My North Dakota Diary
Cavalier County
'Cavalier County was named in honor of the memory of Charles Cavalier, who was believed to have been the first white settler to take up a permanent residence in North Dakota. He settled in Pembina county in 1851, and lived in the Red River Valley for about fifty years. The county is generally a rolling prairie, well watered and drained by creeks, coulees and ravines. Langdon is the county seat.' Source: North Dakota Blue Book -- 1942
