I have a picture of a Lorena McFARLANE graduating class of between 1900 and
1905 University of Minneapolis. believe she taught in Minneapolis and according
to back of picture may be daughter of William McFarlane. because of there
being three of the same picture in our McFarlane group of pictures I feel
she must have been a close relative and he father may have come from Ontario.
Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I'm trying to find out what happened to my mother's two aunts who emigrated
1.Nilsine Cecilia aka Sine Nilsdtr Tysse (or could be Skard) emigrated to
Madison, Minnesota. She was born in Tysse, Samnanger, Hordaland, Norway in
1886. She left Norway on April 17, 1910 onboard the Canadian Pacific. She
married someone called Swanson (probably a Swede).
2. Anna Nilsdtr Tysse (or Skard) emigrated to Redwing, Minnesota on April
28, 1921 onboard Skand Amerika Linje III. She was born in Tysse, Samnanger,
Hordaland, Norway in 1895. She married someone called
Högberg/Hoegbergh...probably a Swede too. At least one of them should
have children from what my mother says. The family lost touch with them after
my grandfather (their brother) died in 1929. I would appreciate all help.

Ira DANGER Searching for information on Ira Danger who lived in Minnesota
sometime in the 1800's or early 1900's. I don't know where. Wife was named
Frances, but she was called "Bonnie" I think this was because her last name
was Beaudine (not sure of that spelling) He would have been a farmer, and
I know they had ten children. My father was born in 1917 in Hardin county
Iowa, so they moved some time before 1917. Any help that can be provided
would be greatly appreciated.

William John KNECHT, youngest son of John and Dorothea (Kurz) Knecht was
born October 6, 1866 in New Haven, Connecticut. Shortly after the death of
his mother William left New Haven about 1900. It was rumored that William
had moved out west, but it is not known where? Found in the Civil War pension
papers of John Knecht, father of William, is a letter from Merrill, Plymouth
County, Iowa. This letter, from a Mrs. Frank Kowalski to the Pension Office,
Washington, DC, requested the address of John Knecht who served in the Civil
War from New Haven. The accuracy of the data contained in this letter would
suggest that it was obtained from a source who had knowledge and was familiar
with this information. I believe the source of this information was William
Knecht? Frank Kowalski, this women's husband, worked as a carpenter as did
William Knecht. Most of the carpenters, back in these days, traveled hundreds
of miles in search of work building houses and barns. There is good reason
to believe that William passed through Merrill and then moved on to another
state? The reason Mrs. Kowalski wrote this letter may never be known, however,
I believe it had something to do with William Knecht? Need any information
on William Knecht!

I am searching for the burial place of Anna Joanne (OLSON ) SABOE born 20
July 1866 married Frederick SABOE possibly in Iowa or Illinois. She died
17 April 1902 in Minnesota, Her obituary was published in the Fergus
Falls Daily Journal on April 24, 1902, stating her cause of death and that
the funeral services were held from the Presbyterian church conducted by
Rev Meisel, pastor of the Norwegian Lutheran church of Fergus Falls. It also
states that "the remains were laid to rest in the church cemetery" and states
that she died from pneumonia and inflammation of the bowel. May have been
living in or near Dawson or Fergus Falls at the time. She was the mother
of five children. After her death, the children were sent to Iowa to be raised
by relatives. All I know of Frederick Saboe, but he died in Fort Dodge, Iowa
on 23 Nov. 1933 at the age of 72 years. Anna Joanne (Olson) Saboe was the
sister of my husband's paternal grandfather. Her grandchildren do not know
where she is buried and they would very much like to have that information.
I regret that I do not have more precise information as to where they were
living at the time of her death. Anything available will be appreciated.
E-mail me your address for reimbursement.

I am researching my father's LEE family. My father's name was Frank Oliver
Lee. He was born in St. James Minnesota on October 19, 1891 to Peter (Per)
Lee and Mary (Marit)Lee. He was baptized on July 10, 1892 according to the
records of the Long Lake Lutheran Congregation, and a copy of the certificate
was signed by a Pastor A. (?) Daniels and witnessed by:
1)Torkild(?) ans Lena Lien
3)Anna Horten(?) on January 19, 1957.
My father had requested the birth and baptismal certificate as he had come
to Weldon, Saskatchewan, Canada with his parents in 1902 when he was eleven
years old and before immigration records were kept between the U.S.A. and
Canada in the great plains region. My father had the following brother and
sisters: Severt, Anna Torina, Lena, Pauline, Inga, and Mabel (now all deceased).
I know that he had relatives in the St. James region as I have an old post
card from St. James, Mn postmarked 1904 from a " cousin Bertina". Any information
would be greatly appreciated as I am trying to trace my family back to Norway.
