While researching my family roots, I have accessed the 1900 US census, which lists my great grandfather, Albert OHM, and his family as living in "Garfield" township or division of Richland county. I can find no Garfield township listed elsewhere, and am curious if it was an area that may have had it's name changed. While researching the 1920 census, I find no such township. I believe my great grandparents farmed somewhere near Barney, but have to locate their names in the 1920 census. Any help is greatly appreciated.
thank you Paul J. Ohm

I am looking for three answers:
1. Where is Williams, ND or Buford, Williams, ND?
2. Where does a person find a marriage certificate for 1871 for Eli JARVIS and Ermine JARVIS?
3. Does anyone have any information on Eli JARVIS or his brother Steven (married to Philena) or his parents F. Jarvis and Elizabeth JARVIS? They were in the Richland, Dakota Territory in 1880, township 134. In 1885 Eli and his wife were in Fort Buford, ND. Did Steven and F. JARVIS stay in Richland?
Thank you, Wm Jarvis
HAGEN LARSON LARSEN SATER SAETHER
Date: 5 Feb 2002
I am trying to locate and find information about my grandmother's mother. Gunhild HAGEN was born in Ft. Abercrombie, ND on April 13, 1890. Her Grandfather was Gens HAGEN and her father was Halvor HAGEN.
They had come to ND from Trondheim, Norway, around 1843. Gunild's mother died when she was about 2 years old, around 1892. She was raised by Ole and Marie(Mary) SATER or SATHER, as their adopted daughter, in Abercrombie. Her father had remarried (Amy WOODS) and they had three children, Allen, Horace and Naomi. We think that Gunhild HAGEN's mother's name was Caroline LARSON or LARSEN.
She married Halvor HAGEN around 1887 in Richland County, ND. I want to find out about Gunhild's mother's family.

My great grandmother was Ella E. STENSRUD buried in the Nordmanna Cem. in Richland Co. She was married to a Christian ANDERSON. As I understand it, when he went to get a load of lumber he never returned and she took back her maiden name. I think her father was Evan STENSRUD and Margaret but do not have any proof or info on them. My grandfather was Albert STENSRUD married to Clara FATLAND. from the Walcott Colfax area. Anyone have information on this family? Thanks.

I have found the 1920 census records with Charles KEPHART & his family, including his mother, Letticia KEPHART, living in Grant twp. Could someone up there search for her husband's (Alfred KEPHART) burial in one of the township cemeteries? We have them living in Monroe County Ia up to 1912, but by the 1915 census, they have disappeared from Iowa. We have just recently found Letticia as a widow, living with son Charles and family. At this point we can only assume that Alfred KEPHART is buried in your area. Could/Would some kind soul help us out by searching thru your county cemetery records for him?
Thank you very much. - Shirley Fitchett

Theodore and Julia BIRNBAUM are found on the 1900 and 1910 Richland County census. Julia is my great uncle, Matt MAUER, godmother. Matt and his sister, Maggie, were living with the BIRNBAUM's on census day, June, 1900. The census shows that Matt and Maggie are the niece and nephew of the BIRNBAUMs. Matt and Maggie's mother, Rosa Digula (Digulla?) died sometime between 1896 and 1900. My guess is that she was a sister to Julia BIRNBAUM. The BIRNBAUMs had children--John, Michael, Theodore, Joseph, Mathilda and Clara. Any information concerning the BIRNBAUM family, especially Julia, would be most appreciated!
BROWN BRONSON MASTERS
Date: 18 May 2002
I seek information on ways to find Ingeberg, maiden name of BROWN (possibily originally spelled BRONSON, probably born in Norway in 1850's. I do not know her married name. She lived in Wahpeton between 1885 and 1910 and had at least one son who may have moved to Bellingham, WA after 1900.
She may have been married in North Dakota but possibly in Minnesota. She had a sister Betty Brown who married John MASTERS in Minnesota and who lived in Little Falls, Morrison County Minnesota but moved to Orange County, California by 1900. I have several photographs of Ingeberg and her children dating from 1880-1910 simply labeled with the name Ingeberg and the name of the photographer in Wahpeton. I appreciate any assistance in tracing Ingeborg, including sharing photographs for identification purposes.

Her name was Nell Josephine CAREY. Her mother Rosalie (HANZLIK) CAREY died in 1913 at Lidgerwood.
I would appreciate any assistance you could give me in my endeavor to locate information regarding my ancestors. Thank you very much.

In the 1900 Federal Census of Brandenburg TWP, Richland County, ND, I found two families living next to each other as follows:

I am trying to find the burial place of my GGrandfather Peter VICK (may be listed as Hans Peter VICK). My uncle told me he is buried in Richland County in a cemetary next to a (Lutheran ?) church that burned down and was not rebuilt. My GGrandfather and family are shown in the 1900 Census in Garfield Township, Richland County. He died in July, 1908. ND does not have a death certificate for him.
Also, I found my GGrandfather Peter VICK and family in the 1900 Census here at this website, but the photocopy, 140-01b.gif is not complete. It cuts off the lower part of the page right in the middle of the family. Is there a way I can get a photocopy of that page, so I could see all nine members of the family?

I am desperately trying to find someone in your county who would be willing to do me a big favor. I am looking for my Gt Grandfather Alfred KEPHART. In 1912, we found him and his wife Letticia living in Monroe County, Iowa. In the 1920 Richland County census, we find Letticia living, as a widow, with son Charles, Jr. and family. We're pretty certain that they had no money for a gravestone so that finding anything in a cemetery record will be next to impossible. As a last resort, I would like to know if he is listed in the county death records from the Court House. Wen have exhausted all other search areas. Please, won't someone there help me out. Thank you very much for any information, or help. Sincerely, Shirley Fitchett

We are late in the process of determining my wife, Mary Lou's family tree on her mother's side. The TREZIOK family lived on a farm near Hankinson, ND prior to about 1920 when they moved to a farm near Hayward, WI. The children in the family were Emma, Elsie, Herman, Louise, Johanna (Freda), Erna, and Walter (Wally). Mary Lou's mother, Johanna, was born in 1916, most likely on the ND farm.
Any information about the TREZIOKs will be appreciated.

Seeking the death date for Michael ZANZINGER, husband of Emma ZANZINGER. He is listed in the 1910 US census for Summit Township, Wahpeton, Richland County with his wife and children. However, the 1920 census shows his wife, Emma, as head of household. Given his age in 1910 (56) and the fact that he farmed in Richland County steadily from about 1890 onward, I believe that he died between 1910 and 1920 in Richland County. Would appreciate any leads. Thank you!

Seeking information on Caroline ZANZINGER, born October 1893 at Wahpeton, Summit Township, Richland County.

She reportedly married a man named KEATING, but no databases provide "hits" on Caroline KEATING.
Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!
