I am looking for information on a Vivian Leta WILSON married a Winfred Lee Johnson. I don't know Vivian's parents names which I'd like to find out. Winfred's biological father's name is Rennie Bull. I know Vivian died in Fort Dodge around 1967 and is buried at the North Lawn Cemetery. Vivian and Winfred had 5 children: Norman, Fred, Nathan, Tanya, and Annette.
I am new to these lists and have A real puzzle.
My mother told me this tale so please bear with me.
My grandmother PEARL IRENE HOON married FRED HELMER PETERSON 15 Jan 1910 in
Sioux City, Woodbury Co., Iowa.
He died of TB 27 DEC 1917 in Sioux City.
His parents were JOHN PETERSON AND MARY JOHNSON. According to his marriage
license he was born in Lehigh, Webster Co.?, Iowa 24 May 1887.
We searched in Ft. Dodge and Webster for a record of his birth and found NONE.
Mom says that he a couple of brothers, one was named EMIL and she does not
remember the other ones name. She thinks one of them lived in Beresford, SD.
Mom would like to find out more about him and his ancestors.
Not much to go on I know. ANY help would be much appreciated
Mom is sharp as a tack and still spry at 90.
Aloha from not so Sunny Northern California

this list. It is not always safe to pass on information about living
people to others. If by any chance you know of the people the poster is
interested in, the best action would be to tell them Bonnie is looking for
them and let them email her at BONNIEJORDEN(a)aol.com.
And if this should result in a family reunion, do let this list know about it!
