Looking for birth record for my father, Thomas A. PARKER, born February 1, 1906, in Rugby, ND. He is still alive and doing well (97, works, reads, travels) living in Worcester, Massachusetts. He would like to get a birth certificate. I believe the birth records for Rugby in the 1906 era were lost in a fire, and he has never been able to have his birth confirmed by official record. His Father was Thomas L. PARKER and his mother was Emma (ODELL) PARKER.

Can you possibly help with tis or offer a suggestion for further research. Thank you for any help or suggestions.

Family lore indicates that Lars Peter LARSON and Olang Kaspara OLSEN were married in Rugby, ND. The date would be sometime prior to Feb 1891 the year my grandfather was born.

Lars LARSON was born 12/10/1868 in Hallan (?) Sweden; Olang Kaspara OLSEN was born 01/29/1868 in Namos(?) Norway (Inderoy parish, Tronstadplass).
Is any information available? Thanks, Diane Pearson

There is an Agnes DORSHER buried at the old St Mathias(sp) Cemetary south of Orrin North Dakota, the dates on the Tombstone are for 1829 to 1894, our surname is very rare varient of the DORSCHER surname and is spelled without the "C". This cemetery is an Iron Cross Cemetary, however her tomb is marked by a Brick head Stone. Any Pierce County Historians that can clear up this mystery for us. Our family immigrated to North Dakota from Russia in 1901, so we are very intrigued.
Thanks a million for any help. Tom Dorsher Martinez, California.

Sir: It has come to my attention that there is a grave stone in Orrin with the name of Agnes DORSHER 1829-1894. I am wondering if you could provide me with any information concerning this individual either from records of land ownership, marriage, spouses name, death certificate, education, etc. This is a DORSHER name I am unfamiliar with and am curious as to whether or not she was a relative of ours. My Grandfather lived in Harvey for some time in his early years. His name was Peter B DORSHER or sometimes spelled DORSCHER. Thanks for any information you may provide me or at least are able to direct me in the right directions. Jerry Dorsher

There is an Agnes DORSHER buried in the Kondel Cemetery in Orrin North Dakota, she is listed as born 1828 and died 1892, Kondel is also refered to as St. Mathias Cemetery. I understand that Sacred Heart Church (Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church) in Balta and or St. Francis Xavier Church in Anamoose may have her records. My GG Grand Mother Agnes TORSCHER (DORSCHER) Married Nicolas KESSLER in the Anamoose area in about 1904, so this other Agnes DORSHER is a family mystery. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Tom Dorsher
