I am researching my "American family". Siri Anna (born Ottersdatter)and Severt Olson settled at Bear Creek (near Oakes?) after marriage in 1879. Their son Ola Olson ran a farm in Northland township with his wife Mary around 1900. I would like to find Siri Annas burial place (via obituary?) since she must have died around 1910 in Ransom.

Would like to verify in the 1900 census of Casey Township Ransom County 129-02a.gif line 14, That the name is SHELDY Nils.(hard to read) He is a section hand for John Kenni. The birth month and year and place also birth place of parents match for the Nils SHELDY Iam researching. I checked the 1910 census did not find Nils he may have returned to Minnesota-Iowa by then. I know that Nils came to Ransom County maybe lived in Lisbon area, time frame unkown. May have came as early as 1890 he would have been 18 years old. Nils born July 20 1872 Fillmore Co Minnesota died Jan.16 1929 Mitchell Co Iowa. Any help in is appreciated.

I live in Alabama and am trying to locate the terra cotta relief entitled "Family Group" that was installed in the Lisbon ND post office in 1944 as part of Pres Roosevelt's New Deal Art Program. I've contacted the Lisbon post office and library and no one can help me. I have a book published in 1991 that says the relief was moved to "St Augustera College"--there is no college by that name but is an Augustana College in Sioux Falls but no on there knows anything about the relief either. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
