Hi, Linda. Thanks for the reply. I haven't worked on this line for quite some time, but I do remember posting for info.
This is the right Jacob Kisinger. He married my great grandmother Florence (Tompkins) Bartholomew Kisinger in Valley City, ND. I think they knew each other in Melrose, where her first husband died. After she moved to Valley City, he may have followed her out there. She went there after her first husband A J Bartholomew died because her son, my grandfather, was already out there.
Strangely, I have never found her death record, although the obit and family records confirm the info. I've been to their court house and contacted the state archives. I think ND lost it. At the time I posted to this board, I was trying to find out why she went to ND. Then I found out grampa was already there.
I did receive several responses to my query at the time. I can look that up and send you what I have if you wish. If I remember, he may have died in ND and was taken to St. Cloud for burial. Give me a bit of time and I'll look that up for you. Please contact me at my juolson@yahoo address. Thanks. Judy
