Lancaster All School Reunion

Last night I was at the second organizational meeting for the Lancaster All School Reunion to be held in June of 2015. The exact date in June still has to be confirmed but the preliminary program looks good. The town's new community center is now open and will provide the perfect place for the main activities.

Special attention is being directed to the Registration Booth. A list of the people in attendance will be developed with attention to cell phone records. Classmates and friends…

Charles Monson - Kennedy

These remarks are directed to Edward T. Monson who just joined.  Welcome Ed and Thanks for joining.  It might interest you to know you are the 170th member to join and we are just over four years old.

I have found a Charles Monson in Kennedy, residing there on the 5th of June 1905, during the Census.  I do not know if this is the right Charles Monson you are looking for but this man was born about 1877 in Sweden and thus was 28 years old at this point.

He came to Minnesota when…

My grandparents settled in this area from Sweden. The Peter and Katrina Norlund were my GGrandparents. Brita or Betsy Norlund/Johnson/Bengtson was my Grandmother. Charles Bengtson was my grandfather. Edith Bengtson/Ryan (my mother) was born and grew up there. I'm planning to visit soon to do some research. We want to find the cemeteries, etc. Gladys Elfstrom and I have been communicating. Her grandmother was my great grandfather's sister.

As I can, I will post some pictures.

No problem for the picture. Eventually I will upload some more of my sister, brother and parents... when I have some free time, which seems to be few and far between!

What are the hours for the Historical Society? A cousin from Minneapolis and I would like to visit Kittson county in October. We want to visit some graves and hunt for others. Thanks, Bev

Hi! Thank you so much for posting the pix of the Kolden/Hoversland cem. on the former lot/farm of my grandparents!!! We visited there in 1992 but, it had just rained & was very muddy so we didn't want to hike out into the field to see the tombstone to get a pix. Always wished I had!! Thanks to you I now have it!! I was born in Bronson in 1934 so am 1 up on you!! Marje

Hi Glenn - A CD would be awesome or, if easier, an attachment on an e-mail! Either way I'll be forever grateful!! :-) Kaspara is our grandmother (on our fathers side). There are 3 of us in this particular Kolden branch of the family, left. I'm in contact with sev. cousins who are also Koldens. Most of us originated from the Minn. area. Thanks also for your suggestion abt. a Kolden group - will let you know if I need help!! Thanks again for your photos/time!! Marje

Hi Glenn Thanks for the note. I did receive your comments on Ning. However we have been on vacation the past month and I didn't have an opportunity to share the information with our museum director. I am back home and planning to bring the idea up at our next board meeting. Tom

Glenn, I would be very pleased to acquire a copy of that obituary, as the one I have is not in good shape with creases and difficult to read. Please let me know what cost would occur and I will submit a payment. Thanks for letting me know. Hope your Easter is Blessed.

I still think of Lake Bronson as my home. Please add my name to the list as a proud alumni of Kittson County.
