I'm looking for information about my great grandparents. My grandfather was Earl Douglas born a foundling in Duluth MN and grew up in Minong, WI. Served WWI and married Myrtle Zehren in Wilkin County, MN. They lived in Breckenridge, MN and had 3 children: Maxine Vera, Glee Joyce, and James. Glee is my grandmother. Michael Douglas, born to Glee (grandfather unknown) is my father born in 1952.
My father passed away in 2011. In all the years, he never spoke about his biological family and it's always been a mystery to me. It's only been several months since I've started looking for family members, descendants of Augusta Zehren. I'm wondering if there are people out there who know anything about my family or a good start to figuring this out. I know my father went through some abandonment issues. Earl, Maxine, and James all died at a young age. I think that has something to do with my grandmother becoming institutionalized and separated from my father. I wish I don't know how to get answers. Thank you! Nate Douglas
