born in 1961. She was married to Ralph Burdette Shade, who died in 1979.
Any informationou might have would be appreciated.

KARL ALBIN KARLSSON/CARL CARLSSON/CARL CARLSON
Looking for Karl Albin Karlsson, born 1895 i Sweden. Left for Minnesota in
1914 to avoid being drafted. The family has never heard of him since. He
may have spelled his name differently (Carl Carlsson or Carl Carlson, maybe)
and lied about his age since his was young when he ran away from home. Appreciate
any theories - this is an 87 year old mystery still waiting to be solved.

I'm looking for any information on a Scot H. PORTER. He is listed as the
father on my grandfather's birth certificate. My grandfather is Delmar V.
Porter and he was born in the town of Heier September 17, 1907. I don't know
where to locate records of a town that no longer exists. There is Native
American descent. I am also searching that route. 1882 is the closest birth
date I can locate for Scot. Help!!

Who was the father of Bert U. MERRITT of Minn.? Although Ora J. Bragg and
Bert Merritt seem to be frequently listed in their databases, I have not
yet reliably determined Bert's parents. I believe possibly Cassius Clay Merritt
but I don't know. Here is why I have on Bert:
Bert U. Merritt was born about1883, and died May 9, 1964 in Virginia, St.
Louis County, Minnesota. He married Ora Jeanette Bragg 1900, daughter of
Barnabus Bragg and Mary Cornman. Ora was born December 20, 1883 in Lost Creek,
Pierce County, Wisconsin, and died March 2, 1956 in Mountain Iron, St. Louis
Children of Bert Merritt and Ora Bragg were:
2 i. Clinton Herbert Merritt, born January 18, 1905; died April 18, 1979
in Hibbing, St. Louis County, Minnesota.
More About Clinton Merritt: Residence: Pengilly, Itasca County, Minnesota
3 ii. Truman Merritt, born November 19, 1906 in Minnesota.
4 iii. Clyde Merritt, born 1908.
5 iv. Genevieve Merritt, born 1913.
6 v. Inez Merritt, born October 8, 1902.
7 vi. LiAnna Merritt.
8 vii. Ora Merritt.
9 viii. Florence Belle Merritt, born July 24, 1919.
Something I have been trying to figure out for a long time is--who were the
parents of Second Lt. Thomas J. Merritt, died Oct 11, 1944 in Europe? He
entered the Army from St. Louis County and was a member of the 508th Parachute
Infantry Regt. at the time of death. Thomas J. Merritt is listed on the WWII
Veterans Roll of Honor in Duluth, Minn. Not listed on the Roll of Honor is
the fact that he is buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten,
Although I believe that I have pretty decent records on early day Merritt
family members from the Duluth, St. Louis County area, I have been able to
determine who was the father of Thomas J. Merritt.

I am looking for my grandfather Anders Gustaf BERGSTROM, immigrated to MN
in 1869. I think he first located is Isanti county, but the federal census
seems to be incomplete at that time in that county. I also looked in the

that time. Can you tell me if there is a complete 1870 census for Cambridge
and North Branch, Isanti County? I need to actually look at the census. Thank
