Ralphgroth I have been told that Christian Kregger built a church in Trenton. I have a picture of a large group in front of a building that is under construction which I believe is the church he built. They are listed in the 1920 census of Williams County. They arrived after 1912 and left after 1921. email@example.com. Thank you for posting this for me. 6-19-2009
am trying to find information about my great uncle E A Boldt (Earnest A
Boldt) and his wife Mary. The 1930 US Federal Census shows Earnest
and Mary Boldt living in Tioga, Williams County, ND.
He is 43 years old and working as a garage mechanic and Mary is aged 29 and listed as a public school teacher. I believe they were married about 1923 in Stanley, ND. The census report states Mary was born in MN about 1901. Earnest was born in South Dakota in 1887 and died in Oregon in 1962 and is buried at Williamette National Cemetery. No one in the family knows anything about Mary except she died a "mysterious death." I am assuming she died in North Dakota but need to verify it and am very curious as to the "mysterious death."
Thank you. Donna Bogott 29 July 2007
Lisa Looking for
information on Alma (Swanson) Magnuson. She was married to Otto Magnuson
around 1910. Otto and Alma had a daughter whose name, we believe,

She is buried in the Stordahl Cemetary with her Baby Olida Ontine Magnuson.
We are trying to find out what happened to Emma. We have very little
info on Otto and Alma's Marriage and just recently learned of Emma's birth.

John L. Inman Looking
for information on my wife's grandfather, William Storm. Think middle name
is Ray but could be Joseph. He is in 1920 census of Divide County and was
killed in coal mine accident in Williams County in 1924 and according to
Clerk in Williston no death certificate but a record of accident and death
on 10 Dec 1024 with address of Hanks. The two children differ in middle
name. Either Ray or Joseph. William married Eileen Louise Terrilion. Two
children Ray LeRoy and Wanda Delia Storm. Think he came from Germany and
could not speak much English. Stories say his name could have been Stone
originally but in search of North Dakota so many Stones that have no ides.
We have just come to dead end.

I am looking for any information about a Ludwig (Ludvig) Palm that had
farm land near Williston in the early 1900's. He & his first
wife had 4 children,
June, William (Wilhelm) Leonard & Myrtle. I am not able to find her name,

Around 1900 Ludwig married Bessie Nelson of Bayfield WI, but apparently they
returned as their children also list North Dakota as their birth place.
(Howard, Betty, Richard, & Jaon) I can only find them in the 1930 census, &
by then they were in Mpls.

Wilton. I found a Theodore Shelton, age 39 with his children, Belva, 16, Norman
14, Robert 12, and Raymond E. 8. Also Theodores father William, 69. My fathers

lodge and he might have also belonged to Modern Woodmen of America. They
adopted a child in 1913 and the family lived there until 1926, when they
moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan. Marion and Lida were both born in Indiana.

last name. Would like to know if she knew the Phillips family. Any information
