jamie, Thank you for all the info, my mother (Betty Mikkelson,West,Moore) is 84 and could not remember her grandfathers name. She remembers almost everything and it bothered her for a while. She has fond memories of your grandfather Nels also as well as many of her other Aunts and Uncle's. If we can provide anything from her perspective or storys about them i would be glad to write them here. I am the youngest of her 13 children and only knew my grandpa mikkelson breifly as he passed in 1975 in Antigo. Betty's mom (Dora Lee Mikkelson passed when mom was only 13) then he married Marcella. Thanks again you made her day!!!!
