HUNZIKER posted by Dorothy Swanson on Monday, March 30, 1998

I am working on my genealogy and am looking for information on my great grandfather, Johannes (John) HUNZIKER. He supposedly started the Great Northern Hotel in Cottonwood. We are pretty sure he was living in or around the Cottonwood area between the years 1886 - 1892. These date are a guess as a couple of his children were born in Cottonwood. He may have lived in Yellow Medicine County and had the Cottonwood Hotel in Cottonwood, Lyon County. Can you give me any information on the Great Northern Hotel in Cottonwood? Do you have any information on Johannes (John) Hunziker. He was also a Clergymen although I donít have information that he had a Church in Cottonwood. I would appreciate any information or pictures you would have on Mr. Hunziker and/or the Great Northern Hotel in Cottonwood. Was there a Cottonwood Hotel back then?
