Re: John Kost family - Minnesota
Hi Sue. Thank you for doing some digging on my behalf.
I did locate that 1920 Census record (I'm the one who added the footnote that it's "Kost" and not "Toot"). :-) I also knew about Wallace being in California (and in the military)...I'm still hoping to track down some more information on him though. I know he married a woman named Gertrude, but don't know if they had any children or not.
I have also begun looking through naturalization records for John and Sophie in Hennepin County, Minnesota... it sure is a slow process! But I suppose all the work will make finding their records all that much sweeter (knock on wood).
That New York immigration record is a new one for me. What info I've gathered so far lead me to assume Sophie was already married when she arrived in the U.S., but who really knows? I'll definately investigate it.
Thanks again, I appreciate it.
