BUSH posted by
Dianne L. Bush on Monday, October 5, 1998
Dr. Henry Harrison BUSH. Have you heard any information on a young
son of his that was supposed to have gone out after the cows, and didn't
find them. Returned home only to be told to go back out and don't come back
until you find them. The boy never returned home. The next Spring they found
his remains by a log. Only some clothing and buttons remained. He froze to
death. This is what I was told and they were supposed to be living at Rush
City at the time. I believe the boys name may have been George Washington
Bush and I think his
birth date may have been Aug.24,1855. Now there are conflicting reports on
his age. Some have said he was 7 yrs. old and some say he was 15 yrs old
when he died. If you can help with this I would be very happy to hear from
you. Dr. Bush was
my husband's Great Grandfather.

FALK posted by
Steve Anderson on Saturday, May 16, 1998
I'm descended from Jonus Peter FALK, b. 1793 Hovmantorp, Sweden d.
1881, buried Glader cemetery. He arrived in MN from Sweden 1861 with two
daughters, Eva Charlotte and Hannah Mathilda. I would like any info, or source
referrals you can provide. I am looking in particular for copy of now out
of print "History of Chisago County", which I'm told includes material on
Jonus and other family members. Most other FALK's arriving Chisago
in that era were related to Jonus, from Hovmantorp. Regards...
FALK posted by
Sandy Hjelmberg. on Saturday, May 16,
Looking for information about the children of Jonas Petter FALK. History
of Chisago County indicates that Andrew
Falk (b.1847 d. 1896)
may have been his son. Andrew married Emma
Smith daughter of
John Smith. I believe
Andrew to be part of a different
Falk family but because of the confusing name changes need information
confirming that he is not the son of Jonas. Andrew was my great grandfather.
Any information is appreciated.
