Re: Mattis / Matthews from Ernestown Ontario
I am the great-grand-daughter of the brother of Cal Christian Bjerke (Charley) who married Victoria Mattis.Cal Christian was known to his family as Charley and used the name Charley Pederson Bjerke.
Victoria used the spelling of Mattis.She died in Colville, Stephens Co., Washington.She and Charley had 9 children.
Margaret Freeman Mattis married a man named Elmer Horton, possibly in Menominee, MI. They lived in Colburn and Edson, Wi; Beltrami Co., MN; and Washington. Emily Mattis married John E. Dodge.They also moved to Washinton in the early 1900s.I have the names of the Horton and Dodge children.
I am interested in obtaining any further information on the Mattis family you might have.Especially what happed to John Mattis, Victoria's father.If you'd like more information about the Bjerke family, I'm able to supply that.Please contact me.
