  Ken Nordtvedt   My g. grandfather Isaac Edward KOSIER left Stephenson Co., Il for the "lead mines" about 1880 .  Feel that, according to family tradition, he may have gone to Lafayette County, WI.  He next shows up in Cherokee Co., IA about 1890.  Any help with this would be appreciated.  Thank You!

 Greg Sanders  I am looking for William SANDERS family birth records 1848-1857 at a town called "VITA GRAND". The names of the persons are William John, Emilie, Francis, Joe, and Edwin SANDERS.

 Steve Roberts Feb 1997  I am looking for any DIERINGERS  in Wisconsin.  Mostly in Dodge and Fondulac Co.'s but am interested in any other counties as well. My great, great... was Norbert DIERINGER  in Theresa Twp in Dodge Co around 1850 - he had 3 other brothers Sigmund, Andreas, and Barnabas.  If you run across any I would appreciate hearing from you.  

 Bev Aldridge Feb 1997  I am looking for THOMPSONS and PEDERSEN.  Wiota is only a possible location for them.  An article in Landings Laget stated that Wiota, WI was a location that many Land, Norway people emigrated to .  I have looked for them in Dane Co, WI and didn't have much luck locating  them in census or marriage/death records.  Petrine was born Feb, 1834 in Land, Norway and emigrated to Wisconsin in 1849 with her parents Peder HOVELSEN or could be called PEDERSEN? and married Kittle THOMPSON sometime between 1850 & 1854 when their first child Betty was born.  Other children all born in WI:  Anne, Julia, Gilman, Lisa & two unknown children.  They where suppose to have moved to Swift Co. MN in 1878, but I only find Pertine and the children in the 1880 census.  Kittle is nowhere to be found in Minnesota.  I did locate a K. THOMPSON in the Madison city directory for 1871/72 and in the book Norweigian to America he was listed as a hoteler in Madison WI.  This information was given by his son Gilman.  Not much to go on, but whatever information that anyone can give me would be most appreciated.   THANKS!
