Hi again Judy,
I hate to impose on you, and please let me know if I am, but I put a post on the "General" board for these obits below and wonder if you could add them to the one above?? They are all in the same family. Catherine and John are the parents and John Emil and Ethel Violet two of the children.
1.) Catherine Ann McMillan-Carlson: b. Sep 1888 Ontario; d. 2 Nov 1973, Nelson, B.C.
2.) John Carlson: b. Oct 1876 Sweden; d. 17 Feb 1946, Nelson, B.C.
3.) Ethel Violet Carlson-McLaughlin: 1904 (actually 1903; d. 1 Aug 1988 Nelson
British Columbia, Canada
The story is that back in 1902 in North Dakota Catherine "Cassie" McMillan (who was 13yrs at the time) ran off with John Carlson a farm hand and much older. A story in the newspaper (that we just found) said she was abducted and there was a warrant out for John Carlson. Ever since then no one in the family knew what happened to Catherine, until just a few days ago. By chance a post I had on a North Dakota board led to a newspaper article (the abduction) that than led me to finding them in Revelstoke and Nelson. Looks like they were happily married. So, now we are trying to find the family to find out who the descendants are and re-establish the family link.
