RUSSELL posted by Kathleen Latimer on Monday, September 2, 2002

I am looking for information on my great grandfather, John B RUSSELL. From the 1880 census we have he and his wife Martha M. living in Lake Benton. My great grandmother remarried in 1897 in Stevens Point Wi, I have checked through the obits in Stevens Point and haven't found anything. My grandfather ended up in northern Mn, so I scanned the 1880 census thinking I might find his parents there at some point and I did find them in Lake Benton. I was wondering if there was a obit file that could be scanned . He worked for the railroad as a depot agent. The census has him at 29 yrs and that he was born in France. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thank You, Kathleen Latimer I am looking also for the name of his parents and have hoped they would be on an obituary notice.

SELLECK posted by Kate Feine on Monday, September 2, 2002

I am looking for a Shaokatan Cemetery or Fairview Cemetery supposedly 7 miles South of Hendricks. My Great Great Grandfather Joseph SELLECK is said to be buried there. I need his DOB and DOD. I did not see a listing of either cemetery name on this website where it lists all cemeteries in Lincoln County. 2 or 3 of his sons homesteaded there (John, James and Francis) but he lived with one of them and was not a landowner in the county but died and was buried there. The 3 sons are also buried there. Can you direct me to where I might get this information?
