LAMERE - PLANTE

Rich Burnham Tue Jan 2 16:14:01 2001
I recently came across an old photo of a woman I believe to be my great grandmother, Zeus LAMERE, taken in front of an farmhouse with six children and a man who may or may not be her husband, Adolphe PLANTE. Handwriting on the back of the photo leads me to believe it was taken in Kent, Minnesota in 1876. I always thought the couple lived in the Massachusetts/New Hampshire durring this period. Could anyone in the area do a lookup for me and see if any PLANTES or LAMERES lived in the Kent area durring this time? Thanks,Rich Burnham,jburn2000@aol.com

I'm looking for information on my Great Grandfather August REINKE. He was married to my Great Grandmother Agnes( ULRICH) REINKE who later marred Joseph WANEK after August's death. Agnes was my Grandmother's (Margaret Sophia REINKE) mother. Margaret was the only child from the first marriage and nothing is known about her father August. Margaret was married to Ludvick Palmer JOHNSON and later Peter JACOBS. I would also like to find any information on Ludvick JOHNSON (my mother' Luella Mae JOHNSON) father. All we know of his background is he was raised by his mother and never had a father around; Margaret Sophia REINKE my moms mother. Margaret married Ludvick Palmer JOHNSON and later divorced Ludvick and Married Peter JACOBS. My Mother Luella Mae (JOHNSON) BAUMGART lives with my dad Ray BAUMGART in Detroit Lakes. For my mothers entire life she and the rest of the family has wondered about both of her parents background. My mother is 69 years old and I would like to find something while she is still living to give her some roots. Thank you for any information you can provide. Most sincerely, Daniel R. Baumgart
P.S. The REINKEs, JOHNSON, WANEKs have lived in Breckenridge, Wahpeton, Doran, Kent, Dwight, ND and Lisbon, ND. My Grandfather Ludvick was born near Lisbon. The REINKEs and WANEKs probably lived mostly around Doran or Kent not sure though.

I have a photographs of 3 men and 2 little boys leaning against an old car with the back end of another in the near background. My grandfather Paul Eugene COREY is the center man. The photo was taken between 1913 and 1926, stamped on the back "Super-Gloss Print, J. A. Johnson, Breckenridge. - Minn." I am interested in obtaining a better copy and it would be wonderful fun to identify the other 4 persons. Written in Paul's hand on the back is "Me and my pals especialy the two boys P.C." Since he married my grandmother in 1926 in PA, I'm fairly certain the photo was taken prior to 1926. He would have been 18 in 1913.

I'm seeking information on Johannes IVERSON born 1851 in Norway. He married Karen Clara HANSON in Fosston, Minnesota, 1890. They lived in Fosston, Minnesota. I found Johannes IVERSON's naturalization papers (first papers) were filed in Wilkin county in 1884. Would like any information on any IVERSON families in the area. I know that Johannes came to America around 1873-1878. Johannes IVERSON passed away on December 7, 1903. Buried in Fosston, Minnesota.
Karen Clara HANSON, later married Krist SKOIEN, and then Ernest DOLPHIN.
I will share more information by request. Debi
