My ancestors arrived (according to the 1882 history of Minnesota) in Camden in 1876. It says that Camden is a small township near york. The 1880 census states they were in York, Fillmore, MN. I cannot trace a Camden near this York. I have found a Camden in Carver county MN, but this is not near York. I am lost and confused! any ideas. Most grateful.

If anybody is researching the LITTLE family that contains this woman I would appreciate it if they would get hold of me.
In going thru some old papers from my mother's estate, I found a scrapbook sent to her by her sister-in-law, my paternal aunt that contained many documents and pictures pertaining to my father and his family and our family. Included in the scrapbook is a 1927 obit for the above named woman but it does not spell out a connection to our family. The only possible connection that I can see is the street address that she died at, which was her son's residence, 1919 Autumn Avenue, which would seem to be on the east side of St. Paul from other references. However, I do not find that street name in present map books and am wondering if it could possibly be the house that I grew up in and the street name was changed at some point.

On behalf of a good friend, Ninni Naes in Umeå, Sweden, we are looking for informations about Ninni’s husbands grandmother Maria Christina Nilsdotter, married Petterson Nes (Naes). She was born Sep 10th 1879 in Vilhelmina, Sweden.
Her parents: Nils Larsson, b 1856 (in Vilhelmina) and Christina Andersdotter, b 1852 (in Norway).
1903 Maria married Ola Petterson Nes (also spelled Olaf Peterson), b Jun 22nd 1850 in Selbu, Norway.
Apr 3rd 1907 they emigrated to USA. They left from Trondheim in Norway to Halifax. Name of the ship between Norway and England was Salomo and the shipping line was Allan (their number in the passenger list in Trondheim is 1222 and 1223).
As far as we believe they settled in Perley, Pennington, Minnesota. That is the town they gave when they departed from Trondheim and in one of very few saved letters from her she mentions Pennington but don’t give much more information on that.
After a couple of years Olaf Peterson died. We don’t know what year he died, sometime between 1907 and 1921. In 1921 Maria remarried a Mr Larson (from Norway). According to a Death Certificate from the state of California (state file number: 71-118715, local registration district and certificate number: 7097-038490; her social security number is 555-12-5117), she had lived in the state of California for 55ys at the time of her death. As she died in 1971 she could have moved to California about 1916, but at least some time between 1916 and 1921. She probably moved directly from Minnesota to the Los Angeles area, maybe from Pennington county, but we don’t know for sure.
Maria Christina Nilsdotter/Nilson – married Peterson/Nes – remarried Larson, was born 10 of Sep 1879 according to the Swedich church records. Her year of birth has in US been changed to 1878 according to the Certificate of death. She died 8 of Sep 1971 in Rosemead, California.
Would it be possible to find Ola Peterson in some cemetery records or death record, and Ola and Maria in some census in Pennington county? We would be very, very glad to find any information about them.
Roland Tidstrom and Ninni Naes.
Please email us both.
