Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived near Trinidad, California since 1970. Trinidad is on the Pacific Coast about 60 miles south of Oregon. I was born in Owen, Wisconsin and lived in Eau Claire, Wisconsin until the age of four when my family moved to San Diego, California.

I started researching my relatives via the internet in early 2010. My father's grandparents and parents came to this country from Norway and settled in North Dakota and my mother's grandparents arrived here from Norway and settled in Wisconsin.

Ron Rosenberg introduced me to Find A Grave. I "met" Ron on the internet while researching the Norseville School near Strum, Wisconsin, which my mother attended and which led me to discover a great amount of family history. Thank you Ron.

Jim Seidelman has been my mentor for all things Find A Grave. Thank you Jim for all of your help and for all of your transfers of family memorials.

The main family names are: Thompson, Haugen, Nestande, Nelson and Amundson.

Thora Haugen Johnson, possible relation?
Hi Susan. Welcome to Find A Grave. Jim has been such a help to me as well! I am very interested in Strum, WI families. I recently started trying to find parents for a Thora Haugen Johnson. I know she was born in Norway about 1886. In 1910 she lived on Tobias Olson farm as a servant and so did an Oke Haugen born about 1887. I'm wondering if she may be a sibling of his? Maybe she is Mary 1886? Well. Maybe not, but wanted to ask you in case you have seen the name.mmthira marries Harold Johnson and they are parents of Melvin T Johnson who marries my ancestor Finstad. Just wanted to check if rings any bell for you now or in the future. Happy ancestor hunting. Cyndi

Thank you, Susan, for sponsoring Chad. It always makes the memorial look nice without any ads on them. It was a very nice thing to do.

Gruhlke Cemetery
If you get to Osseo, visit the Osseo Public Library. I've made a photo book and charts of the cemetery, just outside of Osseo enroute to Fairchild.
I probably should send you a disk of the book and information. Let me know if you're interested. seidelman@aol.com
My sister is Susan Feltes in Osseo...

RE: Jim and Ethel Johnson
Glad I was able to help starting the linking of this huge family. I'm always happy when someone finds a listing I've made and I can turn it over to them. God Bless.
