I am looking for information on Ferdinand BESCH, my gggrandfather. There is supposedly an affidavit stating that on 27 Aug 1917 he was living in Raleigh, Grant Co., ND. He died shortly thereafter. I don't know where he is buried, but I am hoping it is in Raleigh. I don't know how big Raleigh is or how many cemeteries there are. Is there someone who would be willing to do a lookup for me? Or tell me who I could contact for further information?

I would like to know what happened to the children of Henry and Mary THOMPSON, Martia, Willie, Arthur, Stella and Mabel and their families. My family is descended from Nels THOMPSON (brother of Henry) and Anne (sister of Mary). Henry (b. 1850's), Nels S NELSON (b. January 03, 1855) and 3 sisters (names unknown) were born in Numedahl, Norway. Their father was Stener Nielson VALLE (b. 1826 and d. in Norway) and mother was Sigri HALVORSDATTER (b. 1828 in Norway and d. in Norway). The 5 children emigrated to the US along with 3 of their father's siblings. It is believed they first settled in Wisconsin and were some of the earliest settlers in Decorah Iowa. Henry eventually bought a farm and lived in Carson (probably ND). Henry died at his farm when he was gored by an animal. His wife, Mary (b. Mar 25, 1859) was born in Lom Parish, Gubrandsdalen, Oppland, Norway to Tore & Barbro THOMPSON who emigrated to Wisconsin and later to Minnesota with their children Mary, Botolf and Anne. Mary died in Bismark hospital 4 years after Henry and left 5 children: Martia, Willie, Arthur, Stella and Mabel. It is believed that Arthur stayed on the home place and was not married.
