Looking for info about my grandfather, Ira BULLIS and his fourth wife, Jessie JANSEN. Ira moved to Fredonia, Logan County, ND some time between 1927 and 1940. Jessie lived in Edgeley. They were married in Lamoure on May 31, 1940, at the Methodist Church by Pastor Smith.
My grandfather had previously lived in Quinn, Pennington County, SD, where he had a farm, taught school, and carried the mail.
Ira BULLIS died at age 67 in the North Dakota State Hospital, Jamestown, on September 4, 1946. Jessie is reported to have lived for several more years.
Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Am searching for any information on Henry (Heinrich) SCHMIDT from Napoleon, North Dakota. Know nothing about his family background. Know that he married Mary Eve GLATT about 1915-16. Henry was buying eggs and cream in Emmons County when they first met. They had their first daughter in April, 1917; born at Anamoose, N.D. Henry and Mary Eve had three daughters and one son; Mary Eve died during childbirth of her son about 1922-23. Don't know if they were living in Anamoose or Napoleon when she died.

After her death, the children were placed in an orphanage for awhile, then they moved about five times to foster homes and finally they were "farmed out". The oldest was taken in by her uncle (her mother's brother), Tony GLATT and Agatha Materi GLATT who farmed in Emmons County. Sometime after the death of his wife, Henry moved to Washington state (I believe to Seattle) where he later died destitute. Word has it that he died as a result of his drinking. I need to connect Henry to his parents and other relatives and his wife, Mary Eve, to her parents and relatives. If anyone has any information about these two and their families and wishes to share I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Jim

My grandmother, Myrtle Clitty, was a public school teacher in Logan County just after she graduated from normal school. Since she was born in 1903, I figure she would have been teaching in Logan County probably around 1921-1923. At one time I saw her contract with the county, but recently it has been misplaced. I am taking a trip out to N.D. this weekend and would like to visit the school where she taught if it still stands. Would anyone have any information that could help me? I need to know asap of course as I am leaving Thur. morning. Appreciate any help.
