Dear List Members:
I have a picture marked "Gypsum Mine" [Plymouth Gypsum Mines in Fort Dodge,
Iowa]. In my grandmother's handwriting, she has listed : Old John Pride,
Kolb, Hugo Johnson, ?, John Heller, Grandpa [C.J.] Engles, Oscar Johnson,
Pete Johnson, Jack Johnson, Hugo -Pete Haglund, Richard Holm, Eddie Bockert
[?spelling], Ed Stanton, Billy Hoagland, William Heller, Walt Fredricks,
Andrew Peterson, Bill Nobel, Chris Heller, ____ Harvey, Tomm Klinston, Mic
Jones, Bill Johnson, Bessie Minton, Pete Hagland, Joe Resheck. Note cable
cars in rear. Mine timber cuttings foreground.
The picture would have been taken pre 1911 [my great-grandfather died at a
result of a dynamite explosion.
It is difficult to make out the people, but still possible. If anyone is
interested in a copy of the picture, I believe I have scanned it.
I was reading your posting and the name Hadlund caught my attention. Out of
curiosity, I looked up Hadlund in the Webster County telephone book. There
are no Hadlunds listed but there are seven  Haglunds listed throughout
Webster. There are multiple Petersons.

A couple of weeks ago, a kind person from the Sweden mailing list sent me a
letter stating that the 1870 Iowa Census had a listing for a Hadlund family
who was living in Webster County at that time. There were no first names
given, just initials:
JM, 46 born in Sweden. He was a farmer;
AC, 43, also born in Sweden;
M, 18, b. Illinois;
E, 14, b. Iowa;
J, 11, b. Iowa;
I, 9, b. Iowa;
A, 2, b. Iowa.
I was wondering if any members of the family still live in the area. My
great-great grandparents are John Elison Hadlund and Mary Katherine Peterson.
