Hi, Looking for an obituary for a Charles B. Little who passed away August 25, 1910 in Valley City, Barnes County. He is a grandson of my ggg grandfather (Dr. William Bell Little) who I am currently researching. I don't believe Charles was married - in fact I don't believe any of his relatives at that time were even in North Dakota. A bio of his brother (Dr. Wharton Little) mentioned that he was into real estate - date 1909.

Searching to see if Julia A. Getchell is buried anywhere in Barnes County. Julia, along with her husband Charles Getchell, and daughter Ada E. Getchell, are in Barnes, Dakota Territory in 1880. Charles Getchell died and is buried where I live, in Afton, MN. I am unable to find out what happened to his wife Julia, as there is no record of her burial here.

Looking for information from "Coming Home to Rogers North Dakota 1897- 1997". I'm hoping to find reference to William/Willis/Bill BARTHOLOMEW marriage to Sophie Clara Fried in 1904 and homestead near Rogers. Supposedly he took his bride to a homestead, 160 acres somewhat west of Rogers near a creek. I had thought that area had all been homesteaded many years before that date. Something doesn't sound quite right. I think family memories may be slightly off. Their wedding picture was taken by Fisher& Co., photographers from Valley City. Can anyone help? Thank you. Judy

Barnes) arrived in town, did he marry Edith in Dazey, did they divorce in Dazey, did he practice Veterinarian med. in Dazey or any additional information someone may have. Is there a photo of his building where he practiced Vet Med. or a photo of him during that period? Thank You, Pam
