THE TOWN OF FINLAYSON, MINNESOTA
This information was
contributed by one of our readers who writes:
The town of Finlayson is located on Highway 18. Towns that are near are Geise and Mcgrath. My grandparents, Frank Leitner and Johanna Mehlstaub Leitner are buried in the Catholic cemetery in Mcgrath, MN. Near my grandparents' farm was a man named Josef Wolf who also immigrated from Hungary. He was about the same age as my grandfather, and was not married-no children. As a child, I remember Mr. Wolf and my grandfather talking in what they called "low" German. Mr. Wolf is also probably buried in the same cemetery, because we used to pick him up to go to church in Mcgrath with us.
