Ralph Shade
I'm trying to track the ancestry of my maternal grandmother, Edith SHADE, nee' STANDAFER. She was born in the 1890's, and I believe died before I was born in 1961. She was married to Ralph Burdette Shade, who died in 1979. Any informationou might have would be appreciated.

Mats Karlsson
Looking for Karl Albin Karlsson, born 1895 i Sweden. Left for Minnesota in 1914 to avoid being drafted. The family has never heard of him since. He may have spelled his name differently (Carl Carlsson or Carl Carlson, maybe) and lied about his age since his was young when he ran away from home. Appreciate any theories - this is an 87 year old mystery still waiting to be solved.

I'm looking for any information on a Scot H. PORTER. He is listed as the father on my grandfather's birth certificate. My grandfather is Delmar V. Porter and he was born in the town of Heier September 17, 1907. I don't know where to locate records of a town that no longer exists. There is Native American descent. I am also searching that route. 1882 is the closest birth date I can locate for Scot. Help!!

Ron Merritt
Who was the father of Bert U. MERRITT of Minn.? Although Ora J. Bragg and Bert Merritt seem to be frequently listed in their databases, I have not yet reliably determined Bert's parents. I believe possibly Cassius Clay Merritt but I don't know. Here is why I have on Bert:
Bert U. Merritt was born about1883, and died May 9, 1964 in Virginia, St. Louis County, Minnesota. He married Ora Jeanette Bragg 1900, daughter of Barnabus Bragg and Mary Cornman. Ora was born December 20, 1883 in Lost Creek, Pierce County, Wisconsin, and died March 2, 1956 in Mountain Iron, St. Louis County, Minnesota.
Children of Bert Merritt and Ora Bragg were:
2 i. Clinton Herbert Merritt, born January 18, 1905; died April 18, 1979 in Hibbing, St. Louis County, Minnesota.
More About Clinton Merritt: Residence: Pengilly, Itasca County, Minnesota
3 ii. Truman Merritt, born November 19, 1906 in Minnesota.
4 iii. Clyde Merritt, born 1908.
5 iv. Genevieve Merritt, born 1913.
6 v. Inez Merritt, born October 8, 1902.
7 vi. LiAnna Merritt.
8 vii. Ora Merritt.
9 viii. Florence Belle Merritt, born July 24, 1919.
Something I have been trying to figure out for a long time is--who were the parents of Second Lt. Thomas J. Merritt, died Oct 11, 1944 in Europe? He entered the Army from St. Louis County and was a member of the 508th Parachute Infantry Regt. at the time of death. Thomas J. Merritt is listed on the WWII Veterans Roll of Honor in Duluth, Minn. Not listed on the Roll of Honor is the fact that he is buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten, Holland.
Although I believe that I have pretty decent records on early day Merritt family members from the Duluth, St. Louis County area, I have been able to determine who was the father of Thomas J. Merritt.

I am looking for my grandfather Anders Gustaf BERGSTROM, immigrated to MN in 1869. I think he first located is Isanti county, but the federal census seems to be incomplete at that time in that county. I also looked in the 1870 census in Anoka County because I think Cambridge was county seat at that time. Can you tell me if there is a complete 1870 census for Cambridge and North Branch, Isanti County? I need to actually look at the census. Thank you.

We have not been able to trace him after these dates.We would like to see if anyone may be related to him. He may have remarried and had a family.If anyone knows of a family with this surname, please answer my query and perhaps we can locate his last whereabouts.....Thank you.
