This message is actually geared toward Sandy. I KNOW I am related to you and am sooo excited I stumbled upon the research you ladies have on here!! Ellen was my grandma. I've been having such a hard time trying to get information for the Larsons and the Ericksons. I could get the sibling's names, and I had heard grandma had gone to Minnesota from Michigan on a wagon train, but that's about it. Do you have any tips on how to get more information (I need alot of help on the Erickson side). I've been trying to look things up here and there for years, and this thread has been my first breakthrough. Thank you sooo much for all your hard work!
