OH gentlemen we have some concrete evidence froma family member that this man went back to Norway... here is what I got in an email today...

"Here is the latest information I know about John Ellingsen. William R. Gallon Jr. (goes by Skipp Gallon) and I Skyped earlier in the week for over an hour. The story that he was told from Helen (Wilma's daughter born in 1918) that John Ellingsen split and went back to Norway. He didn't know the date, just knew he went back because he had a sweetheart back in Norway. I suspect he left around 1915 or 1916. The early part of 1916 was when Wilma was summoned to court and William and my dad became a ward of the court."

Nice guy....don't know if he ever divorced Wilma or if she divorced him, we will look for that here. But it looks like he went back like I thought between 1915 and 1916....
the birthdate could be a lie, but maybe we can find a John Ellingsen coming back into Norway at that time????

Once again, I want to thank all of you for your hard work on this! Sandy
