Erica Nicole Lott-Boomer's Family History Updated June 14, 2001
About Our Family Research
My dad, Freddie Marsh-Lott and I began to compile family tree information in a book that he purchased in a bookstore about 17 years ago. We got a lot of information from my maternal grandfather's aunt, Cora Erlandson's bible. She was from Norway and came to Racine, Wisconsin at the end of the 1800's. She lived to be 97 years old and I knew her as a child. My grandfather, John Elholm and I also used to try to find information on the Elholms and Erlandsons that came from Norway and Denmark. My grandmother, Francoise (Hircsh) Elholm is from France. They got married in Paris on May 10, 1946 following the end of WWII. My grandfather brought her back to the United States and they settled in Racine, Wisconsin where my grandfather was raised. I am hoping to find more information on my paternal grandparents, Jacob Lott and Ida Mae Marsh. My grandfather's parents, Daniel Lott and Lula Haynes died when he was very young and I am having difficulty finding any information on them. I know that they both died in Enterprise, Mississippi but I don't know anything else. I am excited to be able to find more information on these ancestors.
