The Olds Hendry Brown, Schneider, Martin's of North Dakota Updated February 9, 2003
About Our Family Research
Looking for family links all our roads lead thru North Dakota at one point. The Schneiders came as Germans from Odesa Russia in 1885, the Martins from Berlin Germany, the Olds from Shropshire England, the Hendry clan from Edinborough, Scottland. Throw in the Fosmarks from Fosmark Norway and you have the root of out trees. All these roots converge in central North Dakota. The trail leads to Enchant Alberta for some and onto Seattle Washington. For others a straight line to the Pacific Northwest from North Dakota. My family story, the Olds, cross with my husband's family story in county records dated 1667 in Windsor Conn as Robert Ould, Olds was apprenticed to Dr. Jacob Drake. I, Rene Olds met Paul L. Drake in 1978 in Washington!
