Hello Katharina and welcome

I was afraid I had some how missed your town when I had quickly scanned through all the places and typed them up, but I found you on page four of the list.   Hit " see more" to view the complete list of place names. Amazing how the power of the internet can let us communicate back and forth across the ocean in seconds.  What our grandparents would have given to have such a fantastic method of hearing from family left behind when they ventured forth to a "new land"!   Thanks, Louise

Reddington family...

My great grandparents John and Mary Reddington were early pioneers of Kittson County - so I'm told - and I'm wondering if any descendents reside in/around Hallock/Lancaster? 

They were born approximately 1850 and are buried in the Greenwood Cemetery.
