Thank you for posting those obits. My family was not listed, but is is so nice to find actual information rather than just teasers that lead me on a wild goose chase.
I am looking for Isak Lystad who captained the North Star Icebreaker which took Admiral Byrd on both polar expeditions.
His aunt, Ida Steverson, who lived in Bellingham, paid his fare from Norway.My husband's baby book notes a gift from Captain and Mrs. Lystad. I was told he is a gggrandfather, but I suspect he is a gggrand uncle instead.
Our Whatcom county family names are: Isak Lystad Ole E and Thora Seversen-Lund, Ole and Ida Lystad-Severson-Stenerson
I have a few obits from Whatcom Co that I will gladly share. Any information about any of the above would be appreciated. Thanks V. Lund
