I am trying to locate Robert Berens, son of John and Mattie Cottrell Berens. (Mattie's father John and my grandfather Clay were brothers.) Mattie was born in South Dakota on May 24, 1910 and was living in Mobridge at the time of the 1930 census. She became a nurse. Chances are pretty good that she and John Berens met and were married in the Mobridge SD area. Robert would have been born after 1930 (possibly well after 1930) and was reported to be living in Kansas by the time of his mother's death in 1980.
If anyone has any connection to this end of the Berens family, please contact me, or please pass my email address on. I am tracking the Cottrell family history and would love to add Robert's information and fill him in on his family.
