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
Thanks for any information you can share.
