In the 1900 US Census for Ramsey County Edward P.(? this is hard to read on the actual film but the Soundex card says P.) LARKIN age 42, his wife Catherine M. (oran) age 33 and children Florence 9, John 8, Marie 5 and Catherine 2 are listed as living at 342 8th Street, St. Paul, MN. His occupation is given as cook and hers as boarding house keeper. His place of birth is given as IL and hers as NJ and all of their parents are from Ireland. Other sources have given his place of birth as MA and hers as Ireland. This is the only place I have found the P. in his name as the oldest daughter gives his name as John Edward on her SS9 and the other two as Edward.

I am looking for information on this family. I have a marriage record in Cook County IL for Edward LARKIN and Katie MORAN of St. Paul, MN on 31 October 1889 which I believe is this couple. I'm not sure if any of the Edward's listed in the 1889-90 city directory information is my Edward. I have not found them in the 1910 census, but without an index it is slow going. I am looking for information on this family. I know the son John died young but do not know when. I know that Edward died sometime between 1900 and 1910 and Catherine Moran Larkin married Rudolf KRENKE but I do not know when. I know Catherine died in 1922 in Kansas City, MO at her daughter's house.

January 2, 2001 Jeanne Delaney Hubbard
I have just discovered that my g grandmother remarried after her first husband's death. Theis would have been between 1900 and 1910, I think. My aunt remembers his first name as "Rudy" and the burial records of Katherine Moran Larkin KRENKE in 1922 show his last name to be KRENKE. The family was living in St. Paul then.

Anyone know of this man or this name? Thanks. Jeanne

I am searching for the family of Mr. & Mrs. D. Diesang, of St. Paul. Mrs. Diesang, and possibly Mr. Diesang, would have emigreated to the United States from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, possibly in the period 1860-1870. Mrs. Diesang came to Waterloo with her parents (or may have been born in Waterloo) from Canton Aargau, Switzerland, in 1855. Her parents (My gg grandparents) were named Joseph Fischer and Zecilia (or Cecilia) Metzcher. They were Roman Catholic. I know for certain that they were living in St. Paul in 1896, because they are named in Joseph Fischer's obituary announcement in a March 4, 1896 Waterloo, Ontario newspaper.

Linda Rangitsch
I am looking for Joseph Rangitsch and his wife Elizabeth Clemmons. They lived in St. Paul when their oldest son, Bernard Joseph was born. Bernard Joseph (b 27 aug 1870) was my husband's grandfather. I found from Elizabeth Hennebry, oldest daughter of Bernard, that he worked for the railroad and two of the daughters died of the flu epidemic. The family came from Hungary and I have been told that the name was simplified. Any information that you could find would be greatly appreciated. There are still some of the Rangitsch family in St. Paul. I am afraid that they did not do a very good job keeping track of their family. My husband has many cousins he has never meet. Thank you for your time and your willingness to help us in this endeavor. Linda Rangitsch

I am looking for the descendants or every person being able to give me information about :
Born 1862 September 15th
In "Wittring près Sarreguemines"
In France
He emigrates to the United State in the years 1880-1890. The only information I have are 3 photographs of this person. The first one (photo1) was made by the photographer GOLLING - ST PAUL 93E. 7th ST.
The second one (photo2) was mailed in ABERDENN-SOUTH DAKOTA in 1900 or 1910, without name of photographer.
The third one (photo3) was taken in the 1930 years with his wife and daughter. The photographer is also GOLLING - ST PAUL.
He dies in the USA in the years 1930-1940.
It seems that the most part of his heritage was used to built a church located probably in ST PAUL or surroundings.
My name is Christophe SCHOENENBURG. My e-mail is : codetel@wanadoo.fr
Thanks in advance for your help.

........ 2 Nellie Kelly b. ca. 1869 in Iowa
William Sr. was a wagon driver on the trail between Omaha and Denver in the 1870's and 1880's, so he might have been a teamster when they were in St. Paul also. They appear to have been in St. Paul from about 1856 until 1861 or 62. The family were devout Catholic, the children all involved with major financial support of the Church in Nebraska, so I'm sure those who were born in MN were baptized there. If this family looks familiar to you or you have suggestions on MN resources which might help me find them, I'd sure like to hear from you. Thanks, Jo Newkirk-Hornecker

Verne E. Schwartz
Looking for information about Emil Schwarz (Schwartz)
Emil Schwarz was my grandfather. According to my fathers birth records Emil was born in Germany in the year 1867. His occupation was listed as a taylor. Emil married my grandmother, Pearl Mary Emerson around 1912 or 1913, I think in St. Paul. My father Rodger Edward Schwartz (spelling was changed) was born 31 July 1914 in St Paul. I have no more information on Emil then that. He disappeared. Pearl remarried just before she died on 9 Dec. 1922. His name was Edward Haun. The court placed my father in the care of his grandmother Mary Belle Colton. When she died in 1924, my father was placed in the care of his aunt, Olive Emerson.

What I would like to know is what happened to Emil? If he really was married to Pearl Emerson, there must be some record of it. Also in order for Pearl to remarry, there must be either a death record or a divorce record.

Can you help me? I have been looking for my grandfather for years and have come up with nothing.

