If your lines are unfamiliar to me, I will be contacting you asking for some evidence that the ancestors were in Pierce County at a given point in time. Non-Pierce queries will be periodically removed.

This is in a history book from 1936:
"John HILLER was born in Norway and emigrated to the United States. When he came to Pierce County and settled near Barton in 1886, he came from Traill County, North Dakota. He farmed here only a short time before he died, leaving a widow and six children, two sons and four daughters; Sven, who moved away from here and died some years later; Hans, residing here at present; Julie was married to Thomas OKSENDAHL and died some years ago; Ragna is also dead. She was Mrs. George HURD; Olava became Mrs. Hildus HILLER and lives in Canada; Emma, now Mrs. Anton WESTGARD, lives near Barton and is farming. Mrs. Randina HILLER survived her husband and farmed for many years after he died. She also died near Barton many years ago."
Any other info would be greatly appreciated.

I am hoping to make contact with any descendants of William Robertson TUFF and Catherine Taylor HAMILTON of Rugby, Pierce Co, North Dakota. They moved to ND from Ontario Canada and I have Catherine's ancestry to share.
They had 12 children born between 1877 - 1898 = John, Ellen, (Senator) William TUFF, Peter, James, Mary, Harry, George, David, Charles, Catherine, Ernest. Their son William Hamilton TUFF married Eileen CARL and I found a daughter, Gertrude Tuff ANDERSON, but don't know if she is still alive :-)
Any help greatly appreciated!

I am looking for the death records of Phoebe Catherine HAMMOND. Phoebe died 1911 in Pierce Co., North Dakota. Her birth was 26 Aug 1847 in New York. I need to see if Phoebe listed her parents and their names and dates. Phoebe was half Iroquois from the Mohawk Tribe. So if I could find her father, then maybe I could find her Mom and all their children.
Thank you so much for your help.
