44. John Sargent Pillsbury (1828-1901)
located on the common at the junction
of NH114 and Meetinghouse Hill Road
in South Sutton, NH

Greetings from the ancestral home of Poppin' Fresh! "Born in a house bordering this common, he migrated to Minneapolis in 1855. There, he, his brother George, and his nephew Charles, established the famous Pillsbury flour milling business. Three times elected governor of Minnesota and noted benefactor of its State University, his career in industry and public service reflects great credit on his native state."
