The names you mentioned are very, very familar.My mother-in-law, Janice Erlene Northcott Dake b: 4-9-1933, use to talk about these names.I know her family is from Minnesota.Erlene unfortunatly died April 1999.
I do have most of the family information in a box.Does the name Redhead link in with your stuff.She talked about that one to.
Her father, Earl Northcott m: Mila Hatton and lived in Yakima, WA until their deaths during the 70's and 80's. When Erlene and her sister Barbara (Bobbie) where young, they use to travel back to Minnesota to visit relatives.Earl did sheep shearing and they lived many months out of one of those "sheep shearing tents". I wish I knew what I was talking about! She hated it and to the end of her days, hated camping.
It will take me some time to go through the papers.I am currently working on my mother's family tree. Be patient and I promise to find as much as I can for you.
I believe if I'm correct, Erlene may be the decendant of Richard and Hester (Whicher)Northcott.
