MACKINSTER CANFIELD BRUCE
Susan L. Van Horn
Date: August 9, 2006
I am seeking information concerning Duraine Dewey MAKINSTER and his son, Dewey and his wife, Eliz.
Their siblings: Major, Surviva C., Ida Medora and Josephine.
When my grandmother, Blanche died, my mother received a letter
from a woman named Ida, who was an aunt to my grandmother. I do not know what her last name was!
(My grandmother was Josephine's daughter) Blanche BRUCE was her name and she is a well-known artist.
I would be so happy to have any information of the MCKINSTER family and of dates, etc. for our family.
Josephine married Henry Obediah CANFIELD and they had two sons,
Arthur Allan and B. Lee and two daughters, Harriette whose married name was DeKAY and my grandmother,
Blanche CANFIELD BRUCE.
I believe that Dewey Dwayne (Duane) MAKINSTER had a farm in Lidgerwood, ND sometime between 1860 and 1910.
He was born in Wisconsin on January 1852 according to the 1900 census for ND.
He was the son of Dewey (b. 2/1817 in NY) and Eliza (b. 4/1827 in NY) MAKINSTER.
His siblings per the 1860 MN, Waseca County (listed as McKINSTER) census and the 1870 MN, Foster, in Faribault County
(listed as McQUESTEN) census are Major, Surviva C., Ida Medora and Josephine.
I do know that Josephine and Henry O. CANFIELD lived in Wells, MN for awhile and also in Waseca County, but
do not know the name of the city. They moved to Lacomb, Oregon and also again to Lebanon, Oregon.
Please help me! I am elderly, not expected to live much longer due to poor health, and I would be so happy
to add any information to our family tree for our grandchildren.
MORROW FORD UNDERWOOD
Date: May 09, 2006
I am looking for any information in the town history on the Joseph A Morrow family and the Eva Ford family-they were both found in the 1900 Lidgerwood Census.
Joseph A. Morrow was in the lumber business.
Eva Underwood Ford was a recent widow of W.F. Ford, who died in Sargent County in 1989. By 1910 she left Lidgerwood and moved to Mitchell, SD.

Knut Asleson Grøthe, born in Hemsedal, Norway on May 2, 1858---died September 29, 1900 in America.
What we are trying to find out is where and how he died (killed by a horse?), and where he is buried.
He was married to Astrid Larsdatter Dølahaugen, (1893), who was born June 21, 1872 and died April 18, 1963.
She returned to Norway with the two children Asle & Lars after her husband's death and she is buried in Norway.
They also had a third child Knut who was born in 1901 and died in 1901.
The Ellis Island passenger manifest read he was enroute to "Knut Hovrud" in Sandon?, ND.
In the 1900 Census, I found Kent Hoverud in Freeman Township, Richland County, North Dakota.
When I looked at the Census it looks like Knut not Kent to me. Came 1890 & Anna 1891.
NAME: Haavrud, Knud Evensen
TWP:134 N O52
SECTION: W 012
CASETYPE: PA 9559
DOCID DATE: 04/12/1900
If Knut Aslesen Grothe was traveling to this Knut Hovrud then it seems
that he may have gone to Freeman Township, Richland County, North Dakota.
In Viking Township, Richland County, in the Nordmanna Cemetery is an
Annie "Haverud" born March 6, 1869, died August 3, 1904.
It appears from the 1910 Census that Knut remarried after Annie/Anna died,
to a Bertha, who is in 1910 Census living in Walcott Township and Knut has died.
Bertha is living with Alpha Eline, 14 (a child of Knut & Anna) and Knut
and Bertha's children:
Clara G. age 4, Eddie age 2, Burnette C. about 1.
Eddie was born on 1 Sep 1907 and died in January 1973 in Walcott, Richland Co, ND according to the SSDI.
Does anyone have any information on Knut Aslesen Grothe or Knut Hoverud
