I am trying to locate the family of John DAVIDSON who moved to Osakis and married Florence ROSEMEIER. All the family knows is that he came from Breckenridge and Campbell. He was born 3-8-1878 and died 8-11-1947.


Jack W. Schlotte Tue Jan 15 02:11:45 2002
I am looking for information on my father, Harvey Frederick SCHLOTTE, born in Breckenridge in 1918. At some point he changed his name from Roger Pershing SCHLOTTE, his birth name in 1918. His brother, Robert Werner SCHLOTTE, I have always assumed was born in Breckenridge also in 1914. I understand that their parents emmigrated from Northern Germany or Prussia about 1910 to 1913. My father and my uncle Robert both served with great distinction in B-17 bombers in WWII. The surname can be looked up in the index of some of the books on B-17's or the story can be found by looking up the name WHELESS.
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jack

I am owner of a signature quilt with 700 names, created in 1929 in Tenney, Minnesota. Names were embroidered on the quilt for the price of 10 cents, to be used to repair the furnace in the town hall. My grandmother, Audrey Polifka LARSON, her mother, Helen Ready POLIFKA, are on the quilt, as well as many other residents of Tenney and surrounding area. If any of you know anything about this quilt or know of people who lived in the Tenney area in 1929, please contact me. I have names catalogued and would like to learn more about them. Thank you. - Heidi Leaf Haagenson
