My GGGrandparents Daniel McDonald and Sarah McPhee sometime prior to 1900 moved to a homestead SW of Page. He hauled the first load of stone that was used in the foundation of the first Catholic church in Page. He farmed 32 years prior to retiring to make his home in Page. They had 10 children. Sarah (I believe died in page) and is buried in Cass County. If you have any historical information it would be great! Children, Daniel, Sarah, Archie, Katge, Annie, Marie, Christine, Jack, William and Allen. Any historical info would be great. Thank you!!

Sophie, 21, and Henry Luke, 31, are listed on the 1880 census with son Charlie 2 in Wheatland, all born in Hanover Germany. Later census show immigration in 1875 from Germany, but the 1885 census does not list them. Where would be the best place to look for the immigtation records and would there be a spelling change of the name?

I'm a descendant of Ulphie Cossette, the first settler at Wild Rice, Cass co. I'm part of a group of decendants of Ulphie's and also of his other brothers who are developing a web site for the Cossettes of Wild Rice. I would be very interested in hearing from anyone interested in the early days of Wild Rice, Stanley township or the Cossette family in general especially if they have any information to add (or to correct) on our web site. We are particularly eager to add some additional family photos, reference materials or family stories to our site. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~cossettewildrice/cossettewildric e/cossettes_wildrice.htm

I am looking for information on Charles L Gilman.
He is on the 1880 census for Cass County with his wife (Mary E) and children. There is a schedule of surviving civil war veterans listing him as house 83, family 88. His son, my grandfather, Louis was born in Fargo 12/20/1887 and another son Edward Dean Gilman 7/21/1889. I know he died before 1900, because his widow is in Minnesota with her surviving children for the 1900 census.
I am trying to find out Charles' parents names. We can access old birth and death records at our courthouses in Minnesota, are those records available in North Dakota and do they exist for 1880-1900?
Thanks for any information you can share.

I am looking for information about Emeline R Steele who lived in Cass county I believe from about 1890 until 1938. She had come to ND from northern NY with her father George S Steele who bought land there but sold it in a few years and moved back East. From what I understand, Emeline worked in the law office of Ball and Watson in Fargo, ND and then became deputy clerk of the United States circuit and district court. She retired about 1938 and returned to Spragueville, NY where she resided until her death in 1952.
