My grandfather, Joseph Marcus Kolle homesteaded in 1913 on the east shore of Sullivan Lake, Alberta. Postcards from that time came from Lake Thelma and Sullivan Lake. According to my mom he used to tell tales of being a "bouncer"while he was up in that area.
He moved back to Minnesota when his father became ill, and took over his father's farm and married my grandmother, a schoolteacher.My dad was born and raised on that farm in MN. I would love to see if there are photos or newspapers referring to my grandfather from that time.
