I have a picture of a Lorena McFARLANE graduating class of between 1900 and 1905 University of Minneapolis. believe she taught in Minneapolis and according to back of picture may be daughter of William McFarlane. because of there being three of the same picture in our McFarlane group of pictures I feel she must have been a close relative and he father may have come from Ontario. Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I'm trying to find out what happened to my mother's two aunts who emigrated to Minnesota.
1.Nilsine Cecilia aka Sine Nilsdtr Tysse (or could be Skard) emigrated to Madison, Minnesota. She was born in Tysse, Samnanger, Hordaland, Norway in 1886. She left Norway on April 17, 1910 onboard the Canadian Pacific. She married someone called Swanson (probably a Swede).
2. Anna Nilsdtr Tysse (or Skard) emigrated to Redwing, Minnesota on April 28, 1921 onboard Skand Amerika Linje III. She was born in Tysse, Samnanger, Hordaland, Norway in 1895. She married someone called Högberg/Hoegbergh...probably a Swede too. At least one of them should have children from what my mother says. The family lost touch with them after my grandfather (their brother) died in 1929. I would appreciate all help.

Clarence Danger
Ira DANGER Searching for information on Ira Danger who lived in Minnesota sometime in the 1800's or early 1900's. I don't know where. Wife was named Frances, but she was called "Bonnie" I think this was because her last name was Beaudine (not sure of that spelling) He would have been a farmer, and I know they had ten children. My father was born in 1917 in Hardin county Iowa, so they moved some time before 1917. Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.

John Knecht
William John KNECHT, youngest son of John and Dorothea (Kurz) Knecht was born October 6, 1866 in New Haven, Connecticut. Shortly after the death of his mother William left New Haven about 1900. It was rumored that William had moved out west, but it is not known where? Found in the Civil War pension papers of John Knecht, father of William, is a letter from Merrill, Plymouth County, Iowa. This letter, from a Mrs. Frank Kowalski to the Pension Office, Washington, DC, requested the address of John Knecht who served in the Civil War from New Haven. The accuracy of the data contained in this letter would suggest that it was obtained from a source who had knowledge and was familiar with this information. I believe the source of this information was William Knecht? Frank Kowalski, this women's husband, worked as a carpenter as did William Knecht. Most of the carpenters, back in these days, traveled hundreds of miles in search of work building houses and barns. There is good reason to believe that William passed through Merrill and then moved on to another state? The reason Mrs. Kowalski wrote this letter may never be known, however, I believe it had something to do with William Knecht? Need any information on William Knecht!

Bonnie R. Olson
I am searching for the burial place of Anna Joanne (OLSON ) SABOE born 20 July 1866 married Frederick SABOE possibly in Iowa or Illinois. She died 17 April 1902 in Minnesota, Her obituary was published in the Fergus Falls Daily Journal on April 24, 1902, stating her cause of death and that the funeral services were held from the Presbyterian church conducted by Rev Meisel, pastor of the Norwegian Lutheran church of Fergus Falls. It also states that "the remains were laid to rest in the church cemetery" and states that she died from pneumonia and inflammation of the bowel. May have been living in or near Dawson or Fergus Falls at the time. She was the mother of five children. After her death, the children were sent to Iowa to be raised by relatives. All I know of Frederick Saboe, but he died in Fort Dodge, Iowa on 23 Nov. 1933 at the age of 72 years. Anna Joanne (Olson) Saboe was the sister of my husband's paternal grandfather. Her grandchildren do not know where she is buried and they would very much like to have that information. I regret that I do not have more precise information as to where they were living at the time of her death. Anything available will be appreciated. E-mail me your address for reimbursement.

Erinlee
I am researching my father's LEE family. My father's name was Frank Oliver Lee. He was born in St. James Minnesota on October 19, 1891 to Peter (Per) Lee and Mary (Marit)Lee. He was baptized on July 10, 1892 according to the records of the Long Lake Lutheran Congregation, and a copy of the certificate was signed by a Pastor A. (?) Daniels and witnessed by:
1)Torkild(?) ans Lena Lien
2)Charles Bugten(?)
3)Anna Horten(?) on January 19, 1957.
My father had requested the birth and baptismal certificate as he had come to Weldon, Saskatchewan, Canada with his parents in 1902 when he was eleven years old and before immigration records were kept between the U.S.A. and Canada in the great plains region. My father had the following brother and sisters: Severt, Anna Torina, Lena, Pauline, Inga, and Mabel (now all deceased). I know that he had relatives in the St. James region as I have an old post card from St. James, Mn postmarked 1904 from a " cousin Bertina". Any information would be greatly appreciated as I am trying to trace my family back to Norway.
