RE: Bloom; Magnussen, Ness, Anderson
You are most welcome! Once that genealogy bug has bitten it doesn't let go!

Here's a few sites you may find helpful:

I've also found just googling names coming up with links too. If you happen to have a local Latter Day Saints Church in you area, see if they have a genealogy library. Typically all such LDS libraries have subscription, plus other premium 'pay for' sites.

Happy hunting! - Liane

Thank you for contacting me about your family connection to Magnusson, Ness, Collins, and Anderson. I placed the information that you gave me on their memorials and have transferred them all to you. I am no relation to any of these families. I am just someone that enjoys genealogy and helping others find their connections, which is why I spent a few weeks at Haven of Rest taking photos and transcribing it all into Find A Grave. Hope you find more relatives via this site! Happy hunting!

RE: Related ?
Hi Paula, I will try to answer your question without totally confusing You. I tie to the Mowris/Baxter family in serveral ways. First, Madge Pickering's father Tom Mowris was my great uncle by marriage. He and my grandmother Elverna Higbee's sister Carrie Higbee were married late in life. Then on grandpa Harry Totten's side: Harry had two brothers, Ralph and Earl Totten. Ralph married Laura Henderson, daughter of Violet Smith Baxter and Earl married Laura's half sister Dessie Avis Baxter. Violet Baxter was the daughter of James Milton Smith. Violet's sister Emma Smith was married to Tom Mowris. So Hans Forster was married to Evelyn Totten, she was the daughter of Ralph Totten and Laura Henderson. Does that make sense or did I totally confuse you. If you want you can e-mail me at and I can try to answer any other questions you have. Jon Totten
