Thank you for looking up the Pinnerud's for me I will go from there I' m not sure about the Olson's and Simmonson's. See I have only been doing this for about 2 years when my Great Uncle past away and I found out that not much information was to be had on my father's side. The reason I am looking in Pierce County is that is where my Great Grandfather Alvin Monness was born and I believe that is where John Monness changed the last name.
I also have alot of relatives that live or lived in Chippewa County. Some are Pinnerud's, but most of them Schmock's or Novak's. The Schmock' s and the Novak's came from Germany and Prussia. I have found quite abit of info on them thanks to posting on the web. I am stuck when I go to search in Germany and was Prussia. Do you know anything about finding the info in those countries?
I am also looking for Nerison's they also came from Norway, but at this point am unsure of where. Some of the names I do have are Neri Nerison, Gunhild Nerison and they lived in the Sand Creek area of Dunn County.
I appreciate greatly all the help that you have given me, it is really exciting to me.
I will try to see if I find any of those that you are looking for.
Also the only thing I know about Stanley is that Karen was buried there.
Thank you once again for you all your great help.
