My name is Chris Carlson, I came upon this message when I was searching for any information about my mother's grandmother's family. I have very little information on my mother's mother's side of the family, since she died when my mother was quite young. From the information (question) you posted here, I am guessing that your grandmother (Lillian) and my mother's grandmother (Adele) were sisters. I would like to get in contact with you and see if you can fill me in on any information you may have about the family history and geneology. My email address is: c_carlson at gmx dot com
PS: I was wondering if you did get a copy of the picture of the farmstead?
