11-17 Stubfors Peter M. Stubfors was my fathers uncle. Wife was Sabina. Son was Peter M. Stubfors, jr. I can find them on the 1910,1920,1930 census but can't find their dates of death or location. I know they lived in Superior and Peter worked for the railroad. Joanne 07/12/11
11-16 Berg, Olava, Olson I just learned that I had cousins who lived in Superior WI and are buried in Graceland Cemetery but I didn't see their names in the listing for the cemetery. August Berg and Brita Ericka (ricka) Berg they are in lot b5l11 - one died May 17 1931. Erick Olof Olson (born 06/15/1870, died May 4 1943) and his wife Tilley Olson. Gus and Erick were contractors for carpentry and painting. There is a son Clarence A Olson who died while on a steamer. They all were shown to be in the Graceland Cemetery.

They are Erick was half sibling to my great grandmother Brita Helena Olson. Erick's father was Andrew Olson who was married to Marie Olava. Brita Ericka was half sister to Erick but not my grandmother. Different mothers.

Are these family members in the cemetery? Perhaps in the sink hole? Would you know any of these family members. I have been searching for over 15 years to find them. I only knew them when Maria died in 1880 then Andrew in 1884 leaving all the kids orphans. Other siblings to Erick and Brita Ericka were Anders Petter Olson, Isak and Carl (and Carl was the youngest and was 6 when Andrew died). Andrew and Maria I believe are in the old RiceLake cemetery in Isanti County.

Would like to obtain cemetery records and possible contact to the above family. Lots to share on my grandmothers side and letters from Andrew in Swedish to family in Sweden. I found cousins in Sweden who translated them for me; one was about Maries death and another from a friend or neigbor to the family in Sweden about Andrew/Anders death in 1884.

  • Alice
  • Norman

Any information would be helpful. Thanks

11-14 Lundquist I am hoping to view the 1942-43 Cathedral HS yearbooks AND any St. Louis class pictures beginning with about 1933. Although my father, Roy Lundquist (Biz) did not officially graduate from Cathedral, his year of graduation would have been 1945. I believe he attended through his junior year (1944) Barb 07/12/11
11-13 Reynolds, Thomas Seeking information on birth mother of Arthur Vernon REYNOLDS aka Rex J REYNOLDS born February 1912/14/16. Father was Fred Freadom Reynolds. Birth mother was Elizabeth, last name unknown. Fred was married to Delia Thomas at time of Arthur's birth. Arthur was raised in home with Fred and Delia shortly after his birth till Delia's death in 1917. It is unknown if Arthur's true birth name was in fact Arthur Vernon Reynolds. Baptism certificate states he was born in Superior, WI but also states his mother was Delia, which is incorrect. Would appreciate any information on this brick wall. Thanks! Margie 07/12/11
11-12 Gryton, Jewell I am trying to locate someone in Jorid Jewell's family or Justin G. Gryton's family. [FYI - Jorid is one of Justin's children...] We don't have any idea why this is in our possession, but we have a docment signed by Ronald Reagan to Justin G. Gryton that says, "The United States of America honors the memory of Justin G. Gryton, etc.

It is addressed to Ms. Jorid Jewell, Route 1 Box 326, Brule, WI 54820. We found it when we were cleaning out our garage.

Since he is up in age he is probably no longer living which is a shame he never received this. [According to the SSDI, Justin Gryton died 25 Apr 1988. Jorid R Jewell is listed as having died 01 Oct 2001.]

Can you help us with this?
