Hi again Tony,
I have gone over the notes that I collected yesterday when I was at the courthouse. I believe the following will be of interest to you.
First, I found the delayed birth record on file for Joseph Norman MUNGER (Births - Vol. 15, page 374). It was dated 20 Feb 1947 and states that Joseph, male, white, was born on 25 Dec 1898 to Albert Lee and Allie (DYER) MUNGER. Two items of proof were presented, those being:
1 - Affidavit of Jens Jorgenson of Hayward stating that he was "well acquainted with the family and a distant relative." His birth year as 1876. This affidavit was notorized on 29 Mar 1947.
2 - Bible record - A notarized copy of the family bible record in custody of Mrs. Allie MORRISON of Glenwood City WI, notarized on 31 Mar 1947. It also states that the entry was made in 1890 (??? - that doesn't seem to line up with Joseph's birth.)
The record was signed by David Hope, St. Croix Co. Register of Deeds, filed 02 Apr 1947
Now, after seeing the 1910 census record that I put on the message board this morning, it appears that Joseph's mother, Allie, may have been married a third time - this time to a Morrison.
I also checked the other MUNGER births that took place in Sawyer Co., but none of them have Albert and Allie as the parents. So it appears that Joseph was their only child.
I then looked for marriage records and found Albert and Allis' record. Marriage - Vol. 1, page 336 states this:
MUNGER, Albert, son of Joseph and Isibell MUNGER, farmer, born at Almsted Co., MN, residing in Hayward, married DYER, Allis, daughter of John and Alma DYER on 29 Jan 1898 at Hayward. Witnesses were Chas. Hulbord & Lee M. Reby.
This marriage record verifies that Albert's father was Joseph. Did you see the biography that I put on this message board for Joseph yesterday? It is located here - http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=message&r=rw&p...
As promised, I looked at the Hayward Greenwood Cemetery records again to see if I could find Allie and her second husband, Andrew WILLIAMSON, but there is no listing under those names. I also checked under the MORRISON surname, but did not find anything listed for that name either. You may have to check in the St. Croix Co. area for Allie, as that appears to be the last known area that she was found in 1947.
This is all that I could find. Wish I had some answers on whatever happened to Albert, but I've had no luck in finding him, unless he is one of the Albert's that I found in the 1910 census in other areas of the country and listed on this message board in response to your request for info from that census. I was not able to check each Albert that was listed in the census.
Hope the above info hasn't confused you too much. It does seem to be quite a puzzle. I'm hoping that you have other data that will help you to sort through this new info and will be able to make sense of it all. Good luck with your research.
