My ggrandmother Pearl M. Theory and her brother Jim? were adopted out in the early 1900's by a Christopher Columbus in Indiana. Pearl was born 1/30/1899 in IN, died 6/11/73 at Birchwood Nursinghome Forest Lake MN. William was age 4 when adopted Pearl was 6? or 4 Somehow there is two years difference. Pearl went on to marry William Lonergren b 11/13/1896 buried Sunset Memorial on or around 1956. They had Fran in Austin MN, 2/2/19 (may not be exact year) Pearl worked at Brown & Bigelow MN for many years.
I'm looking for any Christopher Columbus in the Indiana area. And anyone with the last name of Lonergren! :)
