Hi Jean: I have a little more information regarding the Stanleys you are searching for. We have corresponded
before but I lost your email address. Last summer we visited Hixton, Wisc. ... and also I ran across spelling of Misbe
and where.

My information says that John W BORDEN came to Crow Wing county in 1885 and with the help of his cousin James located on a homestead in what is now Center twp. (At that time, this area was part of Cass County.) I have not yet tried to find an 1885 census for Cass County but I did find John W and his family in the 1905 twp 135-27 ED 22 (possibly 221) The "g" in Crow Wing co, MN. *may* be hiding a "1" in the ED. I photocopied the page but I REALLY wish I had access to a transcribed version because some of the names I can't even make guesses at. I haven't heard of any ties to Long Lake but bits and pieces slowly come together. Was this a BORDEN family? Do you have any first names?

I would be very interested in learning when this happened. I assume it was in Crow Wing co, MN. We had a number of Borden relatives in the area so this would be of special interest to me.

I may have been mistaken. The names seem to be Borders or Bordens.

I message I sent a few minutes ago did not send.

So will repeat it.

I have a picture of a collapsed bridge. It was built about 1916 over a narrows in Long Lake. It went down in 1917 due to the ice break-up.

Prior to that time people would ford this narrows in wagons and even cars. I know it was a harrowing trip because my Grandmother told of going over it in 1916 in a car.

On the back of the picture I have seen is writen, "The Borders (Borden)Family drowned at this crossing while trying to ford, in 1900. Missed the shallows in the dark and the storm . The wagon box floated and the baby was found alive in it."

I did search the death notices for that time frame (before and after) at the Crow wing County Court House and didn't find the deaths of any multiple family members. Of any name.

This narrows can be seen from highway #371 going north from Brainerd to Nisswa. Land is not visable but the you can tell where it would have been between two points of land in Long Lake. It is very shallow yet today.

In the 1900 census there is record of Joel and Liddie Borders who live in the area of the narrows.

Hope I haven't just confused your issue.

Good luck.

I'm not sure if the "(Borden)" was intended to be Liddie's maiden name or another possibility if not BORDERS. Since you found the BORDERS in the 1900 census, we may have to check marriage records to see if Joel BORDERS married a Liddie BORDEN if it does appear to be a maiden name. Do you still have the census information for Liddie? Age birthplace, parents born where? If we are looking for any BORDEN ties, that informaion would be useful in narrowing the search.
