Minneapolis flour milling magnate, Cadwallader C. Washburn, was a member of a Maine family that sent four brothers to Congress, all from different states. Cadwallader served Wisconsin as congressman (1854-61, 1867-71) and governor (1872-73). His younger brother, William D. Washburn, also a Minneapolis mill owner, became a Minnesota congressman in 1879 and US senator in 1889.

George A. and John S. Pillsbury, brothers from New Hampshire, became frontier businessmen and millers in Minneapolis. John was governor of Minnesota (1876-82). George's son, Charles A. Pillsbury, built an empire in flour and the grain trade.
