Esie Nesset was my grandmother Ragna Nesset's sister, and Esie's husband Christ E. Hagen was my grandfather Chris M. Hagen's (Ragna's husband) first cousin. So you and I are related from two branches. I have Esie's obituary on my genealogy website www.noicedebugger.com/chris
. I also have a scan of Elmer Hagen's obituary if you don't already have a copy. It is a shame that I wasn't able to contact you before the Nesset family reunion that we held in Black River Falls in August, 2005.
