Hi there, I'm trying to trace the family of Pfc Carl A johnson, who died in Naples,Italy in 1945, following a swimming accident. Carl was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ludvig Johnson of Goodridge. He had 4 sisters and 2 brothers, Mrs Albert Langwost of Chicago, Mrs. Joseph Knutz or Kuntz? of Jersey city,NY, Mrs. Mike Quirk of Goodridge? Mrs Paul Omlid of Goodridge, Leonard and Bennie(brothers).Carls grandfather was Mr B Johnson and his grandmother was Mrs A Jorde of Goodridge. Carl was my Great Aunt Rhodas fiancee, they met when he was stationed in Northern Ireland during the war.But he unfortunitaly lost his life while awaiting discharge from service. He was awaitng transportation home when the accident occured.
My Aunt wrote to Carls sister, Hazel, up until her death in the 1990's. I am unsure of Hazels surname or where she lives, although my Aunt mentioned Thief River Falls alot and Hazels husband Ernie?
If any of this rings any bells, I would appreciate any info to help in my search.
Many thanks, Paula.
