I am looking for informaion on my great grandmother Meta Vergie Madison. She was born on Jan. 18 1905 in Cicero, Wisconsin. He brothers name was Walter. He father was Nels Madison and I have no idea about her mothers name. Before her mother married Nels she was married to a Charlie Tank. She also had three half siblings, Amelia, Gus, and Herman Tank. In 1925 she married Oscar Gagnow. If you have any information please send it to me.

Hi Casey,

Meta Vergie Madison's mother's first name was Matilda. I don't know her last name.

I suggest you try looking in Shawano County for the marriage record of Nels and Matilda, as they were living in Maple Grove, Shawano County, in the 1910 census. I would look under the spellings of Madison, Madson, Matson, and Matteson for Nels' last name.

Hope this helps,

Ruth Pokorny

Ruth-

Thank you for the information. It was been a big help. I live in Shawano so I will be able to look in the records for Nels and Matilda. I was talking to my grandma and she was wondering how you are related to the family. Also, I was wondering if you have any photos of Nels or Matilda or any other members of the family. Plus, do you have any other information on the family you could share. You can email me at caseyarrowood77@hotmail.com
Thanks-
Casey