Thank you for your time

I'm looking for any info on my Great Grandfather, Gideon Canell (Quesnel). I was told that he ran a brothel in St. Paul in the early 1900's. I have found my family back many generations, but find it much more difficult to find out anything in the 1900's. I know that Gideon was separated from me Great Grandmother by 1900 because I found her listed as head of house on the 1900 Michigan census. I believe his daughter Olive came to MN because he was living here. I believe she was married in St. Paul and I know she had her children there.

I've search for descendants of Nettie Elmira WELLS who married Walter Everett BRIMHALL on 21 Sept 1881 in St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota. Walter BRIMHALL was born in St. Paul on 12 Dec 1860. I am a descendant of Nettie's brother William Miles Wells. Their father Miles Wells was a victim of Amercia's worst marine disaster, the Sultana. This steamship was bringing home Union soldiers who had been held captive at Cahaba and Andersonville prison camps when it exploded on 27 April 1865 killing between 1500-1900 soldiers. I do not believe this story was passed down through the generations as I have experienced through William Miles Wells' family.

Nettie and Walter Brimhall had 3 children that we are aware of:
Mary Edith Brimhall b 11 Nov 1883 in St. Paul
Reuben Walter Brimhall b 8 Nov 1889 in Minneapolis
Dorothy Alice Brimhall b 28 May 1896 in St. Paul
We do not, at this time, have any marriage or death information on any of the Brimhall individuals.

I look forward to hearing from any researchers on the WELLS/BRIMHALL surnames. Nettie is listed as widowed in the 1920 Kansas City Census and was living in Kansas City at the time of her brother's death in Jan 1919.
Thank you.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Searching for the Fletcher HARSHMAN family. Known to be in Ramsey County in 1909. Fletcher married a woman named Lily___ in St. Paul. Their son John Charles HARSHMAN was born in 1909 in St. Paul.

Family stories say three brothers came from German in the late 1880's

My grandfather was Stanley A. LaPree died in Nevis, MN in 1978. He married my grandmother, Mabel G. LaPree October 24, 1930 in Ramsey County/ St. Paul, Minnesota. At that time he was a Ramsey County deputy sheriff. I have tried to verify this but there are no records going back that far. My father last saw his father at age 3, so there is little family history available. Out of respect for his mother, who never remarried, we didn't begin our search until her passing. Sadly, Stanley too had passed away. I am looking for any information regarding Stanley and/or family members. >From information found, it is believed that he moved to Ramsey County while still an infant. Was he married before or after Mabel G. LaPree, was he a deputy sheriff in Ramsey County in the 30's? Are his parents and/or family buried in the area (Emil and Henrietta) ? Thank you for your time and assistance.

George B. Gardner
I have no clue about who he is and need help. I have his Honorable Discharge from the Civil War Era. He was discharged in 1865 at Fort Snelling.
The Discharge is an official orginial written in 1901.That it is a later copy has not escaped my notice. But it makes me believe it was important in 1901 for someone to get a copy. It was among my grandparents things. It is framed and has been in the frame forever. I assume it to be a relative of one or the other grandparent.
Please does any one know of this man. Thanks

I am researching the surname SAIKO. Andreas Saiko (born around 1850) was married to Eleanor Poeschl (born around 1852). They had a daughter Adelaide (born 1880 in Austria -or Austria/Hungary?). Andreas Saiko was naturalized in Ramsey/MN. Can anyone tell me when he arrived or when he was naturalized there? When had he arrived in America? Where had he come from and which ship had he travelled on? I can only assume that my great grandad could have been directly related to him, i.e. Emmanuel Saiko born 1860 in Bohemia. I will appreciate any information you can give me, and who knows, I may have information that you might find useful too... Thank you!

I am trying to find ancestory information from my father, Richard Eugene Brown's side of the family. My parents divorced before I was one and I never had much contact with my paternal side of the family. My grand parents , Marvin and Esther Brown, lived in White Bear for as long as I can remember. Esther died in the late 1950's or early 1960's. Marvin died in the late 1980's or early 1990's. Their children consisted of my father, Richard, Muriel, Donna, who committed suicide by jumping off of a bride, somewhere in the Twin Cities area, possibly in the 1980's or early 1990's. There was also Ella, Robert, Joan and Daryl. Daryl died sometime during the 1960's. Thank you for any information that may be found.

I am looking for information about my ggrandfather William Henry MULVEY b: cir. 1875-76, his sister Etta b: cir. 1870, and Williams parents.
I have the Marriage Certificate of whom I think to be William and Etta's parents, but it is very difficult to read. This is what I think it reads; (W.?) H. MULVEY of Hennepin Co., and Augusta BLAKE of Hennepin Co., married in Ramsey Co., 13 Nov 1862 by the Justice of the Peace. I can't make out the name of the Justice of the Peace, or one of the witnesses. The name of a second witness, appears to be Ch. (probably Charles) H. BISHOP.
W. H. and Augusta, (AKA: Amanda ?), died when William and Etta were young. William was raised in an Orphan Asylum in the area of Minneapolis or St. Paul. I've been told Etta was taken in by a woman as a house girl.
William Henry MULVEY married my ggrandmother Grace WALKER on 4 Feb 1903, in Stevens Point, Portage Co., WI. Etta was never married.
Grace was b: 1 Dec 1881 in Stevens Point to William WALKER and Anna Rosetta (Rose Etta) "Rose" FELKER.
William WALKER and Rose FELKER were married in Almond, Portage Co., WI on 27 Dec 1879.
