as time permits. 

I have put some of these files in pdf format.  Acrobat Adobe reader is required to view them.
