Marjie Morgenthaler morgenthalerm@prodigy.net Sat, 20 Feb 1999 23:45:58

My name is Marjie Morgenthaler and I live in central California. All my mother's relatives came from Sweden and settled in Rockford. My mother was the only one to leave and that is why I live in California. I am trying to find out as much information on my family as I can as she never went back so I never got to know anyone except my aunt. I am researching the following people: My g-grandmother Maria Larson lived in Rockford until her death in 1934. Her children were Andrew Lundquist (died 2⁄12⁄1942, Augusta Larson (died Feb.28,1920), Anna Lundquist(?) and Hannah Lundquist (returned to Sweden sometime after 1930). Augusta's children were Esther Miller (My mother) Anna Miller Zimmerman (Owned the Charles Street Hardware)and George Miller ( Owned Miller Transportation) If anyone knows anything about any of these people I would love to hear from you. Marjie

I am searching for info on my great-grandfather's family. He was Frank Austin LANCASTER (b. Nov. 1862, Shirland, IL). He grew up in Winnebago County, IL. According to family stories, he was "adopted" by Sarah (HYDE) and Thomas LANCASTER. Supposedly, AUSTIN was the surname of his birth mother. Would love to find his birth mother's line too, if anyone knows of a woman in their family history who gave up her baby about that time. Also looking for info on Hyde and Lancaster. Thanks, Becky Wilson
