COMER, DRAKE, MYERS
I'm looking for information on William Henry Drake who I believe was married to Maranda Cornelia COMER (daughter of John Comer & Deborah Wooley) in 1901. The William Henry DRAKED I'm looking for was the birth-father of my great-grandmother, Bertha Elnora MYERS (01-24-1890). She was born to Carrie Mable MYERS of Morrison County, MN; while Mr. DRAKED was married to a woman named Clara Estella (They were married in McLeod County in 1875; divorced in 1900 in Morrison County, MN). Thus, we're the unclaimed family!!! According to my Grandmother, Mr. DRAKED lived in Oregon or Washington State in the 1910's-early 1920's, as her parents took their children out there to visit him. She believed he died in February 1936. I did find a Wm Drake who died 02-18-1936 in Benton County, OR and it has "Nelia" listed as his spouse. I do believe this would be "Cornelia". I sent today for his death cert. Sure hope it's the same William & Nelia. If any of this helps you, or if you have any information to share with me, that would be wonderful!

PARSON
Trying to find my ggg grandfather Mathias PARSON and his wife Jemima. Minnesota Census 1870 McLeod County Hale Twp lists the name, but no image available online...so not entirely sure this is the right Mathias. He appeared in 1860 census for Winnebago Co, Wisconsin - I've seen that image and it's the right family...but they drop out of sight after that except for this Minnesota index listing. Mathias would be 74 in 1970, his wife would be 64...and though the name list appears correct, there are additional names I was not expecting (Mathias' brother may have moved with him..unsure) - so I really need to know the ages and relationships from that census. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

CHRISTENSEN
Hello, I am investigating my Grandmother who was adopted. Her birth name was Caroline CHRISTENSEN. She was born in August 1890 and it is been said that it may have been in Hutchinson, Minnesota. I had also heard Winthrop, Minnesota The funny thing is I was at a family reunion this weekend and different older family members were discussing her birth name. We had always believed it was CHRISTIANSEN but two older relatives differed on the name. One said she was positive it was Jensen or Janson and one said Christiansen. That is why your inquiry intrigued me. I am not sure how old she was when she was adopted but she does not remember her birth mother or parents. She was adopted by August and Mary Voss of Waseca Minnesota. Could any of the Christiansenís or Jensenís have had a baby named Caroline in 1890? I would love to hear from you.

EID/ WALLER
Would like to locate information about Edward C. and Jessie O. [nee Waller] EID. Their parents names are unknown but they [parents] were born in Norway. They lived in Denver, Colorado in April 1910. Edward is listed as a "clergyman" in the 1910 US Census. They were natives of Minnesota and Wisconsin respentively. I believe some of their children, including their son, Edward Waller EID, were born in Denver. Others, Wendell, Arnold, Luther and Solvia [sic] were born in Minnesota but I don't know where. The family lived in Boyd Village, Ten Mile Twp., Lac Qui Parle Co., MN in the January 1920 US Census. And Edward C. was still a minisiter. I have been unable to find this family in the 1930 US Census. I believe the family moved around a lot. Jessie O. [Waller] EID's last known residence in the SSDI was McLeod County, MN. I welcome any hints. Am happy to share information on descendants of Edward Waller EID.

IVES
IVES Seeking information regarding my gg grandfather Governour Kimball IVES (aka G.K. or K.G ) and family. He enlisted in the Minnesota 9th company H formed in Carver County part of the regiment formed in Glencoe and Hutchinson. He resided in both McLeod Co and Carver Co. In 1866, in Hutchinson, he married Mary Etta Neil Reese, the widow of William Stanley Reese also from Glencoe/Hutchinson who also served in the 9th company H and died in Confederate prison camp in Florence SC. Both Ives and Reese were captured at Guntown, Miss and transferred to Andersonville Prison. She was the daughter of James Neil, one of the oldest men in McLeod Co to enlist at age 66 in 1861. Her sister Susanna or Susan was married to McLeod farmer Sylvanus Wakefield, who also enlisted in the Minnesota 4th and may have died in 1863. While the Wakefields and Neil appear in McLeod records, no mention is made of Ives in Minnesota until he appears in the old soldiersí home in Minneapolis, where he resided until his death in 1921 and burial in the GAR section of Lakewood Cemetery. The family bible lists many events (marriages, births and deaths) in Hutchinson, Glencoe and Young America but I can find no supporting evidence so far. Any suggestions? Also does anyone know of any photos of the Minnesota fourth and ninth regiments? I have seen various group pictures of other regiments; especially the Minnesota 1st but none of the ninth. Seeking more information on IVES, NEIL, REESE, WAKEFIELD families.

DRESSEL
I am trying to find information about Peter and Pauline (DRESSEL) MEYER, who I believe lived much of their lives in the Hutchinson area. I have Peter as immigrating to the US about 1876 and living in the Glencoe and Bird Island areas. He could have been a farm hand on the John WESELOH farm, according to the 1880 census. He married Pauline Dressel in 1886 and they had nine children. I believe Pauline's parents to be Henry (Henrik) and Fredericka DRESSEL. The 1880 census shows them in living in the Waconia area. Pauline had siblings Ernst and Hulda, who I believe still have descendants in the Hutchinson area. Peter had known brothers named Herman and Henry and known sister named Minnie. Peter died in 1945, Pauline died in 1943. ANY information would be most appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!!

MEYER
I am trying to find information about Peter and Pauline (DRESSEL) MEYER, who I believe lived much of their lives in the Hutchinson area. I have Peter as immigrating to the US about 1876 and living in the Glencoe and Bird Island areas. He could have been a farm hand on the John WESELOH farm, according to the 1880 census. He married Pauline Dressel in 1886 and they had nine children. I believe Pauline's parents to be Henry (Henrik) and Fredericka Dressel. The 1880 census shows them in living in the Waconia area. Pauline had siblings Ernst and Hulda, who I believe still have descendants in the Hutchinson area. Peter had known brothers named Herman and Henry and known sister named Minnie. Peter died in 1945, Pauline died in 1943. ANY information would be most appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!!
