Beneva Mondor 21 Mar 1997
Hi, I am trying to locate a record of my mother's marriage to another man and possible birth of a baby girl to them prior to her marriage to my father. Her name was Eva Angeline (or possibly Evangeline) Bauer. Her birth date was 9/16/94 in Marshfield, Wis. She died on 8/3/70 in St. Paul, Minn. Her marriage to my father, Peter Beno Schulte, took place in St. Paul, Minn. on 5/30/20, I believe, so the previous marriage would have been two to three years before that, maybe more. I think the first marriage took place in Hennepin County in Minneapolis. Can you tell me where I might find this record and how I would go about getting a copy of it. I did write to Hennepin County requesting a search but they returned my check with small notations that no record was found. I still have relatives in St. Paul and visit there occasionally so I could go somewhere to look this up, if I just knew where to go. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
