I have a letter from Sweden asking for help.
Our friend wanted us to help identify people in old letters. One of these letters was written in Lindford Township, Koochiching County, MN. on Oct 24, 1907. There was family in Kooch Co.and Wheaton,MN. then, but I have not found such a story in Kooch. Co.
She told a terrible story: " Myrback Anders' sister Greta has murdered three of her children out in the popato field. She took a hammer and hit them in their heads and then cut them into pieces. When her husband came home she told him what she had done. Then he started to cry. She said it was no reason to cry because she had sacrificed her children to God."
Would there be any old papers from that date, or court house records? Thank you for any help you may have for us.
