According to the homestead papers of my Great Grandmother, she was living in
Evanston ND at the time she filed. We have finally located information about
this "place", that is no longer incorporated nor listed in any of the
gazetteers / atlases we consulted. Thought we would share this with the list.
Best of luck,

Mr. & Mrs W H B Davis operated a post office on their farm southwest of
Starkweather as a service to the people of the area. This post office was
called Evanston. When the farmer's railroad was completed as far as
Starkweather in 1902, Mr Davis thought the postoffice should be located
there. The Federal Postal Authorities decided the relocated post office
should be given a new name because Evanston was too common. They named it
Starkweather , after Jim Starkweather the land agent employed by the Great
Northern Railroad in charge of getting new settlers into this area.

I am searching for descendents of Carl F. Schultz, born in Germany in 1839, died in Leeds, ND in 1907. Some of his children settled in Ramsey Co. His sons were: John O. Schultz (b. 1872) Leeds, Herman J. Schultz (b. 1868) Leeds, Otto (Joseph) Schultz (b. 1876) -- Hurricane Lake, later Coulee Township, Ramsey Co., William A. Schultz (b,. 1880) -- Penn, and daughters Minna Dimm (b. 1878) and Mary Elizabeth (Lizzie) Dingman (b. 1870). His daughters moved to other areas, but it seems the sons stayed in the area.
We have a family picture that seems to be of Otto (Joseph) Schultz's family circa 1915 and would like to find anyone who could point us to living descendents.
