Looking for the ancestors of Earl Belgium (aka Ed on SSI) Blum. He was born 29 Feb, 1888 Radcliffe, Sherman Twp, Hardin Co, IA. He lived his life in Spirit Lake Ia and died 30 April 1966. Information I have is that his folks were named Belgium Blum and Mabel Coots but I have NO further information and don't know where to look.
Earl was married to Loretta Mae Harkness of Sutherland IA 4 Nov 1909.
They had the following children:
Jess Kenneth "Jack" 23 July 1911-20 Jan 1979
Helen (Married to Charles "Chuck" O'Farrell) b: 16 Aug 1913
Fern A (Alice) 12 Oct 1915- 10 Sept 1982 (Married to Fay Fronk of Spirit Lake 9 Sept 1934)
David Martin ( 10 April 1917-14 April 1984)
Wayne Ervin (27 July 1920-26 Oct 1966) (married to Katy (sp?) Jusola)
Bernice Albertice 18 Oct 1923-27 Oct 1981 (married to George Lampianen)
Lee Leroy 12 Dec 1925- April 1996
Earl Jr. 07-May 1929- 23 Nov 1983 (married LaVonne ?)
I only write the family names to maybe jog memories of the family since many grew up in the area and some have even stayed around. I spent much of my childhood visiting my grandmother Fern A Blum Fronk's family and am now trying to fit the pieces together.
Am looking for any information on H.N. (Nels?) Fronk and his wife, Samantha (nee Stoughton) buried in unmarked graves in a Superior cemetary.
HN was born in Juanita County, PA in 1836. Moved to Henry County IL by 1850. Married Samantha 1856 in Henry County, IL.
Their children were:
Pearl (1 Dec 1882- 9 Sept 1970) married to Anna Emily Bradburn in 1910. Divorced and as far as I know, never remarried.
Nora (b: 19 Feb 1868)
Bert (1870 0r 72)
Elmer (b: 13 Feb 1874)
Elsie (b: 29 Feb 1876)
Blanche (b: 14 March 1880)
Henry E (1884-1972)
Fredrick H (1886-1970)
By 1875 they lived in Annawan Twp, Henry Co, IL and in 1879, I found them at Section 27, Minburn, Washington Twp, Dallas Co, IA.
Pearl was my great grandfather and lived many years across from the Fish Hatchery where my grandfather, Fay Fronk, worked for many years. Pearl died at the Spirit Lake nursing home. Fay died in Sioux City but is buried in Spirit Lake with his wife, Fern A (nee Blum).
If anyone is connected, please email me!! I have hit a brick wall looking for "Nels" and "Samantha" and don't know where else to look for information! Is there a name/contact info for the cemetary in Superior?
I'm new to this mailing list, but I have a special request.
I'm trying to locate where & when my Aunt passed away for my Mom (her
sister), in hopes of finding & contacting remaining living members of the
family. My Mom would really like to get in touch with any children (her
nephews & nieces) of her sister.
This is the only information that we have on my Mom's sister:
born: 24 Feb 1934
died: 8 Jan 1999
residence: Spirit Lake, Dickinson County, Iowa.
If anyone could possibly locate an Obituary on my Aunt Mary Lundgren, it
would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

I am searching for information on my Great-Grandmother Etta Meints. She
settled in Dickinson County after moving from Ackley Town, Hardin County,
sometime after the 1910 census was taken. I have located her on the 1910
census on Sheet 12-A, Line 28. She entered the USA in about 1890. I assume
she was a widow with 3 children, Jennie, Neal, and John, when she entered
the USA. My Great-Grandfather Philipp Janssen Meints died in Germany prior
to her departure to the USA.
