Bio and Links
I have been researching my family tree for about 25 years. My family names include: Dawson, Downey, Preston, Turner, Maxwell, Thorson, Hanson. I am also creating/maintaining memorials for my husband's family and my granddaughter's family. If you see a memorial of a direct ancestor and would like to maintain it, just let me know.

Thanks, Pat for catching this. Don't know how I missed it. Links to parents are now done.

I try to maintain the Auburn Cemeteries if at all possible. As a historian, if any information comes to light, I'm made aware right away. I have transferred this memorial to your care.

Ione Thorson wife of Earl Douglas Thorson
Hi Pat,

I have family's handwritten genealogy records indicating Ione's maiden name as Reinertsen and also as Risdahl.

When I met her briefly in 2011 she told me we were related on both my grandfather's side (Hanson) and grandmother's side. There are both Risdahls and Reinertsens on my grandmother's side.

What is Ione's actual maiden name please?

Hi again.
Pat, I knew your name was familiar to me. I went hunting in My Family Tree sources and found your name and email address. You and I have apparently traded info before.

Perhaps you remembered and were just giving me a hint in that direction when you told me Rudolph and your Dad were cousins.

I will email you separately with my line. I'd be glad to give you any information I have been able to find.

RE: Rudolph Hanson 76110177
Hi Pat,

Rudolph is also my grandfather's first cousin! Rudolph was a son of Bastian & Sophia Hanson while my grandfather, Raymond was a son of Carl Martin & Laura Hanson. Somewhere I have a copy of the directory you mentioned. Helga is my Raymond's sister.

I will leave "baby" Rudolph without a middle name. I'm sure one of us would have caught that info if it was in the directory.

Thanks for the info,
Laura V

Rudolph Hanson 76110177
Hi Pat,

There were two Rudolph Hansons for this family. When the baby died they apparently used the same name for the next boy born (as was common). Do you know if they both had Bernard for a middle name?

Sent, ANY more, please let me know, I have boxes of OLD papers my Gram kept, and are going thru, any info I find about them, I will add/and or send to is SO much fun to connect dots, and find little things that bring them closer to us!

I generally take obits and re-word enough to avoid copyright issues. Don't remember from where this came. I am not related so I'll transfer her to you. Be well.
