Suzanne Thanks for your info. I have written a book of the Courser family if Heather ever wants some info on that side. They came to Michigan in 1875 from Vermont. I can give her a name of another Courser who would be willing to help her too. Lewis & Rosnnah were in South Dakota first so my husband's mother told me. I don't know how long they were there. It would be interesting to find out more about them. I have a death date for Rosannah, called Rose, of 17 June 1946 in Aberdeen, Wash. I have a death date for Richard Kolts 19 Jan. 1990 Grayland, Wash. Sincerely, Elaine C.
