The Binnard family was prominent throughout the American west during the late-nineteenth century, having settled throughout Washington, Montana, and Idaho. James Binnard and his brothers Abraham, Bennet, and Berka (Birka?) emigrated from Poland to America in 1861. James and Bennet settled in Rochester, New York, where Bennet worked as a hoop skirt and corset manufacturer. James Binnard's son Joseph Binnard moved west to Butte, Montana. Annie Binnard, Bennet' s eldest daughter, was born in Buffalo, NY, and later moved to Lewiston, Idaho, where she married Nathan Fischer in 1883. Bennet's son Daniel, also born in Buffalo, moved to Elk City, Idaho, in 1877. Information regarding the Binnard family was donated to the Beck Archives by Mrs. Charles H. Starr in 1978.
