Notes for George Laird (Spouse 1)
He served as the first Territorial Governor of Idaho, later as the first Governor of Idaho and was also U.S. Senator for the state (Zoe says the first senator, but that would conflict with being the first Governor). There is a town near Salmon City named after him.101
