Reginald R. Butchino (March 14, 1998)
Hello, my name is Reginald Butchino and I am doing research on my family history and find that Pierre Bottineau who founded your county is possibly a relative of mine. In an article that I have received, it said that Pierre met his third wife in Champlain, New York and all of my family came from Canada and our name was originally Bottineau and was changed in the early 1900s to Butchino. Any information that you can send me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you: Reginald R. Butchino, 1162 Goode Road, Ballston Spa, NY 12020; tele (518)885-8486

I am connected to Bottineau County through my wife's family. Henrik and Ingeborg Haugan who farmed near Souris at the turn of the century. The reason for writing is that I have uncovered, in a forgotten box, a complete Bottineau High School Courier, Vol #1, No #1, dated June 3, 1920. I also have a class photo for that year, and one of the basketball team. My wife's mother was BERGLIOT CHARLOTTE (HAUGAN) BUER. I have her blue velvet paper graduation book for 1920 which includes her signed diploma and the names of all of her classmates. I also have many photos of the HAUGANS, including their tar paper shanty and their sod house. Plus some photos of the BRANDVOLDS and BURNS families. Even a photo of downtown Bottineau in 1920 and the band from Kramer in a 4th of July parade. I would be delighted to scan and mail these items to anyone that is interested. Walt Niblick
