I am searching for any information on Elmer E. Atkinson, who lived on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, probably around the turn of this century. Harold and his wife, Minnie, had two sons, Harold and Donald. Elmer owned a clothing store, called E. E. Atkinson's. After his death the store was sold. Later on, Harold opened a store Harold's Ladies Ready to Wear. This is all that I know about this family. If anyone can help me with this, please send me a post. I have quite a few holes that need to be filled in concerning this lineage. Thanks! Esther Atkinson-Turmelle

BARB BEDNARZ <barog@webtv.net> Tue Apr 21 23:39:37 1998

HANSON/HANSEN, CARL (POSSIBLY CHAS.)1877 or 1878 Please disregard my previous query as many new developments have enabled us to find his children and ex-wife. Carl was quite a fiddler and thought he would go to Wisconsin and make a fortune with his fiddle playing. He never returned from Wisconsin and we are sure he probably had another family in Wisconsin. We are establishing a family tree and we would love to find his extended family or friends. On the 1910 Federal Census for Minneapolis, he lived at 2123 Washington Avenue North with his wife Caroline and children Hjalmer (Hilmer), Signe, Borghild and Bjorn. We think Caroline was pregnant with their last child Agnes. Anyone knowing the whereabouts of our Great Grandfather after 1910, would you please contact me at barog@webtv.net and thank you for your help.

I'm looking for any & all VAN NORMAN's, Van Arman's, Van Orman's, basically if it sounds like Van Norman I'm interested! Specifically looking for descendants of Whiting Fleming Van Norman & Margaret McCleish who married in Canada, moved first to New York in 1831 then to Whiteside Co, Illinois in 1835. They returned to Ontario after a few years, remained there for awhile, then returned to Illinois settling in Kane County where Whiting died in 1861. Of their children (Roxalina, Mary Ann, Emma/Amy, John Depew, Whiting Delevan, Benjamin DeWitt, and Lucien Patton) John was in Minneapolis by the 1880's, he married Laura Pinney and they had four known children - Mary Ann, Whiting Pinney, William H, and Harry Lucien. John & Laura died in Minneapolis in 1915 & 1904 respectively, son Whiting died there in 1886. It's assumed the remaining three children raised families there or nearby; Lucien was in Minneapolis by 1885 when his wife Ella/Ellen Annetta Rose died (they had lived in Illinois & Texas previously). Their daughter Bessie Rose Van Norman married John Winslow SMILEY in Minneapolis in 1894. They had three known children Anetta (married a BARRY), Rose Harriet (married a BUMMERFIELD) & an infant son. Would like to hear from all Van Norman and variant spelling researchers, even if you have no connection to the family mentioned above. If you do connect to the family above, e-mail and get acquainted with a 'long-lost' cousin!
